Groucho Marx certainly got it right with that quote!  Especially when it comes to nutrition and health and all the different diets, supplements, and unusual approaches to healing our bodies.  We need to always challenge our assumptions and be willing to examine new perspectives, yet base our decisions on good science coupled with common sense.

Not an easy task when we have instant access to so much information and ideas via the Internet!
