Sorry if I seem to do some nit picking, but my training in logic compels me to the following:
Bob's statement is: "CPH sufferers always respond to indocine"
Let's assume this is true, it's all over the medical literature.
John reverses this, saying (put in a nut shell): "If indocine helps your HA, it is CPH"
However, this is an invalid procedure,
the logically correct reversal of Bob's statement would be: "If indocine does not help your HA, it is not CPH"
In fact, there are some true, dyed in the wool clusterheads that get relieve from indocine, and this contradicts John's statement.
