Stay Out Of Airport Full Body Scanners



They say that anything can kill you these days. The poisons that we use in our homes, the plastic water bottles we use everyday, the questionable ways that are food is grown and sprayed with insecticides. I think we all know that many of these things in modern life should be avoided, used properly, or thoroughly washed. But, when it comes to walking though the Full Body Scanners at the airport, most of us don't even give it a second thought. The government says that the radiation put off from these machines is less than we would receive flying at cruising altitude for just a few minutes. So, what's the issue? Don't believe everything you are told, especially about Full Body Scanners.

According to the TSA’s Frequently Asked Questions page, the machine “uses harmless electromagnetic waves to detect potential threats, which are highlighted on a generic outline of a person appearing on a monitor attached to the unit. If no anomalies are detected, an ‘OK’ appears on the screen with no outline.”

Unfortunately, this is deliberately misleading. A closer look into millimeter wave technology and the ways in which it affects the human body during an average TSA screening reveals a truth that the government doesn’t want you to know. The doses of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the TSA’s millimeter wave technology machines can cause gene mutations, nerve damage, sterility, affect the immune system, and even cause cancer.

A World Health Organization report reveals that millimeter waves not only heat the skin but also damage eyesight and cause cancer, particularly cancer of the skin.

Skip the Full Body Scanner and Opt for a Pat Down

Bottom line - Air travelers, when faced with the Full Body Scanner at the airport, should Opt-Out and choose a manual pat-down instead. Even though it's physically invasive and admittedly unconstitutional, air travelers can minimize their radiation exposure and thus minimize the risk of developing cancer by not subjecting yourself to these Full Body Scanners.

Pele's Curse - Follow Up

Back in 2014 we posted an article titled "Pele's Cursewhich warned visitors about the perils of taking home lava rocks from Hawaii. The curse of Pele apparently will bring down tremendous woes to those who take her "children". Each year hundreds of packages arrive at the Honolulu Post Office addressed to Madam Pele and containing lava rocks from all over the islands.

Recently, we received a package from Sandy from Canada, who saw the post Pele's Curse on this blog and sent back many corals she had collected on her recent trip to Maui. Although her husband thought she was being over cautious,  my feeling is that it's better to be safe than sorry. This is not the first package we have received from visitors that contained lava rocks, coral and shells. It's best to just leave these things here in Hawaii in the first place. Here is a photo of the package she sent.


Here are some other stories that we have found;

Enclosed are 5 lava rocks that my wife & I took from the Big Island during our honeymoon in April of 1991. We've regretted it ever since. Our luck has been tough the last 13 years. Well, today is our 13th Wedding Anniversary. We've rededicated ourselves to each other and setting things right. ..not only with each other, but with Pele. Please return these missing rocks to her along with our apologies.  Sincerely, T. & C.G., Bellingham, WA  

I just arrived home from a fantastic vacation in Kona. While walking on the public access beach at the Sands Resort I picked up a small piece of lava rock & coral to bring home. When I arrived home and unpacked I was showing my husband my souvenirs and he panicked when I pulled out the rock & coral. He wouldn't touch it and immediately took out our laptop to show me your website. So...I've only been home a few hours and I'm already writing this note to return the stone. My apologies for the indiscretion, I never realized the religious significance of the stones or the superstitions against removing them from the island. I had some of the best days and greatest luck of my life the last few days and I have no desire to change the balance.  Thank you for creating this site and providing me with the opportunity to have these items replaced respectfully where they belong.  Best regards, V.W., Trenton, NJ 

If you are having bad luck, have taken any lava rocks from Hawaii, and you have found that Pelle's Curse has a hold of you, you can send them back to us at:
