The “Nicotine and Tobacco Research” Journal Endorses a Scientific Error as Big and Carcinogenic as a Yemeni Narghile Bowl !


In a paper published in the Nicotine and Tobacco Research journal, the organ of the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco , Kenneth WARD, Thomas EISSENBERG (US-Syrian Center for Tobacco Studies), Jennifer N GRAY JN, Vidya SRINIVAS, Nancy WILSON, and Wasim MAZIAK (idem), make a study on hookah smoking and cancer say “black” when it actually says “white”.

This very serious error has remained uncommented as most of the researchers in this field are simply scared for possible retaliation if they would critique the “Waterpipe”™ Group’s publications (idem) sold to the broad public and to the World Health Organization, and for 6 years now, as “good” (sic), “peer-reviewed”(sic) science on which “there is not debate” (sic).

KC , who doesn’t fear this terror and blackmail based on pseudo-science, sent a very short (143 word), polite and right-to-the-point Letter to the Editor of the above journal (Dec. 15, 2005) just “to see what happens”:

To the Editor of Nicotine and Tobacco Research:

I wish to draw your attention to a serious error to be found in a study recently published in your journal [1]. Its authors wrote that “Waterpipe use likely increases the risk of [lung cancer]” and one of the cited references to support such a statement is Rakower and Fatal’ historical study.

This is not acceptable as the latter are this way credited with exactly the opposite of what they reported about narghile and lung cancer [2]. The two famous scientists were actually surprised by the low mortality rates among Yemenite Jews in Israel who were narghile smokers. They found that: “there [was] an eightfold difference between the lowest lung cancer mortality rate for the immigrants from Yemen [a majority of them being narghile smokers] and the highest for the immigrants from Europe [50% were smokers and most of them were cigarette users].”

[1] Ward KD, Eissenberg T, Gray JN, Srinivas V, Wilson N, Maziak W. Characteristics of U.S. waterpipe users: A preliminary report. Nicotine Tob Res. 2007 Dec;9(12):1339-46.

[2] Rakower J, Fatal B. Study of Narghile Smoking in Relation to Cancer of the Lung. Br J Cancer 1962 (Mar);16:1-6.

One month later, he followed up on his Letter. The Editor, Dr David BALFOUR, said his letter was rejected, evading any scientific reason for his decision. Instead, he referred to other matters with absolutely no relation with the above error (copy of the correspondence HERE).

In other words, the Editor of a journal boasting of being “peer-reviewed” and reaching an “impact factor” of “2.299”, considers that this huge error doesn’t need to be corrected. The obvious reason is that whom revealed it is not citable… Visitor, whomever you are, scientist or not, please access their “study” and check by yourself

Unfortunately, facts, particularly when they are scientific, are stubborn things, as a famous revolutionary said. Read our friend’s reply in which he emphasizes that the journal’s decision:

“breaches the basic editorial ethics of most biomedical journals of the world, particularly the principles established by COPE and ICMJE [1][2] and I gather that your very journal is supposed to adhere to the latter[3].

[1] COPE, the Committee on Publication Ethics, is “a code of conduct for editors of biomedical journals”, “a suggested code of conduct for editors to guide them towards being fair to authors, researchers, and readers”: http://www.publicationethics.org.uk/guidelines/code

[2] ICMJE. Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals: Writing and Editing for Biomedical Publication. Updated Oct. 2007:
http://www.icmje.org/index.html#correct

[3] Nicotine and Tobacco Research proclaimed adherence to ICMJE: http://www.ntrjournal.org/interest.html

CONCLUSION OF THIS NEW SCIENTIFIC SCANDAL:
This is a good example of what Omerta (the Law of Silence in the Mafia) is in the “Tobacco Control” biomedical field. We conclude that when an error of this size is repeated again and again, inflating the so-called “impact factors” (synonym in this field: “parroting factor”), and spreading like cancer (Read Shisha Confusion), it reaches the status of a LIE, that of an officially endorsed LIE.

READ ALSO about the numerous other errors in that “study”:

Study on US “Waterpipe”™ Users by US-Syrian Center: from Serious Errors to ““Waterpipe”” Fixation, Fallacies, Fallacism and Religious Obsession, etc.

Note: the Nicotine and Tobacco Research journal has also published in the past other “studies” of the same “quality”. No surprise, in these conditions, that a WHO report also states that SNUS (Swedish smokeless tobacco) is deadly. These people believe they are not accountable for their repeated attacks on public health.

The quit smoking medicine chantix is undoubtedly the right medication to relieve yourself from the shackles of nicotine addiction, but this drug meant for triggering off smoking cessation would yield beneficial results for you only when you administer it in accordance with the suggestions of the doctor. Altogether, there are certain other precautionary measures that you need to adhere to while using chantix and all these are detailed elaborately at the website http://www.chantixmagic.com.
