Abstract : Recently, some attempts have been made to describe what is termed the N effect in various deuteron reactions, using field theoretical (perturbation theory) methods. Previously, the N peaks were introduced in a phenomenological way -- i.e., as final state interactions. It is pointed out, in a qualitative way that a possible fallacy exists in the new approach (and in the phenomenological methods as well), and an alternative mechanism for producing the N effect is suggested.
