    The Brundtland/Repacholi controversy continues : Dariusz Leszczynski comments

    In Dariusz’s latest column he explores the limitations of EHS research studies to date and the role of the nocebo effect and how this has been one of the arguments dismissing the existence of causal link between EHS and EMF. An interesting commentary and well worth the read – whether you agree or not with the points raised.


    From Dariusz Leszczynski:
