(NaturalNews) As promised, Natural News has made two important donations toward food transparency and honest labeling for consumers. We've just donated $12,000 to the YES on 522 campaign in support of GMO labeling laws in Washington State.

We also urge all Natural News readers to help support this campaign in any way you can. We're up against some real monsters in this fight. The biotech companies have, predictably, raised millions of dollars to run intentionally deceptive and misleading ads that lie to consumers and try to scare people into thinking that GMO labels would somehow vastly increase the cost of foods. In truth, foods already contain labels and adding the ink on existing labels to comply with the law is a negligible cost.

Confirming this, the ANH-USA health freedom group has just released a study concluding that GMO labeling will cost consumers zero dollars!

If you'd like to help support Initiative 522, check out their website and consider making a donation:

Natural News donates $7,500 to the Institute for Responsible Technology

We have also just issued a donation for the IRT. This donation is part of a matching funds campaign that matched individual donors with money from Natural News. Together, we aim to help Jeffrey Smith and the IRT lead us to victory in this fight for food justice.

By the way, Jeffrey Smith is co-hosting a new GMO mini-summit with John Robbins. You probably haven't heard of it yet, as it's just now starting to be announced.

Other Natural News projects

Compared to the money being pumped into the anti-labeling GMO campaigns right now, these donations we're making may seem small. However, keep in mind that few independent media organizations make substantial donations of any kind whatsoever. Natural News is one of the very few that actually earn enough of a profit to write checks to worthy causes. (And we never ask for donations from readers, you may have noticed.)

More importantly, we are currently making enormous in-house investments (i.e. expenditures) for a breakthrough project that I've already promised will be announced before the end of calendar 2013.

This project is requiring a huge amount of cash to fund, and it will absolutely rock the natural health world (in a good way) when it is released. When you see this announcement sometime before Christmas, you will immediately understand what a gigantic undertaking it is and why it costs so much money. I promise you, this announcement is a true game changer for the industry and it creates unprecedented benefits for health-conscious consumers. This is the kind of project that normally might only be pursued by a national government or a multi-billion-dollar corporation, but we are on track to completing it right here at Natural News. (So stay tuned for the big announcement later this year.)

One more update: We've just completed the deployment of 12 million scientific studies for SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, the internet's largest relational search and research site for scientific studies on foods, nutrients, medicinal herbs, minerals, heavy metals, drug side effects and more. Check that out if you haven't yet seen it. It's the ultimate research site for authors, bloggers, journalists, naturopaths, researchers and more.

As you can see, we're staying very busy producing these projects that have tremendous benefits for the public. All of this is only possible through your support, and especially when you shop at the Natural News Store, where we carry the most heavily scrutinized and lab-tested selection of superfoods, nutritional supplements, herbal supplements and more. Even the FDA recently tested some of our imported raw materials from South America and gave us the thumbs up.

If you're looking for super clean superfoods and nutritional products at competitive prices (with free shipping on orders of $99 or more), check out the Natural News Store.

Thank you for your support, and thank for giving us the resources we need to make donations to worthy causes and pursue these monumental projects that help bring empowerment, awareness and lifelong health to literally tens of millions of people.

You and I are the last line of defense for humanity's future

We, collectively, are the last line of defense for humanity against an industry of death called "biotechnology." Together, we must stand firm in demanding GMO labeling followed by the outlawing of all genetically engineered crops altogether.

Although we are vastly out-spent by powerful, criminally-operated corporations and truly evil "scientists" who are paid to promote biotech interests, we will ultimately win this fight for food justice for the simple reason that they can no longer conceal the truth. Through websites like Natural News and others, we are exposing the truth about what's in food, the toxic practices of conventional agriculture, and the devastating health effects of eating processed, factory-made foods.

Join me in this effort and we shall achieve a lasting victory for not just ourselves, but future generations as well. We are winning because we are on the side of light, love and individual empowerment. We celebrate humankind and seek to protect its future. We are the voices of truth, the spiritual warriors, the activists, the philosophers, the humble scientists and the loving moms and dads who represent the real future of humanity. We shall emerge from this age of darkness, poison and deception to bring a new era of light, liberty and justice to this land.

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.
