(NaturalNews) The Health Ranger’s laboratory, now known as the Consumer Wellness Center Labs (CWClabs.com) has just been awarded a “Certificate of Excellence” by ERA, a Waters Company proficiency testing firm that tests laboratory analytical accuracy.
The test name is “WS-236” with a close date of 4/15/2016. It tests the ability of laboratories to detect trace levels of heavy metals in water, using EPA methodology 200.8 (the method used by the EPA to test for lead in municipal water supplies, after which the EPA lies about the results and tells the public there’s no problem, no matter what the data reveal).
The Health Ranger’s CWC Labs scored a 100% acceptable data result for testing water for trace heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium and lead. CWC Labs results were so precise that the certificate reads, “This achievement is a demonstration of the superior quality of the laboratory” in evaluating heavy metals. It is signed by ERA quality manager Patrick Larson.
For two of the elements tested, our laboratory analysis was off by just 0.3 parts per billion. (In other words, 0.0003 ppm). In other words, even when we are handed a substance with no information about its composition, our laboratory methodologies and instrumentation are able to determine its actual elemental composition to within extremely tight windows of accuracy and reproducibility.
I ran these tests myself on the ICP-MS, by the way, using the exact same external standards and quality control procedures we use in all our heavy metals tests. All the products we sell in the Natural News Store are also tested in this way to ensure they are clean and safe for our customers. We reject raw materials and products that are high in metals like lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic and even copper.
Here’s the Certificate of Excellence we were awarded:
CWC Labs is very close to final ISO 17025 accreditation, after which we will open up the lab to commercial clients for testing of heavy metals, pesticides, label compliance and more. We’re also scheduled to test a huge array of off-the-shelf products to look for poisons in the public food supply.
Once we have achieved ISO 17025 — a process we started almost two years ago — our laboratory results will be irrefutable because we will have achieved an international accreditation standard that’s beyond the scope of most U.S. university labs. Our laboratory results can be cited as evidence by any court of law, anywhere in the developed world.

My upcoming book Food Forensics was created using this same laboratory instrumentation to test over 800 foods, spices, herbs and fast food items for heavy metals.
