Those not convinced by the safety of backscattering X-ray machines being rolled out throughout our airports can seek a peace of mind from Rocky Flats Gear, a company manufacturing undergarments for blocking radiation shining at private parts. The non-lead lined (not sure what the actual material used is) underwear and bras can also be helpful for paranoiacs getting dental X-rays and radiologists working the foot pedal on a fluoroscope.
