Anyone care to dig around to see if he has a science degree or not?
The jargon is accurate for a chemist.
Well, the opposite of having ebola is not having ebola, so he's consistent with homeopathic dogma at least.
From his OWN website:
"Mike Adams has a four-year bachelor of science degree from a prominent university in the Midwest. He has minors in mathematics and economics. "
Such a prominent university that we're not going to bother to tell you which one it was. But it was TOTALLY prominent, you guys.
Ah fuck. I didn't mean to 5-star my own submission.
specific bout minors, vague about the major...don't think he actually finished one.

Only the most serious scientists make videos responding to their internet haterz claims that they are in fact not scientists.

Does the company he works for (and who likely own the lab) give him the OK to bring a webcam and do YT gunk on site? Oh and likely on the clock as well. He's making it sound like it's his lab. Website "About the lab" link links to "Coming Soon".
Notice how he doesn't actually touch any of the actual devices in the lab. The only thing he was apparently allowed to touch was the cabinet. Instead of going "Here is my lab, I am now going to get up, and demonstrate in real time how I process one of these samples I have," he goes "LOOK I HAVE A LAB IT'S NOT FAKE GUYS!"
So yeah. He may have access to this lab, but I'm pretty sure these are just the people he sends his random samples to, and doesn't actually do his science.
Or it's a box with tubes attached that doesn't actually do anything.
It's not like he's at CERN claiming it's all his stuff.
While expensive, equipment like this could be bought used by a health food company, and written off as a business expense on their taxes.
To be more clear;
by making needless conspiracy theories about guys like this, you only make them and their supporters more insular.
Tell us about tendentiousness and polarized ways of thinking, SolRo.
Well, I'm looking at the website now. He's testing food for heavy metal content. That's reasonable. The numbers for cereals are given, but as a total rather than by element. Questionable. Are there toxic metals in food? Yes, at ppb level there certainly are. As so.
These numbers match the order of magnitude of the numbers he's reporting. But so what? If he had spikes of perhaps 10 to 100 times background I'd be worried about that. What he's reporting is roughly how food has been since the 90's.
What he's doing is roughly the same as if I bought a geiger counter, and measured a whole bunch of samples. Then presented the data, but without any average or background count. THERE'S RADIATION IN MY CAT LITTER AND BANANAS!!!! Not exactly according to Hoyle, eh?
Another part of the site (protein powders - whey) has it broken down by element, though with shitty graphs.
(can use a gibberish email to see them, just make sure it has @ and .com in it.)
He runs a couple of businesses. I think one of them is a software consulting firm or something. Chances are he just runs this totally real lab out of one of his own buildings.
He runs a very lucrative software company whose sole interest is in subverting spam-blockers. Profits from said company are estimated to be between million and + million.
He's also a contributor at Infowars. He also counsels vegan parents on how to lie to authorities about their childs diet so that they don't get in trouble for negligence/reckless endangerment.
Figured out his likely science major; Computer Science.
Explains why it's not mentioned on his health food testing website thingy.

Basic rule of thumb everyone should abide by: if any sort of news or information of any kind is coming from or endorsed by Natural News, then it is safe to assume with 99% certainty that it is bullshit scam woo-tastic fraud nonsense.

I don't doubt that he's spent a lot of money on equipment that he knows the names of.
I don't doubt that he has enough college-level chemistry to maybe even understand how to use it well enough to get meaningful-looking data.
