How many times have you heard this? “It will be different this time, I swear. We had some problems in the past, but this time, we have it figured out. Trust me.” Ask your psycho-therapist if this is healthy.
When this lie comes from big-corporate-government-business, we fall for it every time. Take artificial sweeteners for example. I am amazed at the lengths that our species will go for the taste of ‘sweet’. We will believe any lie that is about something we’re addicted to.
It’s all over the news again – but this time scientists have proven something that we already know, again. Artificial sweeteners are really bad. Not only are they bad, they make you fatter, often lead to diabetes and mock the symptoms of many neurological disorders.
We have taken the quest for ‘consequence-free sweetness’ way too far.
I will argue that our sweet-taste addiction is worse than any other substance addiction. It has caused more health issues and misery for more people than any banned substance. It beats alcohol for ruining lives, without the buzz – how cruel!
We’re so nervous that our kids will be exposed to ‘street-drugs’ but we’ll feed them foods loaded with aspartame. We’re scared to death of getting fat from our addictions, so we replace the calories with harmful chemicals to maintain our poor behavior instead of working on the cause of the poor behavior.
Here is another great statement from the Diabetes Association of America released way back in 2012 – artificial sweeteners “when used judiciously, could facilitate reductions in added sugar”, and thus influence weight loss. Here is what America hears – “It’s ok to go willy-nilly on ‘diet-foods’ in order to lose weight.”
Here is a quick breakdown on what aspartame does to you:
Poisoning from aspartame is often misdiagnosed because the symptoms mock other diseases. Aspartame changes the ratio of amino acids in the blood, blocking or lowering the levels of serotonin, tyrosine, dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline. Because of this, aspartame symptoms cannot be detected in lab tests and on x-rays.
If you could make a substance that you could sell to every major food manufacturer, in which the origins of negative side effects could not be identified, you’ll be rich too!
Aspartate and glutamate act as neurotransmitters in the brain by passing information from neuron to neuron. Too much aspartate or glutamate in the brain kills certain neurons by allowing the influx of too much calcium into the cells. This influx triggers excessive amounts of free radicals, which kill the cells. The neural cell damage that can be caused by excessive aspartate and glutamate is why they are referred to as “excitotoxins.” They “excite” or stimulate the neural cells to death. Some people, like myself, get a really weird-sick-feeling after a meal that has MSG in it because of this.
Why are food allergies on an exponential increase, especially in children? Maybe it’s not the peanuts. Maybe it’s the aspartame we’re feeding our kids all day long. The blood-brain barriers are not yet developed in young children which makes them extra-susceptible to chemicals that cross it, like aspartame.
Aspartame accounts for over 75% of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious, including seizures and death.
Dr. Russell L. Blaylock is a professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of Mississippi. He makes use of almost 500 scientific references in his book on the topic to show how excess free excitatory amino acids such as aspartic acid and glutamic acid (about 99 percent of monosodium glutamate or MSG is glutamic acid) in our food supply are causing serious chronic neurological disorders and a myriad of other acute symptoms.
Dr. Blaylock left a successful practice in neurosurgery to pursue research on aspartame, GMOs and other approved substances that are killing us because of his experience with so many mysterious neurological disorders.
This is the tip of the iceberg on this topic. I am writing this to get you to look into it for yourself. It’s not difficult to avoid artificial sweeteners. Chemicals that are deemed safe by ‘the man’ and how they may be killing us, after a hefty hospital bill of course, is a big problem and worth paying attention to.
