The British tabloid newspaper the Daily Mail has come under fire after failing to print a story on cancer. The newspaper, which is known for its reports on cutting edge surveys and studies (as well as its policies on immigration), went to press without a single mention of the latest plausible research into the links between mobile phone radiation and brain cancer. This was the first time in its entire print run that the Mail has neglected to include such an article, but the issue for many is that for once the study seems plausible.
From apples to zebras (via ice cream and watching videos of monkeys riding in various directions on the back of pigs), the Daily Mail has left no stone unturned in its attempts to scare the general public into believing that anything they do, eat or say can cause cancer. That was until today, when the editors of the paper allowed an edition to go to press without the word cancer being inserted subliminally into an advert for hair resoration treatment. The issue is even more surprising, considering the fact that every publication imaginable (99.99 percent of which have been blamed for causing the disease), covered the story with a four page spread.
The latest research, which suggests that there is a link between radiation emmited by mobile telephones and a form of brain cancer, has been widely applauded by experts, but it seems that this was not enough to warrant an article.
