Abstract

A comment from Bada (1) attempts to flag multiple issues with our recent study (2). We appreciate the opportunity to respond, as Bada raises some interesting points, but many of his comments appear to overinterpret our results in a manner well beyond the scope of our original study. We believe Bada’s comments (1) can be broadly grouped into two key points for discussion: 1) the calculation used to yield the racemization timeline and 2) issues with our final conclusion.
