Tell us what you think instead of posting a link to your video in order to garner click points.

At least use the yt tags so we can get a glimmer of what's in it.
Here is Mike Adams at the Encyclopedia of American Loons. Their very first entry ever!
And here he is at Rational Wiki. Starting with an excellent quote from David Gorski:
Quote:
I still don't know whether Adams really and truly believes in the nonsense he promotes. I really don't and still can't tell. For example, did Adams relocate to Ecuador because he really believes in the "natural" lifestyle or did he do it to escape those pesky laws in the U.S. that frown on selling unproven remedies?[note 1] I do know, however, that Adams appears to have an utter contempt for his own readers, as evidenced by his repeating outrageous straw men such as the claim that SBM says that susceptibility to disease is totally random and that there's nothing anyone can do about it and bizarre falsehoods like his claim in the Vaccine Zombie video above that vaccines can make your testicles fall off.

He used to be a regular on Infowars.

And he certainly has killed people with his scam advise.

Also, evidence?

I don't follow these mooks so his name meant nothing... but you could have just led with that he runs Natural News.

Mike Adams is the alt-med precursor to Mike "Pillow" Lindell. They are equally whacko and out of touch with reality. But at least Adams shifted his worthless ass to Ecuador, rather than staying in the USA to have said ass sued off him daily.
