Concept 25: Recognizing Quackery: Becoming an Informed Consumer

  1. Why are some people more susceptible to quack claims than others?
  2. Have you had any personal ex-periences with quacks or do you know of someone who did?
  3. Are you typically skeptical of new over-hyped ad claims about fitness and health products or do you try them right away?
  4. When you read or hear about a book or article on fitness and exercise, how can you tell if it is reliable and scientifically sound?
  5. Would you favor more governmental control to prevent quackery in society or is it the consumer's responsibility to make good decisions?
