Body scanners are now in place in more than 50 airports across the US and over the next few months, will be in place in more airports nationwide. There has been much controversy over these scanners, ranging from privacy concerns to the convenience factor. However, there is one issue that Indiana personal injury lawyers believe has not been addressed enough, and that's the health impact of the scanners.
The biggest health concerns about the scanners relate to the amount of radiation that they emit. The problem is that there is very little solid information about the volumes of radiation we are talking about here. That's because it seems to be only the manufacturers who know how much radiation the scanners are programmed to emit during a typical body scan, and the companies inform us that the amount is very low. That doesn't really help assure us.
