It is easy to attack the messenger, when you can't attack the message. In this case, the message, is one of value.
Attacking an honest messenger is nor good, I agree. However, an honest messenger doesn't select the messages to support his advertising campaigns.
So, forget it is even Mercola if you don't like what is there, take a look at it from Dr Seyfried's point of view, and search for Dr Seyfrieds video sponsored by Boston College, it is 4 minutes long, and tells the whole research background to this...
Wow! Real research documented in 4 minutes of "sponsored" video! I guess all the science journals with their peer reviewers and such can just pack it, huh. No need for actual documentation of protocols, conflict-of-interest statements, sample selection, ethics review, and results, any more. Just make a video that supports what Mercola is peddling, and send it off.

Seriously, if Seyfried and Mercola have a message that's meaningful, the proper conveyance is published, credible, replicable and replicated, scientific documentation, not a sales pitch for Mercola's quackery and woo.

I'll do the work for you - here it is
Since you are assisting Mercola in selling his goods, and bills thereof, it's not me that the burden is on, it's you and Mercola. So do your work and provide some actual documentation (sources). If there's any worthwhile research, the documentation is readily available. Caution — Woo-peddling quacks are known to misrepresent research reports, giving (often) a story that the written documentation belies. I suggest you take care that any Mercola references you rely on actually say what The Master tells you to believe.
