Subject: Cell phones and DNA Damage

I don’t know how this relates to cancer fears and other concerns but cellular phones seem to attract other agendas.

The full article requires membership in the AAAS.

SCIENTIFIC MISCONDUCT:

The only two peer-reviewed scientific papers showing that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from cell phones can cause DNA breakage are at the center of a misconduct controversy at the Medical University of Vienna (MUV). Critics had argued that the data looked too good to be real, and in May a university investigation agreed, concluding that data in both studies had been fabricated and that the papers should be retracted.
