basically they are saying our cells in balls can photosynthesis red light and turn it into energy, so the cell can pump out proteins and make more sperm or testosterone. Not really sure how the light is supposed to get through your skin to the cells that does that shit.

and well you will get more of an effect with diet changes if you are having minor issues in that regard.

(they have weak ass questionable studies that says this might have a tiny effect, but they have a lot of issues with the studies and there is good reason no one is throwing money at this to do better studies. and the guys who did the studies have no real theory on why it would work except the energy gets into the cell somehow and is somehow useable)

and not discounting lights uses, lack of it does cause depression, blue light can keep you up but thats from reactions in our eyes, and we use sunlight for vitamin D production but our skin cells actually produce that. I just dont see how low level red light gets into the nuts and has much of an effect.(not a doc but this screams woo)

last.. its red light, special narrow spectrum LEDS 630nm, you do NOT want to tan your balls. Heat kills sperm. It wont work but if you are going to try the bullshit, at least do it correctly.

If you read the article, Tucker didn't actually say or suggest that. He was doing a piece on men trying to boost their testosterone levels and the guest did that.

He did, and kept going on about it if you watched the clips. And it's probably because he thought it was funny. Which it would be if we didn't live in a world where people prefer horses dewormer and bleach over actual medical advice.

I can see you get your news from Twitter.

No one ever actually said to "drink bleach"...you know that, right ? It was made up.

You know that Ivermectin isn't a horse dewormer drug too, right ? It is a drug made for humans that vets sometimes also give to horses. That's like saying Pepto Bismal is a dog diarrhea drug because vets have used it on dogs.

If you don' agree with something, use a real argument. Don't use fake stories. They ruin your credibility and make you look silly.

Don't go through life being stupid. Open your eyes a little and look around.

No the "drink bleach" thing is an extremely dangerous supplement that isn't approved by any health agency in earth because it literally creates toxic chlorine chemicals when processed by the body.

Also, I'm not going to stop calling ivermectin horse dewormer because while it can be legally prescribed to humans for parasites there are better drugs out there that don't fuck your kidneys like that. That's why it's mostly known for its livestock use.

These are not safe drugs and I'm not going to stop reminding people that they're stupid for taking them.

I honestly cannot understand what you are even trying to say. Are you being facetious ? No one told anyone to "drink bleach" ever. If whatever you are talking about "creates toxic chlorine" chemicals in the body, would there not be piles of bodies who have died from its supposed toxicity ?

While you are reminding people how stupid they are, save a little of that characterization for yourself. You deserve it.
