September 1991
New Scientist;9/21/91, Vol. 131 Issue 1787, p88
The article presents news briefs related to the field of scientific research as of September 21, 1991. A Norwegian researcher has proved that the notion that too much exposure to sunlight may be dangerous is based solely on the ignorance of the sine relationship among epidemiologists. The research is described in the current issue of The Journal of Irreproducible Results. Skin cancer incidence rates at different latitudes in Norway were used, and only data for women, as there is a law that women should be considered before men.
