Analysis / Bias

The Alternative Daily primarily publishes health and wellness articles from an alternative or holistic perspective. While many articles are properly sourced to credible outlets such as the CDC and peer-reviewed journals, others are not. For example, they promote unproven cancer cures such as this 6 Peruvian Cures For Cancer, Inflammation, Staph Infections And More and A Mother’s Son Was Dying From Cancer, So She Secretly Gave Him This. This last article claims that a cannabis tincture cured terminal cancer. While cannabis may be beneficial for symptom treatment, there is zero evidence that it can cure cancer.

Alternative Daily has also promoted anti-vaccination propaganda, such as advancing the idea that vaccines cause autism Report: Monkeys Subjected To Vaccines Develop Symptoms of Autism. There is no connection between vaccines and autism in humans. Finally, they promoted misinformation during the Covid-19 pandemic by claiming that Oregano Oil can kill viruses on surfaces Antibacterial Wipes are Sold Out: How to Make Your Own. According to Reuters Fact Check, this claim is false. In general, Alternative Daily publishes a mix of credible news and quackery level pseudoscience.
