Bleach Cult Performing Unsanctioned Human Experiments on Uganda Villages

June 21, 2019 // 4 Comments

At the beginning of April, I started to receive messages on Facebook from a man claiming to have proof that the industrial bleach and water purifier, chlorine dioxide (Miracle Mineral Solution – MMS), can not only cure malaria, but can do so in as little as two hours. The messages, which included a link to a now-deleted YouTube video, were sent by 25-year-old former clairvoyant, Sam Little, who ended by stating, “The truth will always win in the end!”. The video Sam sent me a link to was [...]

The Non-GMO Project EXPOSED!!!

February 24, 2019 // 5 Comments

Whether on a box of cereal, carton of eggs, or on the side of a chocolate bar, labels like “organic”, “free-range”, and “gluten free” are everywhere these days. They are, at least according to the manufacturers, there to help consumers make an informed decision when it comes to their purchases. One label that recently has seen a meteoric rise in usage is the “Non-GMO Project Verified” label, which identifies a product as not containing a genetically modified organism. At [...]

Is Atrazine Turning The Freakin’ Frogs Gay!? – #3

February 10, 2019 // 2 Comments

What do you do when you are called out on your bullshit? When someone asks to see the raw data that your dubious claims are based on? This was one of many problems facing the American biologist and professor of Integrative Biology, Tyrone Hayes, in the early 2000s. At the time, Hayes was a member of a panel of experts conducting studies for a company called Novartis (later Syngenta) on the safety of one of their herbicides, atrazine. He claimed to have found that the herbicide was negatively [...]

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. [...]

More Nonsense Published on the Young Turks Channel

May 21, 2018 // 1 Comment

Chemophobia on the Young Turks’ YouTube channel is nothing new, but recently they have outdone themselves when they uploaded a video that would not be out of place on Natural News. The video in question is called ‘Deadly Monsanto Weedkiller Discovered In Popular Beer And Wines’ and is the kind of propaganda that would make even Kim Jong-un blush. What’s worse, and should be very concerning for all Young Turk fans, is that this agrochemical hit piece is the perfect example of native [...]

Kyle Kulinski: Another Lazy YouTuber

August 23, 2017 // 1 Comment

Like the Young Turks, Kyle has found himself an inflammatory blog post, this time by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), which tells the story of an ‘escalating legal battle’ between Monsanto and the people who believe that they got cancer from exposure to glyphosate whilst spraying weeds on farms, orchards, and lawns. The blog also reports that the law firm representing these people (Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman) have emails that show ‘Monsanto’s efforts to marshal scientists in [...]

#175 – The Conceptual Penis Paper

July 29, 2017 // 0 Comments

https://theleagueofnerdsradio.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/175.mp3 Oh boy… A fake paper does not make an entire field fake. There’s no need to use fake papers to criticize any field. Any field of research has holes and tings that look ridiculous from the outside. Relying on hoaxes to try and make your point especially when those hoaxes were spotting as much makes you look a bit silly! The whole conceptual penis should also draw attention to the shitty publishing behaviors of big [...]

Will GMOs Kill Us All? – Skeptics in the Pub Talk

July 17, 2017 // 1 Comment

For decades now, we have been told by organisations like Greenpeace, GM-Freeze, and Friends of the Earth that genetical modified (GM) food is dangerous and has been shown to be harmful to humans.They have done a great job at convincing the population of their dangers by quoting scientific literature that claims GM-food has been shown, among other things, to cause cancer, leukaemia, and stomach inflammation; but is there really any truth to this? What do the papers these organisations are [...]

Five Facts Natural News Got Wrong About Aspartame

March 30, 2016 // 0 Comments

A sugar substitute is a compound that has a sweet taste like table sugar, but contains significantly less calories. There are many different varieties on the market, but the ones which get the majority of the negative attention by far are saccharin, sucralose and aspartame. Some think that these compounds are responsible for the increased cancer and autism rates in the west, whilst others believe that these compounds will flat-out kill you. The internet is ripe with interesting theories and [...]

Will Aspartame Kill You?

March 24, 2016 // 11 Comments

Edited by Peter One of the best things about being a Z-list internet skeptic is that I no longer have to go out of my way to find crazy conspiracy theories to debunk or quacks to knock down a peg. These days, I am inundated with messages from people who do all the hard work for me. Without their help I would never have discovered the Food Babe or the AIDS denialist documentary “House of Numbers” so I would like to take the time to show my appreciation by taking a request – and there [...]

December 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

The first in a series of videos fact checking some of the speakers from the March Against Monsanto protest in Nottingham. In this video, Myles discusses a speech given by Tracey Lloyd – who believes that there is independent research out there that proves the dangers of the process of genetic modification. If you would like more information on the events of that day, it was covered in a League of Nerds podcast March Against Monsanto – The League of Nerds Video based on ‘What [...]

Review of the Movie ‘GMO OMG’

October 23, 2014 // 10 Comments

Edited by Peter It has taken me over a year, but I have finally tracked down a copy of Jeremy Seifert’s 2013 anti-GMO documentary ‘GMO OMG’ and I have to say it was very disappointing. The movie was very slow and, at times, I did not know if I was watching a documentary about GMOs or some guy’s vacation footage. It’s also extremely padded with the vast majority of the film consisting of Jeremy interviewing farmers and people on the streets about their views on GMOs – most of [...]
