It is argued that the recent claim of Kumar [Phys. Lett. A 154 (1991) 461], that assuming the protein specific modes in a deoxymyoglobin crystal to be described by a quantum mechanical overdamped oscillator can explain the sudden sharp decrease, above a characteristic temperature, of the Lamb-Mössbauer recoilles fraction of the57Fe atom in the protein crystal, is not teenable. © 1994.
