Welcome to “The Fun Police”. This blog  and website grew out of the OEHScience  academic 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
