Facts and Alt-Facts: How 2 Labs Report on Potency

In this post, I am going to spare you my interpretation. I’m just going to show you two graphs (and a morphed combination of the two). My expectation is that some of the readers of this post who take a minute or two to go through the homework I’m about to suggest will then take the time to share how the actual data in the graphs supports and/or opposes the image they formed in their heads by conducting the following mind experiment: Please relax.
