My previous post, the Skinny on Fat, contained some information regarding fat and cholesterol from Dr. Joe Mercola. Someone contacted me regarding him and some of his very questionable practices and beliefs. Among other things, he’s been ordered by the FDA to stop some illegal claims for his products. If nothing else, some of his business practices are on the shady side. Beyond that, he’s an advocate of homeopathy, which is non-scientific quackery at its finest. Most disturbingly, he has participated in a “vaccine awareness” public service announcement. He helps play up unfounded fears of vaccines which no one in the serious scientific community find plausible. For this reason I’m deleting the section of my last article in which he’s referenced.
