Mike Adams, aka the "Health Ranger", gained fame as an outspoken clean food advocate and critic of the over-drugging of America with toxic pharmaceuticals. As an award-winning investigative journalist, he pursued a path of discovery into food ingredients, composition and contamination, ultimately transitioning to a food scientist with a world-class analytical laboratory he built from the ground up.
Today, Adams is a member of the AOAC (Association of Analytical Communities) and is the lab science director of a world class analytical laboratory conducting commercial food testing for heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides and other chemical contaminants. In pursuing the science of food safety, Adams authored the book "Food Forensics", the first book ever published that systematically reveals concentrations of toxic heavy metals in popular foods, beverages and dietary supplements.
Over the last three years, Adams has become a recognized expert in running ICP-MS instrumentation and routinely publishes online videos to help other scientists troubleshoot problems and obstacles with ICP-MS methodologies. Adams is also fully versed in LC/MS instrumentation and currently runs a Time-Of-Flight mass spec instrument made by Agilent.
Adams is also the inventor of the Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow System (FoodRising.org) and holds two pending patents on dietary formulations for eliminating heavy metals and radioactive Cesium-137. He has conducted extensive research into dietary defense strategies to help protect humanity from radiation in water, lead in water and mercury in foods. All of his research has been privately funded, using no funds whatsoever from the NIH, government grants or academic sources.
His commercial laboratory is described at CWClabs.com. Adams also serves as the editor of NaturalNews.com, a popular natural health websites that Adams has taken in the direction of food science and clean food activism. Learn more about Adams at HealthRanger.com.
