Newspaper headlines around the world are ablaze with the news that the American Heart Association is recommending people stop taking vitamins for heart health. I know I've covered this in another article on this site, but this news from the AHA is receiving so much attention that it deserves a bit more commentary.

The first thing you have to do to understand this news is put the AHA in perspective. This is an organization that has for decades discredited and fought against the use of vitamins. The AHA has even strongly recommended for many years that people avoid virtually all dietary fats, including healthy fats that are unquestionably shown to enhance cardiovascular health. Why would the AHA offer advice that so obviously makes people ill? One reason might be that the AHA receives tremendous funding from pharmaceutical companies, and recommending nutritional supplements that actually enhance the health of patients would go against the financial interests of the pharmaceutical companies that market and sell drugs used to treat the symptoms of cardiovascular disease.

Thus, I believe the AHA is a highly politicized organization that is heavily influenced by the business interests of its primary financial supporters -- Big Pharma. Accordingly, any health advice from the AHA is tainted. In fact, it's worse that that: it's highly destructive advice that will probably land you in the hospital suffering from one or more chronic diseases.

Consider for a moment that physicians who follow the AHA's recommendations on heart disease have for years actually promoted extremely high-carbohydrate diets to their patients. I've met heart patients who were told to consume less than 10 grams a day of fat, and yet they could eat any amount of sugar that they wanted. Get this -- I've seen heart patients avoiding all fat, including the healthy fats like avocados, nuts, seeds, flax oil and so on, while they were consuming massive quantities of donuts, candy bars, sugars, soft drinks and other sweets. When I asked them why they were following such a ridiculous diet, they would turn to me and say, "Doctor's orders!" That's what you get from following the advice of the American Heart Association.

The bottom line to all of this is when the AHA says people should stop taking vitamins, nutritionists like myself who really know about nutrition and the links between foods and disease can only laugh in response. It is ridiculous advice from an organization that has a long history of offering ridiculous advice, and whose advice is probably responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans who have suffered from heart disease and could have lived much longer if they had ignored the AHA.

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.
