#663: Paul Fassa

Paul Fassa is a gibberingly insane ignoramus who writes for Mike Adams’s website NaturalNews, and one of the less well hinged contributors there (which says quite a bit). Fassa is, for instance, a “germ theory” denialist. That particular idiocy is the main topic of his own blog Health Maven, which bills itself as an “escape from the medical mafia matrix” (he usually doesn't get in many sentences in before invoking the nazis). As he puts it “We have been taught to fear germs, pathogens, viruses, and bacteria that invade us from out there. This is the Pasteur model of disease contagion. This creates a dependency on Big Pharma to protect us from invading microbes, each having one form (monomorphic) and creating one specific disease […]” Instead, Fassa adopts the pleomorphic theory of disease, according to which microorganisms are the result of – not the cause of – disease. He accepts it because it is not accepted by science and has no evidence going for it, which is supposed to prove that it is not the favored theory of the Illuminati and therefore must be right (by the power of conspiracy). That, and some profound misunderstanding of microbiology, medicine and physiology. It is discussed here.

You may already have an idea of what he thinks about vaccines.

Diagnosis: A walking, talking cognitive disaster. And Naturalnews is sufficiently popular for his nonsense to have some impact.


  1. And I think you are a loon, more so than Paul Fassa!.

  2. I agree Ozziegirl. This guy is delusional.

  3. I am honored to be included in the American Loon List. It's a tribute to my earnest attempts at shedding the truth on the medical mafia, similar to the "Quackbuster " epithet thrown on real healers who step outside the medical mafia matrix. Thank you - Paul Fassa, American Loon # 663

  4. His articles take a theory (his) and then he looks for proof of it.
    He never looks for evidence that might disprove it. Then he publishes his "research" as the truth.
    He underrates Sars virus, Swine flu, Ebola. He ignores the deaths, the amount of work done to contain Ebola, the deaths and incapacitation resulting from Swine flu, the danger of the Sars virus in the hands of terrorists.

    Having an opinion that is set against pharmaceuticals etc is fine, but his opinions find their way to vulnerable people, who believe every anti establishment theory they read without discernment.

    Read his articles by all means, many make interesting points and lead to other reading.

    Beef up your immune system with good nutrition and complimentary medicine, but sometimes the medical establishment is where you need to go.
    Remember all the deaths from diphtheria, smallpox, polio, whooping cough etc etc, a strong immune system alone can often not fight these things.

  5. I have been looking for a place to tell Paul Fassa that he needs a good editor. I found two errors in the first two paragraphs of an article about magnesium. Nobody trusts medical information and advice if it has typos.
