The Australian Federal Government has announced that as from July 2012, all people taking international flights will be subjected to full body scans at the airport. I find this outrageous. They do not know what the radiation effects are going to be of subjecting people to this. They say it is to stop terrorism, and sure we need to be vigilant, but this is over the top. Why not make everyone who takes a train or bus have one as well? At least if you have a normal xray a medical professional is doing it. In this case a customs officer will be in charge. What happens if there is a malfunction? Some company is making a motsa out of this. No overseas trips for me. Not happy Jan.
