Press Release has been prepared…

Brought to you by MicaPureWater
I appreciate you tuning in, and ask that each of you “share” and forward this information. It is not Adya’s policy to litigate or resolve business disputes in the press; however, due to the numerous articles published by Mike Adams and Matt Monarch, Adya was compelled to respond in order to preserve our good name.
As reported by Mike Adams of Natural News yesterday:
Matt Monarch, founder of Raw Food World, was the largest distributor of Adya Clarity when news broke last year that the product was imported as “battery acid” and contained a surprisingly high level of aluminum which was intentionally omitted from the label.
In learning this, Monarch announced a product refund and has since refunded many thousands of customers their full purchase price. This has resulted in a huge financial hit that he describes in devastating terms, and now Adya, Inc. is reportedly threatening to sue Monarch for around $200,000.
Instead of agreeing to that, Monarch has announced his plan to sue Adya, Inc. for what he called “misrepresention and fraud.” Details in today’s feature article:

Adya Inc.’s Matt Bakos Breaks the SilenceResponds to Mike Adams’ & Matt Monarch’s April 24 Articles
Coldwater, MI – April 24, 2012
Adya Inc. released the below official statement today following allegations disseminated on April 24th, 2012, by Mike Adams (The Health Ranger -NaturalNews.com) and Matthew Monarch (The Raw Food World).
Said Bakos, “These allegations are completely untrue. Adya Inc. can and will prove them to be unfounded and false. The comprehensive statement below has been prepared and will be released across the web.
“If you, or anyone you know, have not yet received your promised refund for your previous purchase of Adya Clarity from the Raw Food World, please forward your latest communication containing the status of your refund from the Raw Food World to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
READERS ARE STRONGLY URGED TO SHARE THIS ARTICLE AND LEGAL COMPLAINT WITH FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND OTHERS INTERESTED IN THE ADYA CLARITY BRAND.
Adya Inc. (“Adya”) is in receipt of the articles published this morning by Mike Adams (“Adams”) of Natural News, and Matt Monarch (“Monarch”) of Raw Food World, Inc (“RFW”). It is not Adya’s policy to litigate or resolve business disputes in the press; however, due to the numerous articles published by Mike Adams and Matt Monarch, Adya was compelled to respond in order to preserve our good name.
How did this situation begin?
This matter began in late October of last year when Adams published a series of false and misleading articles regarding the efficacy of Adya Clarity. Today’s articles are the latest in this series of false and misleading attacks by these parties. Adya believes this latest round of negative articles directed against our company, me personally, and Adya Clarity, are the result of a lawsuit that Adya filed against Raw Food World, a major distributor of Adya Clarity.
Adya vehemently denies any claims that when used as directed, Adya Clarity is harmful to consumers. Adya Clarity is made from an extract of black mica, a common mineral and purified water. There exists plenty of scientific evidence concerning the efficacy of the constituent parts of black mica extract. When used as directed, there is no evidence anywhere to suggest that Adya Clarity is harmful to consumers. Furthermore, neither Monarch nor Adams has produced any evidence to the contrary. Rather, they both make claims about our product and provide no evidence to substantiate their claims.
Is Adya Clarity a Dietary Supplement?
No. Let us be clear, Adya Clarity is a mineral solution for water purification. Adya Clarity is not, and has never been advertised as a dietary supplement. Furthermore, both The Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and Health Canada have inspected the Adya Clarity label without citing Adya for violation of any labeling law. More importantly, both the FDA and Health Canada have tested Adya Clarity and determined it is not harmful to consumers either. In fact, Health Canada has approved the use of Adya Clarity for women who are pregnant.
Why Did Adya file a lawsuit against RFW?
Adya filed a lawsuit against RFW because RFW had an agreement with Adya regarding the supply and sale of Adya Clarity. RFW and Monarch have made a great deal of money from the sale of Adya Clarity, and instead of paying Adya monies we are lawfully owed; Monarch began a campaign with Adams to ruin our good name and reputation.
Since this matter is currently being litigated, Adya is not at liberty to discuss any further details. However, in order to provide full transparency to the public, Adya has enclosed a copy of the complaint for the public’s review.
Did Adya File a Lawsuit against Monarch’s Family?
No. Let us set the record straight, Adya is NOT suing Monarch’s family. The mere notion is a ploy for Monarch to gain the public’s sympathy and to paint Adya as the “bad guy.” As stated above, Adya filed this lawsuit to clear our good name and restore our reputation in the marketplace. Through the course of this litigation, the truth will be revealed. Adya looks forward to full disclosure of all the facts to the public, so they can be assured of the efficacy of our product.
Did Adya Issue a Refund For Adya Clarity?
No. Monarch and RFW initiated this refund on their own accord. Adya has never issued a product recall, nor offered any special refunds because we stand behind the safety of Adya Clarity for use to purify water as directed. As stated above, the FDA and Health Canada have inspected Adya Clarity and determined that it does not pose a health risk to consumers. Furthermore, Monarch and Adams have supplied no evidence that Adya Clarity possess a health risk to consumers. Merely stating that a product is harmful to consumers does not make it fact.
Contact Adya if you have not received a RFW refund?
Monarch claims that he “followed through with all of these thousands of refunds, because [they] felt it was the ethical thing to do…” However, Adya is in possession of evidence which tends to disprove this claim. In fact, Adya, based on information received from RFW consumers that will be shown if the current litigation goes to trial, believes that Monarch and RFW has failed to satisfy Monarch’s personal promise and advertised guarantee for a full refund.
If you or someone you know, have a valid refund claim and have not received a full refund from RFW, please contact Adya immediately.
We apologize for addressing this matter in the press, but unfortunately, this matter was taken outside of our control by the actions of Monarch, RFW, Adams and Natural News. Adya looks forward to restoring our good name and reputation. Furthermore, Adya looks forward to pursuing all meritorious legal action against individuals who have spread false and misleading information regarding the efficacy of Adya Clarity.

Raw Food World Complaint” which will allow you to see why we (Adya, Inc.) was compelled to take action…never wanting to have this go public in the first place. ”Raw Food World continues to fail and refuse to pay Adya the full balance due of $183,056.50″ As well as, “The retail value of the Adya Clarity sold during this period was approximately $1,714,000.00″ to Matt Monarch, The Raw Food World.
