A long story comes to an end

The legal dispute before the Hanseatic Higher Regional Court of Bremen against Alexander Lerchl, Professor of Biology and Ethics at the private Jacobs University in Bremen, was about the final clarification of the question of whether he can prove his allegation – constantly repeated since 2008 – that the results of the REFLEX Study funded by the EU Commission from 2000 to 2004 are falsified. The finding that mobile phone radiation can damage genes in isolated human cells obviously exceeded his ability to understand. To lend credibility to his claim he accused Elisabeth Kratochvil of falsification, a technical assistant at the Medical University of Vienna (MUV) who had contributed significantly to the REFLEX results. His aim was twofold. On the one hand, he wanted to prevent the REFLEX follow-up study, which had been highly rated by the EU Commission’s experts, from also being funded. In this he was successful. On the other hand, he wanted to have the REFLEX papers withdrawn from the scientific literature. In this he failed. He could not convince the editors of the journals in which they had been published with his allegation of falsification. They noticed his intention and were not willing to be misused for the purposes of a lobbyist of the mobile phone industry, as he was already known at that time.


The smearing campaign against Swedish oncologist Dr. Hardell and the persons behind it

On October 12th 2012, the Italian Supreme Court ruled that use of mobile and cordless phones can cause brain tumor. In this landmark decision, the results from the Swedish research group led by oncologist and epidemiologist Dr Lennart Hardell at the Örebro University Hospital were important. Hardell’s group has consistently found that mobile and cordless phones increase the risk of brain tumors.
