      3. Whenever possible any health claims made are supported by footnotes to citations, other references, or hyperlinks to Web pages of other third parties. More than half of the pages on this site contain references.
        « Back to Top |   
    2. Is the last modification date of the Web Site's pages clearly displayed?
      1. No! It is simply unrealistic, too time consuming, and costly to do so on any modern Web site. Not only that but most changes on web pages are cosmetic in nature, and usually relate more to layout design changes, typo corrections, and changes in advertising then to substantive content changes. If this standard ever meant anything, it most certainity does NOT in today's world of Web design. On all modern Web sites, once a webpage has been written its informational content is simply never going to change.
        « Back to Top |   
  5. Does this site make a claim relating to the benefits or performance of a specific medical treatment, commercial product or service?
    1. Yes, a claim is being made that the Natural Health Perspective Health, Wellness, and Longevity programs work when followed completely over a long enough time period.
      1. These claims are general in nature, rather than specific, and consist of little more than stating that following a 'sensible nutritional and exercise program' will improve health and longevity over the long run.
        1. This site provides the details of what is a 'sensible nutritional and exercise program.'
        2. This site expands the scope of a 'sensible nutritional and exercise program' to include several other Natural Health areas.
        3. All general claims made are supported by common sense and a logical argument presentation of suggested health principles and guidelines; rather than asking visitors of this site to rely on the health credentials of the provider of information and advice on this site.
          1. In other words, this site presents a top-down approach, called holism, to the subject of health; rather than the reductionist approach, or bottom-up approach, of biochemistry.
      2. These general claims are available in the top margin and footer of most pages of this site by clicking on the Wellness Progam (which contains the Introduction, Essentials links) and FAQ hyperlinks.
    2. Specific health claims made on specific pages, whenever possible, are supported by footnotes to references available at the bottom of the respective pages.
    3. No product or service is being sold directly by this site.
    4. The Natural Health Perspective Web site can be divided into two separate sections. The primary section exists to make health claims. The secondary section of this site exists to attract visitors to our Web site, and makes no health claims. Increased hits to our site along with more web pages is expected to raise our page rank in the various Web search engines. And, will ultimately increase the probability that people searching for our health information will actually find it with a search engine. In short, the no health claims section of our site is expected to make our health claims section more visible to the public at large.
      1. The Health Claims Section - uses the original look.
        1. Original Look

      2. The No Health Claims Section - has a different look to it.
        1. New Look
          1. The Site Logo displays the following Alternate Text: "No health claims are being made on this portion of the Web site." Which is best seen in text mode only viewing.
          2. The upper left column, or margin, of key Web page hyperlinks is missing.
          3. The text background is pure white.
          4. Minimal formatting that usually defaults to the Times New Roman font.
          5. Each of these Web pages explicitly states on the bottom in red letters: "No health claims are being made on this Web page."
        2. Consists of the following Web pages:
          1. Administrative Web pages - The Agenda Info, and FAQ Web pages are the only administrative Web page that make a strong health claim. But, a few of these pages are especially not associated with any health claims.
