AverageAmericanGuy: fusillade762: While I'm always fine with a good "TSA gets their comeuppance" story, in this case I have to ask: what's going to happen to breast milk if you x-ray it?

The x-rays can degrade the quality of the proteins in the milk. If a mutation were to occur, you could end up causing your child to develop cancer.

The TSA causes cancer.


Could also turn into a breast milk based superhero, if I understand my comics right.

Just Googling around a bit the consensus seems to be that there's no danger from an X-ray to breast milk (whether in the bottle or the breast).  That being said, the TSA apparently does have a different procedure available, so if they didn't follow it, that falls on them.  The better way to handle it would be to just mandate that breast milk is scanned like everything else.


I found this on AZCentral:
The Health Psychics Society, which studies the effects of radiation, says that it's safe to bring bottles through the X-ray machines used in airports because the minute amounts of radiation from such things as airport scanners and medical diagnostic procedures do not harm breast milk.

As long as the psychics approve it, I think we're in the clear.

When i was breastfeeding and had overflow I would hand pump my milk and store it in glass bottles in the freezer. My doctor told me that micro waving would denature the milk.
F*ck the TSA.


Sure microwaves x-rays all of those... rays are all the same.

Bad rays...BAD!

To summarize: ignorance and stupidity from all involved cause strife.

/Did you know the only radiation that's green is visible light with a wavelength roughly between 495-570 nm?

Yeah, I see those TSA guys using the x-ray machines to reheat leftovers all the time.
