another way of getting information about things:

if A -> B and C -> B, then sometimes learning about C-> B can give you lots of information on the A->B mechanism, especially if C and A act in similar ways.

e.g. adderall (A) might cause heart damage (B), and heartbreak (C) can also cause heart damage. But I learned that C->B is generally not permanent, helping me believe that A->B is not permanent either. Because C->B and A->B are mediated through similar mechanisms (aka catecholamine increases)
