CHEMICAL STUDY WITHDRAWN

The World

Just over a year ago, a research team at Tulane University in new Orleans published some startling results.

Then last month Professor McLachlin withdrew the study, saying he could not replicate the results. Steve talks with Living on Earth’s Dan Grossman about what happened.
