The 10 Worst Health HOAXES Pushed As ‘Science’ Over the Last 100 Years

When a trend goes viral, millions of Americans “board that train” without giving it a second thought; however, come to find out, most of these massively popular trends aren’t trends at all, but rather propaganda-led health Ponzi schemes that have led millions of “sheeple” (people who act like ignorant sheep) off their own health cliff. 

Long before the internet, and even before television, science demons (evil humans in white lab coats) were hard at work inventing ways to slowly poison Americans with chemical-based food and chemical-laced medicine, and they needed marketing experts to fool the public with catchy tag lines and slogans that could be plastered all over print media.

Anything that sounds well-researched and is broadcast through thousands of advertised media outlets catches on eventually, and no matter how sick and demented the lie, after enough marketing and advertising, the masses buy in.

That’s called cognitive dissonance – something irritates your brain just enough to peek your interest, and then you investigate a little, see “everyone else” doing it, and you hop aboard that trendy train.

From bad food science to bad medicine science, it all boils down to bad choices and bad health, and there are no bigger money-making machines in America than those run by Big Food and Big Pharma.

Let’s dig right in by dialing it all back a whole century, when the evil plotting first began in the land of toxic processed food and chronic sick care.

Beware of the 10 worst health HOAXES pushed as “science” over the last 100 years

LIE #1. If a health study is “peer reviewed,” then it is evidence-based, reliable and true.
Did you know that as much as 90% of the published medical information that doctors rely on is completely wrong?

It’s true.

Many science “studies” and research have predetermined outcomes and results that are scripted first by the companies and corporations that will profit from the product, then, after that, the tests are “run” by shill scientists who twist, distort or even discard the findings that don’t fit the scripted conclusion.

Then big bucks trade hands and the findings are published in quack journals like JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association). This has been going on for a century.

LIE #2. If a food additive, prescription drug or immunization is approved by the FDA or the CDC, then scientists have tested it thoroughly for “safety and efficacy” and you should consume it without question. 

The CDC and FDA are businesses that function for profit at the health expense of Americans. Never rely on anything approved by these rogue “regulatory” agencies that are in the business of chronic sick care, and have been since their inception.

Ask your naturopathic doctor for advice about food and medicine that’s “approved” by the FDA or CDC.

LIE #3. Cigarettes are good for digestion and recommended by more than 20,000 doctors in America. 

Yes, they did do that. Doctors advertised their favorite brands and lied to Americans for decades after science had proven cigarette smoke causes lung cancer.

LIE #4. The Polio vaccine is a miraculous invention that eradicated the polio pandemic that was sweeping the world. 

The infamous Dr. Salk did not invent a vaccine that prevented polio, but rather he mixed several strains of polio [i.e. he actually CREATED new polio strands] and helped spread the disease around the world.

The hoax worked because statistics were skewed to show that any polio cases that didn’t cripple the victim were labeled as meningitis, therefore “proving” the vaccine nearly wiped out polio around the world!

That’s how 200 million Americans have been brainwashed into believing today’s vaccines are “safe and effective.”

LIE #5. Artificial sweeteners contain no calories, so they help you lose weight. 

Fake sugars are hundreds of times sweeter than sucrose, fooling your body into ingesting them and making you crave sugar even more. So much for self control.

LIE #6. Any “high” cholesterol is bad cholesterol and so you should ask your doctor about a medication to lower yours. 


Conversely, according to a highly informative article published in Metabolic Healing, “Efforts to reduce the body’s production of cholesterol and its adjacent lipoproteins, whether through medical intervention, or through nutritional intervention, may have very serious repercussions for one’s health.”

LIE #7. All saturated fat is unhealthy and causes cardiovascular disease. 

The conspiracy against saturated fat has been completely debunked.

LIE #8. Milk – it does a body good. 

Most processed (homogenized / pasteurized) dairy products cause inflammation and excess mucus production. Look it up.

LIE #9. GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are drought resistant, safe for human consumption, increase yield for farmers and are totally sustainable. 

GMO means that toxic pesticides have been infused into the genes of crops, and many farmers who plant GMOs are finding they have to use much more pesticide to control the bugs and weeds now.

LIE #10. Chemotherapy is your best chance and may be your only chance at surviving cancer. Chemotherapy yields a miserable 2.3% average success rate

Chemotherapy destroys your immune system – the one thing that helps you survive cancer. Go figure.

Conclusion: When you hear a health slogan on television, see it printed in the newspaper, or some politician keeps harping on it over and over, you can be 99.9% sure it’s a health hoax designed and propagated to steal your money and your peace of mind.

Side effects of health hoaxes include cancer, Alzheimer’s and loss of critical thinking skills. Ask your naturopathic doctor if popular health hoaxes are right for you.
