RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2020.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $1050Goal: $3000

NaturalNews.com (formerly Newstarget) is a strangely popular anti-science conspiracy website, founded by notorious crank-turned-businessman Mike Adams (self-labeled as "The Health Ranger") in order to promote a mishmash of random alternative medical therapies, denialism and other assorted woo, including quack cancer treatments. Even other quacks think it's a quack site.

The site particularly specializes in peddling misinformation and snake oil to adherents of fringe subcultures, including the anti-vaccination movement, AIDS/HIV deniers and proponents of anti-psychiatry. Located on the frontline of the grand awakening, NaturalNews tirelessly fights "Big Pharma", "dangerous chemicals", genetically modified food, the government and evidence-based medicine in general.

Giving Deepak Chopra a run for his money, Adams personally supports various pseudoscientific quantum woo, such as "quantum healing" and "quantum consciousness". To top things off, NaturalNews strangely advances a hard green position, even though the site simultaneously promotes global warming denialism.

If you cite NaturalNews on any matter whatsoever, you are almost certainly wrong.
