Europeans have always been sensible when it comes to protecting its citizens from health hazards.
They require labeling of GMO foods, and now they are banning airport scanners until more information is available about the radiation exposure and cancer risk.
Sadly, in the United States, the corporations who profit from the sales of these things can convince the government that there is a need. Maybe some day I will research the lobbying that goes on, but I prefer to blog about cancer.
But this is a GREAT move!!! I'm very happy about it, and I hope it sends a message globally that imposing untested exposure to radiation is not acceptable to the entire traveling population.
