The Governor of Illinois is launching a program to allow its citizens to re-import prescription drugs from not only Canada, but other countries around the world. It's all a part of a growing grassroots effort to give citizens access to more affordable prescription drugs.

A growing number of states like Minnesota, Wisconsin and New Hampshire have officially thumbed their noses at the FDA by creating online resources that actually lists Canadian pharmacies where people can purchase prescription drugs. It's all part of the ongoing debate in which the FDA says all drugs are safe unless they're from Canada, in which case they're dangerous, unless we have a flu vaccine shortage, in which case they're safe, unless it's made from a plant or herb, in which case it just might kill you.

The FDA has vowed to continue protecting American consumers by making sure they pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. Apparently that's great for the U.S. economy unless, of course, you happen to actually live in the U.S.

Drug companies in the United States say they need the higher drug prices to pay for the hundreds of millions of dollars in corporate bonuses handed out to executives. This is called "research and development."

The FDA is threatening to use the courts in an effort to get a judge to declare that purchasing prescription drugs from other countries is illegal. That makes perfect sense. There's nothing in this country made in other countries. I mean, if you go to Wal-Mart, everything there says 'Made in the U.S.A,' doesn't it? The FDA, by the way, still can't produce a single Canadian who has been harmed in any way by Canadian prescription drugs -- that is, in any way worse than how people are normally harmed by prescription drugs in the first place. At the same time, the agency can't produce any Americans who have been harmed by prescription drugs from Canada either, but there are a hundred thousand people falling over dead from using prescription drugs purchased from U.S. pharmacies -- a statistic the FDA conveniently ignores.

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.
