Mr Richard Evans, Head of Media Relations for the World Cancer Research Fund, complained that a comment piece had contained the implication that those responsible for a recent WCRF inquiry may have motivated by reasons not unadjacent to money.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper, which argued that the comment was not specifically directed at the WCRF, published the following clarification:

Further to our article of 8th November, the World Cancer Research Fund wishes to make clear that the members of the panel who made its cancer prevention recommendations worked on a voluntary basis, and were only paid an honorarium of Resolution,500 per year, which is standard and accepted practice in the scientific community.

Report: 76
