    #1024: Industry consultant to investigate cancer cluster.

    From Microwave News:

    The University of California, San Diego (UCSD), campus is in an uproar over a cluster of cancer cases among those working in the university’s Literature Building. Eight women who worked there developed breast cancer between 2000 and 2006, which is significantly more than would have been expected by chance, according to an analysis by Cedric Garland, a UCSD epidemiologist.

    Now UCSD has turned to Leeka Kheifets for help. Kheifets has spent most of her professional career
    either directly or indirectly working for the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI),
    an arm of the electric utility industry.
