Analysis / Bias
In review, the Association for Comprehensive Neurotherapy is a natural health website that promotes pseudoscience. For example, they offer the unsupported claim that vaccinations are a cause for Autism. ACN also routinely publishes anti-GMO propaganda and many miracle cures that are not endorsed by the consensus of the medical community. Lastly, this source publishes misleading information, such as Wi-Fi causing too much radiation exposure, leading to health problems. This simply is not true.
