(Natural News), the free speech alternative to YouTube, has now rolled out a series of promised new features that help video content creators get more visibility (and build followers).

The new features, now active on, include:

  • Channel “subscribe” feature allows followers to subscribe to video channels they like. Once subscribed, all the recent videos from their favorite channels appear for that user on the home page of
  • No shadowbanning. Users see all the videos of the channels they follow.
  • Automatic categories for all videos, and a new home page that shows videos by category: Politics, Health, Food, Climate, Survival, Finance, Science, etc. Owners of videos can determine video categories by adding keyword tags to their videos, and they can change their video categories by changing those keyword tags.
  • Video “likes” so that users can express their support for the videos they like.
  • New dashboard enhancements for channel owners, including the ability to see total subscribers, total channel likes and more.
  • Fully-integrated support for “Donate” buttons for channel owners who have SubscribeStar accounts. (Enter your SubscribeStar account ID in your dashboard, and the “Donate” button automatically goes to your SubscribeStar account page.)

At the same time, we’ve removed “Editor’s Picks” so that Brighteon editors are no longer involved in picking which videos appear on the home page. Now, the process is driven purely by fair, simple algorithms that are applied exactly the same across all channels and videos.


As always, there is no surveillance of users. Unlike evil tech giants like YouTube and Facebook, Brighteon does not track which videos are viewed by which users and does not build psychological profiles of users. The only thing we keep track of is a user’s channel subscribes (so that we can show that user the videos from the channels they follow).

Join Brighteon now at this link. Once joined, you can:

  • View and embed all the videos you want.
  • “Follow” / subscribe to the channels you like.
  • Post your own videos.

There are many new features coming for Help support this free speech platform by uploading and promoting your best videos about vaccines, food recipes, GMOs, political analysis, liberty, survival, firearms, home gardening and more.

Coming soon: Premium (paid) video content and video libraries

One of the next big features we’re rolling out is support for premium (paid) video content such as documentaries, feature films, premium how-to videos, etc. Content creators and owners will be able to upload these videos and set a purchase price. Once users purchase the video, they can access and watch that video in their video library (unlimited lifetime viewing).

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of 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. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is 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 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 He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power, 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 fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
