The aim of the CWC is to promote nutrition as a way to prevent disease and enhance human health and longevity. It focuses primarily on prenatal nutrition and children's health issues.

Funds for this program have been provided by donations from the Global Healing Center (, Boku Superfood (, Health Products Distributors, Inc.

Mike Adams has donated 50 percent of his net proceeds from Moxxor to help fund health freedom and health education programs, including this nutritional grant program from the CWC.

By offering these nutritional grants, Adams hopes to see schoolteachers and administrators creating innovative ways to help children learn about and embrace healthier eating habits. Success stories will be published on and a second, expanded round of nutrition grants is planned for 2009.

Adams is a vocal critic of junk food marketing to children and the U.S. government's dishonest nutritional recommendations which he describes as being strongly influenced by the food industry's profit motives rather than solid nutritional science. He is strongly against the use of psychiatric drugs to medicate children that simply need healthier eating habits, and he opposes mandatory vaccination programs that inject teens with potentially dangerous chemicals. He also supports the banning of all junk food and soda advertising, and the removal of all junk food and soda vending machines from public schools.
