So I went and checked what Quackwatch "claims" about Dr. Mercola.

Oh so he was making claims someone made illegal. So some of his claims
went against prevailing opinions of the cartelized medical establishment and public health organizations. BFD! People in natural healtcare don't really consider this anything as they don't believe the protected from market sources.

Smacks of a Dr. Semmelweis situation aka cultural lag as well as running up against the big profits and monopoly of other interests who DO NOT like competition. By competition I mean the rise in alternative therapies that question some of the "established" practices.

Yet, Dr. Mercola criticizes the China Study which vegans don't agree with.

In the meantime:
Courts Slaps FDA and FTC for Unjustified Attacks
"The FDA recently sent a warning letter to Diamond Food for making truthful, science-backed health claims about the omega-3 fats in walnuts. But because the research cited health claims that omega-3 fats in walnuts may prevent or protect against disease, the FDA said walnuts would be considered 'new drugs' and as such would require a new drug application to become FDA-approved.

Also, U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) also suffered a loss in its efforts to hold Garden of Life, the marketer of various dietary supplements, in contempt of a previous consent order. ...the court ruled that the FTC had failed to prove that any of the challenged claims violated the consent order. It's a small win, but it could have major repercussions for other natural supplement makers who are being unjustly attacked by the FTC or another government agency."

As unbelievable as it sounds, current law makes it illegal for natural supplement and food producers to share accurate, science-based health information with you.[

Congressmen Jason Chaffetz (RUT) and Jared Polis (DCO) have introduced the Free Speech about Science Act (HR 1364), a landmark legislation that would allow the flow of legitimate scientific and educational information. The new bill provides a limited and carefully targeted change to FDA regulations so that manufacturers and producers may reference legitimate, peer-reviewed scientific studies without converting a natural food or dietary supplement into an "unapproved drug." ~ Dr. Mercola
I don't know if that bill passed as this was written a year ago.
