Alex Jones and Infowars did not respond to repeated requests for comment. A spokesperson for the Global Healing Center addressed the various supplements discussed in this article, as Dr. Group promotes and recommends them in Jones' videos. They noted, in response to iodine in particular that they "wouldn't discount the importance of research but would also throw in the caveat that there are financial reasons studies happen and financial reasons they don't."Infowars Life sales pitch #1: Corporations have engineered a condition that makes you sick, therefore you need this product.What's amazing about Infowars Life is how well it integrates into the greater Infowars narrative. Take the $29.99 per bottle Secret 12, for example, which is simply liquid vitamin B12. This is a vitamin that plays a key role in the human body, affecting protein metabolism as well as the formation of red blood cells.In a video from Alex Jones' YouTube channel titled "The B12 Conspiracy," Jones and Group explain the worldwide conspiracy that has led to a dire need for B12. "Everyone is deficient in B12," Group says, "because of all the pesticides and everything else that's been sprayed on the soil, 60 percent of the world's soil is now deficient in cobalt," an ingredient in B12 formation.
The reason the FDA has banned colloidal silver, Jones claims, is that it's a "threat to the pharmaceutical companies and a threat to doctor's visits, because it works so good in the body."
Just as Jones refers straight to his expertise, Dr. Group provides no concrete data or research to back such claims. A spokesperson for the GHC told Motherboard that "[t]he importance of iodine is pretty well accepted but studies specific to nascent iodine, as I'm sure you've found, are light."
Not only is there no research to support nascent iodine's supposed effectiveness or special fluoride-blocking characteristics, its supposed chemical makeup is not possible
