His message was followed by rebuttals from three panelists: Dr. Bernard Leikind, a plasma physicist and senior editor of Skeptic magazine; Dr. Jitendra Mohanty, one of India’s most distinguished Hindu philosophers and professor at Emory University; and William Lane Craig, a well-known Christian philosopher and apologist.

Physicist Bernard Leikind ate a light bulb for an earlier generation of Skeptic readers - Vol. 3 No.3, 1995. He turned off the power, unscrewed the bulb, smashed it with a hammer, and only ate the glass. He strongly advises readers not to eat their cell phones even if they have turned them off, smashed them, and canceled their contracts.

I feel that Bernard Leikind is being somewhat disingenuous. He has given his opinion, based by 'facts' to accommodate his results,

Second, mr Leikind, doesn't seem to have any real facts to back up his claims. Third, when somebody disagrees with him he strikes back at them with some vitriol,not unlike a very unprofessional person.

I teach Astronomy & Physics and I'd give Leikind an 'F' for this article:
1) How can he assert properties of *unknown* mechanisms? There may be second and third order effects (and/or combinatorial effects). At best he can say that the mechanisms that he considers cannot cause cancer.

I would not allow Mr. Leikind within a couple of miles of any piece of research that was serious in intent.

Maybe this is not the question on the minds of most skeptics, but it was on the mind of Skeptic Board member, Dr. Bernard J. Leikind, when he recently found powerful evidence that top round steak is not only conscious and aware, it is confident enough to prevent burns from a bed of hot coals. Dr. Leikind, infamous for his bizarre adventures as an investigator of firewalkers, visited Tolly Burkan, firewalking guru, to test scientifically the proposition that a firewalker protects himself by establishing the proper mental state.
...
Dr. Leikind gives us this report of how he spent his summer vacation. I know it is not the way the average physicist spends his summer vacation, but when a television series featuring explorations of mysterious forces contacted me about firewalking, I thought I would come up with something completely different in the realm of scientific experimentation.

Ever since the publication of physicist Dr. Bernard Leikind's article in Skeptic (see eSkeptic for June 9, 2010) and my subsequent column in Scientific American in which I cited Leikind's arguments (both of which were skeptical of claims that cell phone use causes brain cancer), we have been inundated with letters disputing our skepticism. The letters come in a variety of flavors, so what follows are Dr. Leikind's responses to the critics that he identifies by their email names. My own response to critics will appear in the next issue of Scientific American, so in the meantime I defer to Dr. Leikind's responses below, as well as to the SkepDoc Harriet Hall, M.D. along with oncologist Dr. David Gorski, both of whom blog at ScienceBasedMedicine.org, which covers the ongoing controversy over cell phones and cancer.
