Facebook just announced that it tossed off screwball Mike Adams for "violating our policies against spam [and] us[ing] misleading or inaccurate information to collect likes, followers, or shares."
Here is the headline that did the trick:
“LGBT progressivism horrors: Parents to start physically maiming their own babies to slice off all ‘gender’ organs in the name of progressivism and ‘equality.’
I hate to break it to Facebook, but, although it was Adams' "right-wing conspiracy theories" that supposedly got him banned, he should have been given the hook long ago, and not for his political
beliefs delusions. Adams' rants and raves about political and historical matters, even though they are ghastly, make him sound like Doris Kearns Goodwin compared to what he says about health and science.
If you have a strong stomach, a good sense of humor, and could use a few yuks I suggest you try Natural News, the site run by Adams. Adams refers to himself as "The Health Ranger." We at ACSH prefer the more accurate "Health Stranger." Needless to say, there is not a lot of love lost between us.
For example, Mike doesn't care for our ethics or business practices. (1)
And the feeling is mutual.
Mike is a big fan (surprise) of homeopathy. He also believes that we are swimming in chemicals that are doing all kinds of nasty things to us, like feminizing men...
"Are endocrine disruptors the reason boys are being feminized?"
Since we scientists are naturally inquisitive, how could I help but wonder what would happen if Adams subjected himself to his own brand of "science." Let's say he jumped in a pool with a super low concentration of some alleged feminizing chemical. Since all homeopaths know that chemicals get more potent as the solution they are dissolved in becomes more dilute isn't it reasonable that the following would transpire if Adams jumped in a pool containing one molecule of BPA?
See It's World Homeopathy Week! All 8 Days Of It, where you also be rewarded by watching as Andrew Weil is turned into a Pez dispenser.
For those of you who don't follow The Health Stranger and don't have the intestinal fortitude to go to Natural News, here is a very small sampling of what you will find.
- "CONFIRMED: Cancer is entirely a man-made disease"
- "Alkaline Water Kills Cancer – This Is How To Prepare It"
- "Florida now following California in forcing toxic, deadly vaccines onto millions."
- Cranberry extract prevents Alzheimer’s
- "HIV transmission MYTH totally blown away by new science: Unprotected sex with HIV-infected partners produces almost ZERO new infections"
- Bee venom kills HIV cells
If Facebook doesn't care for inaccurate information can someone please explain why for years it has been allowing Adams to say that cancer doesn't occur naturally (but if you get it basic water will cure it if you get it), vaccines are deadly, cranberries prevent Alzheimer's, HIV can't be sexually transmitted sexually, and bee venom kills HIV cells, which is especially intriguing since HIV is a virus, not a cell.
Sorry, Facebook. I don't buy it. You didn't give Adams the heave-ho because of inaccurate information; it was done because he wrote something even more offensive than usual. Facebook just wanted to save face.
(1) All of this is wrong. So what? So is just about everything else on Natural News.
