Analysis / Bias
In review, Healthy Holistic Living is a typical pseudoscience website that promotes anti-vaccination propaganda as well as anti-GMO propaganda. Healthy Holistic Living also promotes miracle cures such as this: Study: Manuka honey kills more bacteria than all available antibiotics. There isn’t any evidence to support this claim. This site also promotes Chemtrail conspiracy theories.
