An excellent article titled: "Do cellphones cause cancer?" ran recently in the 
NYTimes. See:


It reviews the limitations of epidemiology, and explores the question: "How do 
we know that anything causes cancer?". It's a rather long [9 page] article 
written by an Asst. Professor of Medicine in the Dept. of Radiation Oncology at 
Columbia. It contains a lot of useful summary technical information applicable 
to considering any risk factor.

Many will find this review interesting and might want to access the above link.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Leukemias and Chernobyl + European Journal...

I had the same question - why were all these other countries excluded? In 
addition - Jan-March + June 1986 could have been included in the data - it would 
have been easy to include these months so why was that not done?

The paper is free to download from the Internet. An interesting feature seems to 
be that you have to pay (quite much) to get your paper published.

While we look at this leukemia and Chernobyl paper CB could perhaps explain the 
status of "European Journal of Biology and Bioelectromagnetics".

My personal initiative only,

BTW, where are all the stats for the other EU countries??? BeNeLux, England, 
France, Ireland, Italy...
