Further Information

Simon Chapman, an associate professor at the Department of Public Health and Community Medicine at Sydney University and member of ASH, and his group, were caught while deleting information that would have exonerated passive smoke from association with disease. Judicially cited for this, Chapman nevertheless became a prominent consultant at the World Health Organization, which endorsed the very study that was previously the object of the lawsuit, showing contempt for ethics and any justice system that does not corroborate its ideology. Chapman remains a high-profile antitobacco activist as of 2008.
