I imagine he would make similar comments about the Ramazzini study, and in my opinion he is quite right.
Ah, but although we might agree with Kostoff's opinion it's likely to be for a different reason. More studies designed and analyzed along the lines of the Ramazzini report would simply confuse the public more than it is already. The way to get greater scientific insight into the matter is to come to grips with the limitations of this study and address other questions related to human/animal behavior and performance. Don't get me wrong, I love these guys after having worked with them for over 20 yrs. in NASA-Ames' Life Sciences Directorate. But, as in this case, they get the lion's share of the funding and provide very limited perspective about the bandwidth of (potential) problems.
