ANY amount of radiation inflicts free radical damage to DNA and can adversely affect our genes and be mutagenic. It's no secret - X-Rays are cumulative in the body. You don't want any more than absolutely necessary.
Sugarcoating it to fit your needs doesn't change the fact that the unaware people will be purposely exposed to permanent cell damage, until the next airport invention comes out that provides a safer solution. Ultrasound? .
Bottom line is that US Government should not have the right to put me through more X-rays. Refuse? Add 15 minutes to include the pre-patdown spiel, then a quite thorough frisking, which includes lifting the blouse and turning the waistband out to examine why it is tight. Wearing an adult diaper? God help you...
