MNT Advertising Policy

Last updated August 28th, 2017.

Medical News Today is an independent news publishing company providing our users with the latest medical and health studies and information. MNT news and information is unbiased, relevant, authoritative and trustworthy content sourced by our editorial team from credible organizations.

MNT is supported by advertising. Income from advertising allows us to invest in our employees, services and technology so that we may continue creating and delivering content to our users. There is a clear and complete separation of editorial policy and advertising – advertising has no influence on our editorial policy, processes or content. Full control of editorial policy, processes and content rests with the editorial team.

We created this advertising policy so that it is clear to our users what advertising we accept, and what is advertising and what isn’t. Advertising on MNT includes, but is not limited to: banners, links and sponsored content.
