Good info, thank you! I suppose the real question is to compare the risk of skin irradiation to the risk of a terrorist attack, the likes of with would be thwarted by the new X-ray technology, as opposed so some other terrorist attack which would either slip through or not happen on airplaines. Has that calculation even been done?
Good point, Emily. I imagine TSA would say they’ve done the calculation.
Skin radiation exists. I am positive.
