Airport Security and Kids4

As of Saturday, February 4, 2012, results of my poll "Clothing Limits (in Public Places) for Kids", http://www. misterpoll.com/polls/503847, indicated that more than 91% (85%) parents of under-11 boys (girls) are seriously thinking dressing their children in diapers or briefs (panties) only, stripped to waist, or lesser in the airport area (to facilitate airport screening) as well as duing actual airline travel, apparently beause they are not comfortable with heart- and brain-damaging secuity gates or cancer-producing full-body scan. The other most important issue, highlighted in my poll "Airport Scurity and Kids3", http://www.misterpoll.com/polls/475983, is the inceased awareness of parents that clothing and shoes, which pass through X-ray scanner become seondary sources of radiation. Hence it will not be advisable to put them on immediately after coming out of belt. However, keeping the kids undressed for longer periods, in particular after Graded Unclothed Screening http://www.misterpoll.com/forums/135040/topics/170751 (cf. Airport Security and Kids http://www.misterpoll.com/polls/356908), Integrated Unclothed Screening http://www.misterpoll.com/forums/135040/topics/170752 (cf. Airport Security and Kids2 http://www.misterpoll.com/polls/369487) or Complete Strip Search (cf. Airport Security and Kids1 http://www.misterpoll.com/polls/369674) may be uncomforable for them. This poll tries to find alternates.
