While I agree that as you stated below in your first post, that "Suggest
that colleagues tell the Professor Chihiro Ichihara from Aichi Medical
University that measuring radioactivity in teeth is very long running scam
and he has bought into it², it is entirely a different matter to suggest by
your 2nd post that the Dean of this School of Medicine and Medical Review
Board members contacted regarding the Professor. I am speculating that is
the purpose of your providing the link. It is one thing to bring information
to individuals and another thing to possibly jeopardize one¹s affiliation
with an organization as well as effect impact one¹s position and employment.
While I doubt that anything would come of this, I simply don¹t agree with
Many years ago members of this list were subjected to their employers being
contacted by other list members regarding statements made and that was
really reprehensible. In this case the Professor is not a member of the list
but I would still consider contacting his employer to also be uncalled for.
If I am misinterpreting your purpose, then I apologize.
