More Nonsense Published on the Young Turks Channel

May 21, 2018 // 0 Comments

Chemophobia on the Young Turks’ YouTube channel is nothing new, but recently they have outdone themselves when they uploaded a video that would not be out of place on Natural News. The video in question is called ‘Deadly Monsanto Weedkiller Discovered In Popular Beer And Wines’ and is the kind of propaganda that would make even Kim Jong-un blush. What’s worse, and should be very concerning for all Young Turk fans, is that this agrochemical hit piece is the perfect example of native [...]

More Nonsense Published on the Young Turks Channel

May 15, 2018 // 1 Comment

Last year, Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian of the Young Turks published a video reporting on a class action lawsuit filed against Monsanto by people claiming the company failed to warn consumers about the risk of cancer associated with their herbicide, Roundup. As you can imagine, accurately reporting on such a controversial and emotionally charged topic requires a good understanding of the subject, however, the Turks, in their arrogance, believed they were more than qualified to cover the story [...]

Kyle Kulinski: Another Lazy YouTuber

At this very moment in time, I am sat at a bar in Dubai Airport enjoying a beer, as I wait for what seems like an eternity for my next flight to finally take me home to England. When I was last here, I received a torrent of tweets and Facebook private messages from people asking for my opinion on a recently published Young Turks video titled, ‘Monsanto Giving People Cancer?’ The video hit a nerve with me, as it was a perfect example of everything I have come to loathe about ill-informed [...]

The Young Turks are Morons of the Highest Calibre

May 30, 2017 // 7 Comments

  The Young Turks are morons of the highest calibre who believe it would be a crime not to publish every thought that tumbles through their head. I have never made my views on them public before, but what they have published recently online pushed me over the edge. They posted a video titled ‘Monsanto Giving People Cancer?’ (because protecting yourself from a lawsuit with that question mark, despite in the video saying their products are giving people cancer, shows how much of a [...]

Will Half the Children be Autistic by 2025?

January 4, 2015 // 12 Comments

Forgive me for being so crass, but the best way I can describe the obsession of the natural health community with trying to link everything they find to be ‘unnatural’ with Autism is “same shit, different day.” Every month there seems to be a new piece of research doing the rounds that apparently shows one of these links and spits in the face of scientific consensus. This month is no different. Currently, there is a blog post called “Half of All Children Will Be Autistic by 2025, [...]

Drinking Roundup Herbicide Makes Men Live Longer

By: Myles Power Edited by: Peter & Hannah In September of last year, the highly discredited paper ‘Long-term Toxicity of a Roundup Herbicide and a Roundup-Tolerant Genetically Modified Maize‘ was published in the journal ‘Food and Chemical Toxicology’. Most people have heard of this paper, as it is currently being promoted by every anti-GMO group on the planet, as it supposedly shows a link between GMOs, cancer and premature death. I have previously written about this paper and [...]

Bad science in the paper “long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize”

September 23, 2012 // 26 Comments

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah A good friend of mine recently sent me a French paper entitled, “Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize”. The paper investigated the health effects of a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize, cultivated with Roundup weed killer on rats over 2 years. The paper came to the conclusion that rats fed on the GM maize sprayed with Roundup were much more likely to die at an earlier age, in addition to [...]
