(NaturalNews) Over the last 18 months, I've been working hard on building a private research library of natural health books, and it has now become an essential research tool for stories that you'll see published here on NaturalNews. The first story using this technology was published yesterday (https://www.naturalnews.com/025495.html).

What's different about my library vs. a conventional library is that if you want to find something in a conventional library, you have to go to index of every book, find the page numbers that might mention the topic you have in mind, and then read those pages to try to find the sentence or two that mentions your topic. In the library I've created, the location of every word in every book is pre-recorded in a database, and by entering the word you're looking for, this system immediately produces a list of all the sentences containing this word across every book in the entire library.

Even better, it works with two keyword phrases as well, so if I want to find all the paragraphs that mention "heart attacks" and "statin drugs," for example, it can do that, too.

The system even conducts a linguistic analysis of the results, determining which results are more relevant, and breaking down the keywords by conceptual classification, such as anatomy, herb, substance, action, medical adjective, disease name, etc.

In essence, what I've created is the world's most useful search engine for searching a private library of books. And it was no easy task: Just buying the books alone cost more than $25,000. Writing the language analysis code took 18 months. The process of creating this whole thing is extraordinarily complex, requiring a tremendous amount of time, effort, programming language coding ability and even storage space (over 4 terabytes so far). The total cost of development is easily a six-figure number.

The advantage of all this, though, is that I can now run a linguistic analysis of any book. For example, take a look at the linguistic analysis of this book The Vitamin D Cure: https://www.naturalnews.com/book_The_Vitamin_...

On this page, you can see that the book contains 56,482 words, 1,386 keyword concepts and 15,005 occurrences of those keyword concepts. You can also see that it focuses primarily in Nutrients, followed by Anatomy, etc. This is all based on a word-for-word linguistic analysis of the book.

This linguistic profile is very different, of course, from Know Your Fats : The Complete Primer for Understanding the Nutrition of Fats, Oils and Cholesterol: https://www.naturalnews.com/book_Know_Your_Fa...

Reading this keyword concept profile is a lot like perusing the table of contents for a book, but in many ways even more helpful because concepts are sorted by their "keyword density" in the book.

I even used this technology to conduct linguistic analysis research that became the basis of my course The Illusion of Disease, which reveals how doctors, journalists and health authorities use linguistic brainwashing techniques to trap patients in a system of medical control. Check out that course here: https://www.naturalnews.com/025396.html

This technology is not for sale

Since releasing the first article using this technology, I've already received requests to sell this technology. Please know this technology is not for sale.

Instead of selling it, I am expanding it, hoping to continue increasing the number of books indexed by this technology to 2,000 while expanding the topics to include green living, the environment, and books on intention and the vibrational nature of the universe (Lynn McTaggart, Bruce Lipton, Greg Bradden, etc.).

By the way, this whole system is very well protected and is not available online, so all you web hackers might as well stop hammering our web server in the hopes of finding and stealing this system. It's not located on our web server.

I wish there were a way for me to put this entire database online for free, and I even had a very early, very limited draft of some pre-rendered pages posted for some time, but in the end, it was decided that any significant portion of the content could not be posted without written permission from every single book author included in the library, and that task is virtually impossible to achieve, especially since we are such a tiny company and don't have the people power to manage such a task.

So for now, the library must stay private. It will be used to conduct research for the stories we're working on. Watch for more great research based on this technology to appear on NaturalNews.com.

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.
