Cutting with Occam's razor

We comment positively on the recent article "Seesaw mechanism with Occam's razor" [K. Harigaya et al. Phys. Rev. D 86, 013002 (2012).] by Harigaya, Ibe, and Yanagida. In this article, the authors are using the principle of Occam's razor in neutrino physics-a principle that should be applied more often in science in general. At the end, we also discuss the Bayesian method in statistics, in which Occam's razor is naturally built in.
