    1395: IARC Drops Anders Ahlbom from RF Cancer Panel!

    From Louis Slesin, Microwave News:

    The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has removed
    Anders Ahlbom of the Karolinska Institute from its panel of experts
    which is set to evaluate the cancer risks posed by mobile phones.
    The committee will meet in Lyon, France, for a week beginning this
    coming Tuesday, May 24. In an e-mail sent out earlier today, Ahlbom
    wrote, “IARC has excluded me from the RF Working Group because
    of ‘possible perception of conflict of interest’.”

    IARC moved quickly after learning that Ahlbom is a director of his
    brother’s consulting firm, Gunnar Ahlbom AB. The company, which
    is based in Brussels, was established to help clients on telecom issues,
    with an emphasis on environmental and energy regulations.
