Analysis / Bias
In review, GetCancerRemedies.com publishes news regarding alternative medicine, supposed cancer-fighting foods, and Big Pharma conspiracy theories. For example, this article claims that Cilantro is a miracle cleanser in removing heavy metals from the body: How To Remove 80 % of Heavy Metals From The Body In 42 Days With This Plant. This of course is not true according to a study published in Scientific World Journal: “Less encouragingly, in a recent trial in 3- to 7-year old children exposed to lead, a cilantro extract was as effective as placebo in increasing renal excretion.”
GetCancerRemedies.com also spreads Anti-Vaxx propaganda such as this: Doctor Blows Whistle on Flu Shot: ‘It’s Designed to Spread Cancer’, which simply is not grounded in evidence and is sourced to medical quack Joseph Mercola. In general, there is very little credible information to be found on this website.
Overall, we rate GetCancerRemedies.com a conspiracy and quackery level pseudoscience site. (D. Van Zandt 12/28/2018)
