Wolfe has been criticized for promoting pseudoscience.[26][27] His popularity on social media networks such as Facebook has led to backlash articles from critics, who accuse him of profiting from pseudoscience and promoting potentially harmful subjects, such as anti-vaccination.[28]

• He promotes a diet based on raw plants,[22][29] stating that this has a "detoxification" effect, while no scientific basis for this sort of "detoxification" has been noted.[26][30]
• He advocates that people with cancer take dietary supplements instead of getting medical treatment, which he describes as “largely a fraud.”[31]
• He believes that "chemtrails" exist and are harmful to people and animals.[22][32] There is no evidence of the existence of "chemtrails", and multiple scientific agencies have explained that such clouds are merely common contrails.[33]
• He has considered cocoa to be one of several "superfoods",[25][34] a marketing term with no clear definition and not in widespread use by dieticians and nutrition scientists.[35]
• He says that deer antler spray is "levitational" and an "androgenic force", which he promotes and sells.[29][36]
• He claims that mushrooms have an "advanced intelligence and consciousness". He has stated that mushroom spores can "levitate off the planet" and believes they are trying to "get to the center of the sun".[37] He has stated that mushroom spores originally came from "distant planets" and were "carried by cosmic winds or meteors into the Earth's atmosphere", stating "the preliminary work develops as the mushroom mycelium sets itself up to network and nourish multi-celled carbohydrate-forming organisms".[38] He has also stated that the mushrooms that grow in trees are "medicinal mushrooms".[39]
• He believes vaccines are dangerous and may not work.[22][40][41]
• He believes that the Earth is flat and that gravity is a hoax,[42][43][44] ideas that are considered to be pseudoscientific and are not compatible with the physical evidence of the Earth, which is spheroidal in shape.[45]
