I do not think there is any evidence for muons in cold fusion.
JB: There is actually plenty of evidence along with plenty of data some of 
which was presented. You may not think the evidence is credible, but you are 
not a nuclear engineer 

➢ People who are nuclear engineers and nuclear physicists don't think so 

Some do, some don’t. George Miley for instance, who has far stronger 
credentials than most critics of Holmlid, was actually a co-author with him.

➢ The main reason I know of is that if there were lots of muons, they would 
cause harm, and there is no sign of harm.

There is not much sign of harm for airline crews who spend many hours at 
altitude where muons are present in high flux. Furthermore, Holmlid has 
suffered a health issue recently which could have been aggravated by exposure 
to muons. The jury is out on this issue.

In fact, muons are weakly interacting with light elements like carbon so health 
issues are not expected but no one knows. The Curie’s health problems, for 
instance, is a situation where they were exposed to muons, in addition to gamma 
radiation, but no one has revisited the old cases to estimate relative risks.

Actually, there are stronger arguments against muons than health issues but 
what is needed is a stronger independent replication. 

Since the so-called “Letts-Cravens effect” is similar to Holmlid’s technique 
and has been replicated by others, it is conceivable that some kind of hybrid 
experiment will emerge… sooner rather than later, it is hoped.
