Recent US newspapers stories say that the fellow who provided the
research of a link between magnetic fields and cellular changes faked
his data and was recently fired because of it. Seems no one else could
reproduce his results and they found out he threw out the data that
didn't prove his point.  or so the newspapers said...

I would be interested to know if the duties of the flight engineer put
him into more intimate contact with "hydrocarbons and asbestos dust".
There is a particular brain tumor/cancer related to this type of
exposure. It is showing up in garage mechanics and shipyard workers who
were in contact with hydrocarbons and asbesdos dust from brake materials
and from boiler insulation.
