The Great British Charity Swindle

0 Comments

The British government has recently been investigating the public benefit provided by charities offering complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). They have stated that to remain qualified for charitable status, an organisation must provide evidence that the therapy being offered is capable of delivering the claimed benefits. In the case of Gerson Support Group (GSG), the organisation’s own ...

The Gerson Therapy Scam

1 Comment

By far Gerson Therapy is the most difficult of the alternative cancer treatments and I believe that is by design. The draconian rules are designed to extract as much money as possible from dying people by conning them into buying expensive pointless equipment or spending their life savings visiting an elaborate smoothie bar in Mexico. It is designed to give fraudulent data regarding their success ...

The Gerson Therapy Scam

1 Comment

Gerson Therapy is a scam! It is a dietary-based alternative cancer treatment whose proponents erroneously believe that cancer is a symptom of a disease and not disease itself. The therapy, which has been shown to be both ineffective and dangerous, is based on the belief that disease is caused by the accumulation of unspecified toxins and that hourly glasses of organic juice along with various ...

Prince Charles is a threat to the health of the nation

3 Comments

Whilst is easy to dismiss Prince Charles as a lingering relic of an archaic hierarchical class structure with no real clout other than being a talking head for people who fear a technology they don’t understand, the truth is that for decades he has exploited his privileged position to attempt to influence Government policy and nowhere is this more apparent than his promotion of alternative ...

Prince Charles is a threat to the health of the nation

4 Comments

Britain is famous for many things – fish and chips, grey and gloomy weather, our previous penchant for colonialism, and of course the Royal Family with Queen Elizabeth II ruling over us since taking the throne in 1953. The political system here is a little confusing as we have a ‘constitutional monarchy’, where the supreme power held by the monarch is largely ceremonial with actual ...

Debunking Holocaust Denial – The Fred Leuchter Report – #4

1 Comment

I found myself asking the question at what point does someone become a con man? Was it when he deliberately misrepresented himself as a professional engineer, when he sold faulty execution equipment which would cause a nightmarish death, or was it when he convinced holocaust deniers that he was an expert on gas execution? As strange as it sounds, I believe that Holocaust deniers like Zündel are ...

Debunking Holocaust Denial – The Fred Leuchter Report – #3

0 Comments

Recently Leuchter appeared back on Rizoli’s internet show where he attempted to counter some of the claims I made against him. Now I realise that this point I am beating a dead horse with a fish I just shot in a barrel but I find their brand of denial so distasteful and bizarre that I can’t stop poking these geriatrics with a stick and watch them ...

Debunking Holocaust Denial – The Fred Leuchter Report – #3

14 Comments

One thing I have always found revealing about those online who like to cosplay as Nazis, but who in reality would be seen as untermensch by their peers is their tendencies to flirt with legal action against those who have publicly embarrassed them. Mike Enoch, Jesse Dunstan, and Alex McNabb of the TDS (formally The Daily Shoah) podcast told their audience that they were investigating legal action ...

5 Cancelled Projects

Sometimes things don’t go to plan. Projects that sound like they are going to be fun and entertaining turn out to be dull as dishwater. Here are 5 projects I have cancelled over the years and explanations ...

Debunking Holocaust Denial – The Fred Leuchter Report – #2

10 Comments

Fred Leuchter is an American manufacturer of execution equipment and prominent Holocaust denier who is best known as the author of the Leuchter report, a pseudoscientific document that alleges there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau. To reach this conclusion, Leuchter tested for cyanide residue using a type of analysis which was not appropriate for producing accurate results on samples ...

“Dr” Joseph Cipriano’s Y-Strap is Dangerous

3 Comments

Dr Joseph Cipriano is a chiropractor based in Greenville, South Carolina, who in recent years has become somewhat of a minor celebrity after uploading videos of himself to YouTube using a device called a Y-Strap, coining the nickname ‘The Y-Strap Doc.’ Before I start, it’s important to understand the reasoning for why chiropractic is suddenly everywhere. In these modern times where we hunch ...

Once again Merck, a science and technology company, has been kind enough to sponsor one of my blog post, which like before gives me the freedom to talk about something a little bit off the beaten track. Being a YouTuber and bit of a beard it will come as no surprise that I have a rather impressive wifi hub network installed in my house. This network allows me to effortlessly transfer large ...

I am not going to tell you that you should get the new Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine because it is not my place. Only you can make that decision for yourself and a loved one in your care. However what I can do is explain how the vaccine works and counter some of the prevalent misinformation out there so you can make a more informed ...
