Below is a collection of references to everything you might want to know about Dr. R. K. Chandra, a Canadian researcher whose 1989 paper, Influence of maternal diet during lactation and use of formula feeds on development of atopic eczema in high risk infants, was retracted by the BMJ yesterday. It was originally published by the British Medical Journal on July 22, 1989. It appears that this paper and many others written by Dr. Chandra are simply fabrications – reports on studies that were never done at all. And some had co-authors who were unaware that the trials had never even taken place.
