Why You Can Trust Health Information from Dr. Joseph Mercola
Finding quality health information on the Internet can be a major challenge. There are thousands of websites pertaining — in part or whole — to human health. Some are controlled by mega-corporations, medical and university organizations, while others are the projects of health care practitioners or entrepreneurs.
Many of these sites reflect the trends in the traditional medical establishment. They aim to dazzle and deceive, inventing pharmaceutical agendas and creating the need for pills and treatments through glitz and smooth talk. The usual underlying motive of these sites is not simply profit, but greed.
The top health sites are usually owned by big pharmaceutical companies. How can a consumer website offer accurate and independent health advice if it is backed by a major drug company?
