Alternative news

(NaturalNews) NaturalNews.com was recently named the fourth largest alternative news website in the world by the DBKP Report (http://deathby1000papercuts.com/dbkpreport/2...). NaturalNews delivers daily news, commentary and satire on natural health, alternative medicine and health freedom topics, calling into question the government's stance on vaccines, health care and pharmaceuticals while offering practical and useful information on natural cures, herbal remedies and nutritional therapies that really work to prevent and even cure degenerative disease.

The No. 1 alternative news website, according to Alexa rankings, is Alex Jones' Info Wars (www.InfoWars.com), which also reprints many NaturalNews stories (with permission), especially when those stories intersect with issues of liberty and freedom (such as stories about the TSA, the government / pharma connection, etc.). InfoWars.com has experienced a huge surge in popularity recently due to the appearance of Charlie Sheen on Alex Jones' radio show, where Charlie let loose with an over-the-top rage on numerous topics.

Second and third in the rankings were "Above Top Secret" and "Dr. Bruce Maccabee Research Website."

Continuing down the rankings are sites such as AlterNet, The Raw Story, and Rense.com.

Considerably lower in the rankings are sites such as OpEdNews, which recently announced it would no longer publish stories questioning the official government line on vaccines. This most likely means that site's rankings will fall even further as alternative news readers realize it has adopted the government's pro-vaccine stance and is now parroting Big Pharma's position on vaccines (including claiming Dr Wakefield has been discredited for fabricating research data, an allegation which is factually and provably false).

Why the alternative media is important in a free society

Here at NaturalNews, we are honored to be part of the extremely important alternative media -- perhaps the last place on the planet where intelligent journalism is still taking place on issues such as liberty, the coming economic collapse, vaccines, health freedom and other similar topics. While there is a lot of diversity (and even disagreement) among the sites in the "alternative media," here at NaturalNews we feel that the presence of the alternative media is absolutely vital to freedom -- especially since the mainstream media has, for the most part, abandoned real journalism in favor of corporate-scripted "agendalism." (There are exceptions, of course, but most conventional media reports are scripted by profit-driven corporations and packaged for consumption with a particular profit motive in mind...)

NaturalNews.com currently carries an Alexa rating of 3557, which varies day to day depending on the news cycle. Much NaturalNews content is actually found on sister websites such as www.NaturalNews.TV (which serves up to 1.2 million video views each month), www.CounterThink.com (health freedom cartoons) and www.NaturalPedia.com a natural health research website.

NaturalNews content is headed up by Mike Adams, the editor of the site, who does everything from writing articles to producing videos (www.FoodInvestigations.com), running a nutrition-oriented non-profit center (www.ConsumerWellness.org) and composing and performing popular hi-hop music on alternative topics (www.NaturalNews.com/Music). Adams is a Libertarian-minded health freedom advocate who used to be diseased but cured himself of borderline obesity and diabetes using nutritional therapies without a doctor.

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.
