Despite trying to market itself as a news source about natural products and the lifestyles associated with it, NaturalNews.com appears to be little more than a source of fearmongering and pseudoscientific claims, including ones about vaccination and GMOs. I am a critic of the pharmaceutical and medical industries myself, and I likewise have some concerns about bioengineering; however, these criticisms are at least intellectually honest. I wouldn't say the same for NaturalNews.com.
Fear-mongering psuedo-science, quackery, conspiracy theories and "proving" outlandish claims out of whole cloth. Site seems to think if its authors shout out hyperbole about how the sky is falling loudly enough, followers will be converted. "HItler" and "Nazi" metaphors run rampant. Climate change deniers and anti-vaxxers may find this approach comforting, but to me this reeks of stale-urine-yellow journalism.
Pushes a wide range of #quackery, not all innocuous, and spouts dangerous misinformation. Dangerous in the sense of "tries to frighten people away from lifesaving medical treatment in order to make a fast buck from their misfortunes"
It is more than probable at least some of the therapies and/or claims they make are illegal in countries less lax than the USA as regards consumer health & protection.
Run by Mike Adams, nicknamed the "Health Danger" and no bloody wonder.

One of the least reputable places to get accurate information. The site is run by Mike Adams who is devoid of any integrity whatsoever and makes millions every year playing on the fear of others. He uses fear mongering, misinformation, and scare tactics to sell you bogus products. Mike Adams will post any claim to any conspiracy theory no matter how crazy it is. Mike Adams has even encouraged those on his site to murder people at one point.
He literally advocates murder.
Direct quote from Mike Adams of Natural News, referring to his critics: "it is the moral right — and even the obligation — of human beings everywhere to actively plan and carry out the killing of those engaged in heinous crimes against humanity."
He then went on to list names of his critics on another website he created, none of whom have committed any "heinous crimes" whatsoever.
This is a pseudoscience and conspiracy website. The opinions it publishes go against all of the best scientific evidence available. It's misleading claims are dangerously unethical (following its unqualified medical advice can result in serious health consequences). Natural News provides no evidence to support it's claims. Please at least read the Wikipedia page about this website before you truest anything on it.
This website perpetuates lies and pseudoscience. Countless times, this website denies science and perpetuates misinformation, sometimes with a dangerous nature. When one sees that they sell alternative "medicine", it becomes clear that this is nothing better than a pure scam.
Promotion of blatantly false quackery such as homeopathy, conspiracies, astrology, chemtrails, vitamin C megadosing and other "miracle" "natural" "cures" ...
Anti-vaccine, anti-science, anti-biotech, anti-GMO, anti-pharmacy...
Vitriolic, irrational sensationalism such as quoting out of context abounds in the site itself and in the site owner's responses to negative comments on WOT...
While it is easy to dismiss this sort of mindless irrationality as a relatively harmless annoyance in the grand scheme of things, I am quite concerned about the effect of naturealnews and similar web sites and books on the minds of children. In particular, the long-term psychological impact of the irrational delusion such exposure may bring about, or even the delusion itself, may stay with affected individuals through adulthood. This may in turn influence *their* children, and so on.
Natural News is run by a bang up job that does not provide any evidence whatsoever, I would have let it slide if he did provide something trustable, but this person/organization is feeding on the minds of the gullible. I would need much explaining if any of these claims are right, any single one of them.
Being precise about the dangers of Natural News would require a whole website. Fortunately there are many such easily located:
Misleading claims; misinformation; unscientific. Makes claims that are not verifiable by the scientific method. This site also appears to be anti-evidence based medicine. Use extreme caution and verify their claims by doing your research.
