TSA plans to study health effects X-ray scanners
The TSA now says it plans to study the health effects of X-ray body scanners.
The move comes after a PBS NewsHour and ProPublica investigation found the body scanners may increase your risk for cancer.
The TSA maintains the scanners are safe, but an article in business week says the agency has never conducted its own research.
