In addition to industry funding involvement in the Interphone, several authors participating in the Interphone
received additional funding from their national mobile phone companies ref: Schoemaker 2005; Lahkola 2005; Schuz 2006; Hours 2007; Vriheid 2009 or by other private comapnies: Christensen et al 2005; Johansen 2001; Schuz 2006. These funds are not written in the Interphone protocol.
Interphone and other studies: Muscat - two studies industry funded, Lakhola 2005,Schoemaker 2005; Christensen 2005; Lonn 2005; Christensen 2004; Lonn 2004; Hepworth 2006; Lakhola 2007; Sadetzki 2008; Lakhola 2008; Morgan (Motorola) 2000; Johansen 2001  industry funded-
all these negative studies do not make declaration on conflict of interest
Three: Schuz 2006; Lonn 2006; Schlehofer 2007; state "conflict of interest - non declared".   (it is not clear if it's coming from the editor or authors); and Takebayashi 2006 (Japan); Klaeboe 2007 (Norway); Hours 2007 (France); Takebayashi 2008 - declare: "conflict of interest: none"
On Ahlbom's meta analysis: "clearly lacking cases with >=10 year latency time, and selective data of Hardell studies- only ever/never use (>5 year latency) but not those with 10 years since first use.
