The "Health Danger" "Health Ranger".

NaturalNews.com and its sister sites are run by Mike Adams (self-labeled "The Health Ranger") which promotes alternative medicine and related conspiracy theories. Even other quacks think it's a quack site. The site particularly specializes in vaccine denialism and the alleged vaccines-autism link, AIDS/HIV denialism, quack cancer treatments, and conspiracy theories about "Big Pharma". If there's an alternative medicine or alternative medical treatment out there, you can guarantee that NaturalNews has one article singing its praises to the sky and one more bashing the stupid "skeptics".

On Wikipedia, NaturalNews is not merely a deprecated source, never to be used for anything ("There is a near-unanimous consensus that the site repeatedly publishes false or fabricated information, including a large number of conspiracy theories."), but actually on the spam blacklist.

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