A Report on Non-Ionizing Radiation

Ahlbom Resigns from Swedish Radiation Post

June 10, 2011

Anders Ahlbom has resigned as the chairman of the Swedish Radiation Protection Authority’s expert group on EMFs and RF radiation.

The group issues an annual review of new research. Ahlbom had served as the chairman ever since the group was established close to a decade ago.

Now that he has stepped down, the Authority has closed its investigation into whether Ahlbom's connection to his brother's telecom consulting firm might have constituted a conflict with his advisory role at the Authority. As is now widely known, that potential conflict prompted IARC to remove him from its RF working group.

No word yet as to who will replace Ahlbom.
