What they need to do is dump x-ray body scans in favor of not non radiated millimeter scans which do three things.

Whats the fuss? Let the scanners motivate your to eat right and work out.

I look great naked and don't mind others enjoying the view.

WHAT'S BEING LOOKED FOR, BOMBS AND METAL?

MACHINES EXIST THAT DETECT BOTH THESE ITEMS JUST BY WALKING BY THESE MACHINES.
