First off, I can't believe this site has a yellow rating! Why? Because some of the users here don't subscribe to the idea of alternative/holistic health? Seriously? Who's the bigger troll in this case: Dr. Mercola or his critics/competitors?
I've visited this website for years, I've purchased my water filters from here, this site is safe. I have Ad Block Plus, so I don't see ads, if there are any. He may have one popup or two relating to special offers, but you can just click "close".
I personally agree with most of Dr. Mercola's suggestions and ideas, but if you don't, that's fine. However, giving low ratings because you don't agree is RIDICULOUS! I still can't believe that's the reason for the yellow rating, I totally thought it was because this site had malware problems, or something like that! I'm totally *smh* at that...
Excellent site. A lot of useful information on "alternative" medicine and hot topic issues relating to health. He doesn't always agree with conventional medicine so Dr. Mercola often gets hated on by the barret quackwatch cabal and others with that inclination. I have purchased many items from the site for years and never had a problem.
Unlike conventional medical sites, Mercola's site is not influenced by big pharma. His information is almost always backed up by experts and science. A good stopping off place to research on your own and Make Up Your Own Mind. To let any one person or site determine your medical treatments is not the best route to go. But this site offers so much information not found in other places that it is very useful in research.
I've had this site in my bag of tools for years and I am healthier for it.
One of the most informative, useful and scientifically based sites around. Unfortunately the FDA (& similar organisations the world over) have been caught letting their decisions be influenced by the money from large corporations with vested interests.
I listen to the FDA & similar organisations AND sites like this one - look for the vested interests and then make my own mind up.
You sound like a "Doctor" trying to protect his bottom line. Should I actually shun Dr. Mercola's advice in favor of the FDA? The same industry that approves dangerous and questionable drugs EVERYDAY? The same corrupt entity that promotes GMO corn? Come on! People deserve an opportunity to design their own health and make their own choices. Knowledge is power. Quit making medicine an occult science!
This site is very useful and informative. I have purchased items from Dr. Mercola's site and they have been high quality items. This site is one of my top go to sites for information.
The people trying to give this site a bad rating are no doubt pharmaceutical paid shills or by a web bot. Do not listen to them. Check the site out. It may or may not be for you, but it does give alternative information to help avoid taking harmful pharmaceutical drugs. Frankly, the pharmaceutical industry and the FDA are just as bad at giving information to the public as the main stream media is about reporting real news. You need to find the truth yourselves.
Mercola.com is my #1 go-to site for general information about health and nutrition. I expect it to be under attack from industry-controlled agencies because they themselves are under fire and have billions of dollars to fight back. I have worked within BigPharma long enough to see how dishonest industry can be; my decision to trust Mercola is an informed one.
"A recent review of consumer complaints filed with the BBB of Chicago & Northern Illinois against your Mercola Health Resources, LLC delineates a pattern of consumer allegations. Consumers are alleging that Mercola Health Resources does not honor the 100% money-back guarantee listed on your website. Customers have reported that refunds have not been provided for returns"
This person's supplements were all recalled. So why should you trust him? He talks about stuff that is sorta true, and the other stuff he has on there is ads for his bad products. I found this site a while ago that you have to pay for to get stuff but it listed that his products are recalled.
THANK YOU for the REAL truth! Dr. Mercola offers honest information. This is the MOST informative alternative site out there! Bought and use many of his products, all excellent, and are better quality than what I can find in my local stores. I wish I had known about him 11 years ago BEFORE we gave our second child her baby vaccines. She suffered two seizures and has lasting damage because of them. Thanks to this site, I was able to find out valuable info that my conventional doc wouldn't tell me about. He told me the vaccines were completely safe. What a LIE! I go to Mercola FIRST if we have any health questions!
