Rather agree with this bloggers list of anti-science web sites:

https://skeptoid.com/episodes/4495

Familiar and agree these are mostly anti-science:
Heartland.org
ChristianAnswers.net

I'd add Prevention Magazine both the paper and web site

What are yours?

surely any anti-vaxxer website must be considered anti-science ?

And here's another one I'm surprised nobody brought up: conservapedia. They promote young-earth creationism, climate change denial, that vaccines cause autism, that relativity is false and black holes aren't real, and many other things. It's basically all-in-one.

Anti-GMO is interesting, because most of them are not politically conservative.

I just read the list. Boy does that Doctor Oz one make sense. Now I understand how there are medical miracles happening every other week, and why I constantly receive conflicting information. I had no idea about any of it until I read RationalWiki's section on alternative medicine.

You know what they call alternative medicine that has been proven to actually work? They call it... medicine.
