About this item

What's really in our food?

Award-winning investigative journalist and clean food activist Mike Adams, the "Health Ranger," is founder and editor of NaturalNews.com, one of the top health news websites in the world, reaching millions of readers each month.

Now, in Food Forensics, Adams meticulously tests groceries, fast foods, dietary supplements, spices, and protein powders for heavy metals and toxic elements that could be jeopardizing your health.
To conduct this extensive research, Adams built a state-of-the-art laboratory with cutting-edge scientific instruments. Publishing results of metal concentrations for more than 800 different foods, Food Forensics is doing the job the FDA refuses to do: testing off-the-shelf foods and sharing the findings so the public can make informed decisions about what they consume or avoid.

In Food Forensics, you'll discover little-known truths about other toxic food ingredients such as polysorbate 80, MSG, sodium nitrite, pesticides, and weed killers such as glyphosate. Adams reveals stunning, never-before-reported details of heavy metals found in recycled human waste used on crops and in parks, and he explains how industrial pollution causes mercury, lead, and cadmium to end up in your favorite protein powders.

This book will forever change your view of food safety, regulation, and manufacturing. When you know what's really in your food, you can start making changes to protect yourself against serious diseases like cancer, all while maximizing your natural immune defenses against infection and disease.

About the Author

Mike Adams

Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a globally recognized scientific researcher specializing in forensic food analysis and is widely considered the natural product industry's most authoritative expert on heavy metals contamination.

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. Through his science efforts, the lab was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in 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 for the detection of pesticides, herbicides, industrial chemicals and pharmaceutical residues.

Beyond his scientific interests, Adams lives on a ranch in Texas (near Austin) and cares for Nigerian Dwarf Goats, rescued donkeys and free-range chickens. He practices permaculture and self-reliant home gardening, and he's a strong advocate of personal preparedness, ecological protection and self-reliance. In addition to his interests in science and ecology, Adams is a long-range tactical target shooter and is highly trained in self-defense. He believes strongly in the healing properties of hemp and is currently researching hemp plant extracts for medicinal applications.

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.

While writing the book, Adams developed and patented (pending) a radiation protection dietary solution that blocks the body's absorption of Cesium-137, the most deadly radioactive isotope that persists in soils following nuclear accidents. He also developed a heavy metals absorption formula that binds with lead, mercury and cadmium during human digestion. In his laboratory, Adams is able to analyze the isotopic ratios of radioactive elements, a technique that can help determine the origins of radioactive materials used in nuclear terrorism events.

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 i
