Senator Bennet (R-UT) introduced something called SAFER AIR Act, which mandates full body scanners in every US airport by 2013.  Fully body RADIATION scanners.  These things are NOT safe.  One of the best writeups on them is over at AirlineReporter’s website (click here and add a comment; they’re being sent to the Senators!), including the link to the UK article based on scientific input about how the amount of radiation is potentially much worse than being reported.

This is Senate bill S.3536.  I’ve already called my two Senators and told them that I fly 100 times per year (50 round trips), and my family is prone to genetic mutation.  I would be at risk for cancer, were I subjected to this monstrosity twice per week.  A list of Senators on the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee is below, and each name is an active link to their contact form.  Contact each member and give them your opinion on these horrid machines. And even if your Senator is not on this list, contact them and tell them to throw out S.3536, for all of our health and safety!
