They claim that “Big Pharma” is evil and has built their business model around keeping people sick in order to perpetually reap profits. Yet a quick glance at the store on his website reveals a variety of products making grandiose claims, though each one is followed up by an asterisk, which lets you know that none of it has been reviewed by the FDA (or anyone else who actually practices medicine).
I recently had a run-in with Mercola’s significant other, Erin Elizabeth, who told me that I’m wrong about calling her out for selling woo, because she doesn’t actually sell anything on her website. She’s intentionally set herself up this way to be able to try to play the “I don’t sell anything” card. It’s bullshit. While Erin doesn’t sell anything herself, she’s an accomplice to her boyfriend, and reaps the benefits indirectly from him.
