Capitalising on Corona – Colloidal Silver – #4

May 30, 2020 // 1 Comment

Whenever there’s a heightened sense of fear and hysteria, scammers come out of the woodwork to both amplify and capitalise on the general public’s growing unrest. In recent months I’m sure you, like me, have seen examples of price gouging, fake charities, medical scams, and unhinged conspiracy theories regarding the origin of SARS-CoV-2. Governments, journalists, scientists et al have done their best to protect the public, but found themselves playing a thankless global game of [...]

Capitalising on Corona – MMS and the Bleach Cult – #3

April 29, 2020 // 4 Comments

Welcome to the third instalment of Capitalising on Corona, the series in which I point a spotlight on the disinformation distributers who have been exploiting the current pandemic to push their agenda and sell their snake-oil. I can imagine a few of you reading this will be thinking to yourself, “What happened to the second instalment?” Unfortunately, a copyright claim was filed against it by London Real, a company whose slogan is ironically, “Fighting for Free Speech Since 2011”. The [...]

Capitalising on Corona – David Icke and 5G Conspiracies – #2

April 19, 2020 // 8 Comments

Welcome to the second instalment of Capitalising on Corona, the series in which I expose the parasitic profiteers who are using the ongoing pandemic to push their agenda and sell their snake-oil. With a quarter of the world’s population currently in lockdown, time has never been better for these frauds, as they desperately try to shoehorn their particular flavour of conspiracy and quackery into the current crisis. Some, like Vandana Shiva (who I covered in my last instalment), are master [...]

Capitalising on Corona – Vandana Shiva – #1

March 31, 2020 // 8 Comments

In recent months, quacks and charlatans of all kinds have been rubbing their hands with glee, as a novel coronavirus – which at this moment in time has no vaccine or specific treatment – brings the world to its knees. In an attempt to capitalise on this pandemic, these self-proclaimed experts both rely on, and amplify, the general public’s growing angst, whilst simultaneously shoehorning in their particular flavour of conspiracy and quackery. The spread of misinformation and [...]

No, the Coronavirus Was Not Bioengineered

February 27, 2020 // 1 Comment

As I’m sure most of you are aware, there is an ongoing outbreak of a novel coronavirus causing something of a panic around the world. At the time of writing, it’s been eight weeks since Chinese health authorities first reported a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province and major transport hub of central China. The earliest human infections are believed to have occurred by early December 2019, and a large meat market was linked to most – but not all – of the [...]

The Chiropractors Who Kill

January 27, 2020 // 2 Comments

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s quackery of the purest kind, which unbeknownst to the general public is frequently associated with mild to moderate adverse effects. These include headaches, increased neck pain or stiffness, fatigue, dizziness or imbalance, extremity weakness, tinnitus, depression, anxiety, nausea and vomiting, blurred vision, and confusion, to name a few. Although serious and fatal complications are rare, they do still occur. [...]

Chiropractic Quacks Pretending to be Medical Doctors

January 5, 2020 // 3 Comments

Chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s quackery of the purest kind, yet its proponents would have you believe that chiropractors are part of the medical community and thus have the authority to give out medical advice. In reality, they are not; they are people who have wasted a large portion of their life studying either the ramblings of a quack and his spooky ghost friend, or a technique of pain management, which, time and time again, has been shown to be ineffective. Either way, studying [...]

The Secret that “Dr” Joseph Cipriano Doesn’t Want You to Know

December 23, 2019 // 11 Comments

A lot of people don’t know this, but chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s pure hocus pocus, that at its very best is a technique of pain management that time and time again, it’s been shown to be ineffective, with most credible research putting it on a par with a good massage. Its origins are in the ramblings of a literal snake-oil-salesman, who convinced people that his spooky ghost friend told him that manual therapy, especially spinal manipulation therapy, restores your body’s [...]

My Woo Collection

Full disclosure Merck, a science and technology company, have been kind enough to sponsor this blog post and therefore are enabling my (some might say…) unhealthy obsession with quackery and the bizarre. Just to give you a bit of background, Merck have created a Curiosity Initiative to make us more curious and promote innovation and progress. As part of this Curiosity Initiative Merck have developed a Curious Elements’ program which explores different ways in which people interact with and [...]

Chiropractic: Quackery Hiding in Plain Sight

August 6, 2019 // 9 Comments

Chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s quackery of the purest kind dreamt up by a snake-oil salesman who claimed he was told from beyond the grave that manual therapy, especially spinal manipulation therapy, restores your body’s “innate intelligence”, curing all of your ailments. There is no scientific evidence that it can restore or maintain health, and only lukewarm evidence that it can help with lower back pain, with most credible research putting it on par with a [...]

American Pastor, Robert Baldwin, Conned up to 50,000 Ugandans into Drinking Bleach by Telling Them It Was a “Gift from God”

June 27, 2019 // 4 Comments

A new series of bogus medical trials, in which desperate Ugandans were fed an industrial bleach by cultists after being told it was a “gift from God”, has been exposed, due in part to one of the organisers. Sam Little from Arlesey in Bedfordshire, who partially funded this new series of human experiments, gloated about what he had done online in the hopes of getting the same admiration as his counterparts. On questioning, Sam revealed the name of the man in charge; an American Pastor by the [...]

Media Attention Causes Woo-Pushers to Hide Their Shame!

June 24, 2019 // 2 Comments

Recently, several newspapers ran stories about the trials carried out in Ugandan villages using the bleach, MMS, to ‘cure’ malaria. This media attention caused the Ugandan government to take notice of the situation, as well as those responsible trying to hide the evidence of their crimes. This included deleting all evidence from Facebook accounts. Luckily, I just so happened to take copies before they did!   Here are high resolution screenshots of the pictures contained in the Facebook [...]

Bleach Cult Performing Unsanctioned Human Experiments on Uganda Villages

June 16, 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 [...]

A Brief History of MMS

May 20, 2019 // 14 Comments

American pastor, Robert Baldwin, financially backed by British former clairvoyant, Sam Little, is running a network that has given up to 50,000 Ugandans a “miracle cure” sent directly from God. The panacea in question is made from an industrial bleach used in the textile industry, known as chlorine dioxide, but is marketed in the extreme alternative health world as ‘Miracle Mineral Solution’ (MMS). Baldwin, however, out of fear of legal ramifications, calls the toxic fluid [...]

YouTube Remove Man Who Wanted Sick People to Drink Paint Thinner

April 28, 2019 // 6 Comments

Candida and parasite elimination specialist, Danny Glass, has been telling people for years on YouTube how to remove parasites from their system. Ironically, YouTube has done just that, as they have removed him from their platform for violating terms of service.  Danny, who is currently living in Thailand, offers “health coaching” services under the name Sun Fruit Dan.  Before YouTube deleted him from their platform, he had uploaded over 1,300 videos, in which he would promote dangerous [...]
