A brave doctor; and some international info

The UK's Daily Mail reports on a doctor who was refused boarding when he refused to be scanned for health reasons. Apparently,
It is mandatory for passengers to go through the full body scanners at Manchester, Gatwick and Heathrow airports, and staff there have been told that anyone who refuses should not be allowed to board.
And, there is also this information about Italy:
The Italian government had planned to install full body scanners at all airports and train stations but removed them from airports, calling them ‘slow and ineffective’.
