New Health Ranger video shatters Whole Foods illusion; chain caught selling overpriced products containing heavy metals, pesticides

Whole Foods

(NaturalNews) It's the nation's largest natural and organic retailer, and for many people it's the best place in town to pick up some organic vegetables and a nice, juicy, grass-fed steak for dinner. But is Whole Foods Market really everything it claims to be in terms of providing safe, clean food to its customers?

In a new video report, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, breaks down what he says is a pattern of deceit at Whole Foods Market that should cause every health-conscious consumer to pause and consider what and whom they're supporting every time they visit a store. From selling products contaminated with heavy metals and pesticides, to "greenwashing" conventional products that are sold in other stores for far less money, Whole Foods Market is under increasing scrutiny these days.

Adams says that tests he has conducted in his Forensics Food Lab – many of the results of which are published in his new book Food Forensics – reveal that Whole Foods Market may not be keeping such close tabs on the integrity of its products as it would like us all to believe.

While it's true that heavy metal and pesticide contamination is difficult to avoid in almost any product these days – this, due to pesticide drift and widespread use of these poisons throughout the environment – claiming that the products in its stores contain "Nothing Artificial, Ever" is just one of the many concerning marketing approaches that Whole Foods Market seems to use as an excuse to mark up the costs of its products and claim them as superior to other products sold elsewhere.

The full video where Adams breaks this down in his own words is available here.

Whole Foods Market supported 'DARK' Act 2.0 preempting state GMO labeling laws

There are many things that Whole Foods Market has done right over the years – its strict Quality Standards program, unacceptable food ingredients restrictions, and "Responsibly Grown" guidelines being among these, not to mention how the company has expanded the organic market simply by its large and growing footprint. But there are also things Whole Foods Market has done wrong, according to Adams.

Most recently, Whole Foods Market jumped on board the Roberts-Stabenow "GMO labeling" bill that, instead of actually requiring GMO labels in the traditional printed way, will mandate that confusing QR codes be emblazoned on product packaging that only the "techiest" consumers with advanced smartphones are able to decipher.

At the same time, the Roberts-Stabenow bill, also known as the Monsanto "DARK" Act 2.0, nullifies state-level GMO labeling laws like those in Vermont, which were supposed to go into effect last month, from being legally enforced. In other words, it was a Trojan Horse bill to actually stop functional GMO labeling at the state and national levels, and Whole Foods Market supported it.

Whole Foods Market says it doesn't support QR codes or the like as a substitute for real GMO labeling. But Mike Adams says CEO Walter Robb actually admitted on camera to supporting the DARK Act 2.0. You can decide for yourself by checking out the video here.

We're all for expanding the market for natural and organic foods that are clean and safe, and Whole Foods Market has done a lot of good in this area. But we also expect transparency, honesty and accountability, something that Adams says is lacking at Whole Foods Market.

"Whole Foods, in my view, functions no differently than a weapons manufacturer, an oil company, a big, corrupt banking system – they're all about profit," says Adams.
