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 // 3 Comments

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 “Science” Behind the Jilly Juice Protocol

September 30, 2018 // 3 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 Anarchists Cook Book – Chapter One: Drugs – Myles Reviews

September 28, 2017 // 1 Comment

When I was growing up, I remember hearing stories of a book that contained information so dangerous and controversial that to own a copy, even an electronic one, could get you in trouble with the authorities. This was because the book contained a set of instructions on how to, amongst other things, construct explosive devices and synthesise illegal narcotics. This infamous book, which has now sold more than 2 million copies, has been linked to countless acts of violence around the world [...]

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

March 22, 2017 // 7 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 all of the chapters I have covered so far some effort was made to make her theory on how the towers collapsed convincing, which cannot be said for chapters 9 ‘Where Did The Buildings Go?’ and chapter 10 ‘Holes’. Virtually everything said in this section of the book can be debunked with a few Google searches [...]

Anti-GMO Book for Children – Myles Reviews

January 19, 2017 // 0 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. At first glance, this book is a little on the boring side, but when you step back and think about what the author, Maggie Lyons, is trying to convey, who the caricatures represent, and what action she is actually promoting, it becomes something very different. The book is essentially the views of one woman on the GMO industry and [...]

December 22, 2016 // 1 Comment

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 [...]

The Waters of Life – Myles Reviews

November 19, 2016 // 0 Comments

A few months ago when I was visiting the walled city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand, I came across a treasure trove of quackery. I had stumbled across a bookshop that happened to have the finest selection of woo I had ever seen. One of the books from this store I talked about previously was Cosmic Cleaning which is an instruction guide for cleaning the “nine opens of the body”. A lot of these techniques for cleaning your various openings involved either dousing yourself in generous [...]

October 21, 2016 // 0 Comments

Cosmic Cleansing is is a set of instructions and techniques that will “cleanse the nine opens of the body giving you health, vitality, and longevity” which is exactly what it sounds like. What makes it even worse is that there are multiple photographs of one of the authors Mantak Chia throughout the book preforming the techniques recommended which leave nothing to the imagination. The book heavily promotes several popular alternative treatments including the rather dangers procedure of ear [...]

July 7, 2016 // 0 Comments

As many will know, I am on a never-ending quest to find something to cure my increasingly violent hangovers and Sea-Band sounded perfect. This is because it claims to provide “effective drug-free relief from many forms of nausea including travel, motion, and morning sickness. The product itself consists of two thin sweat bands with a plastic nub on the inside that puts pressure on your wrists – specifically on the P6 (Nei-Kuan) acupressure points. According to their website “illness [...]
