Harmful Food

With the rise in food-borne and food-related illnesses, people are becoming more aware of the relationship between the contaminants in our food and illness. Food may look perfectly normal, yet contain all kinds of preservatives, heavy metals, and artificial ingredients to add flavor or color.

A new book exposes the hidden truth
Now, in an industry first, Mike Adams, self-styled "Health Ranger", and his team put the things we eat every day under the microscope. They reveal the buried truth about the contaminants in our foods. Through high-resolution images taken through a microscope, the new book Food Forensics shows us what we can't see with the naked eye. Moreover, the book details test levels of lead, arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and more. It examines these toxic elements in common foods, supplements, and additives, from cereals, soups, and other pre-packaged meals to fast food and medicinal herbs.

Organic vs. non-organic
Adams’ tests reveal the differences between organic and non-organic foods, GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) and non-GMO certified foods plus, which foods and brands have the fewest contaminants. All test results adhere to United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved lab protocols, exceeding even Consumer Reports' levels of accountability. Moreover, the test results were verified by a third-party university lab. Food Forensics discloses how food contamination happens and why it matters, and provides valuable information on how you can protect yourself. In this book, the Health Ranger sounds the alarm about food contamination.

What is Clean Food?
Clean Food is typically organically grown, non-GMO, additive-free, and free of artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives. Because preservative-free food is highly perishable, it has a short shelf-life and is often costlier.

Who is Mike Adams?
An award-winning investigative journalist, Mike Adams is a highly opinionated, outspoken, consumer health advocate, internet activist, and science lab director. He is the founder and editor of, one of the internet's most-popular natural health news websites.

Haves vs. Have-Nots
"Producing pesticide-laden food is cheap, while producing clean, organic food is more expensive". Given the expense, Clean Food is out of the budget for most people. Moving into the future, there will be a growing divide between people who are able to afford Clean Food and those who cannot. To eat clean food and stay healthy, people will have to spend a higher percentage of their discretionary income on food than they do today.

Increased usage of precious healthcare resources
Plus, with the negative effects that contaminant-laden foods have on the body, the have-nots will use a significantly higher percentage of healthcare resources---because they will need to. We also forecast increasing demand for products like Wu Jin San, a brand of fulvic acid,  that can remove the heavy metals from the body and other products that can reduce the effects of the unavoidable contaminants. Unfortunately, this research does not paint a pretty picture for the fututre of food.
