Analysis / Bias
In review, Eluxe Magazine publishes plenty of legitimate articles pertaining to natural products and health news. However, we found examples of Eluxe promoting conspiracies and pseudoscience in reviewing the website. In one article, they report on the dangers of Chemtrails sourced from Geoengineering Watch, which we have rated as Tin-Foil Hat on the conspiracy scale.
In another article, they promote anti-vaccination propaganda while sourcing from the pseudoscience websites of Mercola and Collective-Evolution. Finally, they also promote anti-GMO propaganda that Joseph Mercola writes. Again, Eluxe Magazine does produce a lot of beneficial and accurate information; however, due to publishing some questionable information, we rate them strong for both Conspiracy and Pseudoscience.
Failed Fact Checks
- None by a third party. See the examples above.
