To Scan or Not To Scan?

The Debate Over Your Body at the Airport

The unions that represent pilots for American Airlines and US Airways have urged their members to avoid the full-body scanners at airport security checkpoints.

The unions, which represent a total of 16,500 pilots, say they worry about the health effects of being exposed to the scanner's radiation.

The scanners are operated in 65 airports nationwide, and use radiation to create what looks like a nude image of the person being screened, in order to reveal weapons or contraband hidden under clothing.

According to the Transportation Security Administration the levels of radiation emitted by the scanners are too low to pose a health risk, but we want to know what you think?

How do you feel about being required to have a body scan before boarding a plane?

Give us your feedback at cnn.com/kyra and we’ll read some or your responses today on CNN Newsroom at 9am-11am EST with Kyra Phillips.
