(NaturalNews) On the heels of Olympian Michael Phelps' deal with Kellogg's to promote sugary breakfast cereals -- a move for which he was widely criticized -- NaturalNews has learned that Phelps is also involved in a deal with McDonald's to introduce Chinese children to American junk food. According to, a mainstream news source in China, Michael Phelps is serving as an ambassador for a program sponsored by McDonald's to bring Chinese children to the Olympics and serve them American fast food.

But keep reading, and see why Michael Phelps may deserve another chance at being a true hero, and why I've personally volunteered to be his nutrition coach.

Pushing junk foods is an American tradition, it seems. Introduce a nation to our processed foods and junk foods, and in just one generation, its population will need our high-profit pharmaceuticals and chemotherapy drugs, too. Because once a nation starts eating American junk foods, degenerative disease is not far behind: Cancer, diabetes, depression, heart disease, Alzheimer's, osteoporosis, infertility, behavior disorders and a whole lot more. These are the debilitating health conditions caused by eating fast food and junk food on a regular basis. (Just ask Morgan Spurlock of Supersize Me.)

Coke, Pepsi, McDonald's... these are the food industry ambassadors of the United States, it seems, and in my opinion they only bring disease and death to the countries they target. Olympian Michael Phelps is currently an active participant in this "junk food imperialism" that's sweeping through China, ensnaring hundreds of millions of children in a junk food diet that may doom many of them to deadly diseases later in life.

Of course, if you ask Coke, Pepsi and McDonald's, all their products are perfectly healthy and there's no relationship between fast food and poor health. Perhaps that's what Michael Phelps believes, too. But no informed consumer (or even doctor) believes that anymore. It is now common knowledge that sugary soda pop contributes to obesity, diabetes and bone loss. It is also common knowledge that eating at McDonald's on a regular basis is extremely unhealthy. Just look at the nutrition facts on a Big Mac: An incredible 29 grams of fat, 10 grams of heart-clogging saturated fat, virtually no fiber and over a thousand milligrams of sodium! And that doesn't even count the fries and Coke that usually accompany it.

If we want to see China become a meat-eating, environment-destroying, health-suppressing, disease-infested cattle-factory abyss like much of America, then rounding up Chinese children and bringing them to McDonald's is certainly the way to accomplish that.

Michael Phelps introduces Chinese children to McDonald's

To see Michael Phelps serving as an ambassador to McDonald's, actively engaged in recruiting Chinese children to become McDonald's customers, is downright disturbing. Sipping sugary sodas, chewing on unhealthful, inhumane meat products and eating French fries loaded with acrylamides is not exactly the kind of habit a champion should encourage in others. And this doesn't even mention the brainwashing and child behavior conditioning pursued by McDonald's to imprint happiness on children's impressionable young brains, even while they're being fed extremely unhealthful foods that may ultimately harm them.

See the picture here of Michael Phelps bringing Chinese children to McDonald's:

Sad, isn't it? Here's an Olympic champion using his fame to recruit innocent Chinese children into an American junk food restaurant. I guess the only saving point in all this is that when those children need organ transplants later in life, they will have easy access to them thanks to the organ harvesting black market in China which suddenly seems to have a whole lot of kidneys and livers available following the arrest and rounding up of free speech protestors and Falun Gong members.

If Michael Phelps is an ambassador of McDonald's, in my opinion he is an ambassador of disease, death and bankruptcy. America is the world's largest exporter of disease, and Michael Phelps appears to be right at the forefront of this effort.

But it's not too late... can Phelps redeem himself? Keep reading...

What would Michael Phelps' mother think of him pushing junk foods?

Astoundingly, Michael Phelps' own mother has been teaching nutrition to local schoolchildren at the middle school where she works. NaturalNews has learned that Phelps' mother, Deborah Phelps, "...designed and implemented an interdisciplinary, award-winning nutrition and food science curriculum, created a state-of-the-art food science lab and was a member of a variety of school improvement committees."

This is reported on the Windsor Mill Middle School website in Baltimore, Maryland, where Deborah Phelps is the Principal of the school. You can read it yourself here:

What would Deborah Phelps think of Michael Phelps pushing McDonald's and Frosted Flakes to children? If she cares about the health of children, she would likely be outraged at Michael's actions, but we haven't interviewed Deborah, so we can't say for sure. What we can say, however, is that Michael Phelps' promotions of McDonald's and sugary breakfast cereals directly contradicts his own mother's publicly-stated nutrition programs designed for schoolchildren.

Then again, Deborah Phelps probably isn't being paid ten million dollars to design healthy food choices for schoolchildren. She's simply doing it because she has a professional responsibility to her school's children and it's the right thing to do.

In the next article, I announce my willingness to volunteer as Michael Phelps' nutritionist, helping him exceed his eight gold medals by preparing for the 2012 Olympics using the world's most powerful superfoods and nutritional know-how. With superfoods nutrition boosting his performance to even higher levels, Phelps would truly be the greatest champion in the history of Olympic swimming.

With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
