(WASHINGTON, Aug. 16) — A closed-door Harvard University panel said yesterday that professor Chester Douglass "did not intentionally omit, misrepresent or suppress research results" of a fluoride bone cancer study. But Environmental Working Group (EWG), whose questions triggered the investigation, said the panel's brief statement sidestepped the question of whether Douglass did in fact omit, misrepresent, or suppress critical data that show a strong link between bone cancer in adolescent boys and fluoride in tap water.

Dear Dr. Paustenbach: We were stunned to read in The Scientist your rationale for hiding the funding source of the chromium-6 article under the names of JianDong Zhang and ShuKun Li in the April 1997 Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health (JOEM). Essentially your defense is, "Everybody does it."

EWG is a non-profit public health watchdog organization. We are writing to alert you that a current Society of Toxicology (SOT) member, Dr. Dennis Paustenbach, has committed a serious violation of the Society's Code of Ethics, and to strongly urge the Society to censure Dr. Paustenbach or take other decisive and appropriate disciplinary action. The Society must make clear that it will not tolerate unethical activity by its members, or risk seriously damaging its credibility.
