(NaturalNews) Natural Health information publisher NaturalNews.com has launched a new online encyclopedia of natural health information called NaturalPedia.com.

NaturalPedia.com combines the wisdom of over 400 authors and 570 books that span over 50,000 unique health concepts, displaying collections of knowledge on specific topics such as "chlorella" (http://www.naturalpedia.com/chlorella.html) or "vitamin D" (http://www.naturalpedia.com/vitamin_D.html).

NaturalPedia also pairs two-term concepts such as "cancer and lycopene" (http://www.naturalpedia.com/C/Cancer-lycopen...) or "diabetes and sugar" (http://www.naturalpedia.com/D/Diabetes-sugar...). Almost any pair of terms relating to nutrition, disease prevention, herbal medicine or natural healing is contained in NaturalPedia.com's over one million web pages.

NaturalPedia is offered free to the world as a research tool for authors, students, researchers, consumers, medical professionals and journalists. It also helps support the authors whose books are cited on the website by publicizing their work, positioning the authors as frequently-quoted experts and linking directly to an Amazon.com page where readers may purchase the complete books to learn more.

Each book included in the site is given a unique page featuring a listing of key concepts covered in the book. See example at: http://www.naturalpedia.com/book_Encyclopedi...

To help users browse other books of interest, NaturalPedia also calculates and recommends conceptually-related books in the right column of each book page.

In all, NaturalPedia.com is a platform that helps inform readers with invaluable health wisdom gleaned from the pages of the industry's top books, but also a place where authors and publishers receive the proper credit for their work as well as free promotion that translates into more book purchases by interested readers.

NaturalPedia.com works hard to protect the intellectual property interests of authors and publishers. The site offers no way for readers to browse or copy the full text of any book. No more than five citations from any one book are used on a concept page, and each book is fully referenced with the authors' names, title and a clickable link to the book page where a "buy at Amazon.com" button is highly visible.

Furthermore, visitors to NaturalPedia.com who use the website for research are specifically reminded that if they use such quotes, they are required to cite the original author and title of the book, in addition to the NaturalPedia.com page.

In this way, NaturalPedia partners with the industry's top authors to publicize and promote their outstanding work while helping share extremely important knowledge with the world.

Finally, NaturalPedia honors book addition and removal requests. Any author or publisher wishing to have their book removed from NaturalPedia may do so with a simple request. Those wishing to have their books added may do so by mailing a physical copy of their book to the Consumer Wellness Center offices in Tucson, Arizona.

NaturalPedia was built over a two-year period by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, editor of NaturalNews.com. Adams designed the entire system, including the linguistic analyzer, the content management system and the conceptual correlation logic. "This was the most difficult technical project I've ever taken on," explained Adams, who also created the content management system that powers NaturalNews.com. "But being able to share this knowledge with the world makes the effort worthwhile."

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.
