The EU banned backscatter X-ray machines from airport scanning in November 2011 until they can be proven safe. Scanners that use millimeter radio wave technology instead of X-ray technology are permitted. So you won't have to be concerned if the airport you go through uses millimeter radio waves instead of X-rays.
So now that you're on the plane, not to worry except for the food, right? Wrong. You're exposed to more natural radiation at higher altitudes, which is another reason to avoid the airport X-ray scanners.
You probably don't know about this occasional, undisclosed hazard
Cabin air, contaminated beyond what most know and accept, can do serious damage to your health. There is a hidden hazard the airline industry doesn't want you to know about. It's called aerotoxic syndrome, and it's real.
If you detect a faint scent of burning oil or see a vague trace of smoke in the cabin, and maybe notice you or others are getting woozy, it's time to don that small, inexpensive portable activated charcoal mask you got online here. (http://www.aerotoxic.org/aerotoxic)
If you're prone toward motion sickness from air or sea travel, make sure you have high quality high potency ginger capsules on hand.
Watch what you eat and don't drink the water...
Carry some organic raw trail mix packets if you can. Try to avoid too much street vended foods, unless you carry and use an item that's perfect for purifying water and protecting you against infections - iodine. You can choose from Lugol's solution (potassium iodide), Nascent iodine and Iodoral.
In addition to purifying whatever water you drink, the iodine acts as an anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Too much iodine taken over a short period is usually eliminated through the urine. So use it amply when traveling.
In order to maintain your friendly gut bacteria levels for digestion and immunity, carry an abundant supply of power packed probioticsthat don't require refrigeration.
Whenever you have the opportunity, indulge in whatever probiotic rich fermented foods may be available: Kim-Chi, sauerkraut, and miso are some examples.
Keep your vitamin C levels high with a newly developed type of oral vitamin C. It's called liposomal C. It comes in packets containing gels, and it gets more vitamin C into your tissue and blood cells than all other methods, even mega-dose IV C.
