Laetrile (B17) – The Quack Cancer Cure That Will Give You Cyanide Poisoning

March 24, 2019 // 1 Comment

This blog post and subsequent video is based on ‘The Rise and Fall of Laetrile’ on QuackWatch.org.  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 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. Whilst most of these quack stores offer [...]

Trying Medical Quackery Sold on Amazon

January 31, 2019 // 1 Comment

I am the proud owner of a rather unusual collection of weird and wonderful examples of pseudoscientific products. Although I am sure most of you think that I am wasting my money on this bad-science-personified, the truth is I get an enormous sense of enjoyment from trying to understand the creator’s point of view and outlook on life. My collection ranges from the ridiculous, like my kitty chakra healing set, to the flat-out dangerous, like my copy of ‘The Case Against Condoms’ and [...]

Debunking the AIDS Denialist Movie House of Numbers – FULL VIDEO

January 6, 2019 // 1 Comment

In 2009 Canadian-born director and producer, Brent Leung, released the film ‘House of Numbers’. The documentary consists of interviews with scientists and AIDS denialists discussing the link between HIV and AIDS, the severity of AIDS in South Africa and, unbelievably, whether or not HIV exists at all. Brent claims that the documentary gives an “objective examination of the idea the HIV causes AIDS” but nothing could be further from the truth in this sneakily edited piece of propaganda. [...]

The Quacks That Wants You to Drink Hydrogen Peroxide

December 29, 2018 // 1 Comment

Pseudoscience is everywhere – on daytime television, on nearly every organic food label, and, most of all, online. Here, due to the lack of any real legal consequences, quackery is rampant and showing no sign of slowing down or going back to the dark ages where it belongs. The industry is becoming so massive and lucrative that it is spawning its own cottage industry made from its own victims. These once duped chumps have now become the self-proclaimed health experts and they seem to be [...]

The Quack That Wants You to Drink Paint Stripper

October 30, 2018 // 1 Comment

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 [...]

The “Science” Behind the Jilly Juice Protocol

September 30, 2018 // 2 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 // 6 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 [...]

Witches Market in La Paz, Bolivia – the perfect place to go to buy spells, magical potions, and a LOT of dead dried llama fetus’. The women who sell their wares here, wearing black hats and coca pouches, are witch doctors known as Yatiri – revered I mar ra Aymara witch doctors who call upon the power of the sacred coca leaf to gain insights into another [...]

Ozone Therapy Debunked – Part 3

November 24, 2017 // 0 Comments

It’s been quite some time since I last sat down and wrote a blog post on the subject of ozone therapy – an alternative treatment (aka something that has not been proven to work) in which proponents recommend exposing yourself to relatively large concentrations of this toxic gas. Those who recommend it believe that ozone has the ability to cure, amongst other things, cancer, AIDS, and multiple sclerosis – despite the fact there is no credible, peer reviewed evidence to support the use of [...]

CBS Publishes a Video That Implied I Was Promoting MMS

October 26, 2017 // 1 Comment

ver the past two years, I have been producing content online warning people about the dangers of MMS and exposing these charlatans for the quacks they are. Recently, I investigated a pseudo-clinical trial that took place in Uganda, which apparently showed 154 people being cured of malaria using MMS. I showed, using their own footage, how they designed an experiment to get the results they wanted, and how there is no evidence for MMS’ magical properties. So, you can imagine my surprise when I [...]

CBS Publishes a Video That Implied I Was Promoting MMS

October 16, 2017 // 0 Comments

Miracle Mineral Supplement/Solution (MMS) is a 28% sodium chlorite solution in distilled water currently being sold online as a cure-all tonic. Once “activated” by an acidic solution, like citric acid, it generates chlorine dioxide – a powerful disinfectant that has been used in the past as a water purifier. Jim Humble, the man who coined the name and who is also the self-styled Archbishop of his own church (Genesis II), claims to have cured thousands of people using MMS of our most [...]

Exposed: Fake Ugandan Red Cross Medical Trial That Fed People Bleach

October 8, 2017 // 3 Comments

Stitched together full documentary exposing the unethical “clinical trials” that took place in Uganda back in 2012. In this video I show you how those involved designed an experiment to fool people into thinking you can cure malaria by drinking bleach. What was once known as Miracle Mineral Supplement, but for legal reasons had to change its name to Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), is a 28% sodium chlorite solution in distilled water currently being sold online as a cure-all tonic. Jim [...]
