(NaturalNews) An exclusive Natural News investigation reveals that Michigan State University (MSU) is eliminating toxic waste / deadly environmental toxins by selling them to the public as "surplus" materials. At least one of these materials can be weaponized by terrorists and used to poison municipal water supplies and cause widespread neurological damage to the population.

Using nothing more than a credit card on the MSU surplus website (, I was able to accidentally purchase an enormous quantity of liquid mercury inside a "surplus" polarographic analyzer that MSU sold me for a mere $100.

The unit was packaged in bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts, then placed in a cardboard box. It contained absolutely no warnings about hazardous materials as is required by carriers such as UPS and the USPS. There was no MSDS in the box and no indication whatsoever that the equipment should be kept in an upward orientation to prevent mercury from spilling out. No doubt the people who also packaged this laboratory equipment at MSU were also exposed to mercury during the packaging process (is that what undergrads are for?).

When I received the unit, it was upside down and the bubble wrap was inundated with mercury. No doubt mercury also escaped the cardboard box during shipment, possibly causing neurological damage to the UPS workers who handled the box.

Furthermore, MSU failed to warn me that the shipment contained a highly toxic hazardous substance. There was no indication whatsoever that the device contained a very large quantity of mercury.

Elemental mercury can be weaponized into an aerosol, a vapor, or a deadly nerve agent

What's especially shocking in all this is that a terrorist using just a little bit of chemistry knowledge could "weaponize" this elemental mercury and turn it into far more deadly mercury compounds which could then be deployed against a population through the water supply, a building HVAC intake system or other methods that I need not describe.

For example, terrorists could turn elemental mercury into dimethylmercury, a deadly neurotoxin that just happens to be a colorless liquid with a slightly sweet (deadly) smell. Dimethylmercury is toxic to humans at just 0.1mL (one-tenth of one milliliter). It also passes right through PVC, latex, neoprene and other protective gear, going right into the skin and causing widespread neurological damage.

Yes, it's true that people can acquire very small amounts of mercury in old thermometers and HVAC controllers, but those are tiny fractions of the amount of mercury that MSU shipped to me in just one laboratory instrument. Anyone who wanted to accumulate vast quantities of mercury would be enabled by MSU's surplus store practices which apparently have no safety controls or hazardous materials guidelines whatsoever.

Here's a screen shot of the instrument as offered to the public on the Michigan State University website:

Michigan State University getting rid of deadly hazardous waste by selling it to the public and calling it "recycling"

What's really going on is that MSU has found a clever way to dispose of its toxic waste materials. It simply sells them off to the public on its surplus website while calling it a "recycling" program. The cardboard boxes actually come with a sticker showing a green recycling symbol. Apparently no one at MSU seems to understand that shipping people vast quantities of liquid mercury is not a "green" practice."

Here's an image of the mercury droplets found in the bubble wrap:

And here's an image of the massive amount of mercury I received in a scientific instrument:

In this shipment from MSU, I received enough toxic mercury from MSU to easily kill hundreds of people and possibly thousands. This is enough mercury to cause alarming levels of exposure to possibly as many as one million people and contaminate tens of millions of gallons of lakes, ponds or municipal water supplies.

"It takes only a tiny amount to do serious damage: One-seventieth of a teaspoon can pollute a 20-acre lake to the point where its fish are unsafe to eat," reports the Sierra Club. Yet Michigan State University shipped me thousands of times that amount, no questions asked!

If I were an evil environmental terrorist, I could simply drop this right into the water canal providing the entire water supply to the city of Tucson, Arizona. It wouldn't even be difficult to get it into the water supply feeding Los Angeles. It would take nothing more than some heavy-duty water balloons filled with mercury and a catapult water balloon launcher.

Thankfully, I am far more interested in blowing the whistle on this dangerous university practice rather than using these substances to kill people, so I will be isolating this equipment and holding it as evidence with the hope that EPA officials may take an interest in this practice and seek to prosecute MSU for selling and shipping toxic waste materials packed in cardboard boxes and bubble rap.

Here's more mercury I found just rolling around the top of the equipment as it was shipped via UPS:

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

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. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

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 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.
