Kansas University's School of Medicine did the study on Wescoe Hall that found no link to brain tumors. This was no independent study. Is there any plan for an outside independent study?

According to a statement from KU: "No, it is not necessary. Dr. John Neuberger, a leading environmental epidemiologist with a principal interest in cancer, conducted the study. He has served as a safety and occupational health reviewer for the National Institutes of Health. He has conducted epidemiological studies involving indoor air quality issues and cancer clusters, including radon and lung cancer, brain cancer and cancer incidence and mortality in areas near commercial hazardous waste burners. "Environmental air quality testing was conducted by an outside firm, Stewart Industrial Hygiene and Safety Inc. of Kansas City, Mo. Albert Stewart is a certified industrial hygienist and hazard control manager."
