However, the more I reflected on the expression the more I realized this is really a statement about the courage it takes to change the way we think or behave when a better alternative has been presented to us.

I trust the following examples will make this point clear for you.

Do you know that since 1958 it has been known that supplemental chromium (a mineral) will prevent and treat diabetes as...
