(NaturalNews) The latest heavy metals analysis by the Health Ranger, editor of Natural News, shows that all liquid iodine supplements tested were remarkably clean of toxic heavy metals including lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury.

Products and brands tested include:

- J Crow's Iodine
- Magnascent Nascent Iodine
- Iodine for Life
- Nascent Iodine from LL Magnetic Clay)
- Atomic Iodine
- Original Nascent Iodine (Health Ranger)
- Lugol's Iodine
- Atomidine
- Detoxidine (GHC)
- Liquid Iodine Forte

"These results are great news for the many millions of customers who take supplementary iodine," said lead researcher Mike Adams. "Our analysis shows that all the brands and lot numbers tested are remarkably low in heavy metals composition, and some are orders of magnitude lower than what we have found in some organic superfood products."

Concentrations of heavy metals really do matter

This scientific assessment of heavy metals concentrations in iodine supplements lends yet more support to the idea that concentrations matter. When given the choice, nearly all health-conscious consumers seek to minimize their exposure to dietary toxins such as MSG, GMOs, aspartame, BPA, pesticides and heavy metals.

The results published by the Natural News Forensic Food Lab show that popular iodine supplements -- which naturally have a very tiny serving size of sometimes just two drops -- likely contribute virtually no heavy metals to the diet of a typical consumer.

"These results are as very optimistic and even exciting for regular consumers of iodine supplements," explained Adams, who runs the atomic spectroscopy laboratory that documented these data. "The highest lead concentration we found was just .063 ppm, and over half the iodine supplements we tested showed less than 10 parts per billion, which we consider to be 'zero' for our online results charts."

This stands in sharp contrast to other results documented by Adams, who has shown that some vegan protein products contain over 10 ppm of total heavy metals and are consumed in significantly larger quantities -- sometimes over 100 grams per day by dedicated consumers.

Laboratory tests conducted by Adams did not measure actual iodine concentrations of the iodine products listed here. Instead, they sought to determine whether heavy metals were present in significant concentrations in popular iodine products.

DISCLAIMER: The Natural News Store sells Original Nascent Iodine branded by the Health Ranger. Like all products included in this laboratory testing, Original Nascent Iodine was remarkably clean in heavy metals and was subjected to precisely the same laboratory methodology as other samples tested.

Iodine supplement testing confirms value of Natural News Forensic Food Lab

The publication of these test results once again confirm the value of the Natural News Forensic Food Lab and its dedication to serving the public interest with accurate scientific testing of dietary supplements and superfoods.

"The knowledge that concerning levels of heavy metals were absent from every iodine product we tested is very valuable to people who consume these products," explained Adams. "Although we cannot vouch for the contents of every lot and batch produced by these manufacturers, the consistency of clean lab results shown in our testing is strong evidence that iodine products from these brands are likely to show little or no contamination with heavy metals."

Adams is careful to caution that iodine itself has a very specific range of safety and efficacy, and that "more is not always better." Consumers of iodine products are encouraged to work with their holistic health practitioners to determine appropriate doses designed to address their own health goals and challenges.

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.
