         The bovik/basra link below is to another of bovik/Salsman's 
worthless graphs.  This one has its "y' axis labeled with increments, 
however there is no explanation of what the increments are.  To reiterate, 
the graph is worthless.

         My "scholarship" tells me the 95% confidence interval is 
irrelevant and immaterial.  The point under consideration is whether or not 
Kang's claim of a 2.2 greater risk of birth defects has any merit.  Has 
that claim passed peer review, and has it been published?  If it has, let's 
have a citation to the journal wherein it was published.
