MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The TSA has issued a new rule for airport security screening.

TSA agents can now force passengers to go through body scanners, even if they want to opt out.

Before the change, passengers could choose a full body pat down instead of the body scanner.

A lot of people would choose the pat down because they were concerned about radiation, although studies have shown that going through the scanners does not negatively affect the body.

The change comes amid heightened security concerns about terror plots on commercial airlines.
