The results of a new study of solar flare H and He isotopes imply that earlier observations have significantly overestimated the abundances of ^2H, ^3H, and ^3He in large solar flares. We find no evidence that solar flare nuclei have suffered any significant amount of fragmentation before escaping from the Sun.
