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 as well 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 that may lead to health problems. This simply is not true.
Overall, some of the information presented on this website is medically sound and backed by evidence, however much of it is not rooted in science. Therefore, we rate ACN a Quackery Level Pseudoscience website. (8/22/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 11/6/2019)
