New Security Measures: How Safe Are Body Scanners?

Recent researches have shown that ct scans rely on dangerous radiation which is a known carcinogen, even in the relatively small amounts used with most CT's. There is also fear that there are a number of uncertainties involved in predicting cancer with the use of these scanners. This makes me wonder just how safe/unsafe this proposed full body scanners are especially for frequent flyers.

it would be easier if people just stripped n.aked before boarding a plane. It would make checking in more convenient for the checkers.

Once in the plane, they could be issued new clothes by the flight crew. Or just wear bikinis and briefs/boxers.  The plane temperature should be adjusted to suit the weather.

The health hazard posed by the scanners are negligible.

They are not built for humans to live in rather a quick examination of the body lasting no more than 60 seconds. . . . I think. I guess the answer lies in the name . . . . 'scanner'.

I'd more worried if i stayed there for long periods.

I can understand your worries as C.T scanners have a high amount of radiation as opposed to regular x-ray. I think they should have signs where pregnant women or those that suspect that they might be wear lead shields to cover around there but then again women of child bearing age shouldn't be exposed to that amount of radiation albeit small.
