Science - corruption by industry

Many independent scientists are concerned at how much influence industry has over regulators and some scientists involved in this area. Just as with tobacco, asbestos and some chemicals, some parts of industry operating with environmental pollutants want to use their wealth to hide independent science and maximize their profits.

How industry stalls research by false "Replication" studies

One common way which industry has used to slow study into harmful health effects of EM exposure is to pretend to conduct "replication" studies of a newly discovered effect, but to change to conditions slightly so as to find no effect. Although such a study is clearly not a true replication study, industry and some government regulators have tried to use such negative effects to justify questioning the original positive effects.

In science, a positive finding always has priority. A negative effect is never conclusive and can never over-ride a single positive study, if the positive study is reliable. Even hundreds of negative studies cannot outweigh a single positive study if the single positive study is reliable.
