(Natural News) Do you trust the “organic” label to really be organic? A U.S. farmer named Randy Constant killed himself to avoid a 10-year prison sentence after being convicted of running a massive organic fraud scheme that produced millions of bushels of “organic” corn and soybeans which were sold into the U.S. marketplace.

His conviction has been called the largest organic fraud scheme in the history of America. Constant amassed a fortune of $142 million in fraudulent organic grain sales as part of the scheme which saw fake organic grains fed to meat livestock to produce so-called “organic” meat. (He essentially laundered fraudulent fake organic grains through animals to produce fake organic meat.)

This fraudulent “organic” meat was then sold to retailers all across the country who sold that meat to health-conscious consumers who falsely believed the meat was organic. The Associated Press reports:

Prosecutors say Constant falsely marketed non-organic corn and soybeans as certified organic on a massive scale. His sales amounted to 7 percent of organic corn grown in the U.S. in 2016 and 8 percent of the organic soybeans. Overall, from 2010 to 2017, he sold more than 11.5 million bushels of grain, or enough to fill 3,600 rail cars, prosecutors said.

Constant owned an Iowa-based brokerage, which sold his grain primarily as feed for chickens and cattle. Those animals were then marketed for their meat and meat products that were advertised as organic.

This is why we test everything and trust no one

This stunning case of massive organic fraud explains why we test everything we produce and sell at the Health Ranger Store. Every raw material and finished production lot is tested for glyphosate, heavy metals, microbiology and other factors depending on the material. We currently reject 80% or more of the raw materials we test because they are contaminated with heavy metals or pesticides / herbicides.


We routinely find high lead content in cacao, turmeric, maca root and other crops. Resveratrol powder is almost always heavily contaminated with pesticides, and many beans and legumes are saturated with glyphosate. Ocean-based products (like seaweed) are very often found to have very high arsenic, and we’ve even found heavy metals like tungsten in rice protein from China. We also find high heavy metals and pesticides in materials that are accompanied by what appears to be lab certification claiming exactly the opposite. Yes, certification fraud is rampant in the raw materials market when it comes to supplements, food and superfood. And if it comes from China, you can almost guarantee the certificates will be counterfeit.

Those same lots of raw materials that we reject are purchased and used by other supplement and superfood manufacturers to make their own branded products which are sold on Amazon.com and other retailers around the world. Amazon.com, in particular, has become a “marketplace of fraud” that was recently exposed by the Wall Street Journal for selling thousands of illegal, contaminated and fraudulent products to the public.

Why did it take the USDA eight years to stop the organic fraud?

There is so much fraud in the industry that we’ve learned to trust no one. As a simple question, how did this Midwest farmer get away with his massive fraud for eight years? Why didn’t the organic certification system stop him? The answer is obvious: The USDA’s organic program suffers from gaping enforcement failures. (See more at USDAwatch.com)

And if this level of deliberate fraud can be achieved by a fraudulent farmer in the USA, imagine the level of fraud being routinely committed by dishonest communist liars and fraudsters who claim to produce “organic” products in China. (“Organic” from China is largely a fraud.)

Sadly, buying products that are USDA organic certified isn’t enough. Unless those products are tested and verified in a laboratory, there’s no real way to tell whether they are truly organic or not. After all, the USDA apparently has no real enforcement of organic standards, and they don’t even pretend to test foods for heavy metals. (Heavy metals are not even part of the USDA organic program.)

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com 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 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. 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 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 fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
