Talk[edit]

Since this is a page about a commercial organisation I think special care should be taken in formulating the texts. In the chapter "Assessing effectiveness" is a text that sounds a little too enthusiastic: "Last autum a very unique scientifalcal gene study was done by the Taueret laboratories with a sensational outcome.". Shouldn't that text be changed? Black Raven (talk) 07:13, 27 August 2018 (UTC) Ok, now that text has been removed; great! — Preceding unsigned comment added by ZwarteRaaf (talkcontribs) 19:08, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Attempts to hide critical information[edit]

Not sure if this warrants a new discussion heading, but since it's 2+ years later I thought it alright (I'm new to editing). An anonymous user attempted to hide criticism of ASEA products and the ASEA company, namely that of Harriet Hall and what was done by Italy. This was done by using the hide tags, rather than deleting the text (I assume to avoid automatic reversals). This was done across about three edits earlier today (22/03/2021). I've unhidden them, and added a source for one of Harriet Hall's quotations (which I do believe was added earlier, but possibly again removed)[1]. If this is better handled in another way don't hesitate to tell me. Chronque (talk) 23:54, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

Critical information is being removed - endangering neutrality[edit]

I'm not a very experienced Wikipedia editor, but I noticed that earlier posted critical information about the ASEA product is (persistently) being removed - which means that the information is losing its neutrality (only positive and no critical information sounds biased to me - especially since its about an (expensive) alternative health product). I'm trying to "protect" the page against it (although already part of the critical information is lost), but that means that I now seem to be in an edit-war - but luckily the edit-war seems to have stopped (original text from Oct 2018, this update from Jan 2019). What should be done? (what should I have done?)

The text I'm trying to protect:

Physician Harriet Hall has reviewed the scientific literature related to the assessment of ASEA as a dietary supplement, noting that there is no acceptable published evidence to confirm that it has any health benefits in humans.[8]

This with the following reference: [8] Harriet, Hall. "Did Salt Water Supplement Regenerate Baby's Heart Valve?". Skeptical Inquirer. Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. Retrieved 21 July 2018.

Earlier the article also contained the following text at the bottom:

Assessing effectiveness Medical doctor Harriett Hall has written about the effectiveness of the dietary supplement ASEA several times on the Science-Based Medicine website [25][26] and notes that "... there are testimonials galore; but there is no acceptable published evidence to confirm that it has any health benefits in humans."[8]

Based on update history: in the last couple of months a lot of more critical information about this company/product has been removed; mainly by PaulEdwardMichael, Griffind056 and CanukSteve. Black Raven (talk) 18:42, 8 May 2020 (UTC)

Update August 2020: Much critical information (including legal information) restored again. Black Raven (talk) 14:30, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
