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, Continue reading
A popular cosmetic product since time immemorial, lipstick has long been used by women in many diverse cultures to accentuate their femininity and emanate their own unique expressions of elegance and style to the outside world. But a new study released by the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) School of Public Health raises fresh concerns about the safety of using conventional lipstick products, as many of them were found to contain dangerously high levels of aluminum, cadmium, lead and other toxins.
UCB researchers tested 32 Continue reading

Important to all of us is the health of children. Our own children, our grandchildren, nieces, nephews, godchildren. When it comes to environmental toxins affecting our most susceptible, innocent members of society, we must all stop and take notice. That’s why we are reporting today on a paper published that presents the top-10 chemicals highly likely to contribute to autism Continue reading
Picture:The system works by refilling meteoric waters that penetrate the earth in high areas, move underground and reach an unknown thermal hot spot, where they heat up and acquire CO2,..
There are no legal limits for uranium concentrations in water in the EU
Monitoring the construction of wells, avoid over-exploiting cold groundwater close to hot groundwater, and controlling mineral water extraction. These are the recommendations from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and the University of Barcelona, after analysing the contamination of La Selva geothermal system, above all by arsenic pollution. In this region, Continue reading
When applying lipstick – or puckering up to made-up lips – you might have more to worry about than stained teeth.
Four hundred of the most popular lipsticks on the market contain traces of lead according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration analysis, the Washington Post reported.
The FDA’s response? We know.
“Reports about lead in lipstick are not new,” The FDA said on its website, referencing lab tests from the 1990s, as well as a 2007 report from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. The campaign at the time tested 33 red lipsticks Continue reading
Higher blood levels of cadmium in females, and higher blood levels of lead in males, delayed pregnancy in couples trying to become pregnant, according to a study by researchers at the National Institutes of Health and other academic research institutions.
Cigarette smoke is the most common source of exposure to cadmium,, a toxic metal found in the earth’s crust, which is used in batteries, pigments, metal coatings and plastics. Smokers are estimated to have twice the levels of cadmium as do non-smokers. Exposure also occurs in workplaces where cadmium-containing products are made, and from the air near industrial facilities that emit cadmium. Airborne cadmium particles can travel long distances before settling on the ground or water. Soil levels of cadmium vary with location. Fish, plants, and animals absorb cadmium from the environment, and all foods contain at least low levels of the metal.
Lead, a toxic metal also found in the earth’s crust, is used in a variety of products, such as ceramics, pipes, and batteries. Common sources of lead exposure in the United States include lead-based paint in older homes, Continue reading
One of the fastest growing health conditions in the US is hypothyroidism. The most common symptoms experienced are lethargy, depression and weight gain. Some of the newest reports are estimating that 15-30% of the population may have thyroid problems. An anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle provide natural solutions to boost thyroid function.
The thyroid gland is one of the most sensitive regions of the body to environmental toxins. The most common environmental toxins affecting thyroid function include:
Industrial Pollutants in Air & Water
Ionizing Radiation from medical devices and microwaves
Heavy Metals such as Mercury, Lead, & Aluminum
Perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) and other chemicals in non-stick pans
Fluoride in water, toothpaste, Continue reading
