Idk if this is what the other redditor was talking about, but amazon has a listing for "Natural Harvest";

I highly recommend reading some of the available pages. It's hilarious, especially at the desserts section.

This is how they sell it.

> Turpentine has been used as natural remedy for a variety of health problems for generations! Great-grandmothers used turpentine for a yearly "cleansing" for every member of the family or for her rheumatism and nagging cough. While the thought of using paint brush cleaner sounds harsh and foolish, turpentine could be classified as an herbal remedy.
> Herbal remedies are medicines made from plants, and that is just what true turpentine is! Turpentine is made by distilling pine resin from pine trees. Many essential oils are made by distilling plant material into a concentrated natural medicine.

I'm not linking to site, i don't want to give them traffic, but it also lists turpentine as being part of ''protocols'' for autistic children.

Want to know how popular it is, check out the amazon review stats here

On the Q&A section, the question is asked "The label on the bottle says this is not for internal use?", the response from the seller (and producer)...

> This is in accordance with FDA regulations.
> Also in accordance with FDA regulations, we do not give medicinal advice regarding our products. You are welcome to read customer reviews of our products to obtain the information you are seeking, or you can also seek out the advice of a holistic health practitioner.
> Thanks again!

So they're selling this snake oil, knowing they have to deceive the FDA to do it, and telling people to read the reviews for the ''medical'' advice as they know they cannot give any.

People do in fact drink turpentine. Despite the fact that it is in no way beneficial, and actually poisonous. Check out the reviews:

My personal favorites:

>This kind is for paint thinner not arthritis.


>This was a natural medicine before big pharma lobbied Washington to stop its medicinal use. Why? it cut into their profits. (Both my grandparents and their parents used it).
Mix 2-3 drops with a carrier oil (like natural sweet almond oil), blend it w/ a Q-Tip, put it on your soles, put on socks while you sleep. Or a few drops on sugar, sugar cube or a bite of something sweet like a cookie (When taken internally sugar is an activating agent - it attracts yeast, some microbes, parasites, etc). Yes it helps on a surprising large host of health issues from Lyme disease to GI issues to skin issues, etc. I've been using it for months. Data mine its healing powers on the net and you'll see. Remember before Big Pharma there were natural medicines and they still work. This is Not the same turpentine as you'd get from the hardware store. This pure gum spirits of turpentine, it comes from certain kind of Southern pine tree, just like maple syrup comes from maple trees up north.


>I'm into my 3rd week now (yes,I had so many parasites I have to do the intense 4xweek protocol probably for 1 whole month at least. I had a smaller "bloom" of parasites after my second week (nowhere near the usual blooms, maybe 1/8 what I usually get). So I started a third week, and after the first dose of week 3, I stopped feeling the wriggling/biting sensations all over. I have gotten rid of a lot of candida, parasites, can think way more clearly. My husband started it too (he just finished week 2) and I can't believe his energy. He was one of those who never felt symptoms, but had a lot of gas, so probably had lots of candida, etc. He's way better now. Nuy yourself some black walnut/wormwood tincture and take 1 full teaspoon 1 x week to get them good and dead. Take clove daily to help kill the eggs. Check Dr. Hulda Clark online for dosage info about those products.

You think if they had such a strong opinion on it, they'd have noticed by now that generally the first countries to ditch the gold standard were also the same countries to recover from the Great Depression first, given fiat currency isn't nearly as susceptible to currency shocks, being able to recover its value far better than the gold standard.

But I guess it'd be too much to ask them to read Bernanke.

Well, vaccines have technically been around for a few hundred years at least to my knowledge. The first successful smallpox vaccination, for example, was developed by Edward Jenner in 1796. And there was a sort of DIY inoculation method developed hundreds of years earlier in China that had an incredibly low mortality rate.

This Wikipedia page has a lot more information, but if you're really interested in learning more about smallpox, you've got to read Pox Americana by Elizabeth A. Fenn.

The series was called "The Value of..." and the Pasteur-specific story was The Value of Believing in Yourself.

In Search of Respect is a good way to understand how this happens. An anthropologist goes to East Harlem to study crack dealers in the 90's.

While not being Satan, he was arguably and pretty objectively, the worst President in history. It's a long read but it's very very well sourced and nearly impossible to try and rebut.

Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design

> When Charles Darwin finished The Origin of Species, he thought that he had explained every clue, but one. Though his theory could explain many facts, Darwin knew that there was a significant event in the history of life that his theory did not explain. During this event, the “Cambrian explosion,” many animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record without apparent ancestors in earlier layers of rock.

One that stands out in my memory is a book called One Boy's Struggle. It really put things into perspective, and also taught me a lot of coping mechanisms his brain had no choice but to create as a child.

u/Celtic_Queen · 1 pointr/insanepeoplefacebook

There's another book based on the same premise called Fatherland

u/streetbum · 25 pointsr/insanepeoplefacebook

Read that sometime. The paperclip scientists did some fucked up human experimentation for our government after they came here. Wasn't all good.

EDIT: apparently she has a book on paperclip too. Didn't know. Probably goes over a lot of the same stuff but in more detail.

I said "main reason". The hard evidence was how the western christian world suddenly did a flip flop on communism after WWII.

Official wikipedia sources don't even touch on the subject, because I think that English-speaking sources are biased (as is everything WWII-related).

u/sickneckbeardbro · -5 pointsr/insanepeoplefacebook

That's kinda scary, it's almost like the blind leading the blind then. You actually thought it was legitimate? The book is real and it's likely a joke/advert.

u/Carpicon · 14 pointsr/insanepeoplefacebook

There is an essay by James M McPherson’s This Mighty Scourge that explorers the absolute propaganda machine that started right after the war and continues to this day that shaped the South’s views on the war.

It’s a fascinating read.

I hate these type of posts. Don't they remind you of "The Monster at the End of the Book" where they keep warning not to read it and go through all these insecurities about why you shouldn't read the book because you don't want to get to the end? √
