New TSA Molecular SCANNER Can Scan Every Molecule In Your Body

Quietly, without much ado, the TSA has been replacing its X-ray body scanners (known as backscatter x-ray machines) with new machines called millimeter-wave scanners at major US airports.

They claim this has NOTHING to do with the fact that the backscatter machines emit a small amount of inonizing radiation that may increase cancer risk and cause between 80 and 100 additional cancer cases a year, according to research scientists at the University of California, San Francisco.

Instead, they claim that they are replacing the original machines only to speed up the security process. The X-ray machines will be re-installed in smaller airports.

The replacement machines do not emit similar radiation as the X-ray scanners.


But, That’s Nothing Compared To the News of What’s Coming Down the Pike…

A 3rd new generation scanning technology “wunderkind” has reared its powerful head.

This new “Picosecond” molecular laser scanner will be able to scan every molecule in the human body from a distance of over 50 meters.

It can detect microscopic amounts of drug and weapsons residues and materials used in building or using explosive devices on your clothing or skin, not to mention everything contained in your stomach and gut, including that breakfast burrito or latte you chugged down earlier that morning.

But that’s not the worst of it; this machine will be able to detect how much adrenaline is running through your system.

Fear, anyone? Nervous? Scared? Or just in a plain irritated mood? This machine will know just how upset, scared, nervous or out of sorts you happen to be.

There is the possibility that these advanced molecular detection devices could be installed in airports, police vehicles, rail stations, popular gathering spots and locations, even street intersections, anywhere law enforcement and Homeland Security deems necessary.

To see the difference between the millimeter and X-ray machines, check out the compaison chart, below.

Name X-Ray (Backscatter) Millimeter Wave
What Does It Look Like?
How does it work? A backscatter machine directs a low intensity X-ray beam over the surface of the body. Instead of transmitting rays through the body, as medical X-ray machines do, these backscatter rays are reflected back to detectors, which convert them into a 2D image that resembles a chalky sketch. A millimeter wave machine beams radio frequency waves over the surface of the body using two rotating antennas. The energy reflected back from the body is analyzed for anomalies. Because of controversy over a “virtual strip search,” TSA swapped the image with a generic unisex outline that resembles the cartoon character Gumby.
What energy is used? Low levels of ionizing radiation. According to the TSA, each scan gives off less than 10 microREM of radiation. This is equivalent to the radiation a passenger would receive flying for two to three minutes at typical cruising altitude. Low-powered millimeter waves, which are not a form of ionizing radiation. (Ionizing radiation is powerful enough to strip electrons off atoms and damage DNA, potentially leading to cancer.)
What does a security officer see? 
What’s the process like? After you walk through the rectangular paneled scanner, a security officer sitting in another location looks at the image on a computer. If she spots an irregularity, she notifies the local officer, who then inspects the passenger further. At the end of the process, the image is deleted. After you walk into the phone booth-like scanner, a security officer inspects the image displayed on a monitor attached to the machine. If the machine detects a threat, a yellow square appears on the suspect part of the body. If not, a large OK sign pops up.
What’s the false alarm rate? More on false alarms 5 percent, according to a British study. 23-54 percent, according to tests at airports in Italy and Germany, as well as initial tests in the U.S.
What countries use it in airports? The U.K. (not for routine screening but only for passengers who raise suspicion or set off the metal detector), Nigeria, and the U.S. The European Union recently prohibited X-ray body scanners. The Netherlands, Canada, the U.K., Italy, Australia, and the U.S.
What U.S. airports use it? Check out this searchable database for a more complete list BOS, JFK, LAX, MEM, ORD, SAN, SAT, SEA, STL, SJU ATL, BWI, DEN, DCA, DFW, EWR, IAH, IND, MSP, SFO
What are known health/safety issues? Even though the radiation X-ray scanners emit is miniscule (equivalent to two to three minutes of flying at altitude), two peer-reviewed studies estimated that six or 100 U.S. airline passengers each year could develop cancer from the machines. No known health risks.
How many exist? About 250 X-ray scanners are currently in U.S. airports. About 300 millimeter-wave scanners are currently in U.S. airports. The TSA plans to install 250 more by next spring.
How much does it cost? The U.S. uses Rapiscan’s Secure 1000 scanner, which costs $170,000 to $180,000 a piece. The U.S. uses L-3 Communications’ ProVision scanner, which costs $170,000 to $180,000 a piece.
