The Quacks That Wants You to Drink Hydrogen Peroxide

4 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 ...

Ozone Therapy Debunked – Part 3

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 ...

As early as the First World War it was being used to treat infected wounds, but as technology has advanced and better options have become available, coupled with the fact that ozone is quite toxic, it is no longer used for that purpose.

One of the scariest things I have ever experienced happened to me as I was running to shelter from a storm in Pennsylvania. It was the summer of 2012 and I was in the middle of a wood trying to light a campfire when, without warning, the heavens opened. Luckily for me and the people I was with, shelter was not far away and we all began to run towards it. As we did, I started to get a strange ...

A Review of Larry Cook’s Book ‘The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living’

If there was one word I could use to describe Larry Cook’s book after watching his videos on YouTube, it would be ‘dishonest’. I recently sat down to read the false-hope peddler Larry Cook’s book ‘The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living’ and it was not what I expected.
