Natural News launches Labs reference website with heavy metals results for foods, organics, supplements and more

In conjunction with the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (ConsumerWellness.org), Natural News (NaturalNews.com) has begun publishing heavy metals lab reports for off-the-shelf food products. With industrial pollution worsening and many "organic" foods now imported from China, heavy metals and toxic elements are increasingly being found in foods purchased by consumers, including some certified organic foods.

Through NaturalNews.com, heavy metals lab results are available free to the public and include parts per billion (ppb) concentrations of Aluminum, Arsenic, Cadmium, Mercury, Lead and Copper. Due to concerns about foods absorbing radioactive fallout from the Fukushima catastrophe, results for Cesium and Uranium are also included. Toxic elements are linked to diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, kidney failure, cognitive impairment, birth defects, hardening of the arteries and more.

Testing is conducted via ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry), using high-level analytical chemistry and cutting edge scientific instrumentation.

Foods being tested by the CWC include fast foods, conventional grocery products, breakfast cereals, superfoods, protein powders, infant formula, packaged meats, dairy products, sodas, teas and dietary supplements. A small selection of lab results is already published, with dozens more posted each week. Results are available now at: http://Labs.NaturalNews.com

Total transparency for foods, superfoods, organics and supplements

Mike Adams, the executive director of the Consumer Wellness Center, oversees laboratory operations. "This food science project is about providing transparency to consumers so they can make informed decisions about what foods they wish to consume or avoid," Adams explains. "Many people also have health conditions which are worsened by toxic heavy metals, and given that these elements can stay in the body for decades, consumers are empowered by knowing which foods are safer for them to consume."

Adams has also released a video explaining the announcement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnnTQaCbayk

Currently, the FDA sets no upper limit on allowable heavy metals in foods. The USDA's certified organic program also defines no limits. Foods can be legally sold in the United States even when they contain extremely high levels of heavy metals and toxic elements.

Because heavy metal contaminants are not required to be listed on labels, food consumers are unknowingly buying and consuming them in concerning quantities. All heavy metals bio-accumulate in mammals and humans, meaning the longer someone continues to eat them, the worse the health effects can become.
