What's really in your food? Award-winning investigative journalist and clean food activist Mike Adams, the "Health Ranger," is founder and editor of Natural News, 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.

Table of Contents Introduction Why You Should Never "Diet!" One Food Foods Which “Oppose” Each Other Foods That Complement Each Other The Necessity of Fat in Your Diet The Myth of Calories Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction I decided to write this book when I saw a number of my friends following fatty diets with no proteins, low calories, no carbohydrates or anything else being promoted by any sort of person who called himself a dietitian and had good PR behind him. And I began to think. If these people were put in situations when they could not get food to eat, and had to survive with their body starving, they would not treat food with such casual contempt. However, they were starving their bodies of essential nutrients out of sheer ignorance. They wanted to get thin. Many of them were genetically programmed towards obesity. Others began gaining weight due to the body reaching a stage when it was in such a desperate condition that malnutrition had set in. And that is why it was putting on weight as a last resort in order to protect the body from any sort of future starvation. This book is going to tell you all about ancient food eating practices followed by the wise men of yore. If you say, I cannot do without my potato chips, or my sugar fix, well, you are not ready to live a lifestyle which were followed by our ancestors all over the world, millenniums ago. They ate nourishing food. And they were thankful for what they got. They did not bother much about silly newfangled ideas about calories and in the amounts of calories required to keep you healthy and strong. This of course is a fallacy and is a silly myth, which I am going to explain to you later on, but at the moment I am going to tell you more about how foods were used to heal a number of diseases down the ages, and naturally.
