Europe Bans X-Ray Body Scanners Used at U.S. Airports
A small number of cancer cases would result from scanning hundreds of millions of passengers a year. For some, that's a health issue
"The European Union on Monday prohibited the use of X-ray body scanners in European airports, parting ways with the U.S. Transportation Security Administration, which has deployed hundreds of the scanners as a way to screen millions of airline passengers for explosives hidden under clothing.
"The European Commission, which enforces common policies of the EU's 27 member countries, adopted the rule “in order not to risk jeopardizing citizens’ health and safety.”
"European countries will be allowed to use an alternative body scanner, on that relies on radio frequency waves, which have not been linked to cancer. The TSA has also deployed hundreds of those machines – known as millimeter-wave scanners – in U.S. airports. But unlike Europe, it has decided to deploy both types of scanners.
That's just the X-ray scanners. Europe still has the milimeter wave scanners to measure ... sizes.
Speak for yourself. Some of us need a lot more than millimeters.
Sorry for the lack of clarity. I've quoted an additional paragraph to head off some of the potential confusion.

The TSA Blog: TSA Year to Date Report: A Look at the Year So Far
Hilarious. At least the TSA's blog has a sense of humor. Warheads, grenades, loaded guns, gassed up chainsaw, cell phones smuggled inside a VCR, and a chastity belt?!?!
There are many things wrong with TSA. It's mainly security theater, spending more time catching pins in old people's legs than anything else.
