Medical experts are saying that sweeteners like Aspartame “might be bad for you”. That is an extraordinary understatement. Clever marketing has done an effective job of making people believe that diet products are healthy – not true!
There are very few foods more damaging to your health than refined sugar, but if there is one that is worse, it’s Aspartame (also named APM, Equal, Nutra-Sweet and Spoonful)
It’s A Poison: Aspartame is an artificial sweetener that is 200 times sweeter than sugar and will quite possibly poison you with regular use
Does It Help You Lose Weight? No, in fact you are more likely to gain weight. Diet drinks are NOT diet products, they are chemically altered products containing sodium and sweetener that make you crave carbs that are likely to make you gain weight. In fact medical trials have demonstrated that people who ditch all diet products will often lose weight
What’s It Made Of? Amongst other delightful ingredients, Aspartame contains Methanol (an alcohol). When the Methanol content enters the body it is metabolised in to Formaldehyde then Formic Acid, the poison within the sting of fire ants. Methanol toxicity mimics among other things, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus and many people have been diagnosed in error
What Are The Symptoms Of Aspartame Poisoning? Fibromyalgia, spasms, shooting pains, leg numbness, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision and memory loss
Diabetes: Aspartame plays havoc with blood sugar levels. Diabetics can suffer acute memory loss due to Aspartic acid and phenylalanine contained within it, because they behave like neurotoxins. When Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier it damages brain neurons, which may result in mental conditions
ADHD: Children with ADHD can experience significant improvements in behaviour when these chemicals are removed from their diets.
All of a sudden a nice glass of water sounds very appealing!
