(NaturalNews) Enjoy a very, very happy Thanksgiving! You've earned time with your family, away from the rat race of work. We all have so much to be thankful for right now, so it seems appropriate to have a holiday that celebrates it.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

I don't even know where to begin. At the metaphysical level, I'm thanksful for the Creator, for the existence of our universe and for the consciousness we have mysteriously attained. On a more mundane level, I'm thankful for life on our planet, the miracle of seeds, the availability of soil to grow our food, and the incredible abundance of Mother Nature.

On a more personal level, I'm thankful for the amazing healing capabilities of the human body, the astonishing functioning of the human brain (and its interface to the non-physical mind), and for the life we're given to discover more about ourselves and the universe around us. For some reason I still don't quite understand, God gave me the gift of communication, and I am thankful for having been granted that set of abilities which I continue to dedicate to the pursuit of truth and awakening.

I'm also thankful for a great many people -- NaturalNews readers, for example, who are really the cutting edge of informed, conscious thinkers who represent the future of human civilization on our planet. Certain people like Ron Paul deserve special mention for their role in defending the role of liberty in the advancement of human civilization.

What are you thankful for?

It's a great day to stop and consider how fortunate we are to be here, to be conscious beings, to have free will and to still have enough freedom so that we may exercise our First Amendment rights to speak our minds. Modern society is not yet lost, and we still have opportunities to restore liberty in America and around the world. We must work together to protect those fundamental human rights and freedoms, and from that place advance our civilization beyond wars, beyond territorial conflict, beyond the domination desires of the few and into the realm of uplifting human civilization rather than trying to keep it down.

I believe such a time is coming, although there will no doubt be struggles in our immediate future as difficult historical lessons are learned. But even that is, in a way, something to be thankful for because how else can an infantile society mature into adulthood if it does not see the error of its ways and the consequences of its poor choices?

We are living through an extraordinary time, witnessing the reluctant advancement of our own species which I hope may one day achieve something resembling adulthood. In the mean time, each of us must do our own personal best to remember what we have to be thankful for and then use what we have available to positively influence the direction in which humanity is moving.

With that said, enjoy your Thanksgiving! Get plenty of rest, and eat plenty of healthy, nutritious food, because there is much more work yet to be done on this planet. You'll need the calories... :-)

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.
