I am pretty sure if you are here reading this you may have visited the site.

A few years back I had this site saved in my favorites but I have seriously lost my patience with the article quality of Natural News. It borderlines, excuse me, its surpasses the poor journalism and editing standards seen in cable news like Faux News or MSNBC. On occasion there are sencere subjects which prove informative and for that reason I have weathered the stupidity this long. I have stopped reading after becoming annoyed to the point of no return by over-exposure to a continuous feed of click-whoring headlines like "Curing PTSD With Herbs" or "Obama Kills Children" and other headlines which are rarely ever properly justified given poor evidence and sketchy premises. IMO this style of journalism not only damages the credibility of the natural movement, but also saturates the internet with inaccurate information further delegitimatizing a broader message.

Today, I deleted Natural News from my web browser.

I disabled their bookmark long ago on my PC.


Their info is not reliable in my opinion. Too many errors and "half-truths".
They are obviously on a mission, but I feel that they are actually harming their own mission by presenting so much invalid information. Most aware people can see right through their mistakes, and discredit what they are reading.

As Mark Twain once said,
"People who don't read the newspaper are uninformed. Those who do read them are misinformed."

What specifically are you looking for?

I appreciate some of what Mike at Natural News contributes, but I definitely wear filters when reading.

A high quality source of info when researching specific conditions or treatments:
http://www.greenmedinfo.com/

Mercola.com is clearly pitching supplements, but lots of good education as well. More reliable than Natural News. He's done tons of great interviews, available on youtube.

Curzone.com is the wild west of alternative medicine. Can be useful if you know what you're looking for, but...well...you'll see if you go there.
