(NaturalNews) was recently named the fourth largest alternative news website in the world by the DBKP Report ( NaturalNews delivers daily news, commentary and satire on natural health, alternative medicine and health freedom topics, calling into question the government's stance on vaccines, health care and pharmaceuticals while offering practical and useful information on natural cures, herbal remedies and nutritional therapies that really work to prevent and even cure degenerative disease.

The No. 1 alternative news website, according to Alexa rankings, is Alex Jones' Info Wars (, which also reprints many NaturalNews stories (with permission), especially when those stories intersect with issues of liberty and freedom (such as stories about the TSA, the government / pharma connection, etc.). has experienced a huge surge in popularity recently due to the appearance of Charlie Sheen on Alex Jones' radio show, where Charlie let loose with an over-the-top rage on numerous topics.

Second and third in the rankings were "Above Top Secret" and "Dr. Bruce Maccabee Research Website."

Continuing down the rankings are sites such as AlterNet, The Raw Story, and

Considerably lower in the rankings are sites such as OpEdNews, which recently announced it would no longer publish stories questioning the official government line on vaccines. This most likely means that site's rankings will fall even further as alternative news readers realize it has adopted the government's pro-vaccine stance and is now parroting Big Pharma's position on vaccines (including claiming Dr Wakefield has been discredited for fabricating research data, an allegation which is factually and provably false).

Why the alternative media is important in a free society

Here at NaturalNews, we are honored to be part of the extremely important alternative media -- perhaps the last place on the planet where intelligent journalism is still taking place on issues such as liberty, the coming economic collapse, vaccines, health freedom and other similar topics. While there is a lot of diversity (and even disagreement) among the sites in the "alternative media," here at NaturalNews we feel that the presence of the alternative media is absolutely vital to freedom -- especially since the mainstream media has, for the most part, abandoned real journalism in favor of corporate-scripted "agendalism." (There are exceptions, of course, but most conventional media reports are scripted by profit-driven corporations and packaged for consumption with a particular profit motive in mind...) currently carries an Alexa rating of 3557, which varies day to day depending on the news cycle. Much NaturalNews content is actually found on sister websites such as www.NaturalNews.TV (which serves up to 1.2 million video views each month), (health freedom cartoons) and a natural health research website.

NaturalNews content is headed up by Mike Adams, the editor of the site, who does everything from writing articles to producing videos (, running a nutrition-oriented non-profit center ( and composing and performing popular hi-hop music on alternative topics ( Adams is a Libertarian-minded health freedom advocate who used to be diseased but cured himself of borderline obesity and diabetes using nutritional therapies without a doctor.
