Food science

(NaturalNews) We're on a reduced publishing schedule through January 1, but I wanted to update you with the latest developments here at Natural News.

As you know, we are just two weeks away from our groundbreaking announcements on food science. Our announcements are on schedule and will begin January 7, 2014. They will continue through that week, with several new mini-documentary videos, feature story announcements as well as unscripted videos from the lab.

Not everything is being announced in just one day. These are complex, high-level scientific breakthroughs that require considerable explanation to convey. It's going to take us the entire week to get all the important announcements released, so plan to see breakthrough announcements on January 7, January 8, January 9 and beyond.

Routine heavy metals testing is about to become obsolete

There has been speculation that our announcements center around heavy metals testing of foods, superfoods and dietary supplements. If that were the entire story, these wouldn't be huge breakthroughs, as metals testing of products is rather routine. What we have pioneered and documented is far beyond routine heavy metals testing, and in fact some of what we are going to announce will make the entire industry of heavy metals testing of foods (as it is practiced today) obsolete. That doesn't mean heavy metals testing isn't valuable in a certain context, but as we will show, the way heavy metals testing is conducted today with food and dietary supplements is truly obsolete and paints a wildly distorted picture of dietary risks vs. health benefits.

Here's another clue: One small part of what we are announcing will make Proposition 65 obsolete as well. The law will need to be completely re-written. Manufacturers of food-based supplements and superfoods will be elated to learn why this is the case. In fact, virtually the entire superfoods industry is going to be incredibly excited and even amazed at the scientific research we are about to unveil in two weeks. As we will prove, Prop 65 is a disastrous law based on junk science which is now irretrievably outdated and can be easily proven to be misleading to consumers.

All this begins on January 7 and continues throughout 2014. (It's going to be a busy year for us here at Natural News...)

Busting myths in the foods, superfoods and nutritional supplements industry

As much as our overall research is great news for the natural products industry, we've also blown apart many myths that have been promoted for years (or decades) across that industry. Some of the announcements we'll be making in 2014 reveal scientific proof that some health myths related to dietary substances are pure fantasy.

I can't give you all the details yet because I need to show you the full data set along with explanations, but there are many claims which have been made about some dietary substances which are simply not true. Some of these myths have been propagated around the natural products industry for so long -- and repeatedly quoted by "experts" -- that they are assumed to be true. Yet our research reveals that they are not true at all. Some of these myths have been promoted by well-known holistic doctors.

My aim in busting these myths is not to embarrass anyone who has been promoting them, but to provide you with truly empowering, ACCURATE information about the health benefits of natural substances without misleading you by parroting popular myths that have been bouncing around the industry for years. My aim is to give you the truth about natural products without wishful embellishment that isn't based on substantiated truths.

Because one of the things I've found in all this research is that natural product formulators are often just "wildly guessing" about the efficacy of their products. Through meticulous research, I have been able to discover that many of the most highly-touted products in certain categories are actually not every effective at all... and there are far more effective substances that accomplish the same goals at a significantly lower cost.

All this information is going to be shared with you publicly. If you'd like to be among the very first to learn this information, subscribe to my email newsletter using the form below this article. Our email subscribers get all this information first. (I usually send the email newsletter at around midnight each night, meaning you'll have it in your inbox usually before 6 am.)

It all starts in two weeks

Overall, this information is going to change the way you shop, change the way you eat, change the way you order food at restaurants and radically improve your physical health, mental health and quality of life. Thank you for your patience as we have been intensely engaged in the high-level chemistry and atomic spectroscopy necessary to develop and document this breakthrough science.

None of this has been easy. For several months, I have personally spent 12-hour days in the lab doing things like developing methodologies, testing concentration variabilities and running what now amounts to thousands of samples of foods, superfoods and nutritional supplements. This research takes a tremendous amount of time, money and effort to conduct.

There has already been conspiracy speculation on how we were able to access the hugely expensive instrumentation necessary to conduct this research, but the simple (and boring) answer is that we funded this from your purchases at the Natural News Store. We collected the profits from that effort, in other words, and instead of stuffing them into our own pockets, we made huge investments in food science research that's now just two weeks from changing our world for the better.

For the record, we've had NO government funding, NO third-party investors, NO corporate sponsorship of the research, NO grant money, and so on. This has all been accomplished in-house and thanks to the support of our readers and our advertisers. So I thank you for your generous support, and I invite you to sign up for our email newsletter (below) to receive all these groundbreaking announcements beginning January 7.

Until then, enjoy the holidays!

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.
