Body scanners land at West Palm Beach airport

 

Palm Beach International Airport is the latest airport to receive the controversial full-body scanners. 

 

The Florida airport received their first scanner Thursday, which are intended to make air travel more secure for passengers without having to physically touch them.

 

However if you are concerned over the images being shot and of any health risk from the scanners, you can opt out and receive a full-body patdown from a TSA agent. 

 

The TSA has installed a little over 200 scanners at over 50 airports throughout the United
States, with plans to have 405 in use by the end of 2010.
