Analysis / Bias
In review, RealFarmacy is a health news website that promotes both conspiracies and mostly pseudoscience. For example, many articles on this website promote anti-vaccination propaganda such as this: Proof That It Is Actually Vaccinated People Who Are Spreading Communicable Disease. This article cites the credible Kaiser Health News and then turns to right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for analysis. RealFarmacy also publishes miracle cancer cures and prevention such as this: Manuka Honey: Improves Sleep, Boosts Immunity, Prevents Cancer, and Is a Natural Antibiotic. In case you were wondering, there isn’t evidence that Manuka Honey prevents cancer. Some other Pseudoscience topics you will find on RealFarmacy are humans being poisoned by chem trails, Fluoride alarmism, and most commonly how deadly GMO’s are to humans. In general, this site disrespects science to such a degree it is less than non-credible.
A factual search reveals too many failed checks to list.
Overall, we rate RealFarmacy a Quackery level Pseudoscience website for the promotion of anti-vaccination propaganda, as well as dangerous miracle cures for cancer and a complete rejection of science on all levels. (7/21/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 1/19/2019)
