A Pahang doctor Datuk Looi Hoong Wah has rubbished concerted “lies” spread by the opposition among local residents on radioactive concerns from the recently completed RM2.5 billion Lynas rare earth plant near Kuantan, saying that the anti-Lynas campaign was purely politically motivated to win votes in the coming general election.
Chan Chee Khoon, ScD (Epidemiology) from the Centre for Poplation Health, Department Social and Preventive Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya on March 27 2011 took exception to grape-grower Looi’s views. The SUN surprisingly did not publish his response to Looi, but the Malaysian Insider did HERE.
Earlier, on 26 December 2001 in a blog posting HERE, I told the same Dr Looi to stick to growing grapes!
BERNAMA, probably adept at doctoring photos have little time to read MI or blogs and thought their latest offering, quoting Looi HERE, as a scoop for BN. Good try yah, but a bit late.
