Si Duk Lee
— A legitimate air-pollution investigator who worked for the EPA mainly on automobile exhaust fumes. —
Si Duk Lee worked for most of his life in the USA, and for the Environmental Protection Agency. He only appears once in association with a dubious conference organised by the IAI group for the Asian WhiteCoats Program — but that was almost certainly due to the organisers inviting some legitmate Asian-American scientists to speak at the conference, in order to confer a degree of legitimacy.

If you breathe polluted air every day and at the same time are cutting your cholesterol count by using only polyunsaturated fats, you could need more vitamin E. Doctors Daniel B. Menzel of Duke University, Jeffrey N. Roehm of Battelle- Northwest in Washington, and Si Duk Lee of the Environmental Protection Agency in Cincinnati think that air pollutants speed up the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the body to form poisonous peroxides but that vitamin E protects against this oxidation, at least if you're a rat.
1978 Dec 6: Article That pollution saving converter may be deadly.Dr. Si Duk Lee, PhD, chief of the biochemistry section of the Health Effects Research Lab in the EPA's National Environmental Research Center in Cincinnati. did research on the project and found that the compounds palladium sulfate and palladium nitrate, both found in the converters, can have drastic effects in very low concentrations.
