Artificial Sweetener Disease Making Americans Sick
On my weigh down journey (which you can read about in my blog MAJOR WEIGH DOWN BEGINS) I have minimized sugar. I do not refer to my weigh down journey as a diet. It is a change of eating style. In order to make sure people on a diet still could get their sugar fix, scientist came up with CHEMICALS to put in our food to give us the same taste and effect as sugar. The article I am going to be talking about in this blog caught my interest for three reasons. 1. I am on a weigh down journey. 2. I have had severe fibromyalgia for many years. You will see the connection as we continue. 3.I want to be healthy and stay as natural with my food as possible.
Artificial Sweetener Disease (ASD) is sweeping across America. It is affecting tens of thousands of people. The Western Medicine field calls it anything but what it really is. Instead of (ASD) it is called migraines, muscle pain, ringing in the ears, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, and severe acid reflux. These problems can change with an individual on a daily basis. These are only a few health problems caused from the chemicals and poisons that have been put in our food. To add insult to the American people these sweetners has been approved by the FDA.
Call it anything but what it really is. If we realized what was being allowed in our food through artificial sweeteners, there would be no way we would eat them. If we were told what was actually in sweeteners we would all be outraged! The result of them being cut from the American diet would destroy the artificial sweetener companies. The doctors would not be able to prescribe as many expensive medicines or schedule as many follow up appointments. Drug companies would lose money. So do you really think they are going to encourage research or ban artificial sweeteners? Of course not. They would lose too much money. Sadly, nothing is being done to remove the chemicals in artificial sweeteners from our food.
It is not a coincidence that during the Gulf War, there were many American troops that developed fibromyalgia. They were in 120 degree weather and consumed many many DIET SODAS. They are calling this form of (ASD) “Gulf War Syndrome”. Neither is it a coincidence that more women than men suffer from this disease. Women are much more likely to eat diet food and consume more diet drinks containing artificial sweetener.
I have heard over and over if used in moderation there will be no harmful side effects. There is not enough artificial sweetener in any one item to cause any health issues. There are artificial sweeteners in over 25% of all food, drink, gum and candy available. How much is considered to be moderation? How artificially sweetened items do dieters and non dieters consume each day?
There is not a prescription drug that can cure the problems that artificial sweeteners bring about. However, we all keep looking for drugs that will help with our discomforts and diseases. These drugs cause dangerous and sometimes side effects that are worse than the discomforts or disease themselves. There is a cure for (ASD). Follow the link below to find out what we all need to do to prevent or cure this disease.
There are a couple of alternatives to chemical and poison filled sweeteners. Xylitol or Stevia are both made of natural ingredients. I have tried Xylitol and it taste like and measures like regular refined sugar. It is very easy to cook with.
I am having a kitchen cleaning tomorrow. I am going to make sure all (ASD) causing foods are out of my kitchen, my diet, and my house. I hope you will take a close look at the link below and find a complete list of health problems these sweeteners can cause. Find out what to do to rid yourself of (ASD)
