This article has been retracted at the request of the Editor-in-Chief. An investigation into an alleged failure to disclose COI was conducted by an interdisciplinary scientific review committee convened by senior leadership at Georgia Regents University (GRU).
The committee reached the findings of a failure to properly disclose the relationship. During the course of that investigation, questions were raised about the methods and data presented in this article. The questions focused in particular on the consistency of the statistics over various study periods as well as the methods by which study sites were chosen. The investigation concluded that the science was flawed.
