49% Of Americans Believe U.S. Government Is Trying To Kill Them

"A new study from the University of Chicago says that nearly half of all Americans believe medical conspiracy theories," RT reports.

"Researchers polled a bunch of people about whether or not they believed in six popular theories. 49% agreed with at least one. All the theories involve the US government doing terrible things to essentially kill people. Some in the MSM used the study to say people are nuts; The Resident thinks it says something else."

From the study:

"Over the past 50 years, numerous conspiracy theories have materialized around public health matters such as water fluoridation, vaccines, cell phones, and alternative medicine. What remains unclear is whether the American public supports these conspiracy theories or whether they correlate with actual health behaviors."

-

Here's the thing: while water flouridation and vaccine conspiracists are looney tunes, the government is spying on us, they have committed medical atrocities and regulators have failed to keep Corporate America from poisoning us. So are the results of this study really so outlandish? The U.S. government has no one but itself to blame.
