ARPANSA Report: No epiphany, just déjà vu, all over again
Posted on April 14, 2014
From time to time are published new reports, reviewing scientific evidence on possible health risks of cell phone and cell-phone-like radiation. Reading them, I do not experience epiphany feeling but, often, I experience déjà vu feeling. I often have the feeling that the authors of new reports use extensively texts and opinions of earlier reports. It means that instead of duly reviewing also older original studies they rely on the opinions of others.
This is not a good development. Reading older original studies and evaluating them in the context of new original studies, it may together bring this very welcome feeling of epiphany. Instead, authors of new review reports bring us, readers, often the feeling of déjà vu.
The just published ARPANSA report is no exception. No epiphany, just déjà vu.
In conclusion, ARPANSA got what it ordered. By asking ICNIRP experts to prepare review of the science they got series of copy/paste opinions from ICNIRP, SCENIHR and AGNIR.
