ABSTRACT
The article features some of the topics for this month's journal. A commentary from "Clapp et al" that voices out the concern that the integrity of public health science in the US is being eroded by political and economic interests. There is a register based survey investigating the risk of multiple sclerosis in female nurse anesthetists. There is also an account of the French National Mesothelioma Surveillance Programme by Goldberg et al. A report of the US Congress found numerous examples of how the current administration has manipulated scientific research and traditional scientific review procedures.
