Robert Barefoot’s Credentials

February 5, 2003

The document below has been retyped from a copy of the curriculum vitae that Robert R. Barefoot submitted in support of his being permitted to testify in a case that the Maryland Attorney General brought against the marketers of T-Up, a dangerous product promoted for the treatment of cancer and AIDS. The presiding Administrative Law Judge ruled that Barefoot was not qualified to provide expert testimony. Assuming that it is complete, this document indicates that Barefoot has had little (if any) training in health sciences and has conducted no studies involving human health or disease. The typographic and punctuation errors are reproduced exactly as they appear in the original, but his phone number has been removed.
