IS THERE ANY ACTIVITY THAT
DOESN'T PRODUCE A BIOLOGICAL EFFECT?
Contribution to the spiked debate 'Mobile phones
and health: What are we scared of?'
What is Ian
Gibson MP on? Something that causes a biological effect, that's for
According to the former chair of the parliamentary select committee on
science and technology, in his contribution to this spiked-debate,
'there's enough indication that radiation does cause biological effects
- that was the point, without being able to say there was no effect whatsoever.
There was some biological effect, but there's no effect on people's health
Putting a laptop on your lap also produces a biological effect, as does
your granny's electric blanket. The scope for precautionary research and
warnings now becomes limitless. Come to think of it, when I have lunch
in a little while, that too will produce a biological effect and maybe
even a health one. Crikey!
Does Gibson have evidence of an activity that doesn't produce a biological
effect? If not, than what are he and his committee on about exactly?
