‘Artificial Sweetener’

5 Things You May Not Know About Aspartame

Aspartame is a nasty chemical that’s sold as a zero-calorie healthy sweetener. But did you know that it’s technically not calorie-free? Not a lot, only about 4 calories per gram. [1] That isn’t a lot, and it’s not a big deal. But it’s one weird fact you probably didn’t know about aspartame. Let’s take a look at a few other points about aspartame that rarely get discussed. 1. Aspartame is Made from Bacteria Poop The chemical aspartame is made from the waste product of E. coli bacteria. To be blunt, it’s made from bacteria poop. As if that’s not bad enough, the poop is then benzylated and hydrolyzed, and the result of that process is then methylated and debenzylated. [2] Are your eyes crossed from trying to make sense of that? I… Read More

Aspartame has been Renamed and is Now Being Marketed as a Natural Sweetener

Artificial sweeteners especially aspartame has gotten a bad rap over the years, most likely due to studies showing they cause cancer. But not to worry Ajinomoto the company that makes Aspartame has changed the name to AminoSweet. It has the same toxic ingredients but a nice new sounding name. And if you or your child happens to be allergic to Aspartame, well don’t take it personally it’s just business. Despite the evidence gained over the years showing that aspartame is a dangerous toxin, it has remained on the global market . In continues to gain approval for use in new types of food despite evidence showing that it causes neurological brain damage, cancerous tumors, and endocrine disruption, among other things. Most consumers are oblivious to the fact that Aspartame was invented as… Read More

The Toxic Truth About Diet Coke and Slimline Tonic!

Health conscious individuals are usually very particular about their diet and what they prefer to eat and drink. Low fat or sugar free food and drink is the order of the day. Likewise, those who have difficulty controlling their weight and waistline also opt for “slimline” foodstuffs and “diet” drinks in an attempt to rein in blubbery bellies and bulging bums. Those that prefer a good old fashioned cuppa instead of soda will most likely dump the sugar in favour of artificial sweeteners, in an endeavour to lose a few pounds and keep their weight in check. If you are one of the many thousands of people that prefer to drink ‘diet’ or “light” soda over their sugar filled counterparts, or pop sweeteners into your cuppa instead of the real deal, then… Read More

The Two Most Dangerous Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners were initially designed to be sugar substitutes and a helpful tool for the battle against the bulge. Unfortunately, the state of obesity in the world has gotten worse, and artificial sweeteners are clearly not helping. You can find sugar substitutes in diet sodas, yogurt, and a host of other food products. These artificial sweetener additives mimic the flavor of sugar but offer no useful energy and may in fact be toxic. The Two Most Concerning Artificial Sweeteners There are five dangerous sugar substitutes that are approved for consumer use: saccharin, neotame, acesulfame potassium, aspartame, and sucralose. Of the five main artificial sweeteners, sucralose and aspartame are the most pervasive and dangerous substitutes found in products on store shelves today. Sucralose This additive is marketed under the name Splenda. Sucralose is… Read More

2006: New Cancer Study Obligates FDA To Recall Aspartame

From Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum 2-28-6 OPEN LETTER TO FDA – VIA CERTIFIED MAIL DELANEY AMENDMENT: If a product causes cancer in animals it cannot be put in food! The late FDA Toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, testified to the Senate: “In view of all these indications that the cancer-causing potential of aspartame is a matter that had been established way beyond any reasonable doubt, one can ask: What is the reason for the apparent refusal by the FDA to invoke for this food additive the so-called Delaney Amendment to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act? Is it not clear beyond any shadow of a doubt that aspartame has caused brain tumors or brain cancer in animals? “Given that this is so (and I cannot see any kind of tenable argument opposing the… Read More

2004: Diet’ Soft Drinks – Suicide On An Installment Plan

Crumpled Coke Can Poetic Justice 12-14-4 The photo of a crumpled can of Diet Coke told the story in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, 30-1-2000, Coke’s hometown paper. Fitting, poetic, just, but tragic for the company once rated “The Most Admired Business in the World”. Today Coke wouldn’t even make the list. Sales are down, profits collapsing, and 6,000 employees soon will be gone. (To make room for 6,000 defence attorneys?) The tragedy is stupendously larger than 6,000 jobs; it affects hundreds of millions of unwarned, innocent, afflicted consumers across the broad face of planet earth. * This crisis can’t be solved by belt tightening, greater efficiency, more advertising, etc. It’s so bad Coke can’t say the word; to pronounce it will bring instant cataclysm. That word is aspartame, and their only recourse… Read More

2003: Xylitol: Our Sweet Salvation?

by Sherill Sellman From: The SPECTRUM Vol. 4 No. 8; February 2003, p.23 — www.thespectrumnews.org Editor’s note: Considering the quantity of sugar we all consume in one way or another each day, sometimes not by choice, the following is perhaps the most important health article to come along in quite some time, and should be shared as widely as possible with family and friends of ALL ages. Many of you readers of this publication are quite familiar with the various business and “health” reasons why the New World Order gang of misfits have long been promoting sugar (and even nastier artificial sweeteners) to help with their sinister control and depopulation agendas. Obviously, on the way to ruining our physical and mental health, a lot of money can be made through “managing” medical… Read More

Methanol: Is Aѕраrtаmе now Illegal/unsafe in California?

Cаlifоrniаn Health Authorities are concerned over the Reproductive/Development Toxicity of methyl alcohol, mеthаnоl (H3COH) OEHHA set a maximum daily dose level fоr it in Cаlifоrniа commencing July 2013. Aspartame’s Mеthаnоl falls foul of the new regulation. Mеthаnоl is one of the most widely used industrial chemicals. It is a severe metabolic toxin fоr humans. Anyone handling pure is subject to strict Occupational Hеаlth (OHSA) regulations, the key messages being Don’t drink it – Don’t breathe it in — Don’t get it on your skin. A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) must be available to anyone receiving оr handling methanol, which outlines the dangers and safety requirements of handling & processing mеthаnоl Mеthаnоl is also present in minute quantities in some foods, fruits, dark red wines, etc, but is harmless since it is… Read More

WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE USED ASPARTAME

By Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. (c) 2003 Web Site: http://www.russellblaylockmd.com The most important starting point of any detoxification program is to stop exposure to the toxin or toxins. This means avoiding even small amounts, since once sensitized to the toxin even minute amounts can produce full-blown toxicity. This is especially so with accumulative toxins, such as aspartame. It has been shown conclusively that the metabolic products of methanol breakdown, formaldehyde in particular, accumulates on the DNA and cellular proteins. Once you have cleansed your diet of the toxin, removal of the toxin and its metabolic products from your system will begin. Central to this process is the body’s detoxification system, which exist in all cells of the body, with the bulk of detoxification taking place in the liver. The detoxification system is divided… Read More

Splenda

by author Sandra Tonn, RHN With increasing awareness about the dangers of chemical sugar substitutes such as aspartame, consumers are searching for a replacement.What about Splenda???? they ask me, hoping to receive some assurance from a nutritionist that they can enjoy their sweets without calories or adverse health effects. They eagerly insist, Its made from sugar, so its natural,??? and wait for permission to indulge.Just Add ChlorineI wondered how an artificial sweetener could be natural and decided to investigate. The patented multi-step process starts with cane sugar. Three hydrogen-oxygen groups on the sugar molecule (sucrose) are replaced with three chlorine atoms, resulting in an artificial compound that is approximately 600 times sweeter than sugar. This compound, which was named sucralose, is chemically stable and, therefore, stands up to high temperatures without losing… Read More
