The recent Pew survey on the status of science in the US public included two findings: the public is interested in the latest news about health issues, but it doesn’t necessarily feel the press does a good job. Last Friday produced a clear indication of why. Multiple news sources credulously repeated health “facts” that were essentially made up. The reason? Someone claiming to suffer from a condition that doesn’t appear to exist is releasing an album named after the apparently nonexistent condition, and wanted to raise its profile. In short, the news reports provided false health information because the reporters fell for a PR stunt.
…the sensitives claim to have specific issues—WiFi, but not cellular phone signals and vice versa—implying that whatever biological mechanism is at work would also have to be extremely selective about neighboring frequencies.
