(NaturalNews) There has been some chatter about our 2010 New Year's Product Discount Guide (https://www.naturalnews.com/Report_Health_Pro...) that deserves clarification. Some readers have inadvertently leaped to the incorrect conclusion that products or companies listed in the guide are being endorsed by myself or NaturalNews. This is definitely not the case. Although many of the products in the guide do receive my voluntary endorsement (such as Boku Superfood), merely being listed in the guide is in no way a personal endorsement from myself (the Health Ranger) or NaturalNews.

Companies did not pay anything to be included in the guide. The only real qualification was that they needed to offer a substantial discount to NaturalNews readers, and they needed to offer a natural health-related product. This was done simply as a service to NaturalNews readers who had been asking us for discount product listings. It required a tremendous amount of time and effort on the part of NN staff to put this guide together. We did this solely as a benefit to you, our readers.

I have now updated the discount guide pages to include a disclaimer which explains that being listed in the guide is not an "endorsement" by myself or NaturalNews.

If I ever publish a guide compromised of my top recommended products and services, I will call it something like the Health Ranger's Top Recommended Products Guide or something similar. But this discount guide carries no such name and no such implication.

It is simply a listing of health-related product and service companies that are offering discounts to NaturalNews readers. We don't sell the products listed in the guide, nor do I personally vouch for them all (although I do voluntarily endorse many of the listed products, independent from this report).

One of the things I've learned from being NaturalNews editor is that some readers at times leap to the conclusion that everything appearing on NaturalNews.com is somehow personally endorsed by me. That's simply not the case: There are articles written by other authors that I don't agree with, there are comments posted by readers I don't agree with, and there are ads that appear above the articles that I sometimes think are just crazy (that's Google for ya...).

If there's something I personally endorse, you'll know it because I'll state it up front and without hesitation: "I personally endorse this ___" whatever it happens to be... Pure Synergy, Cherry Flex, Living Fuel, Ola Loa, etc.

If I don't make such a statement about something, then I'm not endorsing it. Just because something shows up under the web domain of NaturalNews.com doesn't mean the Health Ranger recommends it.

Just because I don't endorse a product doesn't mean it's bad, however. It may be that I haven't yet had the opportunity to try it. It might be that I'll endorse it later after I learn more about it. One thing that's always true about my product endorsements is that I am never paid to endorse a product. I have never, in my entire life, received even a single dollar in exchange for my endorsement of any product, service or company. All of my endorsements are 100% authentic and based on genuine personal experience. That's why they are so valued in the industry. You can't buy the Health Ranger's endorsement!

So please enjoy the discount guide we assembled for you. It contains listings of some fantastic products offered at great discounts for NaturalNews readers. Just don't assume I am personally recommending every listing in the entire guide. Thanks for understanding and for reading this clarification.

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.
