Natural Health Guru Predicts Flood of Hate Mail Following Release of New Online Video Parody
A new free animated video released by popular natural health website Mercola. com is building major controversy due to its creative and entertaining parody of everyone involved in today's health care system, from the medical profession to the drug companies to the US Government - even consumers. Sure to offend as well as educate, this video is a must-see!
Schaumburg, IL (PRWEB) March 23, 2006
Although a free animated video parody called The Town of Allopath (http://www. mercola. com/townofallopath/townofallopath. htm) was just released online by popular health and wellness website Mercola. com, the video is already building viral steam (and major controversy) across the Internet.
The entertaining 7-minute video animation creatively parodies everyone involved in the existing health care system -- the greedy pharmaceutical industry, the self-interested medical profession, the inept FDA, a general public ignorantly aiding in their own downfall, and even the so-called "crackpots" and "quacks" who are ridiculed for sounding the alarm.
Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of Mercola. com, expects to be inundated with hate mail from those who have a vested interest in maintaining the medical "status quo." He admits to a thick skin, however, stating: "I'm willing to risk criticism for the chance to inspire people to examine their own beliefs about the existing medical paradigm, which is riddled with flaws that are dangerous to both their own health and the nation's financial future."
Dr. Mercola predicts that health-conscious viewers will quickly be attracted to The Town of Allopath's (http://www. mercola. com/townofallopath/townofallopath. htm) simple and colorful message.
At the same time, he hopes that the video will illustrate the need for everyone to "take off their blinders and wake up" to the very real issues of political favors, scientific bias, widespread greed, shady deals, and self-imposed ignorance -- issues he believes are rampant in health care today.
When asked why Mercola. com would invest the time and resources to create and produce this professional video, Dr. Mercola, founder of Mercola. com, explained:
"It's very simple. Once people see for themselves what this video reveals, they're going to tell all their friends and loved ones about it. We get to demonstrate the flawed logic behind our current healthcare system in an entertaining yet provocative manner that will prompt people to share it with others. That fits in perfectly with the mission of Mercola. com"
