Aspartame: Don't Be Fooled

Through slick marketing, you may have been fooled to believe that artificial sweetener is a better choice than real sugar. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Of all adverse food reactions, Aspartame is responsible for 75%. The most common reaction is headaches or migraines, but some other reactions are much more severe, including seizures, depression and even death. Aspartame is an excitotoxin which over-stimulates your brain, even to the point of death. It also depletes your brain of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain that regulates your mood. Aspartame also causes the formation of formaldehyde (same as embalming fluid) within the body which cannot be eliminated. This formaldehyde wreaks havoc on your body, causing destruction of protein and damage to DNA, further leading to breast and prostate cancer and brain tissue damage.
There were many years that Aspartame was denied approval by the FDA. Until enough money was spent and the right people brought into office, it remained ‘too toxic’ for human consumption. Though the formula hasn’t changed, magically the toxic substance is ‘safe’ for you to eat. You may not be surprised to learn that Aspartame is now owned by Monsanto.
What Monsanto (yes, the GMO giant) doesn’t want you to know is that when cancer cells are exposed to Aspartame, they spread more rapidly and metastasize quicker. It was also discovered, by Harvard University, that there is a clear link between blood cancers (leukemia, myeloma) and Aspartame consumption of one diet soda per day.
If you consume Aspartame and are suffering with illness, don’t assume it’s something else. Aspartame toxicity can behave like a host of other, more easily diagnosed conditions.
To test the effects of Aspartame on your body, eliminate all artificial sweetener from your diet for 2 weeks. Then, bring back 3 servings per day to test your reaction. Monitor how you felt before the reintroduction and after. But remember, even if you don’t feel a difference, it doesn’t mean you are immune to the above mentioned effects.
Choose safer sweetening options like Stevia, Luohan, and Dextrose which are all-natural.
