Toxic elements

(NaturalNews) I'd like to thank all the Natural News readers for your support as I'm engaged in intensive laboratory research and not posting very many stories right now. This will continue through early January up until we break our big announcements on food science.

You may have heard some rumors that I discovered I've been exposed to a chronic, accumulative, low level of toxic elements (poisons) over the last couple of years. This rumor is true, and over the last several months, I have been able to identify the sources of those poisons and remove them from my diet and my environment. Some of these poisons are still coming out of my hair and urine, but overall levels have dropped dramatically. At no time were the exposures acute. I'm talking about an ongoing low level of exposure that builds up over time, not an emergency level at any one time.

What's shocking is that I was being exposed to these toxic elements even though I thought I was living a pristine lifestyle with an incredibly clean "organic" diet rich in superfoods and supplements. It turns out that many organic foods are a total myth because they're incredibly contaminated. More on this point in future articles...

What's also shocking is that you, too, are almost certainly being chronically poisoned in the way I was being poisoned, and details on all this will be forthcoming as part of our announcements in 2014. I can assure you that you are being exposed to surprising levels of cadmium, lead, mercury, copper, aluminum and even uranium -- another element that I am now finding at trace levels in nearly all food. (And yes, I will report more details on that later, too... we are all eating FALLOUT!)

Just to give you concrete examples of some of what was going on, here's some of what affected me personally over the last few months:

• I was being poisoned with cadmium from eating USDA certified organic jerky product. It contained 4,000 ppb cadmium. (Fortunately I didn't eat much of it.) I was also being poisoned with cadmium found in organic brown rice at 3,000 ppb.

• Shockingly, I was being poisoned with lead from growing and eating my own sprouts. Through analytical testing, I discovered that these sprouts contained 400 ppb of lead due to the seeds coming from an unclean source. This was absolutely astonishing because I always assumed sprouts were healthy. It turns out they can also be toxic if the seeds are contaminated. Unless I had access to my own lab, I never would have gone to the trouble of testing sprouts for lead.

• I was being poisoned with high levels of aluminum from a dietary supplement that almost no one realizes is loaded with aluminum. In detailed laboratory testing, I was able to show that this substance releases massive amounts of aluminum into the GI tract, drastically raising blood aluminum levels and also increasing aluminum levels in urine. I've gone to great lengths to try to avoid exposure to aluminum, so this finding was especially disturbing.

Thankfully, all these exposures were of relatively low levels, and because my diet is so rich in healthful nutrients, botanicals and whole foods, I was able to eliminate these toxic elements rather quickly once I nailed down the sources of exposure. The truly shocking thing is that as the toxic metals came out, my brain "awakened" and my outlook on life shifted dramatically. On the physical side, you may have noticed from my lab photo that I've slimmed down considerably as my body weight is coming back into healthful balance.

I will share much more of this story with you in January, when we launch a series of breakthroughs in food science and environmental medicine. These findings on toxins in our food are one small part of what we have in store for you.

Why it's crucial that I share this information with you

This experience of discovering I was being poisoned by "healthy" foods and products has made an enormous impact on my mission for Natural News readers and fans. I've come to realize that it is crucial that I share these findings with you so that you can avoid the chronic poisoning under which we are all suffering. And while eating organic food was exposing me to low levels of toxins, people who eat conventional processed foods are being poisoned to a far greater degree -- with devastating results for their health.

We will not survive as a civilization if we do not reverse the chronic poisoning of our food, our planet, our farms, our bodies and our own children. As part of what we are unveiling in 2014, I will also be presenting critical findings to you about high levels of toxic elements found in off-the-shelf products. On the positive side, I'll also let you know which products we are discovering to be incredibly clean and safe to consume in very large quantities. (By the way, one of these is any hemp product from Nutiva. All the Nutiva products we've tested are ridiculously clean.)

I feel incredibly blessed that I have been granted the intellectual and financial capacity to have identified these toxic exposures in my own life, and now the next most important step is sharing these findings with you. Your support of Natural News and our Natural News Store has made this possible, so thank you for your generous support.

Get ready for a whirlwind of mind-blowing information from Natural News in 2014. We are going to empower you with new findings, knowledge, wisdom and a wealth of data that will revolutionize your life for the better. What I've hinted at here just barely scratches the surface of what we will be unveiling in just one month!

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.
