From Louis Slesin, Microwave News:
“Cell Phones Affect Brain Activity.” That headline has
appeared all over the world since Nora Volkow published
a PET scan of a brain lit up by a cell phone last month.
Her colorful graphics, published in the high impact Journal
of the American Medical Association (JAMA), guaranteed
Volkow a large and attentive audience.
But all the hoopla shouldn’t obscure the fact that
for more than a decade many others, notably
Peter Achermann’s group at the University of
Zurich, have shown similar types of radiation-induced
changes in the brain as well as much more.
Indeed, in December 2002, exactly the same headline ran
in Tages Anzeiger, a widely read Swiss newspaper.
