Uh-Oh! Alex Jones Accused of Selling Lead-Tainted Supplements

In news that will make the hair on the back of your human-animal hybrid stand up, noted death battler and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is being accused of selling supplements tainted with “potentially dangerous levels” of lead.

This potentially damning finding comes from a new report by Newsweek detailing how the CEH (Center for Environmental Health) recently filed a claim against Jones and InfoWars.

From CEH’s official press release:

Independent testing commissioned by national health watchdog the Center for Environmental Health (CEH) found high levels of lead in two Alex Jones Infowars products. Tests found that two supplements sold on Alex Jones’ Infowars store contained significant levels of lead well in excess of California Proposition 65 limits. Lead is a dangerous chemical well known to have devastating developmental impacts on children. Crucial, but less well-known are its effects on men, including sperm damage, heart disease, and high blood pressure. One of the Alex Jones products tested had more than six times the daily limit under Proposition 65.

In particular, the dangerous heavy metal was found in some of Jones’ signature supplements—the InfoWars “Caveman Paleo Formula” and the InfoWars “Myco-ZX.”

At the time of the article’s posting, InfoWars has not responded to request for comment from Newsweek.
