This post is updated in the end with a translation of an answer on another blogg.
The Swedish organisation VOF is, just like Simon Singh and Richard Dawkins, standing on the barricades fighting for true science and against pseudoscience.
VOF have two prices (Swedish link) the give to a person or organisation that have done something for or against science.
The price for best science educator 2011 was Hjärnkontoret, a scientific TV-program for children! (A good one, I've seen it)
The price for largest scientific confuser was given to the politicians in Mora (where the famous Vasaloppet ends). They got this well deserved price after ordering the cell-phone antenna in Mora to be adjusted so that a house where a person who says he has electromagnetic hypersensitivity lives. Large areas of the town might be in cell-phone shadow efter that. The politicians used, according to VOF "unscientific methods" to understand the problem. According to nyheter24 they used google!!! Wonder if they googled to my link above, to Wikipedia. There you might read on "scientific evidence" that there are big doubts that it even exists, and wikipedia gives good links to the reports that show why they write like that!
Well some people actually believe in this. I happen to be a member of VOF on facebook. There a woman is trying to show the sceptics that they are wrong by giving links to the scientific pages listed on wikipedia as now done correct. She also writes on her blogg (Swedish link) that because the scientist do not use propper scientific methods you should not use the science for political decisions. Wonder if she thinks like that with all political decisions, or only those who are not going her way!
I am happy we have science, and what they are saying in this question is that they can not see any clear proof, it looks like it is a mental thing...but we need to investigate it more. Good, because we need to know the truth before we make a decision so that we do not something we have to regret. (IF there were strong indications that it could be true and not mental then it would be correct to use the "environmental laws caution rule" (Miljöbalk 1998:808, 2 kap, 3§)
The knights of science are needed all over the world to lift us up from ignorance and the will to fool money from people by pseudoscience. It is easy to do that with those who lack education.
(This woman doesn't seem to do that, and she is not trying to earn money here-She really believes in this!)

When I was searching on Google a week later on the name of my blogg I got a hit on her blogg "Mobilstrålningen en påtvingad hälsorisk".
When I read it it was like reading some kind of strange story(exept for the copy and pasted answer she put here). For my english speaking readers: Sorry for answering in Swedish on this thread. The main events in the comments were: She disagree with me, and then she showed some statistics about how high levels of cancer there are among med in different ages in Sweden now. (she had very high numbers) She had read the statistics wrong, and thought that the percentage of men in a group in a certain age was the percentage of cancer. I told her in a humble way that, and after that the discussion ended.
Now to her answer on her blogg:
There she writes that I hide under a pseudoname (this is my real name, and when I posted this on facebook for her to read I used my own private facebook with all informations), pseudoface (do not know what she means here, I had a picture of my own face by then, not this relic from a church in Parinacota, Northen Chile) and that I write pseudoscience.
Then she says that because all journalists listen to VoF:s pseudoscience the great papers in Sweden have lost readers (she mentions the papers with good reputation) because "they are impregnated by a false reallity and lies". Then she says: " " "There are a look of brain washed and less intelligent over the most active and the board in VoF" (My guess is that she means that I am one of them, but I am not a member.)
Then it was just some more, but this tells very much what kind of person she is when she finds someone who do not agree with her.
My reply: I feel pity for a person who acts like this, so I let her be. Hopefully she'll find pece in her heart sometime, and not keep this anger within, because that is not good.
We have an expression in Sweden: "Empty barrels sounds more than full ones"...
Update2: For viewers coming from Solvieg Silverins page- When she wrote about me and wrote "pseudoface" I had a picture of myselfs here, and I was open with who I am. After that crazy talking, and in my view threatening I descided to change my picture to the relique from Parinacota... to protect my children from eventual crazy people.
