Lately, I accidentally browsed a website about artificial sugar like Equal, NutraSweet and etc. which are harmful to our health. Aspartame is 200 times sweeter than the normal sugar without calorie. Whether it is true or not using artificial is really not normal. The best way to lost weight or avoid diabetes is to lower the intake of sugar not by using alternative products which are artificial. It might take you a year to get your ideal weight but at less it is safety.
Aspartame is a compound composed of:
• 1) phenylalanine (50%) which can be neurotoxic and in some susceptible people will cause seizures
• 2) aspartic acid (40%) which can cause brain damage in the developing brain
• 3) methanol (10%) which turns into formaldehyde embalming fluid an obvious toxin.
There is even a book about it which is called “The deadly deception” that tells the development of Aspartame and how it was passed in FDA or Food and Drugs Association.
Stop using it if you have symptoms like the following:
• Hearing Loss
• Numbness of Extremities
• Blurred Vision
• Blindness/Eye Problems
• Memory Loss
• Slurred Speech
• Mild to Suicidal Depression
• Personality Changes
• Mood Changes
• Anxiety Attacks
• Hyperactivity (child or adult)
• Gastrointestinal Disorders
• Skin Lesions
• Muscle Cramps
• Joint Pain
• Menstrual Irregularities
• Chest Pain
• Increased Appetite
If you find a depress person alone sitting on a bench ask him what he is drinking, maybe a light cola with zero calories? Mother Nature does not want us to consume artificial foods and drinks.
