CWC Labs announces heavy metals water and soils testing services to the public; 20 toxic metals, minerals and trace elements analyzed via ICP-MS


Heavy metals testing lab
(NaturalNews) Internationally accredited laboratory CWC Labs, the analytical science branch of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center, today announced water and soils testing services that analyze samples for 20 elements, including 7 toxic metals. Details are available at CWClabs.com.

The service, available via a sampling kit purchased online, allows anyone to collect a soil or water sample and send it to the laboratory for authoritative scientific analysis. There, accredited scientists analyze the sample to determine its parts per billion concentrations for 20 elements, including 7 toxic heavy metals (like lead, arsenic and mercury), 3 major minerals (such as magnesium) and 10 trace elements (such as zinc and selenium).

The director of the laboratory, Mike Adams, author of the No. 1 bestselling science book on Amazon.com entitled "Food Forensics," directs the scientific analysis of all water and soil samples. His recent analysis of hundreds of water samples from across America revealed that 6.7% of municipal water systems contain very high levels of lead and other toxic elements in violation of EPA limits. "The citizens of America no longer trust cities to provide them with safe, clean water," Adams explained. "Our private testing service allows water consumers to get their water tested from a trusted, accredited, independent science lab that can't be influenced by local city politics." (Three water science officials in Flint, Michigan were recently charged with felony crimes for their part in an alleged science fraud scheme to hide water contamination data from the public.)

Because of increased fracking activity across the nation, many Americans are also concerned about the possible contamination of private well water from fracking-related activities. CWC Labs' water testing service allows individuals to sample their own well water and receive authoritative scientific analysis of metals, minerals and trace element contaminants.

CWC Labs is internationally accredited under ISO 17025 requirements, the "gold standard" for laboratory analytical excellence. The laboratory uses ICP-MS instrumentation and EPA methodologies to conduct an expanded elemental analysis covering all the following elements:

Aluminum (Al)
Arsenic (As)
Cadmium (Cd)
Nickel (Ni)
Lead (Pb)
Copper (Cu)
Mercury (Hg)
Magnesium (Mg)
Iron (Fe)
Potassium (K)
Zinc (Zn)
Manganese (Mn)
Molybdenum (Mo)
Selenium (Se)
Strontium (Sr)
Uranium (U)
Vanadium (V)
Silver (Ag)
Chromium (Cr3)
Cesium (Cs)

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. 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.

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