The Quack 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 ...

Bolivia’s Salt Flats (Salar de Uyuni) – Myles Away from Home

1 Comment

Watching the sunset over the Bolivian Salt Flats (Salar de Uyuni). I remember being totally awestruck and taken back by this almost perfect mirror. Salar de Uyuni (or Salar de Tunupa) is the world’s largest salt flat, at 10,582 square kilometers (4,086 sq mi). It is in the Daniel Campos Province in Potosí in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes and is at an elevation of 3,656 ...

Is Atrazine Turning The Freakin’ Frogs Gay!? – #2

As I said in my previous blog post, the story of the gay frogs, at its core, is the story of how lazy journalists helped charlatans to become victims so that they can circumvent the scientific method and directly scare the public. It’s a story that started with the publication of research that showed a herbicide negatively affected amphibian development, and ended with sexually explicit and ...

The story of how atrazine became so hated by the general public and demonised by the media is a bizarre and almost unbelievable one. The story started with the publication of research that showed the compound negatively affected amphibian development, and ended with sexually explicit and harassing emails, withheld research, unrepeatable results, conspiracy to shut up scientists by a large ...

Online, I have developed a reputation for defending the defenceless, protecting the disenfranchised corporations that have been abandoned by their very own consumers: the synthetic pesticide producers, the large pharmaceutical companies, and the artificial food additive conglomerates. As you can imagine, this has led a lot of people to believe that I am a shill, because why else would I be ...

The Quack That Wants You to Drink Paint Stripper

The phrase, “snake-oil salesmen”, conjures up images of seedy moustache-twirling profiteers, exploiting an unsuspecting public with their cure-all elixirs. A relic of the past, when modern medicine was still in its infancy, and there was very little in the way of regulations to stop them. The truth, however, is that these con artists are still here to this day peddling the same bogus quackery ...

New study published in reputable journal finds that Monsanto’s global weedkiller harms #HoneyBees. The paper ‘#Glyphosate perturbs the gut microbiota of honey bees’ reports that bees fed glyphosate at concentrations chosen to mimic environmental levels lose beneficial gut bacteria, which then leaves them vulnerable to deadly infections. Glyphosate, arguably the world’s most hated chemical ...

Fact Checking March Against Monsanto Protesters (FULL VIDEO)

Over the past few years, I have been attending March Against #Monsanto protests in the UK in an attempt to gain an insight into why so many people are against this one company in particular. It became apparent very early on, whilst attending these protests, that the majority of people in attendance were not there to protest against the agriculture company Monsanto, but instead to protest against ...
