Data from LEP2 on hadron production in interactions at high pT exceed the predictions of QCD by about an order of magnitude. The amplitude for the process is asymptotically proportional to the sum of the squares of the charges of quarks. The data are suggestive of models where quarks have unit charges, or larger. Unequivocal tests could be made with the ILC or CLIC, but a plasma wakefield e e collider might provide the most affordable option [1].

Measurement of the Cross Section for open b-Quark Production in Two-Photon Interactions at LEP
Inclusive beauty-quark production in two-photon collisions has been measured at LEP using an integrated luminosity of 698 pb-1 collected by the ALEPH detector with sqrt(s) between 130 and 209 GeV.
Inclusive jet production in photon-photon collisions at sqrt(see) from 189 to 209 GeV

Do LEP results suggest that quarks have integer electric charges
We argue that recent results from two-photon processes at LEP are better explained by quarks possessing integer electric charges.

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
