The Alex Jones Deception + Vaccine/Autism B.S. from Dr. Eisenstein

You might be wondering what I think of The Alex Jones Deception, the YouTube documentary-type thing put together by the debunker "Troy from West Virginia" (Troy Sexton). Here are my thoughts on it:

- There are a few excellent points and some funny moments, but it's way too disrespectful and mean-spirited for my tastes. Lots of name-calling, lots of character assassination. I prefer to deal primarily with the information Jones and his guests present to audiences. It doesn't have to get so personal and so nasty.
- Troy has been charged with abusing his son. This casts into serious doubt his assertion that one of Jones' followers falsely reported him to Child Protective Services on a previous occasion.

Speaking of really stupid sh**, Jones' guest Dr. Mayer Eisenstein says it's sunscreen - not the sun - that causes skin cancer. I've heard this from Jones' guests before. Jones figures that because we all need some sunlight, the more the better - no precautions necessary.

Eisenstein is an opponent of all vaccines who offers some highly questionable treatments to his patients. For instance, he promises parents that if they don't have their children vaccinated and give them lots of vitamin D, they will not be autistic. And he believes - despite a complete lack of evidence - that autism occurs when excess testosterone binds to mercury in thimerosal (a vaccine preservative found in very few of the vaccines administered today). So he "cures" autistic children by giving them the powerful hormone suppressant Lupron. It's heavy stuff. My grandfather has been taking it for prostate cancer.
But even if mercury bonded to excess testosterone as theorized (it doesn't), and even if mercury damage resulted in autism (it doesn't), Lupron would not help. Once mercury damage has been done to the brain, it can't be undone. Potential damage from mercury poisoning can only be mitigated if treatment is administered immediately after exposure.
The most disturbing effect of this treatment, though, is that it render males impotent - permanently. It is chemical castration. In fact, it has been used on repeat sex offenders.

And Jones complains about the globalists' plot to sterilize men?

BTW, there have been very serious allegations of malpractice made against Eisenstein's home birth practice by several former patients, as described in this May Chicago Tribune article.

I came here just to see if you commented on the sunscreen thing I had heard on the show the other day and lo and behold you did lol. There's more bad medical advice from this show than anything I've ever seen lately. I mean wtf? Can we say skin cancer?

"We don't need no stinkin' sunscreen. We're from Texas. The sun hides when it sees us comin'."

I never heard Jones recommend Lupron for anything...

I'm trying to tell you this dr. could be a quack, not that Jones endorses the use of Lupron on autistic children. In fact, I've never heard him endorse any particular treatment for autism. I've just heard him say that it's caused by mercury. The closest Jones has come to giving medical advice (aside from telling listeners to avoid certain things, like MSG) was when he said that he doesn't think tetanus shots are a good way to avoid tetanus; he prefers to jab a "sterilized" knife into wounds to "get 'em bleeding".

When did he say that? I dont listen to his show that much . Under what circumstances could that work? Sounds like something his grandmother told him.

I remember when I had a tetanus shot when I was about 18...seconds after the needle came out my arm, everything started to spin. I wasn't looking at the procedure, and am not afraid of needles. Everything went black. I almost fell down and cracked my skull.

I wont get anymore tetanus shots.
