TUCSON, Ariz., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A new science journal that focuses on food and environmental science has just been launched by the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center. Called the "Natural Science Journal," the new peer-reviewed journal focuses on independent science pursued by laboratories and scientists who have no financial ties to pharmaceutical companies, agribusiness giants or government funding sources.
The Natural Science Journal is a free, open source science journal available for immediate download as a PDF document. Visit NaturalScienceJournal.com.
Publisher and founder of the journal, Mike Adams, is an independent scientist and laboratory science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) food and environmental science lab. Adams, who also serves as the executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center, says that science needs to be "democratized" and placed back into the hands of the people instead of being dominated by corporate interests.
"Too much of today's science is distorted or corrupted by for-profit corporate interests," Adams says. "Pharmaceutical companies, agribusiness giants and billion-dollar food corporations exert tremendous influence over what sort of science gets funded or published in mainstream journals. The Natural Science Journal is a truly independent source for genuine science conducted in the public interest."
The first scientific paper published in the journal looks at lead contamination in municipal water supplies across America. Entitled, "ICP-MS analysis of toxic elements (heavy metals) in 100 crowd-sourced municipal water samples from across the United States," the paper reveals dangerous levels of lead and other heavy metals found in water samples taken across America.
Future issues of the Natural Science Journal will cover mercury contamination of pet treats, excessive copper in children vitamins, toxic pesticides in fresh produce and alarmingly high levels of cadmium in organic protein supplements.
All issues of the journal are available for free, as they are published, at NaturalScienceJournal.com
