TSA body scanner radiation.
For those who know me it will come as no surprise that I don't fly often, I much prefer to drive when I travel as it makes it so much easier to visit Family and Friends along the way.
So it came as a bit of a shock to learn that there is now on the market special underwear for frequent flyers, while my driving may not be perfect it certainly doesn't require any special underwear so I'm gonna stick to driving.
Inventor Jeff Buske has said he has created new clothing products that should protect flyers from TSA body scanner radiation. Additionally, the new bras and underwear should help flyers who want to keep their private parts a mystery.
Dubbed "Rocky Flats Gear," Buske says he does not care about the politics of the situation, but instead wants to protect citizens from unwanted radiation.
Women can wear special bras or underwear, and men can wear underwear with a fig leaf design that has properties that will block radiation.
The flexible metals will not trip detectors.
Buske has also made it clear that while the fig leaf will hide your genitals it will not hide a weapon or other items from the scanners.
Not too sure about this... when the inventor uses "should" twice in the opening paragraph instead of "will".
