"Your site is so interesting! I love what you have to say in every area. The articles on the real estate bubble are very clear and, I believe, right on target (thank goodness I own my house free and clear and don't have a second one). Your nutrition stuff is always excellent too, and the political stuff is so fun and right on "target". Keep up the great work!" - T. Miller

"Thank you for all the time and effort that's gone into the CWRC and NaturalNews sites, I've spent the last two weeks or so plowing through them, and have come out the other side much more educated, and motivated to start paying a lot more attention to my own health." - Conrad

"Outstanding work! It has helped me to organize my confused ideas about many health topics, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

Congratulations and thanks for your help!" - C. Noguera
