Is Atrazine Turning The Freakin’ Frogs Gay!? – #2

December 10, 2018 // 0 Comments

As I said in my previous blog post, the story of the gay frogs, at its core, is the story of how lazy journalists helped charlatans to become victims so that they can circumvent the scientific method and directly scare the public. It’s a story that started with the publication of research that showed a herbicide negatively affected amphibian development, and ended with sexually explicit and harassing emails, withheld research, unrepeatable results, and outlandish conspiracies. It’s the [...]

Is Atrazine Turning The Freakin’ Frogs Gay?! – #1

The story of how atrazine became so hated by the general public and demonised by the media is a bizarre and almost unbelievable one. The story started with the publication of research that showed the compound negatively affected amphibian development, and ended with sexually explicit and harassing emails, withheld research, unrepeatable results, conspiracy to shut up scientists by a large multinational, accusations of a company knowingly selling a carcinogen because they also sell the cure, and [...]

Is Atrazine Turning The Freakin’ Frogs Gay?! – #1

November 25, 2018 // 1 Comment

Online, I have developed a reputation for defending the defenceless, protecting the disenfranchised corporations that have been abandoned by their very own consumers: the synthetic pesticide producers, the large pharmaceutical companies, and the artificial food additive conglomerates. As you can imagine, this has led a lot of people to believe that I am a shill, because why else would I be defending these companies and compounds? These people often take to my comments section, where they spam [...]

Waco Siege Conspiracies Debunked – #3 – Helicopter Gunfire

November 17, 2018 // 1 Comment

During the investigation of the Branch Davidians and the subsequent failed raid on the Mount Carmel Center (the Davidians’ headquarters), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) obtained assistance from the military. This support included the use of training facilities and equipment, advice concerning ATF’s medical and communications plans, aerial reconnaissance, and the use of #Helicopters during the raid. The ATF was able to get this support from the military due, in part, to [...]

The Quack That Wants You to Drink Paint Stripper

October 30, 2018 // 0 Comments

The phrase, “snake-oil salesmen”, conjures up images of seedy moustache-twirling profiteers, exploiting an unsuspecting public with their cure-all elixirs. A relic of the past, when modern medicine was still in its infancy, and there was very little in the way of regulations to stop them. The truth, however, is that these con artists are still here to this day peddling the same bogus quackery to the same vulnerable people. The only difference now is that instead of spouting their dubious [...]

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 // 1 Comment

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 // 4 Comments

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, [...]
