Scanner Concerns

I read the article “Our Irradiated Lives” (May, on low-level radiation) and was, for the most part, in agreement with the story’s overall tone. However, the author stated, “No known health risks are associated with millimeter wave” (airport scanner technology). An article published in Technology Review describes an emerging theory that radiation of these wavelengths has the potential to damage DNA.

A number of sources state that millimeter wave technology is associated with no known health risks—the key word being “known.” New scientific findings are always emerging, and perhaps this journal article will help refine our knowledge of such technology to the point where a risk should be attached to its use. The history of science is full of instances in which exposures once held to be harmless were later associated with defined risks; cigarette smoke and DDT are only two of many possible examples. As we stated in our article, the best way to avoid exposure to radiation from any airport scanning device is to arrive early enough to undergo a manual patdown.

 

Positive Connection

Each of us has the power to act as a vigilant gatekeeper of our mind. Negative emotions such as fear, anger and sadness are alien to our true spiritual nature, and such emotions will evaporate in the warmth of universal love and understanding. Through meditation we have the power to reconnect with our spiritual Source.

In addition to the spiritual aid attributed to meditation by a variety of faith traditions, research has ascribed a number of health benefits to this practice including improvements in mood and cognition.
