Fake News in Academia — How to Discredit a Major Discovery

“I see no basis for such statements. They followed standard operating procedures. So, if the basic NTP methodology is flawed you have to throw out all the NTP studies. The controls are handled the same way as the exposed. This sounds like some conspiracy theory.”

 Ron Melnick —  Former NTP study Director

“It is disconcerting that a few scientists are trying to dismiss this study which is considered the strongest toxicology study ever conducted on cell phone radiation and cancer.”

Joel Moskowitz — University of California School of Public Health in Berkeley

“I have read all the reviews and never found a hint that the slides were read unblinded.”

Michael Kundi — Head of the Vienna University’s Institute of Environmental Health.

Maria Feychting

Last year, the National Toxicology Program announced that cell phone radiation increased the incidence of tumors in the brain and heart of male rats. Now, Maria Feychting — a professor at the Karolinska Institute and the vice chair of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) — is casting doubt on the landmark $25 million NTP RF animal study in a talk presented at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the institute that awards the Nobel prizes. Shame on her. She is simply lying! Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_Today

The National Toxicology Program (NTP) will release the “complete results” of its $25 million project on cell phone cancer risks in the near future.

According to a statement posted on its Web site in August 2017:

“The complete results from all the rats and mice studies will be available for peer review and public comment by early 2018.”

The animals were exposed to GSM (2G) and CDMA (3G) radiation for two years before they were sacrificed and evaluated for signs of cancer.

The NTP investigators have concluded that cell phone radiation increased the incidence of tumors in the brain and heart of male rats, even at power density below the recommandations of ICNIRP.

Professor Feychting’s argument is rather simple. She alleges that the pathology analyses were not properly blinded.

The pathologists were aware which samples had come from the exposed animals and which were from the controls.

The diagnoses were therefore subject to bias and could not be trusted. The net result would be that the higher tumor rates reported by the NTP had, as the rumor put it, “no value.”

Fortunately, the editor of “Microwave News” decided to check out the rumor.

The evidence, I was told, is buried in Appendix C of the NTP’s report of its “partial findings,” issued in May 2016 (pp.21-22):

All PWG [Pathology Working Group] reviews were conducted blinded with respect to treatment group and only identified the test article as “test agent A” or “test agent B.”

Feychting and others appear to have assumed that “A” and “B” were code for the exposed and controls rats.

They were wrong.

“The PWGs were carried out on slides that were blinded as to exposure group or control,” John Bucher, the study director and the associate director of the NTP wrote in an e-mail when asked about the Feychting rumor by Microwave News.

He also confirmed that agents “A” & “B” referred to the different RF modulations.
