(Natural News) Over the last few years, Natural News has set something in motion that absolutely terrifies the food and supplement industries. What have we done that’s so frightening? We’ve started to use good science to analyze foods and supplements for heavy metals, pesticides, industrial chemicals and more.
We were instrumental in accelerating the independent food science movement in 2013, first exposing the toxic heavy metals (lead, cadmium, mercury) in organic rice protein products imported from China. Very quickly, the entire protein industry moved away from that contaminated rice material, vastly reducing toxic heavy metals exposure across tens of millions of consumers. That never would have happened without Natural News and my laboratory, CWC Labs.
In the years since, we’ve exposed the shockingly high level of lead in zeolite products, and we’re now publishing summary charts showing analyses of supplements, covering pesticides, pharmacological chemicals, heavy metals and much more. (See example report below.)
What you are witnessing in all this is the “democratization of science.” It is a decentralized revolution in food transparency, and the movement is rapidly proliferating. In addition to the Consumer Wellness Center (where I serve as the executive director) now analyzing and publishing food analysis results, another non-profit group called the Clean Label Project is also conducting laboratory analysis of products. The Organic Consumers Association, Cornucopia and the Environmental Working Group are also engaged in lab analysis of foods and personal care products, and I’m personally aware of at least two more similar projects coming online in 2018…Read More
