    1366: IARC Welcomes Industry to RF ­Cancer Review

    From Louis Slesin, Microwave News:

    When Mike Repacholi led the World Health
    Organization’s (WHO) EMF project, he took industry
    money and gave its people a seat at the table
    –allowing electric utilities and mobile phone
    companies to help set the agenda.

    [Don’s comment, see: http://www.emfacts.com/papers/who_conflict.pdf ]

    Now, Christopher Wild, the head of the International
    Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a branch of
    the WHO, is welcoming industry representatives to
    the most important meeting on RF health risks in
    a generation.

    At the end of May, an expert group will decide whether
    cell phone radiation can or may lead to cancer. The CTIA, the
    MMF and the GSM Association will all be there.
