Well, I can agree with you on the pharmaceutical companies and their conspiracy to make money off of our ailments and sicknesses. And yet they hold the power because they have the vast lab resources to combat any sickness that they never concocted themselves.

As for the aforementioned scanners, sooner or later it will have mainstream application, just as in the movies.

Your other choice is not to fly at all. Or buy your own damn plane.
