Be careful what you ask for. Loren Root was obese, weighing in at 330 pounds, and wanted to lose weight. But after undergoing expensive gastric bypass surgery, Loren found herself unable to eat enough to maintain any weight at all, and she quickly slipped to a dangerous 87 pounds in total body weight. It's yet another horror story about the dangers of gastric bypass surgery -- dangers that surgeons who perform such procedures hardly ever reveal to their patients.

Gastric bypass surgery is rapidly gaining in popularity, and it's marketed to customers as an effortless solution to losing weight. The idea is seductive: after the surgery, you'll automatically lose weight, without even trying. But in reality, gastric bypass surgery is a house of horrors.

First, it's a barbaric procedure that maims patients for life. You can never go back to having a normal digestive system after undergoing gastric bypass surgery. Even more frightening, studies show that patients are just as unhealthy following the procedure as they were before it, even when they lose weight. That's because bypassing your stomach doesn't make you a healthy person, even if it does force you to eat less. To be healthy, you have to avoid eating processed foods and start supplementing your diet with vitamins, minerals, healing herbs, healing foods and superfoods. Plus, you have to engage in regular physical exercise. There are no shortcuts.

Anybody can lose weight if they get back to natural health and start honoring their body rather than destroying it. And ripping it open in order to rearrange your digestive system is no way to honor your body. In fact, it's more like declaring war on your body. You can't expect to be healthy when you've declared war on your body, folks.

Skip the scalpels. Avoid gastric bypass surgery at all costs. Find other, more natural ways to lose weight. Yes, it will take effort. Yes, it will mean giving up all those comfort foods and spending perhaps 2 - 3 hours each day in order to engage in physical exercise and other health-enhancing activities. But look on the bright side: you get to keep your stomach!

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.

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.

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.
