THIS EXPLAINS EVERYTHING: Supplement Sold By Alex Jones Contains 6X Legal Limit Of Lead, Group Says

Newsweek reports:

The Infowars store — “a one-stop shop for the modern conspiracy theorist,” as Charlie Warzel of BuzzFeed once called it—is sort of like the Vitamin Shoppe remodeled by someone who, well, listens a little too closely to Alex Jones. You can find Wake Up America! Coffee (“Patriot Blend”) for the decidedly non-populist price of $17.95 per pound and organic frankincense oil ($19.95), whose “warm and spicy smell” is sure to fend off the New World Order.

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.

    Most horny males without the benefit of vast sums of money and power are content with just jacking off. What is it about M&P that makes men get all rapey? Huh, Harvey? Roger? Bill (O and Cos)? Donald??

    • The_Wretched

      Lack of accountability. Sometimes it’s access to potential victims.

    • Todd20036

      Makes them feel entitled to the point that women are sex toys, not humans

      • JWC

        about this # Me Too Think of all the young males who cannot speak out. Have been coerced, fondled subjected to or raped by these same threatening monsters

        • Addam Miller

          Or just those of us who have been victimized. Regardless if the offender was a person of financial influence or not

          • JWC

            There seems to be a different code of ethics when it concerns a male. Almost as if you could have stopped it or fouught them off. That totally ignores the circumstances

          • David Walker

            “Real men don’t get raped” was the thinking until fairly recently. “A real man wouldn’t let anybody do that to him” was another. There was something on FB a couple of days ago asking women to acknowledge if they’d been raped. And I really did feel excluded. Rape is horrible. AND it’s horrible when it happens to you. And men ARE raped. Of course, the preponderance of cases involve women as victims, but believe me…that’s not 100% of the cases.

          • JWC

            No it is not the case, I would suggest an unproven percentage of 30-40% But men do NOT nor are they encouraged to talk about it Psychiatrist would take weeks to discouver that

    • Tawreos

      Surrounding oneself with yes men leads one to believe that everyone will say yes.

    • CanuckDon

      There really needs to be some in depth discussions around this. Men who find not only enjoyment in self-pleasure but no shame as well, tend to be those who aren’t money-obsessed and power-hungry….and it’s all relative. Power seekers are usually driven by a need to prove their worth not only to others but to themselves.

    OK, so I’m a manufacturer of “supplements”…who in their fucking right mind would go “ok, I think I’ll put a bunch of lead in this formula”?

    Ok, I guess I answered my own question. Alex Jones.

    • Tulle Christensen

      An aspiring alchemist. turning lead into gold by selling the lead for gold?

    • The_Wretched

      Not just china but a number of manufactures put in ‘filler’ materials and then spike the product to get it to pass tests. One of my fav examples was a ‘water pearl toy’. They coat beads with a chemical that reacts when wet. You arrange the beads and then wet them and they fuse. Turns out the linking molecule is a hallucinogen if it’s 13 atoms long between the end groups and it’s less expensive to make the shorter molecule than the longer ~ 20 atoms (non hallucinogen) one. They work the same for the toy.

      • -M-

        I guess that’s better than baby formula and pet food with toxic melamine to fake the protein levels.

    • Cattleya1

      They probably are either having this crap manufactured in China or they are buying Chinese raw ingredients.

      Nothing will be done about it because Alex Jones is a close personal friend of Donald Trump. If anything federal regulations will be relaxed and Executive Order signed to impose the same low standards upon the states.

    Some key facts courtesy of the World Health Organisation.

    1. Lead is a cumulative toxicant that affects multiple body systems and is particularly harmful to young children.
    2. Lead in the body is distributed to the brain, liver, kidney and bones. It is stored in the teeth and bones, where it accumulates over time. Human exposure is usually assessed through the measurement of lead in blood.
    3. Lead in bone is released into blood during pregnancy and becomes a source of exposure to the developing fetus.
    4. There is no known level of lead exposure that is considered safe.
    5. Lead exposure is preventable.

    Please weigh in, JMG sisters and brothers.

    If the answer is “yes,” I have two unopened boxes of Mallomars I want to finish first.

    • Tawreos

      Are you hoping the answer is yes so that you get to eat all of the Mallomars?

        Well, yes.

          You need to stock up.

            One box? Don’t be going all diet conscious now.

          • another_steve

            Years ago they came out with a bogus, phony substitute for Mallomars called “Pinwheels.”

            I and other Mallomars lovers hate them.

    • Cattleya1

      I’d rather finish a bottle of good bourbon.

      • another_steve

        Bourbon is excellent but for reasons known only to the universe, it aggravates my reflux and gin never does.

        In Judaism we recognize two major miracles:

        (1) the parting of the Red Sea by Moses; and

        (2) the failure of gin to cause reflux in another_steve.

        • Cattleya1

          I didn’t used to like gin, but in my dotage, I’ve made my peace with it, if it has lots of lime juice and club soda mixed in. I still don’t get martinis.

          • another_steve

            Hear ya. In my experience, the well-prepared martini is the most perfect cocktail ever devised by humankind. And believe me, I’ve tried every imaginable cocktail in my day.

            Martini lovers differ on point. Some prefer a glass of gin that’s been “rinsed” with vermouth. Some prefer a 50/50 – half gin, half dry vermouth. Some prefer a drier version – perhaps 3 parts gin to 1 part vermouth, or 4 or 5 parts gin to 1 part vermouth. Individual tastes vary.

            Key is the use of quality ingredients.

            Life’s much too short to skimp on these.

        And gun nuts dump this into their environments without ANYBODY seemingly giving a shit.

        Also, Washington State’s L&I is a product of the scumbag Californians that moved there in the 80’s-90’s escaping California’s regulations.

        ALL indoor firing ranges are contaminated, ALL environments recreational shooters frequent are contaminated.

        Read the article again and ask yourself, who’s looking out for me ?

        Clearly, nobody in State government at L & I gave a SHIT about anybody.

    Symptoms of lead poisoning:

    [✔] Developmental delay.
    [✔] Learning difficulties.
    [✔] Hyperactivity.
    [✔] Irritability.
    [✔] Loss of appetite.
    [✔] Weight loss.
    [✔] Sluggishness and fatigue.
    [✔] Abdominal pain.
    [✔] Vomiting.

    Yep. That pretty well covers the loyal listeners.

    • GanymedeRenard

      I’d be inclined to exclude loss of appetite weight loss, considering the obesity rates in the Bible belt. Maybe also hyperactivity. Other than that, it looks like an accurate list.
