    The Politics and Economics of Bias

    From Louis Slesin, Microwave News:

    The latest analysis of the tumor risks among cell phone users in Denmark and the accompanying editorial brings to mind the old saying: “Trust your mother, but cut the cards.”

    Be warned: Before you believe what you are told by the Danish Cancer Society or the Karolinska Institute or what you read in the British Medical Journal, check out the facts for yourself.

    As for IARC, there seems to be an internal dispute going on as to whether it should take seriously its own panel’s decision
    to designate cell phone radiation as a possible cancer agent. It’s not clear what side IARC Director Chris Wild is on.

    Read our in-depth report on the latest example of bias run amuck on cell phones and tumors:

    Best,
