Thank you for posting the Jablon et al abstract and reference. It is
easy to tire of the seeming endless studies of cell phone cancers and
NPP cancers, but these replications/repetitions surely are intrinsic
functions of well done science. It is pleasant to have the periodic
reassurances and to watch reasonable applications of science -- quite a
contrast with some of our other shenanigans. <g>
