Oz Minerals AGM: MAPW media release slams junk science

An MAPW media release issued on the day of the Oz Minerals Annual General Meeting slams uranium miner Toro Energy over junk science, which could put workers at increased risk. Toro Energy is 40% owned by Oz Minerals. Toro plans to mine uranium at Wiluna in WA. The company has paid for at least three speaking tours by controversial Canadian scientist Doug Boreham, who argues low level radiation is beneficial to health. MAPW Vice-President Dr Margaret Beavis is attending the meeting and says these views are entirely contrary to accepted evidence.
