wrong with Quack Watch?
||August 21, 2009
I have long believed that Quack Watch obscures facts and
as I researched Sprilina I came across proof to substantiate
this fact. Below you will find my side by side comparisons
to document this fact. Evaluate both sides of the facts
and see for yourself.
|Spirilina or Blue
|Quack Watch says
||Doctor Research says
| Algae: False Claims and Hype "These claims are
bunkum. The FDA has concluded that there is no evidence
that spirulina (or phenylalanine) is effective as an
appetite suppressant. The FDA has also noted that the
"65% protein" claim is meaningless because,
taken according to their label, spirulina products provide
only negligible amounts of protein." Quack
||"It is the nature's richest and
most complete source of nutrition. Spirulina has a unique
blend of nutrients that no single source can offer...Spirulina
exhibits therapeutic functions such as antioxidant,
anti-bacterial, antiviral, anticancer, anti-inflammatory,
anti-allergic and anti-diabetic and plethora of beneficial
functions." Research report #2 Blue-green
|Note that Quack Watch picks one or two items they
can use to falsely claim something is not good. The
statement that Algae is not an appetite suppressant
may be true but it does not mean Algae is bad. The report
is misleading and obscures the facts that Algae is a
viable and worthwhile nutriment.
||If the medical community had a drug that
did what Blue Green Algae did it would be front page
news. Instead they want us to believe it is harmful.
Ask yourself why are they doing this?
This is the first of future articles about how Quack Watch
obscures and distorts the truth.
