Natural News is a science-based natural health advocacy organization led by activist-turned-scientist Mike Adams, the Health Ranger.
The key mission of Natural News is to empower consumers with factual information about the synthetic chemicals, heavy metals, hormone disruptors and other chemicals found in foods, medicines, personal care products, children's toys and other items.
Natural News covers holistic health, nutritional therapies, consciousness and spirituality, permaculture , organics, animal rights, environmental health, food and superfoods , and performance nutrition.
The site strongly criticizes drugs-and-surgery medicine, vaccines, corporate corruption, animal testing, the use of humans for medical experiments, the chemical contamination of foods, heavy metals in consumer products, factory farming and government corruption.
Natural News also warns its readers about science gone bad and frequently cites examples of science resulting in catastrophies that it calls "crimes" against humanity. Examples of such subjects cited by Natural News include:

Mike Adams, the editor of NaturalNews.com, is the executive director of the Consumer Wellness Center . It is a non-paid position. The Consumer Wellness Center donates 100% of its contributions to programs that teach nutrition education and gardening education to women and children around the world.

Natural News has helped raise millions of dollars for what it considers to be "worthy causes" such as documentary films and legal defense funds for farmers who have been raided by the government for producing raw milk.
In addition, Natural News makes its own cash donations to many important causes. Over the years, Natural News has either raised money for or donated directly to all the following causes:
In addition, Natural News has also helped publicize numerous authors including Dr. Suzanne Humphries, author of "Dissolving Illusions" and Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, author of, "Science Set Free."
In 2010, Natural News launched TV.naturalnews.com, it's own "private YouTube " that allows users to upload and view videos.
The site currently features over 23,000 videos uploaded by users and serves up approximately one million video views per month.
In 2006, Natural News (then NewsTarget.com) launched four reference websites that featured well-referenced details on the healing properties of foods, herbs and nutritional supplements. (The sites have not been updated since their launch, however.)
Those sites are:
In addition, Natural News launched the "Honest Food Guide" as a healthy alternative
to the USDA's Food Guide Pyramid. That food guide, now outdated, is still available
In 2013, Natural News launched SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a very large relational research database based on ten million scientific studies whose abstracts are collected in the PubMed resources of the National Library of Medicine.
Mike Adams (the Health Ranger) programmed the relational indexing and tokenization algorithms for the project, drawing on his background in the software industry. Unique to the site is the ability to see relationships between any two concepts (such as Vitamin D and breast cancer), then quickly view a list of all the available scientific studies on those two topics.
SCIENCE.naturalnews.com currently covers over 8,000 concepts spanning nutrients, diseases, drug side effects, synthetic chemicals, phytochemicals , amino acids, sweeteners, diets, medical concepts, holistic health therapies and environmental science terms.
Mike Adams promises to continue expanding SCIENCE.naturalnews.com to cover 20 million scientific studies while adding more qualitative relational algorithms to allow readers to easily find relationships of concepts among the "noise" of free-form scientific abstracts.
In 2013, Natural News launched BLOGS.naturalnews.com and immediately signed up over 500 writers who now post content covering recipes, how-to articles, nutritional tips and more.
BLOGS.naturalnews.com was founded on the principle of sharing revenues with content creators. Writers who contribute to BLOGS.naturalnews.com earn 100% of the ad revenues for the top ad position above the article. Other suboordinate ad positions on the page earn revenues for Natural News, which makes the service available for free.
In 2013, Natural News launched its Forensic Food Laboratory with Mike Adams as its director.
The Forensic Food Laboratory currently owns a high-powered digital microscope with videography capabilities that Adams has used to conduct microscopy investigations of everyday foods (and other objects).
To date, the Natural News Forensic Food Lab has published photos and videos on:
Adams has also hinted at the release of upcoming videos on breakfast cereals being manipulated on camera using high-powered magnets.
Adams promises that the Natural News Forensic Food Lab will be expanded to include more testing and investigations equipment.
Natural News stories are frequently copied and posted by other alternative news organizations, including Infowars.com, DailyPaul.com and a variety of other sites spanning subjects as diverse as the environment, liberty, self-sufficiency and vaccines.
Over 30,000 unique domains currently link in to Natural News, including thousands of university and government domains.
