  •  Only because WHO ignored multiple studies. (0+ / 0-)

    The only one even they considered plausible was Nasopharyngeal cancer, where the cohort studies were 2 for... and 3 against.  The most recent combined study was from 1997, and didn't include most of the recent, negative cohort studies.  Of the case control studies, only 1 of 7 found any statistically significant increase.

    They declared it carcinogenic some time ago, and have struggled against having to walk back the findings in light of negative recent studies.

    This is looking increasingly like a political decision and less like a scientific one.
