At CounterThink, you learn a lot of information that challenges your current view of reality, and this article is no exception to that. It's about changing your oil in your car. You might say, "What? Changing my oil? What could be controversial or earth-shattering about that?" Well, how about the idea that there's actually no need to change the oil in your car? The oil-changing industry has been created to sell you new oil that you really don't need.

From a mechanical point of view, the oil in your car does not break down. It simply gets dirty. Particles in the air get lodged in your oil, which increases its viscosity, or in other words, increases its thickness and friction, which causes wear and tear on the parts of your engine that are lubricated with the oil. After 5,000 miles of driving, you may have a lot of particles in your oil. There's nothing wrong with the oil itself. Oil doesn't break down in 5,000 miles, especially if it's synthetic. Your oil isn't bad, it's just dirty, and the truth of the matter is that your oil doesn't need to be changed; it just needs to be cleaned.

If you were to remove all the particles from that oil, leaving just the clean, pure oil that you put in your car in the first place, you could continue using that oil for a long period of time. Perhaps 50,000 miles, or 10 times longer than the average person goes on their oil. Now, you say, "Wait a minute, I already have an oil filter on my car. That should be cleaning the oil." Well, it does clean the oil to some extent, but it just filters out the larger particles. That doesn't clean your oil at a fine enough tolerance to render the oil as good as new. However, if you were to take the oil out of the car and clean it through a much better filter, then you could put that same oil back in your car and drive another 5,000 miles.

Of course, this is information that the petroleum industry doesn't want people to know. That's why most people find this to be a complete shock. They say, "What? I don't need to change my oil? I just need to clean it?" The petroleum industry wants to keep selling you more oil. Now, there are two problems with that. First, it's just basically dishonest, when in reality you don't need to change your oil; you just need to clean it. Secondly, it creates an environmental hazard because we have all this old, used oil being disposed of all around the country, and a lot of it ends up in landfills, or even in just regular household garbage. Some of it ends up poured into streams or rivers. Some people just pour it down the drain. So we have a huge oil disposal problem in this country, which creates a negative environmental impact. That impact could be largely avoided by reusing the same oil we already have in our cars.

The environmental impact of throwing away a dirty filter is far less than throwing away five quarts of oil. It's all about recycling. As much as we have people talking about recycling in this country, and all these recycling efforts and recycling programs, nobody is talking about recycling this oil, except a few smart companies that will reclaim used oil. They'll actually buy it from filling stations or landfills that collect oil. They'll cart it off, and guess what these companies do with this oil? They run it through a very fine filter. They clean the oil and resell it back to industrial users. It's recycled oil, and it's nearly as good as the new stuff.

If you've been thinking all along that you have to change the oil in your car because the oil is wearing out, you've been conned. The truth is, all you have to do is clean your oil, and then you can reuse it again. So how do you clean it? Unfortunately, there's no easy system for consumers to clean their own oil, but there is commercial equipment available that the oil recycling companies use. You see, the industry doesn't want people to know that they can clean their oil. There's no incentive for anybody from the petroleum industry to show you how to reuse the same oil over and over again.

But I'll give you a hint on how to do this yourself: If you're handy with mechanics, you can clean your own oil by pumping it under high pressure through a cellulose filtration device otherwise known as toilet paper. Check it out yourself at Ralph Wood Bypass Filters.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
