I'm supposed to be flying Sat. and the airport I'm flying out of has the new AIT scanners. Supposedly(from the TSA website) the scanners are safe for pregnant women and children but I'm concerned. The studies on how safe these new scanners are, are done by the government,TSA and the AIT manufacturers. Do you really think that any of these people would admit if they weren't safe? Many scientists warn that while it is very low level radiation frequent fliers and pregnant women should opt out. Beause the machines do have the potential of admitting high radiation. So I guess what I'm trying to say is how do you really know that it's not blasting your body with tons of radiation- unless your an expert you'd have no way of knowing. However the alternative pat down is more than that. I've heard you can expect for your genitals to be touched and your shirt lifted. I guess I'll just get violated as opposed to harming my unborn child.
