Wikipedia's Faux Censorship of Alternative Medicine

""Arriving at a "neutral point of view" is what the editors and top dogs at the free online "fauxpedia" website Wikipedia claim they one day hope to achieve. But the popular information website's extensive track record of ignoring, denying and even blatantly lying about the scientific merits of natural and "alternative" medicine proves, quite obviously, that Wikipedia's stated editorial policy is nothing but empty rhetoric posing as sound intention.

And sadly, many people still don't realize the true nature of Wikipedia's endless assault on natural health, which is the subject of a new book project by published author, columnist and podcast host Mike Bundrant. Burdened by the fact that the web's sixth most popular site continues to deceive the public about the science behind alternative medicine, the dangers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the healing power of naturopathy and more, Bundrant has set out to right the wrongs of this highly misleading web resource.

But he needs your help. Taking on the fat cats isn't easy, and like every other major endeavor in today's world it requires substantial financial backing. In order to write and publish what will become one of the most comprehensive, science-based exposes on Wikipedia's active censorship of everything with which it disagrees, Bundrant is hoping to raise $67,100 by May 6, 2015.

"Wikipedia is on a misinformation campaign against alternative health and the healing arts," says Bundrant. "The public needs to know it. Natural health deserves fair representation. We're going to set the record straight. We need your help and invite you to get involved in the process.

As a matter of policy, Wikipedia actively denies the existence of science with which it disagrees

Wikipedia's entry for "Alternative Medicine," for instance, claims as fact that anything associated with alternative medicine is essentially quackery. This same entry, which millions of people will likely visit with the belief that it contains undeniable truth, openly admits that Wikipedia promotes conventional medicine, declaring anything alternative to not have any basis whatsoever in the scientific method.

The Wikipedia page for "Genetically modified food controversies" is similarly duplicitous. According to the Wikipedia gods, GMO food is completely safe and no different from "conventional food" in terms of its safety risk to humans. Wikipedia also contends that "no reports of ill effects have been documented in the human population from genetically modified food."

This last statement is patently false -- there's plenty of published research suggesting human health effects associated with GMO consumption. Even the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) agrees, noting that "serious health risks" are associated with GMO food, including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes to major organs and the gastrointestinal system.""
