I am using 7218 500T film.

But check with others just to make sure.

Although I've forgotten most of my university particle physics stuff - visible light is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum - probably why metal detectors are thought of as a possible threat to film, especially as they are AC and therefore have a frequency and all those other associated scary words like wavelength etc...
This should clear it up.
Film gets messed up from exposure and stuff(i use video.) Video gets messed up from magnets. Yes visible light is electromagnetic, not magnetic, and metal detectors are magnetic, as they do not put off energy in the form as heat, sound, light, etc. therefore they must not be electromagnetic(light) waves. That is why whenever I go through an airport I have to take care of my tapes, but film should be just fine.

So the answer is no.
