Have you even met and spoken to the man. Maybe he has not helped as many people as you, or written as many books as you. And maybe he hasn’t given as many lectures as you, but having met him myself and personally knowing several people he has helped as patients regain there health, I can honestly say he is a person who cares, but he is only one man trying to change the system.

He certainly is not going to jeopardize his integrity on making a quick buck. It’s just not what he is about.

He is against everything that current science believes in. Whatever a regular doctor will tell you is according to Mercola basicaly wrong.

You have a right to eat that, and I have a right to think he’s just going to fail with his hair growth test, because he is imho naive and often very wrong.

I’m not saying that current western medicine is perfect, its flawed and far from perfect, but being a naive believer in any snake oil is not helpful as well, and thats what Mercola imho is.

He’s very naive and often naively wrong, and these full head of hair claims will prove it soon.


#23

It doesn’t really matter whether he’s naieve or not, He’s backed himself into a corner now and will surely have to give more information about who it was he was working with even if it’s a failure.

For example??

ok Mercola claims:

soy is wrong, using sunscreens is wrong, if you got weight problems, you need hypnosis. High cholesterol is benefitial, TANING BEDS ARE HEALTHY according to him (if only they were not involving electromagnetic fields). It rarely gets more absurd than that so I hope these examples do satisfy you. You can watch the rest on youtube yourself.

the guy is clearly delusional.

I had an additional chat with Mercola’s staff to find out whether he is in a trial of a company or not. They said that he is not part of any company trials, he is testing this on his own.
However, the staff member I chatted with gave me link to some other article that Mercola wrote about, and that was about Follica’s success. She said that article might be useful to see what Mercola is doing. So either he is trying out some scam product or he got some “starting kit” from Follica, without officially being part of their trials. I believe the latter is very unlikely though :frowning:

more evidence to my “mercola testing snakeoil” theory :slight_smile:

but perhaps he’s trying something like Baccy is.

Yeah maybe. I would really like to get an answer from the guy himself, but I guess they won’t reveal anything until he writes about it again.

We need a law:

Every small-time operation that introduces a hair regrowth product must first deposit about $500,000 into a third-party holding account. Then, after a year on the market, the MPB community gets to vote on whether they should have their money confiscated for scamming us or not.

The confiscated funds can go to real legitimate MPB research.

He is Far from delusional, some of the stuff he says is backed up by the latest studies. Take sunscreens for example, recent studies have shown that infact people who use sunscreens have higher incidences of skin cancer compared to people who didn’t but were exposed to sunlight - only people who avoided sun exposure had the least incidences of skin cancer.

Same case about soy, media lately has been evangelizing soy (including soy milk) as more healthy compared to regular milk etc. However, studies do show that it increases estrogen levels in men and guys who probably drink 2-3 glasses of this everyday would definitely have a higher risk of gyno. I also remember some study about possible relation of estrogen & some form of cancer - don’t recall the exact study though.

I really don’t know about his reasoning for supporting taning beds and high-cholestrol so I’m really not gonna argue about that.

“The only evidence suggesting a relationship between sunscreen and melanoma is correlational, and thus cannot be used to establish a causal relationship.”

In lazy mans words: Most of the guys who sunbath all day long, do use sunscreens, so when compared to the guys who do not sunbath at all and thus dont use sunscreens) they have increased risks of cancer. Does this mean that sunscreens cause cancer? No, it just means, that guys who never use sunscreens rarely sunbath.

Okay Dr. Mercola… YOUR TIME IS UP.
It’s now been almost 4 months since your EXTRAORDINARY claim of regrowing a full head of hair.
Time to show us some photos.
As Dr. Carl Sagan once said: "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."
Words to live by.
:wink:

You just have to wait for his next video to judge by yourself. Till then, you’ll have this type of answer :

"Thank you for writing to Mercola.com.

We appreciate your inquiry on this. Unfortunately, we do not have any updated information on Dr. Mercola’s experiment with hair regrowth at this time. We hope to have some updated information in the future. We apologize we could not be of further assistance. If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know!"

Why would anyone believe that people can regrow hair in 3 months? I dont even think HM can do that.
