Jen-- There is a lot of bad info out in the world, particularly about
nutritional supplements. There are a lot of different agendas out there,

want to sell and they are saying things to prove their product is the best,
or whatever. There are a lot of reasons to doubt information and it needs
to be double and triple-checked.
