Nine till Five Snake Oil Peddlers

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah In October last year, I wrote an article about a 78-year-old man named Allan Taylor who apparently cured his incurable cancer with a new diet. Back in 2011, Allan was told that he had colon cancer and had around 22cm of his colon removed.

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah I was recently sent a video by one of my subscribers of an interview with a man calling himself ‘Dr Bob’. In the video, Dr Bob (who from now on I am just going to just call Bob) was very critical of vaccinations. The video was full of the same old misinformed claims: that natural immunity is better than vaccine-induced immunity; that vaccinations contain the element mercury; that there might be a link between vaccinations and autism. However, [...]
