I've always appreciated his information on health matters, so had never suspected his emails to harbour any viruses, however I finally clued in & figured it out. EVERY time that I open up Dr Mercola's emails, I get a fraud phone call from 630-356-8462 within 10 seconds saying that, "your credit card has been used this morning".... I was nearly fooled the first time, but hung up and called my bank. They said never listen to any call claiming that, just hang up immediately. Sometimes they call from 1-784-133-4100 . Somehow Dr Mercola's website must be linked to scammers. I only get these calls IMMEDIATELY AFTER opening up his email and going into his website. WARNING: Be cautious.

Some people expect perfection from Mercola in healthcare while demanding so little of it from Big Pharma, Big Medicine and the Big Gov't. I have a serious cancer, and the drugs alone for are so expensive I could easily go bankrupt, plus suffer permanent health damage, plus not be even close to being cured. I have personally tried much of what Mercola offers. Is it perfect, no? Have I benefited from it? Yes, at 1/100th the expense, nd the cancer for now held at bay.

I have been receiving Dr. Mercola emails for 11 years (since 2008). I have archived hundreds and hundreds of these articles. His articles have helped me to be knowledgeable concerning many health matters. I have adjusted my own lifestyle through what I have learned from his posts, and am so much the better for it.
I have naturally lowered my blood pressure. Today I went to my naturopathic doctor, and he commented that I am one of the healthiest people that have come into their office (it is a large office with 4 doctors and numerous staff). I credit much of this to what I have learned from Dr. Mercola.
In fact, I think God that I just feel good all of the time. I am 62 years old and in excellent health.
Not everything I read of Dr. Mercola's posts do I take for myself. As with any author, anything that we read we are to evaluate based on our own understanding. But I can say that most of what Dr. Mercola writes I agree with. His articles are well researched and well written, and many times it is another expert that he interviews, so his coverage is quite broad.

Best health information resource online, thank you Mercola team!

Dr. Mercola has a lot of good articles, but if you ever challenge what he says with constructive criticism, he'll boot you from the site.
For instance, on his Web site, I wrote that:
1) Many people don't think ADHD is a real disease (even though Mercola does).
2) Mercola tells his readers to boycott Google, but he routinely includes videos from YouTube, which is owned by Google. That's hypocritical.
3) He is very down on alcohol (even in moderation), but seems to be A-OK with marijuana.
Can you believe that such mild comments got me banned from his site? I guess he's extremely insecure.
Anyway, even though he has a lot of good articles, please stay from his site. Or at the very least don't bother to leave any comments, because no dissent is allowed.
Mercola is also a crook. For years, he was selling "full-spectrum" fluorescent bulbs on his Web site. Then in the fall of 2016, he put out an article saying that any fluorescent bulbs are bad for you, and that you should switch to incandescent instead. Well, guess what--after publishing the article, he KEPT SELLING THE BULBS!!!! Even months later, he was still selling the harmful fluorescent bulbs.
I guess he just wanted to sell out his stock in order to make a profit. So, apparently he couldn't care less about the health of his readers--all he cares about is making a buck.
Please stay away from Crooked Joe.

Dr. Mercola has no reason to lead reader astray. His products seem top notch and they are "Made in the USA" not in China or India.
Review by Poulsen Vakhrushev2 years ago
Avoid this site at all cost, unless you want a good laugh (though spreading fear and misinformation is hardly funny). Nothing Joseph Mercola writes should be trusted. Simply put this website will praise everything natural as a cure all and demonize everything else. Conveniently, there is a store on the website where you can buy all the wonderful natural products touted on the sites various "educational" articles.

not suitable for misleading info it contains
Review by Balves2 years ago
There's so much to read and lots of insight. It's easy to go on a reading loop. Unlike some sites that give abrupt one liners, the information is detailed and interesting. It's important to remember that nothing is black and white and that information is constantly evolving. Appreciating a different perspective with an open mind is true education.

Website full of pseudoscience and woo.
Review by Vshef Riess3 years ago
Most of the opinions on this site are backed up by solid scientific research.
Mercola is ahead of his time, for example he warned about the dangers of Vioxx more than 10 years before it was pulled from the market due to a massive risk of death by heart attack and stroke. Pharmaceutical company Merk was ordered to pay $4.85 billion in payouts to patients who suffered heart attacks and strokes.
Review by Wynnifredd4 years ago
Both my mother and I have been reading and watching documentaries about health, the medical industry, vaccinations, and diet for many years now. This site has much of the same information as the other "alternative" or natural health sites and documentaries. I don't recall seeing any advertisements or links to the sale of any medications/supplements or such on any of the articles I've read. I have looked into the info on the BBB site and did a search about Dr. Mercola, from what I've read, it seems to me that he is being targeted for speaking out against the medical community and big pharma.
Do your research before spreading damaging rumors.
Review by Omone Wellemeyer4 years ago
I like that Mercola along with so many others are pushing for natural medicine. However his viewpoint is shortsighted and he would greatly benefit from reading a book or two on Ayurveda or having Ayurvedic Doctors on staff
For example one Mercola article advised garlic for herpes and even my grandma knows that garlic is heaty and hence good for flu but really bad for herpes...

I have found many useful articles that have helped me make informed decisions that have resulted in weight loss and well being. In less than 2 days I saw remission of serious heartburn using his guidelines for diet and I have lost 21 pounds in 7 weeks. I am thankful for this website, and I haven't spent a penny. I will continue to use this website for my better health.

Has an irrational Cult like following, disagree with it's Cult Members at your peril... Or like me, simply laugh at them, they are easy to whined up.
Review by Coireall Derrow4 years ago
This website is packed with great information on health and medical research. Those who are out of date may consider it to be controversial, but everything here is backed up by solid research.
Mercola for example was considered controversial when he exposed the problems with the drug Vioxx. Years later he was vindicated when Vioxx was recalled due to side effects including heart attack and stroke.
I suspect that the critical reviews come from competitor website.

Great products and super fast delivery. I order some of the pet nutritional supplements and we also order supplements for human consumption. Great products and I love all the videos and information they provide.
Review by Minakhmetov4 years ago
As a scientist, I find this website abhorrent. He provides lots of links, but they are always terrible sources. Often blogs from other quacks who use fear to sell stuff. He has admitted that he is an AIDS denialist and is at least open minded to the idea that cancer is just a fungal infection. Complete quackery.
Review by Thawab Faburiq4 years ago
He is not always right, but he does his research and present information that mainstream science often supports (albeit 10 years later). He is on the cutting edge of nutrition and fitness.

Fantastic website - packed full of health info - loved the articles on the healthiest cooking oils - thank you so much! I now only use coconut oil to fry. And I love the daily tweets with the latest articles. My new found health has made all the difference to my energy levels - you are what you eat!!! Thanks Dr Mecola.

"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 that were specifically covered under this guarantee. Consumers have also reported that they have experienced delivery issues. While www.mercola.com states that orders ship within 10 business days, consumers say they have waited much longer for their products. Customers allege that the company's service staff has been unable to provide explanations regarding this delay. Some consumers have also reported that Mercola provided them with shipment tracking numbers that were not valid with their respective carriers "
