Good Science Versus Bad Science: Why Wifi Networks Don't Cause Autism

A recent paper in Child Development has caused concern by alleging a causative connection between non-ionizing radiation (W-Fi) and a host of conditions, including autism and cancer.

We also outline some hallmarks of potentially dubious science, with the hope that authors, reviews and editors might be better able to avoid suspect scientific claims.
