FDA bans cosmetic makers from using brain and spinal cord tissue as protection from mad cow disease

The cosmetics industry is one of great duality: on one hand, their products help make people appear visually pleasing. On the other hand, the ingredients used to make those cosmetics are horrifying, if not downright gruesome. If most people knew what they were putting on their face and lips every day, they'd probably vomit -- some of those ingredients include spinal cord and brain tissue from cow carcasses. And that's not to mention all the toxic chemicals used in such products: artificial fragrances, petroleum products, solvents and many more.

In an effort to protect the public from the risk of contracting mad cow disease from the use of cosmetics, the FDA -- an agency never too quick to do anything in the interests of public health -- has finally told cosmetic makers they can no longer use these potentially tainted ingredients in their products.

Cosmetics makers, however, insist that when they use spinal cord tissue and brain matter from dead cows, such ingredients are already certified free of BSE (mad cow disease). But that can't possibly be true, since the USDA has actually threatened to sue companies that test their cows for BSE. This is the USDA's strategy for ensuring that U.S. cows are healthy: simply ban all private testing, and make sure all BSE tests are run in your own in-house lab where test results can be manipulated to make sure no cows turn up positive.

Let's talk about cosmetics in general for a moment. This is a huge class of products that are dangerous to consumers, ridiculously overpriced, and not needed by people who are healthy in the first place. Want to make your skin look younger? Change your diet. Avoid all metabolic disruptors, stop eating all processed foods, get a daily dose of healthy natural sunlight (yes, sunlight is GOOD for your skin!) and supplement your diet with a daily dose of superfoods. Your skin will shine!

Want your lips to be red? You don't need lipstick, you need blood circulation. And you get that by engaging in daily cardiovascular exercise, breathing exercises and eating foods like ginger and red peppers.

Want to smell good? Don't bathe your body in the cancer-causing chemicals found in perfumes and colognes, and stop poisoning your armpits with commercial deodorants that are loaded with aluminum (a nerve toxin). Stop eating junk food, fast food and soft drinks. Avoid all dietary toxins, and your body smell will greatly improve in a matter of months.

See, I'm a believer in looking good from the inside, not by covering your body with pastes and creams to try to spruce up a system that's actually diseased. If you want to be healthy, it all starts with nutrition and physical exercise. Cosmetics are not necessary at all. In fact, they harm your health (and waste your money, too).

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.
