(Natural News) Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people impacted by the Los Angeles firestorm that has now expanded to over 180 square miles.

Hundreds of homes have been destroyed by the fires, and tens of thousands of people have been displaced. We also understand that many animals have been injured or killed by the blaze, including many thoroughbred horses.

We want all Californians to know that all of us here at Natural News and associated websites are praying for your safety and presence of mind through this ordeal. We know that our readers tend to be extremely well prepared for almost any event, and if there were ever a time for testing your prepper skills, this is it. We have faith that our friends and readers are going well through this ordeal, and we know you have the mindset to save lives and rebuild after the smoke clears.

This firestorm is one of the worst that California has seen for many years, and it’s an unfortunate fact of our planet that botanical fuel burns on a regular basis. Forest fires and brush fires have taken place on our planet for literally billions of years, long before humankind ever existed. Due to the flammability of dry grass and twigs — plus the addition of lightning and wind — fires will continue to rage across our planet with regularity.

The devastation to human life, however, is made no less tragic by the fact that fires are natural phenomena. Wherever we make our homes, when those homes are threatened or destroyed, it is psychologically devastating to us all.

Even when we are prepared for such events, they are still devastating. That’s why today I hope to remind all those impacted by these fires that the most important thing is you making it out alive. Everything else can be replaced, but your life is irreplaceable. Save yourself, your family members and your animals. All the “stuff” in your house or garage is secondary.


These events are powerful reminders, too, that our world can dramatically change in an instant. To survive what’s coming — in all forms — we must remain resilient and determined to face the challenges ahead. It isn’t easy, and some events can feel traumatic at times, but we are all blessed with the ability to overcome adversity and rebuild. To all those directly impacted by the L.A. fires, I urge you to focus on the value of what you have: Your life, your safety and a wealth of support from your community.

Know that even as physical things may go up in flames, the deeper spiritual truth of who you are and what you contribute to this world is 100% fireproof and cannot be destroyed with physical flames. That’s why YOU making it through events like these is the most important outcome that matters.

From all of us at Natural News and our associated websites, we send our prayers and thoughts to all those impacted by the Los Angeles fires. Be safe and deploy your bugout plans. The fires will eventually burn out and life will be restored. You will make it through this and you’ll probably discover yourself to be stronger, wiser and more resilient as a result of all this. There’s a silver lining to ever catastrophe. It’s not for me to say, but perhaps God wants you to have a small taste of the far bigger disaster that’s yet to come for us all.

Be safe, and stay informed on survival and preparedness wisdom at our website

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of 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. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is 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 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 He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power, 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 fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
