Is everyone out there "Brain Dead"?
Everywhere that I go, I see people guzzling diet sodas, spiking their tea and coffee with "sugar substitutes", and eating sugar-free "diet" foods – blithely ingesting a deadly poison.
Maybe the word hasn’t gotten out yet about ASPARTAME…
Aspartame is linked to brain cancer, brain lesions, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, epilepsy, neuro-endocrine disorders, memory and hearing loss, hormonal problems, vision problems, headaches, ear buzzing, dizziness, nausea and gastrointestinal disturbances, weakness, numbness and shooting pains in your extremities, and behavioral disturbances. If you don’t believe me, watch this video of an old "60 MINUTES" episode:
Diet soda is a major source of aspartame in most people’s diets, but there are thousands of other potential sources of aspartame. Sold commercially under names like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, Equal-Measure and Canderel, aspartame is found in:
• Diet sodas, juice drinks, and flavored waters
• Chewing gum
• Table-top sweeteners
• Diet and diabetic foods
• Breakfast cereals, such as Fiber One
• Fiber supplements, such as orange flavored Metamucil
• Certain vitamins (including children’s), as well as
• Prescription and over the-counter drugs such as Alka Seltzer Plus, and some Tylenol medications
To avoiding ingesting this poison, you need to read the ingredients label on every thing you buy to make sure it doesn’t contain aspartame.
In addition to ASPARTAME, the artificial sweetener SPLENDA has recently been linked to serious health concerns:
James Turner, the chairman of the national consumer education group Citizens for Health, has expressed shock and outrage after reading a new report from scientists outlining the dangers of the artificial sweetener Splenda (sucralose). In animals examined for the study, Splenda reduced the amount of good bacteria in the intestines by 50 percent, increased the pH level in the intestines, contributed to increases in body weight and affected P-glycoprotein (P-gp) levels in such a way that crucial health-related drugs could be rejected. The P-gp effect could result in medications used in chemotherapy, AIDS treatment and treatments for heart conditions being shunted back into the intestines, rather than being absorbed by the body. According to Turner, "The report makes it clear that the artificial sweetener Splenda and its key component sucralose pose a threat to the people who consume the product. Hundreds of consumers have complained to us about side effects from using Splenda and this study … confirms that the chemicals in the little yellow package should carry a big red warning label."
