I just don't like having those quacks shown in any good light whatsoever, since with their eschewing of science, they produce a net gain in human suffering.
Even if the context this time is fits here, and the problem is an actual problem, it justs irks me how those people use it as a building block in their message that the "medical establishment" is rotten to the core. I mean, just look at the "related articles" links at the bottom.

> btw, "Natural" is used by lots of folks in lots of different ways ... I don't think you can pigeonhole it to the extent you seem to want to ...

Well, at least the term "natural medicine" (NaturalNews is a "medical" site after all, "Natural health news") is pretty well defined as crackpottery on the internet:
- Wikipedia redirects "natural medicine" to Naturopathy
- The google results are pretty conclusive too
