Dear Mike

Thank you for your mail! It causes some work for me on the internet, but
this is welcome because it is a (small) challenge to test that my brain
still works (I am 72). Furthermore it provides some good laughs for me:
Never heard about the HERO Thomas Neff who saves schoolchildren from a
horrible death from deadly uranium, could not even find him on google, his
affiliation so I dare to say that he is a "scientific nobody", which is 
confirmed by his comments in other Austrian newspapers - he is described as 
an "antinuclear activist" which seems to be a synonym for "ultimate expert", 
as is the case for "independent laboratories", which actually means that 
they are independent of any internationally accepted quality assurance, 
untrained personnel like students after one or two years of study of 
biology, psychology, genderscience etc. Not to forget their involvement in 
feminism, journalistic science etc,.etc.

So why should anyone take these "alarming news" serious? Forget it and laugh 
about them. It is a well known strategy  of the "antis to everything" to 
flood massmedia with pseudoscientific nonsense. Some more thoughts wanted? 
You should have more than enough examples in the USA yourselves!

Sorry, this is more than enough comment on such idiots.

Best regards,


I happened upon this article and thought of you immediately Franz, I assume 
Thomas Neff is your nemesis :)
