It looks as though Alex Jones may be making a more direct contribution to dumbing down the masses than previously thought. As most of you are aware, the guy known for memorable lines like, "I don't like em putting chemicals in the water that turn the friggin' frogs gay," peddles more than dubious conspiracy theories — he hawks merch — including his own line of supplements.
Ironically for a man who promotes claims about all the nasty things "they're" putting in the water and the dangers of trace heavy metals in vaccines, it appears that some of his own products contain high levels of lead.
Is Alex Jones Peddling Lead-Tainted, Sperm-Killing Products? Toxic Heavy Metal Found in Two Infowars Supplements
But not all of Jones’s offerings are quite as harmless as essential oils or arabica beans. In fact, new research commissioned by the Center for Environmental Health (CEH) has determined that two products sold by Jones contain potentially dangerous levels of the heavy metal lead, which is universally known to be harmful to the body.
“The chemical was found in the Infowars Caveman Paleo Formula and the Info Wars Myco-ZX supplements. People who take the daily recommended dose of the Formula product would ingest more than twice the daily limit for lead under California law. People who take the Myco-ZX product would ingest more than six times the daily limit for lead under California law,” a CEH release said.
CEH has announced that it has filed “legal notice” against Infowars for violation of California’s law governing public exposure to toxic chemicals. That law, passed in 1986, is known as Proposition 65. It “requires businesses to notify Californians about significant amounts of chemicals in the products they purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment,” according to the state’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment. OEHHA lists lead as potentially causing cancer, developmental toxicity, male reproductive toxicity and female reproductive toxicity.

While that may be true, I'd still like to know why conspiracy sites, are selling users health crap?
On what grounds would I trust their medical opinion, and not to mention, where is the tie in? Why Supplements?
Even the prepper food storage crap C2C peddles is more inline than the supplements it and infowars peddles...
Money grubbing is one thing I understand business needs to gain revenue, but why is it supplements?
No one is a Doctor I'd like operate, or touch me, so why would I trust what they say about these little mystery objects?

Mainstream media wants you to discard and think of alternative news as fake. ATS likely has more views than CNN.com
And produces just as much garbage as the rest of the media.

The Democrats only wish they had loyal followers like Trump.

The supplement industry is probably the largest, basically unregulated industry in the US and maybe the world. From being the source of performance enhancing drugs (anabolics) to psychedelics, to uppers, downers, etc, and then the nutrient supplements, This is a HUGE grey market for a whole host of chemicals that could cause serious harm to the user.
I'm wondering how much the supplement industry contributes to congress yearly.
