Default Smartmedia and Airport Security

Can SmartMedia safely be taken through sairport security machines or do I need some protection for the cards?

This is my first question on this forum so if I've not done this correctly please let me know.

ZDNET or c/net published a warning on airports right after 9/11. Remember there are many brands and setting on XRAY machines and wands they use. I cannot remember for sure which it said to stay clear of. Also there is one on the US Mail by the CompactFlash Association CompactFlash Association Issues Warning Concerning Risk Of Irradiation Damage To Semiconductors Through U.S. Mail CompactFlash User Alert By default.
Cannot find whole story on this. Best to ask and note time/date and name of person at airport/post office in case of problem
