Mike Adams: Health Ranger and founder of Natural News

Mike Adams, “The Health Ranger” is a fearless consumer advocate, award winning investigative journalist, Internet activist, and science lab director. He is also the founder and editor of, which is the Internet’s most trafficked natural health news website.

Mike is a legend in the natural health space. He has written over 2,000 articles and reached over a hundred million people through his various websites. He’s also a musician, a composer and a computer programmer. And rumor has it he solved a Rubik’s cube in twenty-six seconds. Mike is also one of the kindest most generous people I’ve met and he’s absolutely brilliant. I haven’t confirmed this, but I think he probably has a genius level IQ.

In this wide ranging interview, Mike and I discuss how he became the Health Ranger, living off the grid in Ecuador, what he’s learned running a food science lab, how he stays sane seeing what he sees every day, and so much more.

This was one of the most fun and interesting interviews I’ve ever done. Enjoy!

Every product sold by Mike in the Health Ranger Store has been extensively tested in the Consumer Wellness Center Labs using ICP-MS atomic spectrometry instrumentation for heavy metal contamination, and is Verified Low Heavy Metals (for lead, cadmium, arsenic and mercury).

The Health Ranger Store is my new favorite source for things like: organic turmeric powder, chlorella, spirulina, broccoli sprout powder, non-GMO vitamin C powder, chia seeds, lentils, superfoods, organic emergency food and more. My last order was organic turmeric powder, a giant tub of Goldenberries, Turmeric Gummy Bears for the kids, and Bearded Brothers organic whole food snack bars for my travel bag. :)

Hi I’m Chris!
