(NaturalNews) In previous articles here on NaturalNews, I've criticized Olympian Michael Phelps for promoting McDonald's fast food and sugary breakfast cereals to children. I've also reported on Phelps' atrocious diet of processed foods and the astonishing fact that his own mother designed nutrition programs at a middle school in Maryland where she serves as the Principal. But rather than merely criticizing Phelps, I think it's important to educate the young man about a better solution than junk foods: Superfoods and plant-based nutrition!

In this article, you'll read my message for Phelps where I urge him to turn to superfoods nutrition if he wants to do well in the 2012 Olympics. I also volunteer my own services as his nutrition coach, and I even offer to retract my criticism articles on NaturalNews if he will announce an end to his promotions of junk foods.

Here's the message to Phelps:

Michael Phelps: You can still be a hero to America!

Here's a message straight to Michael Phelps: It's not too late for you to be a true hero! You can end your endorsements of junk foods and hold a press conference, announcing you will from now on limit your endorsements to those products that receive approval from an advisory board of informed nutritionists (or a similar group). You can transcend your tremendous victories as an athlete and become a multi-faceted champion for health, serving as a role model for hundreds of millions of children around the world.

And if you choose to pursue this route of socially-responsible endorsements, you will even transcend the other celebrities who have failed to make such responsible choices, positioning yourself as a champion among champions -- a person who not only has astounding athletic skills, but who also has an open heart and a sense of compassion for fellow human beings.

Michael Phelps, if you make the choice to end your promotions of junk foods and processed foods -- and instead promote healthful foods for children -- NaturalNews will retract our previous stories about you and write a glowing review of how you have transformed both inside and outside the Olympics, becoming a true role model for your many fans.

Here at NaturalNews, we can't financially compete with a million-dollar deal from Kellogg's, but with our option, you get your ethics back, too. The entire natural health community, I'm sure, is urging you to reconsider your endorsements, and should you choose to do so, you could emerge as a remarkable champion worth so much more to the world than mere money.

Here's a bonus: You want to kick butt in the 2012 Olympics? The diet you've been eating is holding you back. If you switch to a diet of superfoods and plant-based nutrients, your performance can take a quantum leap forward. If you really want to go down in history as the best swimmer ever -- and perhaps win NINE gold medals in 2012, superfoods nutrition is the the missing piece that will get you there.

At age 23, junk food seems like it doesn't affect you. But believe me, it does. And at age 27, it will clobber you. Your swimming career depends on you maximizing your nutrition, and you can't do that eating McDonald's, Corn Flakes and pizza.

In fact, I personally volunteer to be your nutrition advisor, should you ever want to take me up on that offer. No charge. I don't have anything against you personally, Michael, but if you continue to use your celebrity status to promote junk foods, you will never be a true role model. Yet, if you make the choice to leave the Dark Side and embrace honest nutrition (for yourself and for others), you can be a multi-faceted champion the world will never forget.

Do you want to be remembered as the Olympian who won eight gold medals and then bombed out in 2012 while cashing in on junk food endorsements? Or do you want to be a repeat world champion who serves as an inspiration to millions, both in and out of the pool?

The world will respond to your choices. YOU are the one who determines whether the response is positive or negative. You are writing your own history now. I urge you to use this opportunity to MAKE history. Transcend your sport. Become a champion of a human being for people everywhere! Ditch the junk foods. Endorse healthful foods. Earn the right to remain a celebrated human being.

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.
