Joseph Mengele, I Mean Mercola DAMN YOU AUTOCORRECT!!

"Dr" Joseph "don't talk about any of my FDA letters, the FTC settlement, or my Better Business Bureau report" Mercola, is an osteopath who's clinic in Illinois is permanently closed (thankfully).  Unfortunately, however, his web site remains one of the largest quackology outlets on the web.  He peddles all of the usual bullshit, homeopathy, natural remedies, anti-vax rhetoric, but of course as he says on his web site

" is not, in other words, a tool to get me a bigger house and car, or to run for Senate. I 

fund this site, and therefore, am not handcuffed to any advertisers, silent partners, or corporate 


So it is just coincidence that his site contains a store selling products with his name on them.  The quackwatch article on Mercola reveals that he has an incredibly large home and actually has made a lot of money from his bullshit web site and products.  At the time I  visited the Mercola store section of the site displayed a message saying it was down for maintenance.  I don't know how long it's been like that, but I am curious if it might have something to do with the 5.3 Million dollar settlement Mercola just made with the FTC in April for selling tanning beds that he claimed prevented cancer.

How this man still has a medical license I cannot fathom.  With several letters from the FDA and orders to stop selling fraudulent or dangerous products, the Illinois Medical Board, must have their heads up Bruce Rauner's ass.  You can look up Mercola's medical license and see that they have never even disciplined him since at least before 1990.  However the look up also reveals that in 2014 Mercola settled a malpractice lawsuit for almost $400,000.  The only description of the suit I found was on a law blog, where MERCOLA PRESCRIBED THE WRONG THING TO A PREGNANT WOMAN AND HER CHILD WAS BORN WITH COGNITIVE BIRTH DFECTS!!!

This anti-vax piece of shit caused the very same thing he claims vaccines do, using "medicine" he claims is safe, natural, and harmless.  If you see him in public call him a douche for me please, and if you read this Joseph, Fuck You.
