Analysis / Bias

The mission of the website appears to be the sale of questionable nutrition and natural health related products, with articles promoting a wide variety of health-related pseudoscience. For example, Dr. Axe promotes chelation therapy as a treatment for autism, even though it has been thoroughly debunked. He also promotes coffee enemas as a means to fight cancer even though they have been shown to be unsafe. On this website, you will also find many more articles promoting natural foods and health products that are not scientifically based.

Overall, this a quackery level pseudoscience website. (D. Van Zandt 10/26/2017) Updated (10/09/2019)
