History

Founded in 2009, VacTruth.com is an anti-vaxx website that promotes the debunked dangers of vaccines. Like most non-credible sources, they do not list ownership, nor disclose a mission on their about page. They do list authors, some with biographies, but none with expertise relating to medicine and vaccinations.

Funded by / Ownership

VacTruth.com does not disclose ownership and is funded through donations.

Analysis / Bias

In review, VacTruth.com does not even attempt to be a credible science website, with every article either portraying vaccines negatively or outright being false and opposed to the consensus of science. For example, the article New Research Proves Brains of Children with Autism are Loaded with Aluminum has been thoroughly debunked by scientists. This article, Baby Foreskin Is Being Used To Make Vaccines, is another that is completely false.

In general, very little information on this website is verified as true.
