Why You Should Avoid All HONcode Certified Websites

Written by Print  E-mail

Beware Of This Image

Increasingly, we have noticed the use of this image (right) on health sites, so we investigated its merits.  HONcode (Health on the Net) certification has a list of "principles" that sites must supposedly adhere to, if they wish to bear this logo.

The first principle is that authors must be qualified medical professionals, because 'unqualified' people should be clearly identified as such.  The purpose is to diminish the credibility of anyone who is not licensed by the medical hierarchy, and to publicly label all potential competitors as unqualified.

We usually interpret such qualifications in the opposite manner.  If an individual has been exposed to years of pharmaceutical indoctrination at a sponsored medical school, then they will forever be tainted in favor of chemical warfare instead of medicine.  Since medical mistakes alone are the third leading cause of death in the United States, by their own statistics, "qualified professionals" are the last people whom we would ever seek credible health advice from.  By the way, that number is for medical mistakes only: not counting the deaths from properly prescribed medications and surgeries.

Who Is Behind HONcode?

Admitted at the HONcode web site is the fact that it is made up of everyone who has something to gain from the suppression of traditional and alternative medicines:

"The 60 participants came from 11 countries. They included U.S. heart surgeon Dr Michael DeBakey, physicians and professors, researchers and senior representatives of the World Health Organization (WHO), International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN), the European Commission, the National Library of Medicine and the G7-Global Healthcare Applications Project."

Even the World Health Organization is in on the act, which means that the Codex Alimentarius Commission is involved too.  We're proud not to be W.H.O. or physician-approved, because if we ever became licensed drug dealers, then we would not be able to sleep at night.  That's the difference between us, and those who have been certified.  Therefore, it is our unqualified, credential-less recommendation that you should never seek health information from HONcode accredited web sites.  Your life could depend upon it someday.

What Are Their Official Principles?

The HONcode web site states: "Principle 1 - Information must be authoritative".  Authoritative?  The implications of the term are intentional.  When did the orthodox medical establishment become a priesthood with authority over us?  You see, doctors don't just advise their patients anymore, they command; based upon their authoritative position.  In fact, they routinely separate children from their parents for "medical neglect", and don't think it can't happen to your family, if you challenge their authority.  This insidious terminology is becoming increasingly common throughout the medical field, along with the even more common term 'compliance', which we happen to be seeing everywhere now.  Unfortunately, we're not kidding about any of this.  Current medical policies are more influenced by money and power than science.

Their second "principle" is that certified web sites must state that any advice provided is merely "complementary" to the "expert advice" of a physician, and advice from others is never a replacement.  This principle is to ensure that the Internet is not allowed to slow business.  It's like a no-compete clause in a contract.  They actually call it a "principle" like some kind of Orwellian doublespeak.  If medical information on the Internet were just "complementary", then patients would have to visit their doctors more often, instead of less.  This principles is terribly convenient for the bottom line, just like the other principles.  It's all about increasing business and being a team player.  Perhaps more importantly, it is about discrediting sites such as ours, and maintaining an information monopoly.

The HONcode certification is listed on mainstream, team-playing health sites from Mayoclinic to WebMD, and even Dr. Andrew Weil's, but it is noticeably absent from all legitimate alternative health sites.  There are multiple reasons for this.  Not only are the HONcode people only interested in F.D.A. science (as evidenced by their love of pharma-blessed credentials), but most honest web sites actually want nothing to do with them.

Lastly, as if it still needed saying, there is no honor in the HONcode.

    Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for your advice

    I was often visited the website wholesomebabyfood to get information as it is so useful to me. Now after reading this artical, I've just realized that this website got the HONcode.

    Please help me to check if information on that website is realiable?
    And by the way, what do you think aboutBaby Led Weaning? I wonder if this weaning is good for our child in longterm?

    We would never consider a Honcode-certified website to be credible. The reasons for that are already in the article above. The purpose of the Honcode certification is to discredit alternative medicine, so sites that are certified are adhering to a political agenda. The Honcode symbol can even be a warning that the website will not contain any useful alternative information, and will even contain disinformation. Virtually any publication about orthodox medicine, regardless of its Honcode certification is dishonest, because all orthodox medicine is deceptive. For example, whenever they claim that they are "treating" illnesses, they are always actually just masking unpleasant symptoms, which encourages the underlying problem to get worse. It is more profitable that way.

    We don't see anything wrong with 'Baby Led Weaning', other than the fact that the name is ridiculous and poorly represents the process. Allowing a child to eat solid foods when he attempts to is natural, and it has been done for thousands of years. Contrary to some articles, it is not a breakthrough. It is ridiculous that some people feel that they need to wait until the child turns a doctor-approved age before he is allowed to eat solid food.

    Honcode exists because of advice such as this, and because of people like us. You can find freedom from the system. You can and should think for yourself. You should solve your health problems, instead of allowing yourself to become a slave to a governmentally licensed drug dealer. We are not going to shut up, and it is going to take more than the Honcode certification to stop people like us. Slowly but surely we are winning. The existence of the Honcode shows that our opponents are getting nervous.

    Hello, happy to find your site. Thanks.

    I noticed the first principle: Information must be authoritative. Appeal to authority is a logical fallacy, and their first principle is founded on it! Enough said.

    I really like your 'claimer' at the bottom of the pages. The usual disclaimers make me shudder with disgust.
