The influence of the conventional nuclear structure on the European Muon Collaboration effect is critically reviewed. The ratio of deep inelastic lepton nucleon to lepton nucleus cross sections is shown to be sensitively dependent on the proper kinematics of the Fermi motion and the careful treatment of the binding effect of nucleons in nuclei. We systematically consider the example Ca40 at -Q2=20 (GeV/c)2.
