Analysis / Bias
Altermed Zentrum publishes a mixture of republished content and original. Most articles focus on alternative health and frequently promote pseudoscience such as this Studies show: Garlic helps against 14 types of cancer and 13 types of infections. Why don’t doctors recommend this? The primary source for this story is GreenMedInfo, which frequently promotes misleading pseudoscientific information. Doctors don’t recommend garlic because there is little supportive evidence to support its value in protecting against cancer.
The website frequently promotes anti-vaccination propaganda such as this Vaccinating: 27 Crushing Facts About The Pharmaceutical Industry And Its Vaccines !! They rely on poor sources such as Children’s Health Defense, which routinely fails fact checks when promoting vaccine misinformation.
Altermed Zentrum also publishes debunked information regarding the dangers of 5G, such as this 5G – Urgent warning of total radiation from new cellular network! Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, they have repeatedly reported false and misleading information. In general, they promote pseudoscientific information.
