Food safety

(NaturalNews) At 10:30 today, the U.S. Senate picks up its debate on the issue of S.510, the "Food Safety and Modernization Act" which is really a wolf in sheep's clothing. It would grant the FDA new, tyrannical powers that could be used to criminalize backyard gardening, outlaw saving seeds, imprison people who sell raw milk and oppress food freedom throughout the country.

The US Senate will recess today from 12:30 - 3:00pm, after which debate on the bill will resume. During that two-and-a-half hour recess, Senators will no doubt be checking in with their offices to hear what their constituents think about this bill. This is your opportunity to be heard by calling your U.S. Senator this morning, before 12:30 Eastern time (or as soon as you can manage it, as every call helps), and voicing your strong opposition to S.510, the Food Safety and Modernization Act.

Call the Capitol Switchboard and ask to be directly connected to your Senator's office: 202-224-3121.

Debate could extend into the weekend

According to comments made on the Senate floor this morning, a weekend session is possible if a vote is not reached on S.510 today.

This is good news for all of us who oppose S.510 because it would give us more time to rally opposition. If the bill cannot be effectively opposed, it might give us time to push for the "Tester Amendment" which would exempt small farms (and presumably backyard gardens, too) from the onerous provisions of S.510.

Senator Harry Reid, who I personally consider to be one of the most corrupt and repugnant human beings to have ever set foot on the US Senate floor, is of course pushing hard for passage of this bill. He uses claims like "No one should have to worry if their salad or sandwich is going to kill them" but conveniently forgets that if the bill passes, people will have to worry about their own government imprisoning them for selling raw milk, seed sprouts, or garden vegetables to their local neighbors and friends.

Extending the reach of cold tyranny is always disguised as saving lives. But make no mistake: This isn't a bill about saving lives, it's about expanding the power of Big Brother to control your gardens, your seeds, your milk, your food and your freedom.

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 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.

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.
