Millimeter Wave Scanner - Possible Health Effects

Possible Health Effects

Passive scanners do not emit radiation. Active scanners emit millimeter wavelength radiation which is non-ionizing—i.e., it does not have enough energy to directly damage DNA—and is not known to be genotoxic.

While the majority of animal cancer studies show no response to chronic exposure to microwave radiation, some show an increased rate of tumor growth. The same increase also occurs in chronically-stressed animals not exposed to radiation. Other studies have found that exposure to millimeter wave radiation reduced metastasis of tumor cells.

    Frances Wright (1795–1852)

    I hold it that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.... It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.
