Chicago, IL, November 13, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Mercola.com will celebrate Thanksgiving with its annual Black Friday Sale, offering Free Shipping worldwide on Mercola products from November 22 to December 1, 2010.
Dr. Joseph Mercola, the natural health expert and New York Times bestselling author who founded Mercola.com in 1997, says that the annual Black Friday Sale is a show of gratitude to over 1.4 million newsletter subscribers and concerned citizens who help spread the word on various health advocacies, especially on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites.
According to Dr. Mercola, one accomplishment of Mercola.com is the growing movement toward making informed vaccine choices.
“We did make a difference last year – the flu vaccine was not mandated! The US contracted for the manufacture of more than 170 million doses of swine flu vaccine, but we were able to contribute to the fact that only 90 million doses were used in the country,” he reports in a Mercola.com article, also lauding the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) and other partner organizations for their expertise and support.
Dr. Mercola is personally grateful this Thanksgiving for “the opportunity to live with freedom--a precious commodity that not everyone in the world enjoys.”
“To be truly thankful means taking care of our health freedom, which is very much alive in our active partnership at Mercola.com. At the end of the day, we’re sending signals to the government that we want to influence policy and see reforms instituted in the current health care system,” Dr. Mercola says.
A 400-year-old tradition, Thanksgiving Day has its roots in Plymouth Colony in the fall of 1621. The first official Thanksgiving Day was celebrated on June 29, 1676 in Charlestown, Massachusetts and has since become a national holiday.
Free Shipping on all products worldwide (except for certain countries) will run from November 22 to December 1, 2010, 11:59 CST. Promo applies to orders worth $50 and above and is not valid on grass-fed meats or cheeses, organic fruits, mercury-free salmon, or the Sedona Method audio course.
Mercola.com is the world's most visited natural health website, averaging 14 million visitors monthly. It was founded in 1997 by Dr. Joseph Mercola, a licensed physician and surgeon in the state of Illinois and author of multiple New York Times bestsellers. Dr. Mercola was voted the 2009 Ultimate Wellness Game Changer by the Huffington Post, and has been featured in TIME magazine, LA Times, CNN, Fox News, ABC News, the Today Show, CBS’s Washington Unplugged with Sharyl Attkisson, The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, and other major media resources. His mission is to ignite a transformation of the fatally flawed health care system in America, and to inspire people to take control of their health.
