Volcker Years at the Fed-II Reaganomics and Volckeronomics

Nambi and Soman have dealt with the different levels of pollution in the cities in a cavalier and unscientific manner. They state:
The negative correlations [between radiation dose and cancer incidence] obtained in Figure 1 cannot be explained away in terms of carcinogenic pollutants prevalent in the five cities; for example Bangalore and Madras are more industrialised than Pune and Nagpur, and hence the higher cancer rates in the latter cannot be explained away by the relative pollution levels. This astonishing paragraph does not even report the authors' own data accurately. The authors' Figure 1 reports cancer incidence rate for Bangalore to be considerably higher than that for Nagpur, while at the same time the authors report a considerably lower cancer mortality rate for Bangalore (see the Table). Moreover, the authors appear not to be aware that Pune is a highly industrialised city.
