To me, here is what that question sounds like, "I've just heard green vegetables are bad for you. But that doesn't translate into "Don't eat green vegetables." The same is true for bonds. There are economic circumstances where certain types of bond funds may lose value for some people. If you try to sell your bond at this point in time, you will receive less than you paid for it, because its coupon rate is lower than the going rate.
