(NaturalNews) In conjunction with the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (ConsumerWellness.org), Natural News (NaturalNews.com) has begun publishing heavy metals lab reports for off-the-shelf food products. With industrial pollution worsening and many "organic" foods now imported from China, heavy metals and toxic elements are increasingly being found in foods purchased by consumers, including some certified organic foods.

Through NaturalNews.com, heavy metals lab results are available free to the public and include parts per billion (ppb) concentrations of Aluminum, Arsenic, Cadmium, Mercury, Lead and Copper. Due to concerns about foods absorbing radioactive fallout from the Fukushima catastrophe, results for Cesium and Uranium are also included. Toxic elements are linked to diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, kidney failure, cognitive impairment, birth defects, hardening of the arteries and more.

Testing is conducted via ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry), using high-level analytical chemistry and cutting edge scientific instrumentation.

Foods being tested by the CWC include fast foods, conventional grocery products, breakfast cereals, superfoods, protein powders, infant formula, packaged meats, dairy products, sodas, teas and dietary supplements. A small selection of lab results is already published, with dozens more posted each week. Results are available now at:

Total transparency for foods, superfoods, organics and supplements

Mike Adams, the executive director of the Consumer Wellness Center, oversees laboratory operations. "This food science project is about providing transparency to consumers so they can make informed decisions about what foods they wish to consume or avoid," Adams explains. "Many people also have health conditions which are worsened by toxic heavy metals, and given that these elements can stay in the body for decades, consumers are empowered by knowing which foods are safer for them to consume."

Adams has also released a video explaining the announcement:

Currently, the FDA sets no upper limit on allowable heavy metals in foods. The USDA's certified organic program also defines no limits. Foods can be legally sold in the United States even when they contain extremely high levels of heavy metals and toxic elements.

Because heavy metal contaminants are not required to be listed on labels, food consumers are unknowingly buying and consuming them in concerning quantities. All heavy metals bio-accumulate in mammals and humans, meaning the longer someone continues to eat them, the worse the health effects can become.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, 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.

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.
