Los Alamos Scientist: TSA Scanners Shred Human DNA

This is Insane. Don’t ever get scanned by TSA.

While the application of scientific knowledge creates technology, sometimes the technology is later redefined by science. Such is the case with terahertz (THz) radiation, the energy waves that drive the technology of the TSA: back scatter airport scanners.

Emerging THz technological applications

THz waves are found between microwaves and infrared on the electromagnetic spectrum. This type of radiation was chosen for security devices because it can penetrate matter such as clothing, wood, paper and other porous material that’s non-conducting.
This type of radiation seems less threatening because it doesn’t penetrate deeply into the body and is believed to be harmless to both people and animals.

THz waves may have applications beyond security devices. Research has been done to determine the feasibility of using the radiation to detect tumors underneath the skin and for analyzing the chemical properties of various materials and compounds. The potential marketplace for THz driven technological applications may generate many billions of dollars in revenue.


Because of the potential profits, intense research on THz waves and applications has mushroomed over the last decade.

Health risks

The past several years the possible health risks from cumulative exposure to THz waves was mostly dismissed. Experts pointed to THz photons and explained that they are not strong enough to ionize atoms or molecules; nor are they able to break the chains of chemical bonds. They assert—and it is true—that while higher energy photons like ultraviolet rays and X-rays are harmful, the lower energy ones like terahertz waves are basically harmless. [Softpedia.com]

While that is true, there are other biophysics at work. Some studies have shown that THZ can cause great genetic harm, while other similar studies have shown no such evidence of deleterious affects.

Boian Alexandrov at the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico recently published an abstract with colleagues, “DNA Breathing Dynamics in the Presence of a Terahertz Field ” that reveals very disturbing—even shocking—evidence that the THz waves generated by TSA scanners is significantly damaging the DNA of the people being directed through the machines, and the TSA workers that are in close proximity to the scanners throughout their workday.

From the abstracts own synopsis:

“We consider the influence of a terahertz field on the breathing dynamics of double-stranded DNA. We model the spontaneous formation of spatially localized openings of a damped and driven DNA chain, and find that linear instabilities lead to dynamic dimerization, while true local strand separations require a threshold amplitude mechanism. Based on our results we argue that a specific terahertz radiation exposure may significantly affect the natural dynamics of DNA, and thereby influence intricate molecular processes involved in gene expression and DNA replication.”

In layman’s terms what Alexandrov and his team discovered is that the resonant effects of the THz waves bombarding humans unzips the double-stranded DNA molecule. This ripping apart of the twisted chain of DNA creates bubbles between the genes that can interfere with the processes of life itself: normal DNA replication and critical gene expression.

Other studies have not discovered this deadly effect on the DNA because the research only investigated ordinary resonant effects.

Nonlinear resonance, however, is capable of such damage and this sheds light on the genotoxic effects inherent in the utilization of THz waves upon living tissue. The team emphasizes in their abstract that the effects are probabilistic rather than deterministic.

Unfortunately, DNA damage is not limited only to THz wave exposure. Other research has been done that reveals lower frequency microwaves used by cell phones and Wi-Fi cause some harm to DNA over time as well.

    For more reviews and endorsements of Political Ponerology, click here.


    “In the author’s opinion, Ponerology reveals itself to be a new branch of science born out of historical need and the most recent accomplishments of medicine and psychology. In light of objective naturalistic language, it studies the causal components and processes of the genesis of evil, regardless of the latter’s social scope. We may attempt to analyze these ponerogenic processes which have given rise to human injustice, armed with proper knowledge, particularly in the area of psychopathology. Again and again, as the reader will discover, in such a study, we meet with the effects of pathological factors whose carriers are people characterized by some degree of various psychological deviations or defects.” (Lobaczewski, 42)

    With very few exceptions down the ages, discussions in moral philosophy – the study of right conduct – have failed to systematically investigate the origin, nature, and course of evil in a manner free from supernatural imaginings. Evil was often considered something to be endured rather than something that could be understood and eliminated by rational measures. And – as Lobaczewski demonstrates – the origin of evil actually lies outside the boundaries of the conventional worldview within which the earlier moral inquiries and literary explorations were conducted. Evil requires a truly modern and scientific approach to lay bare its secrets. This approach is called “ponerology”, the study of evil, from the Greek “poneros” = evil.

    The original manuscript of this book went into the furnace minutes before a secret police raid in Communist Poland. The second copy, painfully reassembled by scientists working under impossible conditions of violence and repression, was sent via courier to the Vatican. Its receipt was never acknowledged – the manuscript and all valuable data lost. In 1984, the third and final copy was written from memory by the last survivor of the original researchers: Andrew Lobaczewski. Zbigniew Brzezinski blocked its publication.

    After half a century of suppression, this book is finally available.

    Political Ponerology is shocking in its clinically spare descriptions of the true nature of evil. It is poignant in its more literary passages revealing the immense suffering experienced by the researchers contaminated or destroyed by the disease they were studying.

    Political Ponerology is a study of the founders and supporters of oppressive political regimes. Lobaczewski’s approach analyzes the common factors that lead to the propagation of man’s inhumanity to man. Morality and humanism cannot long withstand the predations of this evil. Knowledge of its nature – and its insidious effect on both individuals and groups – is the only antidote.

    Read an interview with the author, Andrew Lobaczewski.

      Ha! This is really good stuff! Those folks know what they are talking about. It seems like to me the Zionists are all Psychopaths.

      Then there are the other Psychopaths.

      They nailed’em.

    Cult Techniques which Enfeeble,
    Now Used on the Sheeple:

    “The Awakening Process can Cause You to Sink,
    Realizing the Controllers Know All You Think,
    They’re Enabled by Knowing All You Hold Dear,
    They Created You, All Thought They Steer,
    Your Pastimes, Conversations, Perturbations,
    Are the Same as Your Friends, All Your Relations,
    With Upgraded Morals, You’re Sure to Accept
    Naked Scans and Groping, Pretence to Detect,
    Rape, Child Molestation, You are Desensitized
    By Programming Movies Absorbed via Eyes,
    Embedded, Imprinted within Your Brain,
    So Entertaining, Yet You Felt No Pain,
    Externally Informed, You Feel Some Vitality,
    To Engage by Prompts into Debased Morality”

    The few intelligent humans (both in knowledge and in the realm of philosophy) on this planet are vastly outnumbered by humans who behave mostly like animals. These “animals” exist on every level of the class structure (lower, middle, upper). The lower and middle-class are so brainwashed that they in fact protect their oppressors. Thus, any of us intelligent humans who want to fight back have to not only fight the elite, but we have to fight our neighbor as well. It’s impossible. It doesn’t matter how much skill we have. They’ve already won through power of numbers.

    These pathetic enemies of the free world seem uninterested (or simply incapable) in working towards a more civilized world. Instead, they simply focus on immediate personal survival. This is why they are animals. All of our laws are designed to protect the wealthy, and the poor people just keep their heads down in order to stay out of the way.

    Why do we hire uneducated people to be police officers? Because these people won’t ask questions or disobey orders. Corrupt bank calls the Sheriff to evict a home-owner? Sure, absolutely! Keep Bradley Manning in torturous isolation? Sure, why not! Protect a broken, inefficient, absolutely disgraceful prison system? Absolutely! I mean, gosh. They need their $50K per year so they can go drive their big pick-up truck and watch the Superbowl with their other cop friends; friends who like them, applied to be a cop because they like guns and the authority to express their dominance over other human beings.

    This whole world is screwed.

      Blaming parents is truly the lowest form of creative irresponsibility. I was born in the fifties – I was a freshman in highschool when Nixon broke the Bretton Woods Currency Accord – that means that it was my parents’ generation who set us all up – or was it their parents, who created a Ponzi Scheme unfunded liability Social Security Administration that was doomed to bankruptcy after seventy years, as is now unfolding. What will be your generation’s culpability? How about blaming your parents for everything instead of being politically active and working your ass off to research a little deeper. BTW, the message that ‘it’s all the ‘boomers fault’ is just one more of the myriad of bigotries that have been promoted to keep We The People from hanging together and defeating these globalist bastards – the last thing these elite behind the scenes world rulers want is for us to cooperate with each other and take them down. Ditch the Left/Right paradigm, stop obsessing about black vs white, rich vs poor, christian vs muslim, etc. Instead concentrate on restoring something we once had, which was great – that is to say: Localized Power instead of Centralized Power. Do a search for Ron Paul’s ‘what if’ speech if you want to see that there is some real chance to recover…

      wow such intelligent people on here I wish I knew more in real life. there is always a chance to recover, as long as we think for ourselves and analyze everything, seek knowledge..and pass what knowledge we have to our children, we must be smart when it comes to reproducing, raising a child with knowledge of the world, current events and understanding what the last few generations went through at least..
      It is what they want us to do, focus on BS news coverage of stories that cause fuel for hatred, white against black, burning a Quran and having a debate about a mosque when we have real questions to ask our govt
      but will they allow us to ask them? no, they will make up stories and movies and games to distract us.
      keep it up intelligent people God Bless. Remain brave. Happy New Years

    • Bob Nichols  January 12, 2011 at 11:12 am

      Those are good, encouraging words, Freedom. I’m sure everybody appreciates them, I certainly do.

      In your pep-talk you said: “… and pass what knowledge we have to our children,…”

      That is kinda the point, isn’t it? It is also the point of a deadly attack of the weapons. Are you getting the picture, Freedom? The weapons utterly devastate your sperm or eggs, depending on your gender and children are now an impossibility for hundreds of millions of would be parents. They are instead, Sterile.

    People…the only way to really correct this is to have everyone CARE. Not to use the scanners. Not as a protest, just as individual self preservation. Does not matter how dangerous, how many laws broken..as long as the majority of Americans put up with this..nothing will change.

    Too many people do not CARE..and there lies the real problem. The TSA would have no power, if we just said “Opt-out” again and again and again….
