A Nasty Rant From the ‘Health Ranger’

[BPSDB]I cannot be the only person infuriated by the decision of Mike Adams, the self-styled ‘Health Ranger’, to exploit the tragic killing of an eight year old boy to push his agenda. I hope you don’t mind me adding to the criticism but I need to, well, let off steam about it.

He begins:-

I’ve always said that Big Pharma executives were guilty of crimes against humanity. Now one of their wealthiest and most successful executives has been caught trying to pull off a murder-suicide in an upscale NY hotel. Gigi Jordan, who ran pharmaceutical companies selling pills to treat cancer, murdered her 8-year-old son by force-feeding him ground-up pharmaceuticals which included Xanax and Ambien.

Let’s just stop right there for a moment and consider what this says about the pharmaceutical industry: Even its own executives know their drugs are toxic enough to commit murder.

Toxicity is in the dose. A bottle of paracetamol will cause an agonising death by liver failure but if you stick to the dosage advised by the manufacturers you will reduce the aches and fever symptoms of influenza. So is paracetomal toxic? Clearly, it depends how much you take. Closer to Adams’ way of pill-taking, overdosing on Vitamins A and D will cause illness and death.

He says that nobody finds this incident surprising:-

Why is nobody really surprised that a wealthy executive who pushed dangerous pills for a living might end up killing her own son with some of those same chemicals? The reason nobody is really surprised is because deep down, we already know that Big Pharma executives are mentally insane.

So he is able to diagnose ‘insanity’ for every executive in an entire industry. How many of them has he ever met? How many could he even name? Yet he is sure they are ‘insane’. He goes on:-

They earn their financial wealth at the expense of other peoples’ health. They push pills that harm people, that produce disturbing side effects and that even kill people. They oversee companies engaged in price fixing fraud, disease mongering, corruption and bribery.

Big Pharma executives are the mob crime bosses of the 21st century, and beyond being guilty of crimes against humanity, they are mentally disturbed themselves.

He obviously feels very brave taking on these monsters. And perhaps he is right to so feel. I am not a lawyer but the above is at least potentially libellous. He must have read in the US newspapers about the repressive nature of Britain’s libel laws and since his site can be read in Britain the evil Big Pharma bosses could sue him for libel in the British courts. Not that I would want Big Pharma to do such a thing. That would only make him a martyr in the eyes of people who actually believe his nonsense.

Naturally, he can explain why Big Pharma bosses are so mad and evil:-

And why are they so mentally disturbed? Perhaps because they take their own medicine. They eat their own fraudulently-approved chemicals — the same chemicals they worked so hard to get approved by burying the truth about their side effects. The more they swallow, the more they become mentally imbalanced. The side effects they tried to hide from the world can’t hide from human physiology…

He seems to be having a little problem maintaining consistancy here. Surely if his allegations that Big Pharma bosses are covering up the dangers of their products are true, they would not actually take them themselves. If they are taking them, does that not mean they believe them to be safe?

He continues:-

I wouldn’t be at all surprised to learn that Gigi Jordan was on antidepressant drugs (SSRIs) or other antipsychotics. The side effects of these drugs include committing violent acts against others. Murder-suicide has happened before under the influence of SSRIs. Remember the Columbine school shootings? That was a pharmaceutical-inspired mass murder.

So now he speculates without evidence as to what medication Ms Jordan might have been taking. Oh, and I am not a pharmacologist but I was under the impression that antidepressants and antipsychotics were different kinds of drugs. And he presents no evidence for his hypothesis that the Columbine murderers were on either type of drug.

He then tries to use this tragedy to prove the virtue of ‘superfood’ peddlers:-

Superfood executives don’t murder their children. You don’t see the founders of superfood companies going berserk and murdering their own children.

You don’t see any arms salesmen killing their own children either, with their own products or otherwise. By Adams’ logic, this makes people who sell guns to warring factions in civil conflicts around the globe moral upstanding people.

You don’t find many people murdering their own children full-stop. This crime is such an extreme-outlier that, while it may tell you more than you want to know about the perpetrator, it tells you nothing about their profession. In fact any extreme activity by individuals tells you nothing about their profession. I presume Adams would not like all vitamin peddlars to be judged by the activities of Matthias Rath?

    Sounds to me like somebody needs to get the Health Ranger on some sort of medication right away!

    Surely he’s suffering under some sort of verifiable mental illness…

  4. Rob Says:

    “And he presents no evidence for his hypothesis that the Columbine murderers were on either type of drug.”
    According to the wikipedia, one of the 2 Columbine killers was taking antidepressants which were prescribed after he “complained of depression, anger, and suicidal thoughts”.

    Quite how psychiatric medications were involved in the worst school massacre in US history – which happened in 1927 – is unclear.

    • jaycueaitch Says:

      Thanks for that link, Rob. Conceded that one of them was on antidepressants, it is not proven that the pills were the cause of the massacre. Many guesses have been bandied abouit and, as Michael Moore pointed out, the killers went bowling before their shooting spree. Correlation is not cause and effect.

  5. Mr Cee Says:

    If we’re going to play the ‘wild and unpleasant extrapolation from a single case’ game, we may as well point out that homeopaths kill their children, slowly and painfully, by using homeopathy instead of conventional medicine.

    • henry blince Says:

      There has been at least one documented case of advocates of homeopathic remedies killing one of their children. In Australia last year two parents, Thomas and Manju Sam, were found guilty and sentenced to 25 years for manslaughter by gross negligence. The child suffered from severe eczema, the parents refused conventional treatment in favour of homeopathic remedies. The child’s state eventually became so bad that she died.

      But of course, we shouldn’t tar them all with the same brush, should we.

  6. Dumbass Says:

    Surely it’s clear that these kids were taking antidepressants because of emotional problems that had plagued them prior to their having them prescribed. It’s pretty silly to claim that the antidepressants caused their problems.

  7. Murder-Suicide; Mike knows it’s the Big Pharma way « Health Tonto; he follow Health Ranger Says:

    […] that a teacher became a serial killer because of the violent brutality inherent within education? JQH points out that we’ve not heard of armaments executives murdering their children, so are we to conclude […]

  8. RDS4 Says:

    Wow. Talk about taking things out of context & having a one sided view of the issues. Anytime you are taking a chemical (especially the ones that say once you start taking you can’t just stop) you are risking your life. Whether those effects are immediate or long term I prefer to CHOOSE every option but drugs. If there is a time in my life where taking a drug to save my life is my only option then, and only then, will I consider it. Popping a pill has become the same as most things in society now… Convenience at all cost… don’t like your baby? Suck it out of your womb piece by piece. Can’t keep it in your pants? Just take a pill. God forbid we do the hard work of staying healthy & making lifestyle choices without resorting to so-called “miracle drugs”.

    Mike reminds me of an ex-smoker… he is the son of a big wig in the pharma industry… he knows first hand what drugs can do to hinder the body from healing itself because he’s been on a whole bunch of them. Just as a smoker who quits usually becomes hyper-sensitve to second hand smoke… Mike has become hyper sensitive to what dangerous chemicals (never meant for the human body) can do. Cut the guy some slack and stop being so thin skinned. Grow up and Wake up.

    • jaycueaitch Says:

      You seem to be a tad thin-skinned yourself. Why not take your own advice?

    • Truthishere Says:

      I guess you guys miss the point. Mike Adams has failed logic. If Pharma pills are so bad (as Mike puts it) and he was on so many of them. Then why was he was such a childhood genius (As he claims in his bio on healthranger.com)? You would think if he was so sick and pilled up as a child he would have never been so dang smart. He claims that vaccines make you retarded yet he was a genius and vaccinated? Hmmm something is not right about this guy. There is such a thing as a forked tongue. From my own personal experience with him, he is just that. Do not get me wrong I am not into taking pills or vaccines. I am into seeing the truth and logic for what it its is. I think the main problem today with these so called truth movers is, when a person speaks a little truth the listener becomes more of a follower of the person speaking it rather then the truth itself. This creates a bias understanding and support system. So when someone points out ill logic about what someone else said it is refuted without logic. It is great if you think he is your hero but that does not mean he can do no wrong. That is ridiculous and dangerous.

    Amen RDS4. How can you not speak about something and not use someone as an example. I trust Mike with my life and I listen to everything he says. I have had 5 back surgeries and I still work , work in my yard, take care of 3 grandchildren because I trust the Lord that he sent me someone like Mike to help me to fight this thing. If I had still listened to my doctor I would be disabled.
