NaturalNews is a rather odd source to be running into on lwn.net. As far as I understand it, they will mine any source whatsoever to show their point that conventional (science-based) medicine is bad in just about all cases (which is harmful if believed).
The quote might give some people the impression that this is a reputable site, like, say, New Scientist, the next quote. I doubt that many readers of lwn will be mislead by this for long however.
What if a creationist site had come up with a statement supportive of free software, or a truther site backed open source? Or a place selling free energy machines (invest now!). I'm not suggesting to know the answer, but it's one for lwn folks to think about.
