EcoHealth deceives medical journal and the public

A nonprofit group that’s received millions of dollars of taxpayer funding to genetically manipulate coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology is at the center of a letter that appears to willfully deceive the public about the true origins of SARS-CoV-2.

Emails obtained by U.S. Right to Know show that EcoHealth Alliance, which has been working with the Wuhan lab to create genetically modified coronaviruses, created a letter published in a prestigious journal, The Lancet, in February 2020. The letter, signed by 27 authors — some of whom did not disclose their association with EcoHealth as conflicts of interest — called for “rapid, open and transparent sharing of data” on COVID-19, and labeled any ideas that the virus came from a lab as conspiracy theory.

However, U.S. Right to Know found that EcoHealth Alliance president Peter Daszak was the one who actually drafted the statement, and that it was purposely written in such a way to make it look like it was “simply a letter from leading scientists,” rather than organized by a group with a deep financial and business stake in the issue.

But as he began to experience the failures of the conventional model in his practice, he embraced natural medicine and found great success with time-tested holistic approaches. He founded The Natural Health Center (formerly The Optimal Wellness Center), which became well-known for its whole-body approach to medicine.

In 1997, Dr. Mercola integrated his passion for natural health with modern technology via the Internet. He founded the website to share his own health experiences and spread the word about natural ways to achieve optimal health. is now the world’s most visited natural health website, averaging 14 million visitors monthly and with over one million subscribers.

Dr. Mercola aims to ignite a transformation of the fatally flawed health care system in the United States, and to inspire people to take control of their health. He has made significant milestones in his mission to bring safe and practical solutions to people’s health problems.

Dr. Mercola authored two New York Times Bestsellers, The Great Bird Flu Hoax and The No-Grain Diet. He was also voted the 2009 Ultimate Wellness Game Changer by the Huffington Post, and has been featured in TIME magazine, LA Times, CNN, Fox News, ABC News with Peter Jennings, Today Show, CBS’s Washington Unplugged with Sharyl Attkisson, and other major media resources.
