A critical examination of recent elastic electron scattering reports on H-containing samples is carried out. We show that all results are consistent with the conclusion that no anomaly exists in the measured e -H scattering intensities as compared to e -scattering from other light atoms such as D or C. The scattering results are, in fact, in agreement with the classical Rutherford formula and there is no need to invoke short-lived quantum entanglement of the protons to explain the existing data. The neutron-proton scattering intensities on H-containing samples were also examined and found to agree with standard cross sections. Also no theoretical evidence was found supporting the existence of the reported anomalies.
