(NaturalNews) Beyond melamine in the powdered milk and plastic in the rice, Chinese farmers have managed to achieve a little more food history with a new chemical monstrosity: Exploding watermelons.

This was accomplished by applying a chemical growth promoter to the melons. A day later, one farmer saw 180 watermelons explode. Other farmers lost up to two-thirds of their watermelon crops as the melons exploded in the field. The growth chemical used on watermelons is also used on grapes and other crops, even in the United States, by the way. It's called forchlorfenuron, and research shows that it is implicated in human cancers and neurological disorders (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18713753). It's routinely used on melons and other crops grown in China.

Any chemical for an extra dollar of profit

China is best known around the world for using any chemical whatsoever -- no matter how toxic -- to make an extra buck. In China, clever hucksters will use black dye to paint regular sesame seeds so they look like black sesame seeds which bring a premium price. When harvesting rare fish that fetch a high price per pound, Chinese fishermen have been known to inject the fish with mercury to increase their weight.

The Communist Chinese culture, which utterly lacks any ethics, religion, spirituality or any principles of respecting life, is the source of all this food insanity. The culture is very similar to modern-day conventional scientists in America who also believe there is no such thing as consciousness, free will, spirit or soul (http://www.naturalnews.com/032359_The_God_Wi...).

Without any belief in religion, karma or a spiritual existence after death, Chinese farmers have no philosophical foundation from which to respect life. This is why China is poisoning itself in a sea of toxic chemicals. This is why Chinese powdered milk producers will poison their own neighbors by putting melamine in the mix. This is also why China will soon give rise to a generation of mutants suffering from widespread infertility and physical deformities.

Mainland Chinese rivers are so toxic that no one dare bathe in them anymore. You'd probably die from convulsions. The land is heavily sprayed with obscene quantities of toxic pesticides, fungicides and growth accelerators. While there are certified organic suppliers in China who are legitimately cultivating healthful foods, the bulk of the food and supplements coming out of China are so extremely toxic that eating them is risking death.

That watermelons are exploding in the fields there is no surprise. The real surprise is that Chinese couples are still able to have babies at all. Give it another generation and that may no longer be the case.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. 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.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, 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.
