EMP pads/PEMF Snake-Oil?

The worst thing about these quack devices is that they can delay people in seeking evidence-based cancer treatments.

"The EMP pad, in my opinion, is a typical quack device – it is sold with wishy-washy structure-function claims and vague claims of dramatic health benefits. It uses sciencey jargon about resonance and magnetic fields, the appeal to nature fallacy, and irrelevant references to scientific studies that don’t even come close to establishing their claims."

MLMs and Essential Oils

Essential Oil proponents often spout miraculous claims about using these products.  Many are just anecdotes and have little to no actual evidence basis.   Check out these three videos from Genetically Modified Skeptic about this very thing

Fluoridation Toxicity Misunderstanding

table from "On Tap"

The dosage makes the poison.  One would suffer and die from water toxemia way before even scratching the toxic level of fluoride from water.  Water toxemia occurs when you drink more water than your kidneys can filter which is more than a litre/hour.  To reach a toxic level of fluoride, one would have to consume easily over 1000 glasses (250ml) per day.

Vegan a cure for Cancer?


Saw this sticker posted.  While one may be able to reduce their risk of certain types of cancer, a vegan diet by no means will cure cancer.  A good diet (whether vegan or not) is obviously important to keep a healthy immune system and to keep one's strength and energy up as they are going through proper medical treatments.  This type of advice can be very dangerous as it can cause some people to negate medical treatment.  Raw diets are not necessarily healthier.   Many plant food items are better digested (and thus more nutrients absorbed) after being cooked.
