I have made a decision to stop writing feature articles about the Bush Administration, civil liberties and other similar political topics (most of which have been published on the CounterThink website). Although many readers have enjoyed these articles, I've decided to stop putting energy into these topics for two important reasons:

1) It distracts from my primary purpose of writing and sharing information about how people can improve their health and quality of life through nutrition, superfoods, exercise, natural health therapies, etc.

2) These freedom topics are already well covered by excellent writers on sites like www.CommonDreams.org, www.Truthout.org and even the Libertarian-oriented www.LewRockwell.com (a popular site among Noam Chomsky fans). Although my own views and writing are perhaps just as compelling, I believe my energy and efforts are more needed in the area of natural health, where there are not so many qualified writers to cover the issues.

Barring some major historical political event, I plan to avoid the temptation to comment on these topics and, instead, focus on bringing more positive, productive natural health information to as many people as possible.

In case you're wondering, no, I haven't been visited by men in black and threatened with a "tropical vacation" to Guantanamo Bay if I didn't censor my own work. Although our civil liberties are clearly under attack by our own government, we still apparently have the right to exercise Free Speech, because I know of no reports of Internet "freedom" writers being threatened, arrested or disappeared. As long as guys like Alex Jones (www.PrisonPlanet.com), Jeff Rense (www.Rense.com), G. Edward Griffin (www.RealityZone.com) and Paul Craig Roberts (www.vdare.com/roberts/index.htm) can exercise their free speech, we are apparently still enjoying the sacred protections of the First Amendment. (Protections that should never be taken for granted, by the way.)

I don't mean to imply that there is no current threat to our freedoms, because clearly there is, but I believe that other internet writers are covering the topic with sufficient expertise and passion, and that my own contributions in that arena are largely redundant.

Should things change in a significant way, I do of course reserve the right to rejoin the political commentary arena, but for now, I am cautiously optimistic that the American people will come to their senses, wake up from this six-year bad dream, and restore their rights, liberties and freedoms in the coming elections.

In the mean time, I shall continue to work on nutrition education programs that aim to improve the physical health and mental health of children, expectant mothers, senior citizens and people of all ages and nationalities. In a very real sense, one of the best ways to help us all find lasting peace and freedom is to promote health, nutrition and avoidance of prescription drugs and other toxic chemicals. The healthier we are as citizens of our respective nations, the more positive our decisions will be in all areas: political, ecological, sociological, etc.

Imagine, for example, how our own political circumstances might be different today if our political leaders weren't on prescription drugs and actually had balanced emotional health stemming from better nutrition. And imagine how differently the American voters might have voted if they, too, had more emotional stability and mental clarity -- effects that can be readily achieved through natural health and nutrition.

In other words, never underestimate the power of really good health information to transform society. Health and freedom go hand in hand. Good health among citizens naturally supports a freer society.

I thank you for your continued readership, and I look forward to bringing you honest, independent health news and information in the years ahead.

To your health,
- Mike Adams

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.
