Japan rolls out radiation-proof undies in Fukushima's wake

Not just your average board shorts, the new product line from Yamamoto Corporation is made with a very particular swimmer in mind: Fukushima clean-up crews. The clothing is being called "radiation shield wear," and Yamamoto says it differs from traditional radiation protective clothing. The first layer of protection is a pair of lead-lined underwear that keeps harmful gamma rays away from your abdomen and lower spine, where it could do irreparable harm. Over these uncomfortable-looking crotch guards you then sling on a beta ray-shielding drysuit. Instead of being lined with lead, the drysuit is instead designed to stop radioactive materials from sticking to your person.
