Which nutritional products do YOU want to see tested for heavy metals by the Health Ranger? Post your vote here...

Heavy metals

(NaturalNews) My forensic food laboratory (CWClabs.com) has just completed an automation upgrade, giving us the capacity to test more off-the-shelf nutrition products for heavy metals. So today, I want to know from Natural News readers: What do YOU want me to test next?

Based on the comments posted by readers below this article, we'll compile the suggestions and create a list of the top 10 most requested nutritional products. As a service to Natural News readers, we'll purchase those products, test them for heavy metals, and post the test results in an upcoming article.

Feel free to suggest specific product names, brand names or even general categories such as "curry spices."

Generally speaking, by the way, most heavily processed junk foods do not contain high heavy metals. For example, sodas, crackers, cookies, breakfast cereals and cake mixes are almost always very, very low in heavy metals. Energy drinks like Gatorade are also very low in toxic metals (but very high in refined sugars, of course). So it's probably not worth suggesting any highly processed junk food products.

Now is your chance to see the test results of your favorite products (without even having to pay for any lab testing). Share this article with your social contacts if you want them to chime in and support your suggestions.

ICP-MS testing at my lab

The top 10 most requested products will be tested via ICP-MS at my ISO accredited laboratory (CWClabs.com), which also offers commercial lab testing services for human hair samples, dietary supplements, foods, water and soil. If you're interested in commercial testing services, check out HealthRangerStore.com for heavy metals testing kits, or learn more at CWClabs.com.

ICP-MS testing is sensitive to sub-parts per billion concentrations for most elements. This means we can accurately analyze almost any substance for its elemental composition with extreme accuracy. My current ICP-MS analysis method tests for 20 elements, including heavy metals, macro minerals and trace elements.

If you're curious about the test results for over 800 foods, spices, superfoods, pet treats and much more, check out my #1 best selling science book called Food Forensics.

In addition to the heavy metals lab testing services offered at my lab, we also offer extremely accurate CBD analysis for hemp extracts. We even have cutting edge technology for counterfeit molecule detection that can warn you about fake CBD products.

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.
