No, a New Paper Does Not Show That Glyphosate Is Harming Honey Bees

October 11, 2018 // 0 Comments

New study published in reputable journal finds that Monsanto’s global weedkiller harms #HoneyBees. The paper ‘#Glyphosate perturbs the gut microbiota of honey bees’ reports that bees fed glyphosate at concentrations chosen to mimic environmental levels lose beneficial gut bacteria, which then leaves them vulnerable to deadly infections. Glyphosate, arguably the world’s most hated chemical which is currently being blamed for just about every ailment known to man is now facing fresh [...]

Fact Checking March Against Monsanto Protesters (FULL VIDEO)

October 6, 2018 // 0 Comments

Over the past few years, I have been attending March Against #Monsanto protests in the UK in an attempt to gain an insight into why so many people are against this one company in particular. It became apparent very early on, whilst attending these protests, that the majority of people in attendance were not there to protest against the agriculture company Monsanto, but instead to protest against #GeneticallyModifiedOrganisms (GMOs) in general. As someone who believes that GMOs have huge [...]

The “Science” Behind the Jilly Juice Protocol

September 30, 2018 // 0 Comments

The phrase, “you’re not even wrong” comes to mind when trying to explain Jillian Mac Thi Epperly’s book, ‘The Jilly Juice Protocol: Exposing the Lies Candida Weaponized Fungus Mainstreaming Mutancy’. Like Black Salve and MMS, has the real potential to not only kill someone, but to make them suffer before it [...]

The “Science” Behind the Jilly Juice Protocol

September 28, 2018 // 1 Comment

Modern medicine is better today than it has ever been yet, paradoxically, the use of complementary and alternative treatments are becoming more prevalent. It is now not uncommon here in Britain to see multiple alternative health stores on the high-street selling a plethora of products; all of which have very little, if any, evidence to prove their effectiveness. To keep up with this ever-growing demand for alternative treatments, a cottage industry has developed online that, unlike the [...]

Waco Siege Conspiracies Debunked – #2 – The Sinful Messiah and the Raid at Mount Carmel

September 23, 2018 // 0 Comments

On February 25 1993 the ATF obtained a warrant from the federal magistrate to arrest Koresh, and to search the Davidian complex and the surrounding 77 acres. The affidavit alleged unlawful possession of a destructive device and also contained discussion of alleged child abuse. Three days later, whilst the ATF were preparing to storm the complex, Rodriguez returned to Mount Carmel for one last time. He spoke to Koresh and learned that he knew about the planned execution of a warrant and that the [...]

Waco Siege Conspiracies Debunked – #2 – The Sinful Messiah and the Raid at Mount Carmel

September 19, 2018 // 0 Comments

In May 1992, the McLennan County Texas Sheriff Department provided information to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) that a religious group known as the Branch Davidians had received large shipments of firearms, inert grenades, and black powder. This was discovered after a UPS driver by the name of Larry Gilbreath accidentally opened a box containing hand grenades prior to delivery to the Mount Carmel Centre Ranch (the headquarters of the Davidians). Over the next several months, [...]

Six Degrees of Pseudoscience

September 18, 2018 // 0 Comments

Those who make a living spreading bullshit and misinformation are a very small incestuous group. What I always find fascinating is that when I find a new pseudoscience proponent to shoot down with cold, hard logic, and indisputable facts, they are always in some way connected to someone else I have previously talked about.  1 – Gilles-Éric Séralini – Author of the highly discredited paper ‘Long-term Toxicity of a Roundup Herbicide and a Roundup-Tolerant Genetically Modified [...]

Wolfgang Halbig: Former Darling of the Sandy Hook Conspiracy Movement and ‘Nobody’

August 31, 2018 // 1 Comment

Earlier in the year, I took it upon myself to fact check one of Alex’s many videos on the subject. The video I chose was titled, “FBI Says Nobody Killed at Sandy Hook Massacre” which was a 30-minute interview between Alex and the prominent Sandy Hook conspiracy theorist, Wolfgang Halbig. In the video, the two discussed what they considered to be the best evidence for a conspiracy, which can be boiled down to them misreading paperwork, misinterpreting a 2-second aerial video clip, and not [...]

Wolfgang Halbig: Former Darling of the Sandy Hook Conspiracy Movement and ‘Nobody’

August 27, 2018 // 0 Comments

On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza fatally shot his mother before murdering 20 students and six staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. He then turned the gun on himself as Newtown police officers arrived at the scene. Since then, a number of fringe figures have promoted conspiracy theories that doubt or dispute the events that took place that day – claiming, for example, that the massacre was actually orchestrated by the U.S. Government as part of an [...]

Biting the Hand That Feeds You – Those Who Oppose The Green Revolution

August 1, 2018 // 0 Comments

I started off with the intention of recording an eloquent video about those who oppose the green revolution? but it turned into more of a rant. I am lucky enough to live in a part of the world in a time where I would have to go out of my way to experience the physical sensation of hunger. It is a luxury that few in history have had, and one that I have never taken for granted, however, some do. There are people out there who view their high standard of living, where they have easy access to [...]
