Defamation: How Teams in Brown and Georgetown Universities, and beyond, are Trying, under the Mask of an “Undergradutate Student", to Silent Critics
Background of the Defamation Thriller. Part One: a so-called “Undergradutate Student” (Matthew GELFAND) from Brown and Georgetown Universities (USA) has, recently, openly defamated Dr Kamal T.C. in the columns of a biomedical journal.
While, in the past, independent researchers had professionnally accepted to address critiques, the interest of this "undergraduate student" was obviously elsewhere. Anyway, and as usual, Kamal stoically responded to the accusations and that's all there were going to be to it if this spook had not contacted him later to request his "collaboration" (help a cop do his libellous job against you...) in order to proceed with more defamation as he would be drafting a “paper” on hookah smoking “for his class”.
Dr Kamal T. C. first remembered that Dr C.L., a famous scientist (his full name will be given later if necessary) who actively participated in the preparation of the two flawed and erroneous WHO (World Health Organization) reports (first and second), is also affiliated with Georgetown University…
Then, he saw how this “undergraduate student” childlishly pretended "to look at the merits" of Kamal's "scientific claims"(!) that he woud have investigated (!). At the same time, he was -hold your breath !- (and as this happened in the second erroneous WHO report) citing Wikipedia pages (yes, Wikipedia !) as reliable scientific sources... Above all, he was strangely insisting on citing Dr Kamal T. C.’s first (and only that one) public comment (in English) on a famous study full of serious errors. Dr Kamal T. C. was consequently amazed because he has actually published numerous other peer-reviewed studies and comments on officially peer-reviewed scientific studies.
He then understood that, unlike all his other comments in biomedical journals, the short critique he published in Tobacco Control had been recently under attack for a so-called non-declared “conflict of interest” in relation to his participation in the No-CO [Carbon Monoxide] World Hookah Project
In fact, none of all the numerous comments published by Dr Kamal T. C. had any conflict of interest, simply because, as he said: “I have been busy for a full year working on the design of the new No-CO hookah prototype”. The only online comment in Tobacco Control, on which a debate was raised by his opponents, needed a clarification. It eventually shows that there was NO conflict of interest, even for this fist E-Letter. Read FULL STORY HERE
As a conclusion, this is a blatant and failed operation carried on by official incompetent scientists, affiliated with “well-regarded institutions” using the name of a snotty "undergraduate student". If necessary, his full names and the whole correspondence will be published here.
These people, probably from Brown and Georgetown Universities (and beyond) are trying to silence and stain the reputation of one of the very few independent researchers (vis a vis the Pharmaceutical Industry and the Tobacco Industry) who work only with their own brain and dare criticise official expertises and the so-called given-as-granted “good science”. These few researchers call a cat a cat and a junk study a junk study.
