As mentioned on the website on February 2. 2010 in the article, The FBI Continues To Break The Law, travelers who fly frequently and are exposed to additional radiation, are at higher risk of developing cancer ("There is a very dangerous problem that could erupt if they use the industrial version of the Mind Reading Software, which includes a scanner that acts as a MRI scan of the brain - cancer rates will go up among people who travel often").

On February 5. 2010 the Inter-Agency Committee on Radiation Safety confirmed the Judiciary Report's claims via their report, in concluding, "Body scanning raises raises radiation exposure" and that "Air passengers should be made aware of the health risks of airport body screenings and governments must explain any decision to expose the public to higher levels of cancer-causing radiation."

Pregnant women and children should not be subject to scanning, even though the radiation dose from body scanners is "extremely small," said the Inter-Agency Committee on Radiation Safety report, which is restricted to the agencies concerned and not meant for public circulation. The group includes the European Commission, International Atomic Energy Agency, Nuclear Energy Agency and the World Health Organization.

A more accurate assessment about the health risks of the screening won't be possible until governments decide whether all passengers will be systematically scanned or randomly selected, the report said. Governments must justify the additional risk posed to passengers, and should consider "other techniques to achieve the same end without the use of ionizing radiation."

President Barack Obama has pledged $734 million to deploy airport scanners that use x-rays and other technology to detect explosives, guns and other contraband. The U.S. and European countries including the U.K. have been deploying more scanners at airports after the attempted bombing on Christmas Day of a Detroit-bound Northwest airline flight...
