|SCIENCE.naturalnews.com allows you to explore the scientific literature by almost any keyword or concept imaginable. Over 7,000 concepts — including disease names, drug names and nutrients — have been indexed across the entire library of scientific literature.Each concept is also statistically related to other concepts so that you can find hidden relationships in the science. For example, studies on “milk” are most frequently related to the concept of “allergies.”You can see all the studies on “milk” at this page:
And you can see all the studies on “allergies” at this page:
Or, better yet, you can see all the studies on “milk and allergies” at this page:
There are tens of thousands of other examples of such relationships found throughout the website. SCIENCE.naturalnews.com is the first and only system in the world to discover and publish these relationships across the scientific literature.
Share, comment and link
In addition to being able to easily discover important relationships among millions of scientific studies, SCIENCE.naturalnews.com allows you to share the studies, post comments on studies and link back to the studies using a shortcut link.
This makes it easy to share fascinating new science with your friends, such as this study that reveals howchlorella causes cancer cells to commit suicide(apoptosis and DNA damage to cancer cells):
Or check out this study on the fact that everyday hamburgers contain as little as 2% actual meat, with the rest being water and fillers:
Created and programmed by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
I created SCIENCE.naturalnews.com to provide an easy-to-use tool that would allow consumers, bloggers, writers and researchers to easily located scientific answers to common questions about nutrition, foods, pharmaceuticals and more.
Based on data provided by the taxpayer-funded National Library of Medicine, SCIENCE.naturalnews.com is being launched with three million scientific studies and is on track to grow by one million new studies each week until it reaches the full capacity of all known scientific studies tracked by the NLM.
Within a few months, the entire body of published scientific papers available today will be found at SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, categorized and indexed into 24 commonsense categories such as “superfoods” or “heavy metals.”
SCIENCE.naturalnews.com uses advanced “signal detection” algorithms I personally developed here at Natural News, a natural health news and activism site that now reaches over 5.5 million unique visitors each month.
These algorithms allow us to discover hidden patterns in large sets of data, then to publish those patterns on the web so that millions of people around the world can benefit from the quantum leap in knowledge enabled by this technology. When you browse SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, you are in effectbypassing thousands of hours of research it might have traditionally taken to identify such patterns and relationships.
What used to take hundreds of hours of research can now be located in minutes. And when people ask you, “Well, what’s the proof that curcumin helps reverse cancer and arthritis,” you can easily find and share those pages:
Expect minor glitches: Still in beta state
Keep in mind that SCIENCE.naturalnews.com is in a beta state, and minor glitches should be expected.
Also, Google has not fully spidered the site yet, so searches won’t yet yield satisfying results. Over time, however, this will automatically improve, allowing you to use the front-page search function to find almost anything you wish.
In addition, we are constantly adding new concepts to the system. For example, in testing the site today I realized we never indexed the phrase, “kidney damage.” So I’m adding “kidney damage” to the vocabulary of the system so that it gets properly indexed and compared to other concepts. This will allow you to find lists of scientific studies on concepts like “kidney damage and cadmium.”
We’re also added classes of drugs to the system such as “beta blockers” and “antidepressants” so that you can search for side effects by drug classes, not just individual drug names.
The bottom line is that SCIENCE.naturalnews.com is off the ground and usable right now, and at the same time it’s going to keep getting better and more comprehensive in the weeks ahead.
SCIENCE made possible through your support
In launching this project, I want to thank all the Natural News readers, sponsors and store customers who made this project possible. The investment in this system was in the six-figures-plus range, and this will cost us just under $10,000 / month to keep online… and that’s just for starters. If traffic becomes large, that monthly bill will substantially increase.
This project was entirely funded by ad revenue and store sales. We do not apply for — nor accept — government grants of any kind. We engage in R&D and scientific endeavors because it is the right thing to do, relying on the entrepreneurial spirit of innovation and American ingenuity.
Keep in mind this announcement is just one of THREE key content announcements we are making this year. The next “content realm” announcement will be made public very soon, perhaps within two weeks. And the third major announcement will be made closer to the end of this calendar year (if we can keep the R&D on track).
All of these announcements offer extraordinary knowledge benefits to the public and place Natural News in a category all its own as the leader in not just news and activism content, but scientific knowledge that can help empower and inspire tens of millions of people all around the world.
Thank you for your continued support, and with that support, we will continue to march forward, unleashing extraordinary tools of knowledge and wisdom that help uplift humanity. You can help support this effort by using SCIENCE.naturalnews.com as a research and reference tool while linking to or sharing study pages found there.
Thank you for your continued support!

Mental health services have become increasingly dominated by psychiatry’s ”medical model”, which claims that feeling depressed, anxious or paranoid is primarily caused by genetic predispositions and chemical imbalances.
This has led to alarming rises in chemical solutions to distress. In New Zealand, one in nine adults (and one in five women) is prescribed antidepressants every year.
The public, however, in every country studied, including Australia, believes that mental health problems are caused by issues such as stress, poverty and isolation. The public also prefers talking therapies to drugs and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).
Research suggests the public is right. For example, the single best predictor of just about every mental health problem is poverty, followed by other social factors such as abuse, neglect and early loss of parents in childhood, and – once in adulthood – loneliness and a range of adverse events including losses and defeats of various kinds.
Meanwhile, reviews of studies on anti-depressants (which only recently have been able to include those previously kept secret by drug companies) conclude that they are superior to placebos only for those at the extreme end of the ”most severe” group of depressed people. This represents less than 10 per cent of the people who are receiving these drugs.
A recent Cochrane review (the type most highly regarded in the scientific community) for risperidone, a leading anti-psychotic drug, ”suggests that there is no clear difference between risperidone and [a] placebo”.

ADHD is a bogus mental “disorder” based off a checklist of behaviors. There are no medical tests to prove any child has ADHD, yet more than 4.5 million kids have been diagnosed and put on drugs such as Ritalin, Adderall and Concerta, which the U.S. DEA places in the same highly addictive category of drugs as cocaine, morphine and opium. The “checklist” for ADHD could fit any normal child and literally includes such ridiculous criteria as
“loses pencils or toys”
“often does not seem to listen”
“is easily distracted by extraneous stimuli” (what kid isn’t?)
” runs about or climbs excessively in situations when it is not appropriate” (we are talking about KIDS here… right?)
To summarize; there are no blood tests, brain scans, chemical imbalance tests, X-rays or “genetic” factors to prove any child has a mental “illness” called ADHD. This is simply a list of child-like behaviors that psychiatrists clustered together, repackaged as a mental disorder and the result is a multi billion dollar empire — the child labeling and drugging industry.

(NaturalNews) While city living offers many amenities and advantages not found in rural living, it might have a downside in the area of mental health. City dwellers generally are more stressed and are at a higher risk of developing mental illness than their rural counterparts. Although scientists have been aware of this, they did not know the reason why. A new study has revealed certain alterations in brain function that could potentially provide the explanation: Time Healthland reports.
Previous research indicates that those who grow up in a city have a two- to three-fold higher likelihood of developing schizophrenia. In addition, earlier studies show that even after reaching adulthood, city living raises the probability of contracting anxiety disorders by 21% and mood illnesses, such as depression, by 39% compared with rural dwellers.
The new study has provided further enlightenment on the issue. In an international investigation published in the journal Nature, researchers at University of Heidelberg and McGill University report that city dwellers or those who were raised in cities display definite characteristics of activity in specific areas of the brain that are not found in rural dwellers. The study pinpointed two areas of the brain that seem to be involved in responding to stress. Read more:
