UPDATE: I’ve emailed Mr. McGean for a comment on all this. His response is at the end of this blog post. (Yes, he needs help.)
Patrick McGean is someone who needs help. Let me tell you why, then I’ll show you why.
Mr. McGean is a self-described “researcher” who has been conducting a “study” on whether or not “organic sulfur” is a miracle drug:
“While researching this cancer, it became obvious that the sulfur cycle plays an important role in the regeneration of our cells. The Study also found that the use of chemical fertilizers had effectively broken the sulfur cycle in countries that use these fertilizers.
Diseases we hadn’t even heard of have become typical, cancer has grown at an unprecedented rate, and the quality of our food has been greatly diminished. Is there a correlation here?
Since 1954, rates of disease in the U.S. have gone up approximately 4,000 percent. And in 1954, chemical fertilizers were mandated by our government. Fertilizers such as ammonium nitrates and sulfates, which lack bioavailability, appear to have broken the sulfur cycle. This appears to have contributed to the decline of our health, wealth, mental acuity, and quality of life. We believe that when the Study is completed, it will clearly demonstrate a connection between the lack of sulfur and the inability of cells to regenerate in a healthy manner.”
Never mind that deaths from cancer overall, and cases of some cancers in particular are going down. When it comes to snake oil salesmen, they don’t care about no truth.
So what kind of study is this? Check this out:
“The main hypothesis of our Study is that we all may be sulfur deficient. What we are trying to demonstrate is that by adding sulfur back into our diet we can allow healthy cellular regeneration to occur through the enabling of oxygen by sulfur. Sulfur is necessary for our bodies to make many of our amino acids and proteins. The function of the cell membrane is dependent upon the proteins and peptides in these membranes that allow the transport of nutrients and gases across the membrane. When these proteins and peptides are diminished the cell membrane become aplastic and leathery forcing the cell to undergo anaerobic metabolism, acidosis or fermentation are examples of unhealthy cellular metabolism and result in cellular degeneration. When cells are allowed to regenerate after years of being scarred or damaged we believe this is an example of how cellular regeneration can be reactivated and some of the examples of neurological regeneration may be the most impressive.
We follow our Study members with digital photographs of their face to support what they report from taking Organic Sulfur.”
Yep. He just takes photographs of faces. If old scars clear up (as scars do), then he claims it’s the “organic sulfur” the
suckers participants are taking. Is there an institutional review board overlooking this “study”? Nope. Is there a control group? Not that I could find. Have the findings been peer-reviewed? Negative.
But that’s not what makes Mr. McGean someone who needs help.
Mr. McGean has taken to Facebook to post some very threatening statements against anyone involved in doing away with philosophical or religious vaccine exclusions. Exhibit A is this message he sent via Facebook to Dr. Paul Offit:
Not only do I think he needs help because of the threats in his message. I think he also needs help because the message is so nonsensical. It’s stream of consciousness stuff that I’ve only seen with people who are, well, in some sort of mental trouble. And it’s not the only thing he’s written. Here he subtly threatens anyone with a needle:
And then he just gets really weird, threatening California State Senator Richard Pan and others with castration for their efforts to get children vaccinated:
Then there is this very disjointed rant about people he believes are “pedophiles”:
And here are the rest of his rants:
And people egg him on:
Also, if you know someone who has stock in Big Pharma, kill them, according to Mr. McGean:
And here, a very specific threat, with a date pinned on it:
I’d like to say that Mr. McGean is just kidding, just carrying on, or just venting. But I worry that he is not, especially in light of recent credible threats to California lawmakers who passed Senate Bill 277. I really hope Mr. McGean gets the help he seemingly needs to desperately.
UPDATE: Here is what Mr. McGean had to say about this blog post. It’s a threat of violence if I’ve ever read one.
ReubenYou speak to the mothers of “vaccine damaged” children and dr. Paul A. Offits arrogancewill get him harmed but not by my hands. Parents understand the lies of the good doctor andthey also understand his conflict of interest. Defend him if you must, in the land of free youcan do anything you wish even damage children for 30 pieces of silver.Merck is so afraid we may say no they are bribing senators and congressmen to passlaws so they can have access to our biology for rather insidious intentions.Pedophlies are castrated and hung in Utah. Harming a child for any reason is stillpedophilia and our children are OUR Children, not yours.You threat has nothing to do with autistic children while my comments are thosefrom fathers and mothers who are told it was not the vaccination, but they werethere and all describe similar neurological issues Dr. Paul describes it as mimicry.No they can not communicate thanks to the safe heavy metals used as preservativesby the kind killers at Merck.By the way we don’t play, is today a good day to die?By the way why would defend the new rich, or are you just defending sciencebecause they for the most part could not defend themselves for the damage theydo to children and their mothers. There is no proof vaccines are safe noreffective yet you may believe they are a modern medical medical, Rumor hasit, and the rumor is a deadly lie. 4 million children unable to communicate inany language, being they are lost in their own mind, which Dr. Offit says it isimpossible. Do the math somebody is lying and I speak to the mothers.I hope the response has fed your testosterone effectively now considersomeone else other than Dr. Offit, Dr. Pan or even Gov. Jerry Brown.Freedom still exists? Or will the mandating vaccines remove all of thosewho would violate the Constitution to make a buck and remove suchfreedoms?Got sulfur?
