How to Properly Cite


Welcome to!

Through the years, countless people have shared and referenced content posted throughout my website, giving people the information they need to help them take control of their health.

While you can still freely share my articles with anyone who needs — and can benefit from — this health knowledge, there are substantial changes in how you can share this information to your audience.

Articles Will Only Be Available for 48 Hours Upon Posting

Back then, Mercola articles can be easily shared by posting the link on social media or linking to it in a webpage. But now, circumstances have forced me to change the way I engage with you, my dear readers.

August 4, 2021, I posted an announcement mentioning that I will be deleting all content within 48 hours of posting. This includes over 15,000 articles that has been posted through the years.

It was a tough decision, but it needed to be done in the name of peace.

In spite of this major change, I still want to give everyone the means and the permission to share new articles elsewhere in the hopes that other readers will get the health information they need.

So what can you do if you want to cite a recently published article before it goes away?

It’s simple: You’re allowed to copy the article word for word and republish them on your website — as long as proper attribution is given and the copy remains free. To reiterate, you may republish the article, as long as it’s credited properly and unaltered. Lastly, we never charge a fee for linking our content.

Below are some ways you can republish a article.
