What's new in the world of natural health: Hydroponic living produce, Don't Eat Cancer and One Degree Organic Foods

Living produce

(NaturalNews) The rapid expansion of the natural health industry is taking the world by storm. More and more people are reading food labels now and demanding products with clean labels, low heavy metals and organic certification.

Here's a wrap-up of some recent launches: Two new books, a new "living produce" IndieGoGo project, a new protein and an amazing new organic cereal company with stunning transparency for its raw materials.

Green PolkaDot Box founder launches living produce project

Rod Smith, the CEO of Green PolkaDot Box (an organic, non-GMO online grocery retailer) has just announced a new effort to launch what he calls "Living Produce."

Described in this video on IndieGoGo, the project is based on a breakthrough hydroponic food production technology that can literally feed the world nutritious living produce at a lower cost than using conventional organics.

The company plans to produce fresh produce on a large scale, then deliver that produce to its customers via the existing GPDB retail infrastructure. The result is that customers across the country will receive fresh, living produce with root systems intact, via GPDB shipments.

Ultra-clean Sacha Inchi protein launched by Boku Superfood

As Natural News readers know very well, organic rice proteins sold across the U.S. in retailers like Whole Foods are contaminated with lead, cadmium and tungsten. But aggressive efforts are under way by the industry to clean up its products and launch substantially cleaner formulations.

I was recently sent protein samples from Healthforce, for example, which showed considerable reductions in lead and cadmium (roughly 50% lower, if I recall), demonstrating that the company's products being rolled out to store shelves are headed in the right direction. (I tested the new products myself in the lab.) More good news is coming out soon on the improved formulations from Healthforce, a company which has been very responsive to customer demands for cleaner products. (Thumbs up to Jameth Sheridan for that!)

The Boku Superfood company, meanwhile, has launched an ultra-clean Sacha Inchi protein that tested extremely clean in the Natural News Forensic Food Labs.

Sacha Inchi is the front edge of a new wave of proteins that are highly nutritious, slightly nutty in flavor and substantially cleaner in terms of heavy metals. This Boku product is a truly innovative formulation, and it's available now from Boku. Click here for their product page.

ONE Degree Organic Foods

I love this new cereal company! ONE Degree Organic Foods, based in Canada, is probably going to win an Editor's Choice award this year from Natural News. The company has created an ultra-transparent product formulation model that represents what I think ALL food should be.

For starters, there's a scannable URL symbol on the front of the box that opens up a web page giving you the source of every ingredient used in the cereal. That alone is astonishing -- and I believe it's an industry first. The back panel of the cereal box lists the actual source and contact name of every key ingredient used in the cereal -- also an industry first.

In a world where Monsanto and its evil cohorts like General Mills and PepsiCo are desperately trying to keep consumers in the dark about what they're eating, it's delightfully refreshing to see a company like ONE Degree Organic Foods going out of its way to keep customers fully informed of ingredients and their origins.

This is the way foods should be formulated and marketed: with full transparency. The ONE Degree food company is truly making history with its commitment to that transparency.

Their cereals, by the way, are available at Green PolkaDot Box which has an affiliate relationship with Natural News. (We support this retailer because they are strictly non-GMO, making them even better than Whole Foods in terms of product honesty.)

Two new books: Don't Eat Cancer and "14 and Out"

Finally, here are two new books that deserve a mention:

Don't Eat Cancer is a fantastic guide to preventing cancer through informed food choice.

This book empowers you with the latest advances in nutrition-based cancer prevention, and it warns you about all those food additives and chemicals that cause cancer. I consider this a must-read guide for anyone who wants to stay out of the cancer clinics for life!

14 and Out is a powerful guide to help smokers quit their addictions and regain control over their health. I wrote the foreword for this book and I've seen the power of this information to help smokers quit for good. If you are battling with a nicotine addiction (or know someone who is), this is the book to give them.

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.
