Analysis / Bias
While there are a few credible bits of information on this website, most falls within the realm of pseudoscience. There are articles about oils and herbs that create magical cures and promote the idea of Alien mega-structures being found in space. Many stories focus on pseudosciences such as astrology, which has zero groundings in science or evidence.
In another story, Strong Immunity and Health is the Key to Beating Coronavirus; they promote that Moringa oleifera may boost immunity enough to fight Covid-19. While Moringa oleifera does have some effect on immunity, there is zero evidence to support it may be beneficial in the prevention of Covid-19. Curious Mind Magazine is a quackerly level pseudoscience website.
