Cost of prescription drugs to treat colon cancer are skyrocketing beyond belief. Adding just a few months to patients' lives can cost as much as $31,000 per patient in drug costs alone. And that means big profits for pharmaceutical companies.

As always, the American consumer is getting shafted by Big Pharma, which continues to claim that such sky-high prices are necessary to fund R&D. It's a lie, of course: far more money goes into advertising and promotion than R&D, and the exact same drugs are frequently available at a fraction of the U.S. price when purchased overseas or through online pharmacies. But of course, drug companies and the FDA are doing everything they can to make sure Americans can't buy drugs from overseas.

All this is a moot point anyway: colon cancer can be prevented and even cured with treatment options costing a tiny fraction of what these prescription drugs cost. Prevention is dirt-cheap, and most colon cancer could be easily prevented by changes in diet that eliminate processed foods and cancer-causing ingredients like sodium nitrite (found in virtually all packaged meat products) and red meat.

Better yet, colon cancer can frequently be reversed through treatment with superfoods like spirulina, chlorella, broccoli sprouts and The Ultimate Meal. Medicinal herbs like graviola and healing foods like garlic, ginger and onions can also help reverse colon cancer.

It's your choice: you can spend $31,000 on dangerous anti-cancer chemotherapy drugs that add a few months to your life, or you can spend less than $1,000 on medicinal herbs, superfoods, and healing foods that actually help your own immune system cure your cancer for life. Of course, the natural approach only works if you stop eating those cancer-causing foods that gave you the disease in the first place: red meat, fried foods, fast food, soft drinks, refined white sugar, white flour, hydrogenated oils and so on. If you want to be free of cancer, you have to permanently take these out of your diet starting right now -- no exceptions. Plus, you have to engage in regular physical exercise like jogging, walking, swimming or doing Pilates or yoga. To top it off, go see a naturopathic physician who can give you more personalized recommendations for how to prevent and reverse colon cancer.

Preventing colon cancer is actually very easy. All you have to do is decide to take care of your body and stop giving yourself cancer through poor lifestyle choices.

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 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.

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.
