Incomplete Disclosure

JAMA Oncol. 2022;8(6):949. doi:10.1001/jamaoncol.2022.1033

In the Review titled “Radiofrequency Radiation and Cancer: A Review,”1 published online December 9, 2021, and in the March 2022 issue of JAMA Oncology, the author’s conflict of interest disclosure was incomplete.

The disclosure statement should have read as follows: “Dr Grimes reported that he has written articles on misconceptions and conspiracy theories surrounding radiofrequency radiation in scholarly and lay publications, but has not received industry funding for these articles. He reported having received payment for an appearance in an informational video for Vodafone UK countering conspiracy theories about 5G, specifically on purported links to COVID-19 and cancer, and donated these fees to Médecins Sans Frontières. He also reported receiving paid royalties for a book (with multiple editions) that addresses health disinformation and critical thinking, and receiving fees and honoraria for contributed articles, fact-checking, public talks, and media appearances.” The article has been corrected online to include this information.
