The INTERPHONE study is an insult to science.
I had so many questions when I read the INTERPHONE study.
What are the authors’ affiliations (are they biased)?
Who funds the funding agencies (are they baised)?
How can a $25 million study conclude that a cancer increase of 40% is a methodological error (intentional misunderstanding)?
I could not find information about the authors.
The funding agencies appeared to be government bodies, but it was impossible to figure out where the study money really came from (in my limited search time).
This study looked fishy as hell.
So I researched other INTERPHONE articles.
Dr. Havas is one of many non-industry-funded scientists who point out how infuriating the INTERPHONE study is.
Which, in my words, is this:
When you find a 40% increase in brain tumors, it’s somewhere between stupid and criminal to dismiss those findings as “probably methodology errors.”
Every methodology error that the authors made reduced the possibility they’d find a link between mobile phone use and brain tumors.
