Analysis / Bias
In review, the website offers stories with loaded emotional wording to scare people regarding their health such as this HARVARD SCIENTIST URGES PEOPLE TO STOP DRINKING “LOW-FAT” AND SWEETENED MILK IMMEDIATELY. Interestingly this story is not linked to Harvard at all but to other questionable sites such as Rense, which is also a non-credible pseudoscience website. Other debunked claims by this website are that vaccines cause autism. They don’t. Further, he promotes dangerous cancer cures, which simply are not proven. Finally, he also promotes detoxification, which is totally unproven to work. In general, almost everything on this website needs to be questioned as almost everything clicked is either false or misleading.
