After reading a newsletter from a health activist website, I got the following few links. I have never been a fan of these sweeteners. They always kind of put me in an unsettled state, then I looked into it and found out that the Bush crime family + Dick Cheney had his fingers in making these kinds of substances Legal + profitable.
Here is the blurb that I read that made me interested in new health risks related to these artificial sweeteners that are known neurotoxins.
“To date, there have only been around 385 human cases identified worldwide (if those identifications are trustworthy, of course), with only 243 (avian flu)deaths. To put the absurdity of this effort into perspective, Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD), which researchers believe is heavily associated with aspartame consumption, is a leading cause of death which, according to the CDC, for example, killed 460,000 Americans in 1999 and the numbers keep rising (http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5106a3.htm). but Aspartame is not under the gun. Instead, Avian Flu is.”
The CDC article did not reference the aspartame at all, it made me wonder.
The newsletter and article did not cite this supposed link with aspartame and SCD, I needed to verify if these people were full of it or not.
It has an interesting list of facts of what aspartame does to the body.
Even more reason for me to poo poo my friends and loved ones not to use this shit.
More dangerous than booze and nicotine…. why would you?
I have found stevia a great natural zero calorie sweetener, and in light of the dangerous nature of these sweeteners, why not just use sugar!
