Amazon censors

What disappointed you about Scientific American, June 2016?

The articles have been censored ...
for example this article was left out.
."Major Cell Phone Radiation Study Reignites Cancer Questions"
"Exposure to radio-frequency radiation linked to tumor formation in rats"
.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I guess I won't subscribe to any magazines ... from audible... or amazon.

Which scene was your favorite?

The favorites were left out of the audio version.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger at Amazon's censoring out important information..

Of course.. maybe there's more to the story.. and it isn't Amazon .. I don't know..

Any additional comments?

Scientific American's reputation as an interesting magazine is tarnished by censoring... I was beginning to think they were really boring. Neither May 2016 nor June 2016 had these articles in the audible's Scientific American subscription :
"Major Cell Phone Radiation Study Reignites Cancer Questions"
""Exposure to radio-frequency radiation linked to tumor formation in rats"
