Anti-vaxxing for profit:

«Since 2015, Cook has made a business out of the anti-vaccination narratives of distressed parents. He has raised over $100,000 through multiple GoFundMe campaigns and then via other platforms after GoFundMe banned him in March. Cook has his own Amazon storefront, where he promotes anti-vaccine books and films, taking a cut of the sales, and raises an unknown amount through his website, accepting donations through PayPal that “go directly to me,” according to his website.

“I and I alone decide how to use the funds,” says the site. Cook says the money has funded anti-vaccine ads, advocacy and “secret projects.” He’s currently weighing the launch of a dating site for people with anti-vaccine views. Cook did not respond to multiple requests for comment.»
