Numbers, Reuven? The airport screen has been said here to be less than a chest x-ray (~0.001 rem?) My counter here says 0.00001 rem/hr.background. 
  Viva 10x USA background radiation for better health!

I bet that Mr. H. Long is unfamiliar with the 
now classic "How to Lie with Statistics" by Darrell Huff,
Otherwise he would be more cautious and guarded in his
unequivocal endorsement. [radsafe Digest, Vol 74, Issue 10]

One does not need to resort to the expensive flying mode
of prolonging one's life - A "healthy" (and "hefty!") 
dose of low energy radiation can be currently absorbed 
at the "new" x-ray total body booths at
the near airport.
