"Calcium Channel Blockers May Raise [breast] Cancer Risk
Washington Post, 16 October 97, A8.
A study conducted by Annette Fitzpatrick of the University
of Washington in Seattle, Janet Daling of the Fred
Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, and others
suggests that women 65 and older who took calcium channel
blockers may be twice as likely to develop breast cancer.
The study appears in the Oct. 15 issue of _Cancer_ [which
the OPPT Library does not receive].
"Scientists Want to Keep Academy Process Intact [Science
Briefs]." USA Today, 14 October 97, 4D.
Eighty four scientists are asking the Supreme Court to
reverse the ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals that
National Academy of Sciences (NAS) committee deliberations
fall under the Federal Advisory Committee Act and must be
open to the public. The academy and the scientists contend
that the law does not apply to the NAS because it was
established by a congressional charter in 1863 and is not
part of the government.
