Citizen journalism
(NaturalNews) NaturalNews is expanding its audience and editorial reach, so we're ready to bring on new Citizen Journalism writers who want to see their stories published on NaturalNews.com.

We currently publish from 4 - 6 stories each day that are contributed by Citizen Journalists. These writers earn revenues from the Google ads that appear on the top of their articles, and while the earnings aren't a fortune by any means, they have been steadily increasing as NaturalNews readership and reach continues to expand.

In addition, some of our current in-house writers got started as Citizen Journalists! Over time, as we come to know and trust the writing of outstanding contributors, we may offer them paid contract writer positions.

You can apply to be a Citizen Journalist contributor to NaturalNews right here: http://www.naturalnews.com/021982.html

Keep in mind, by the way, that to write for us, you really need to have some solid writing skills. You don't necessarily need to have journalism experience, but knowing how to write effectively with few errors and well-organized thoughts is really important to us.

Also, of course, your articles must be aligned with the values we adhere to here at NaturalNews.com: Holistic living, nutrition, respect for animals and the environment, etc.

Finally, the No. 1 determining factor of how successful people are working with us is attitude. Our in-house editor is very experienced and quite good at catching errors or pointing out mistakes in peoples' articles. For whatever reason, some writers can handle constructive criticism and others can't. If you're the kind of person who has trouble dealing with criticism of your articles by a professional editor, you might find writing for us to be quite stressful, and you're probably better off not applying.

But if you have good writing skills and you're willing to learn from the feedback of an experienced editor, you can achieve a lot of recognition for yourself and your articles through our Citizen Journalism program. We welcome your interest in being a contributing writer for NaturalNews!

He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory 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.

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. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

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 over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
