Why every Natural News reader should take the free chemistry courses offered by Jason Gibson at MathTutorDVD.com


Chemistry sources

(NaturalNews) If you want to better understand the laboratory results I'm producing at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, it helps if you're familiar with the fundamentals of chemistry, the Periodic Table of Elements and unit conversion.

One of the most frustrating things I've run into as a journalist and forensic food research scientist is the lack of general chemistry knowledge among internet readers. I've found that many people don't know the difference between ppm and ppb concentrations, and they don't realize that 1 ppm is one million times larger than 1 ppt.

This is how, for example, raw food vegans end up concerned about parts per trillion of glyphosate causing cancer while, at the same time, they are drinking zeolites which often contain up to 50-60 parts per million lead.

And when it comes to radioactive isotopes (such as cesium-137), people really get lost. When you're trying to understand Fukushima, nuclear fallout and the contamination of soils, it's important to understand the basic concepts of elemental isotopes, radiation half-life and the affinity of certain elements for other elements.

Sadly, chemistry and physics are usually taught in a boring, academic way that turns off students at an early age. So most people's experience with chemistry and physics is rooted in negative memories.

But I have a solution for you!

Jason Gibson makes learning chemistry, math and physics really fun and interesting

There's an amazing solution you can use right now to learn the fundamentals of chemistry for free.

The website MathTutorDVD.com was created by Jason Gibson. And Gibson is a gifted teacher who makes chemistry "click." (He's also a fellow Texan, it seems.) His website offers many free courses on chemistry, physics and math, and you can also purchase his more extensive DVDs for the full experience.

A few years ago I used Jason Gibson's DVDs as part of my brushing up effort on chemistry before launching the Natural News Forensic Food Lab where I now analyze foods using ICP-MS instrumentation.

I've also taken online chemistry courses from MIT (Open Courseware) and found them to be robotic, mechanical and boringly academic. MIT instructors seem to be very good at memorizing formulas while completely missing the bigger point of what those formulas represent. For example, if you go into the MIT Chemistry 5.11 courses, you'll find instructors who somehow manage to document the formulas for hydrogen atom orbital wave functions without ever helping students visualize those wave function probabilities in a meaningful way.

The result is that you get robotic academics who can "get the right answer" but have no idea what the answers really mean. (Eventually I couldn't even watch the MIT courses anymore because the instructors were so bad, and they seemed to have no concept of the HARMONICS involved in electron cloud distributions and orbitals. Plus, they still think electrons are tiny particles!)

But Jason Gibson is a "connect the dots" kind of teacher who really, truly helps you get your head around concepts in a way that turns all the puzzle pieces into a finished portrait. He can help you learn the basics of chemistry, physics, math or even unit conversion, making you far more "scientifically literate" so that you can understand all these conversations about food composition, heavy metals, glyphosate and even GMOs.

I'm launching a new lab soon, and you'll want to get up to speed on what I'm announcing

My new lab is almost ready, and we've added a large organic chemistry section with an HPLC instrument. Plus, we have an Ion Chromatograph (IC) instrument for detection of iodine, fluoride, chlorine and other halogens.

One of the things we'll be doing with this is testing public water supplies to found out if fluoride concentrations are higher than allowed by law. We'll be reporting these numbers in ppm and ppb, so it's important to know, for example, that 0.050ppm is the same as 50ppb.

We'll also be reporting on pesticide residues in foods, and I'll be talking about concepts like "molecular weight" and "sample mass."

So the more you learn on these concepts, the better you'll be able to follow my announcements and findings in 2016 and beyond.

Get up to speed at MathTutorDVD.com with Jason Gibson. He's the best teacher I've yet seen, and you'll learn these subjects so rapidly that you'll wonder everybody doesn't teach it this way!

P.S. Note to Gibson: If you're interested in coming on my show on TalkNetwork.com -- the Health Ranger Report -- I'd love to interview you about your past work experience and the issue of science literacy in America today. Contact Natural News to set it up.

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.
