Why does Greenpeace like the watermelon?

March 21, 2017 // 0 Comments

Last year, I asked the very silly sounding question, ‘Why does Greenpeace like the grapefruit?’ As absurd as it sounds this is probably one of the most important questions to be asking the organisation right now. This is because it exposes a double standard that lies at the core of Greenpeace and shows their opposition to GMOs to be hypocritical and irrational. Today I would like to ask another silly sounding question that, once again, exposes weaknesses in Greenpeace’s arguments [...]

No, MMS did not cure 154 people in Uganda!….for a second time!

February 12, 2017 // 3 Comments

This is going to be my final blog post on the subject of the unethical “clinical trials” that took place in Uganda back in 2012. I have previously discussed how I came to find out about the “trials”, my attempt to get more information from the people involved, and how exactly they fooled people into thinking MMS can cure malaria. In this final blog, I would like to talk more about what physically happened in these “trials” and how the tests they performed still do not prove that [...]

A Review of Dr. Judy Wood’s Book “Where Did The Towers Go?” – Where Did The Buildings Go?

February 4, 2017 // 3 Comments

It has been well over a year since I sat down and tried to wrap my head around another chapter of Dr Judy Wood’s copyright infringing magnum opus ‘Where did The Towers Go’. In the past, I have written about her misinterpretation of the seismic data collected by Columbia University, how her disrobing ray beam makes no sense and that “dustification” is not a thing. The chapters I have covered so far have been interesting, if not a little inappropriate, like when she found it [...]

How a Video Manipulated You into Thinking MMS Can Cure Malaria

January 30, 2017 // 3 Comments

As many of you will know, over the past month I have been investigating a video of a pseudo-clinical trial held in Uganda that claimed to show 154 people being cured of malaria by MMS. My time has mostly been spent trying to contact the people and organisations involved to obtain more information, and nearly all have not returned my emails. This includes the Ugandan Red Cross and The Water Reference Centre, who both feature heavily in the video. I was also able to identify some of the European [...]

Klaas Proesmans Responds to My Email

January 27, 2017 // 6 Comments

Over the past month, I have been investigating a video of a pseudo-clinical trial held in Uganda investigating MMS’ ability to cure malaria. The video is called “LEAKED Proof the Red Cross Cured 154 Malaria Cases with MMS” and starred Klaas Proesmans, the CEO of the Water Reference Centre, and Leo Koehof, who is said to be the “author and publisher on health related topics” in the blurb. The video was shown to me as proof of MMS’ miraculous properties by a man trying to circumvent [...]

MMS Uganda Update

January 21, 2017 // 6 Comments

Last week I wrote a blogpost documenting my interaction with a man trying to circumvent eBay rules by contacting me directly in order to sell me Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), an industrial bleach that is currently being marketed online as a panacea. What made this interaction more disturbing was that, when I asked for evidence of MMS’ miraculous properties, I was given a link to a video of an alleged clinical trial in Uganda investigating MMS’ ability to cure malaria. The video stars [...]

Anti-GMO Book for Children

January 18, 2017 // 2 Comments

Dewi and the Seeds of Doom is the perfect book for indoctrinating your children into an anti-GMO conspiracy whilst at the same time promoting a bit of welsh pride. Last year I wrote a blog post heavily criticising what I consider to be one of the vilest books ever conceived. Stephanie Messenger’s ‘Melanie’s Marvelous Measles’ is a book aimed towards young children that attempts to convince them that vaccines are ineffective and, rather worryingly, to actively try and contract measles. [...]

The Email That Opened a Can of Worms

January 11, 2017 // 12 Comments

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. When mixed with a weak acid, it generates chlorine dioxide – an industrial bleach and water purifier. When ingested even in relatively small amounts it can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea – whereas larger doses cause renal failure, hemolysis (a rupturing of the red blood cells), and even death. [...]

The Wonder of Creation

January 5, 2017 // 0 Comments

Last year I attended QED, a three-day scepticism and pop-science conference held in Manchester. There I saw some truly entertaining and thought-provoking talks given by people who are on the front line of science and scepticism outreach. Whilst the conference was in full swing, I began to hear rumours that some in attendance had been handed creationism pamphlets by a small group of people standing outside the main entrance. Creationism is the idea that the universe and life originated from [...]

Homeopathic Toothpaste?

December 17, 2016 // 4 Comments

I am the proud owner of a rather unusual collection of weird and wonderful examples of pseudoscientific products. These range from the ridiculous like my kitty chakra healing set to the flat out dangerous like my copy of Christine Maggiore’s ‘What If Everything You Thought You Knew About AIDS Was Wrong’. 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 [...]
