Quotes

"We've received almost 100 complaints asking us to help remove cellular towers from their communities" said Mr Prawit
According to Mouritsen, "…these findings should make us think -- both about the survival of migratory birds as well as about the potential effects for human beings, which have yet to be investigated."
...issue sunglasses with protection from UV-A light and, in the long-term, improvements to the design of cockpit windscreens," McAuslan added. "We will work with airlines and regulators to further investigate the potential dangers of increased exposure to sunlight in the cockpit and agree simple and practical measures to protect pilots."
"This research is a step towards understanding and tackling the increase in skin cancer risk for pilots" says Rob Hunter, head of flight safety at the BritishBritish Airline Pilots Association in London (BALPA)...
