Welcome to “The Fun Police”. This blog and website grew out of the OEHScienceacademic blog I have been running for the past four years. The articles on here grow out of my daily academic work in epidemiology, exposure assessment and public health; just with a bit of a spin. As such, you fill find this website to be completely biased, unrepresentative of any topic or academic discipline, and basically just a reflection of my interests. I hope you enjoy it nonetheless, and I welcome any feedback..... Frank

The paper is entitled “Is there Evidence of Adverse Health Effects Near US Nuclear Installations? Infant Mortality in Coastal Communities near The Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Station in California, 1989-2012”. That is quite a mouth full, but in summary the study looks at whether there is a correlation between living on a coastal side close to the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Station and the number of children dying in that area.
20/10 Book Review
Intellectuals and Society
This is probably the worst book I have read/listened to in quite a while. And to be honest, I only have myself to blame for that. I bought it solely on the title, assuming this would be an interesting discussion of intellectuals/experts/academics etcetera in contemporary society and how they influence debate and directions of public opinion and policy. I had no idea who Thomas Sowell was, and again, the only one to blame for that is me.
