Analysis / Bias

In review, Faith Panda is a health and homeopathic news blog that occasionally promotes pseudoscience. Many articles detail miracle cures through foods and incredible preventative properties that are not supported by science. They also have stories of miracle cures through prayer. Faith Panda spreads fear of GMO’s that is not supported by the consensus of scientists. While there are many articles that contain sound information, such as advocating for vaccinating children, there are many more that are not scientifically based.

Overall, we rate Faith Panda a Moderate Pseudoscience website for promotion of miracle cures. (D. Van Zandt 8/2/2017) Updated (12/15/2018)
