Aspartame poisoning

Diet soda graphic

A lot of people drink diet sodas, believing they are making a healthy choice in beverages that do not contain sugar. WRONG! I challenge you to do some research on Aspartame and determine to make some better choices for your future health.

A 2003 report completed by the Aspartame Toxicity Information Center documented various consumer-reported toxicity effects of the sweetener… The most common effects were headaches, dizziness, confusion, memory loss, blurred vision, severe depression, irritability, anxiety attacks and severe drowsiness or sleepiness.” Another documented side effect actually includes gradual weight gain. Now that surely blows the thinking that diet sodas will support healthy weight management, doesn’t it?

After you do your own research, you might like to look into these natural sweeteners available from Young Living: Blue Agave Natural Sweetener, Yacon Syrup, Stevia Extract, and an essential oil dietary supplement that supports pancreas function, Slique Essence.  All these options are pure, safe and healthy!

Your Brain on Aspartame

This Is Your Brain On Aspartame

Yesterday we looked at aspartame as associated with heart disease and other chronic conditions. Before I move on to a different subject, I want to also alert you to another reason to avoid aspartame…brain health.

Recently holistic health coach Margie King wrote about the effects of aspartame on the brain (click here to read the article). She started by reminding us of the many negative side effects of this deadly chemical. “Reported problems include headaches, migraines, vision problems, tinnitus, depression, joint pain, insomnia, heart palpitations, and muscle spasms,” 

What she said next made me sit up and take note: “Recently researchers from the University of North Dakota wanted to test the safe limits of aspartame over a short period of time.  They found that at just one half of the FDA’s “safe” acceptable daily intake, aspartame caused serious neuro-behavioral changes including cognitive impairment, irritable moods, and depression.” 

Wait a minute here!  Half the amount that the FDA says is safe causes serious problems in the brain? So who is the FDA protecting here? Me or some corporate giant? Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

Then I think about all the brain fog going on among young people. Not to mention early onset Alzheimer’s, Dementia, depression, mood swings, and more. I say, let’s get off this train and the sooner the better! Go back and look at yesterday’s suggestions for essential oils that can be used to flavor your water and are healthy for you!

Then also look at some of Young Living’s alternative sweeteners!

Death by Aspartame

Aspartame Dangers

I have long known the LONG LIST of negatives about aspartame and avoid it like the plague!

In a recent article, Dr. Mercola highlighted several facts you may or may not be aware of.

  • One of the largest studies of its kind found that drinking just two diet drinks a day can increase your risk of an early death from heart disease by 50 percent
  • Previous research looking at aspartame toxicity also found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia
  • Despite being promoted for weight loss, foods and beverages with artificial sweeteners have never been proven to help weight loss. Studies that look at this actually find artificial sweeteners promote weight gain

One that caught my eye is the risk of early death linked to heart disease! Hmmm… Let’s see… You have diabetes or want to lose weight so you decide to drink diet sodas, Well how about adding a heart attack to that cocktail? Sorry, I’ll pass on that one!

So next time you order a diet soda, maybe stop and think about the risks. Maybe just order a glass of water and add a few drops of essential oil instead!  Here are some of my favorites:

Aspartame: Putting the DIE Into Dieting Since 1981

Aspartame: Putting the DIE Into Dieting Since 1981

Male rat with lymphoma following aspartame treatment.

Pushed globally as a beneficial to dieters since its approval in 1981, accumulating research indicates that aspartame may actually damage the brain and cause cancer, to name but a few of a wide range of adverse health effects consumers risk by using this ‘no-calorie’ sugar alternative.

GreenMedInfo.com recently posted an article about Aspartame written By: Sayer Ji.
Some of the main points include:
  • Is Aspartame a boon for Diabetics and the Overweight?
  • Is Aspartame good for your teeth?
  • Aspartame is carcinogenic
  • Aspartame is neurotixic
Conclusion
Beyond cancer-promoting and brain-damaging properties, aspartame like any chemical that does not belong in the human body is just another avoidable chemical exposure that we should go to great lengths to eliminate, as it will likely contribute to the entire gamut of diseases that commonly afflict opulent societies who rather than reduce the over consumption of nutritive sweeteners would rather attempt to trick and/or poison themselves with non-nutritive ‘alternatives.’  For more information on aspartame’s adverse health effects go to our research page on the topic :http://www.greenmedinfo.com/toxic-ingredient/aspartame

When it comes to dieting, stick with the moderate consumption of naturally sweet foods, especially high-quality, organically-produced fruits. There are also sweet substances, such as honeyxylitol and even stevia, that may provide a natural alternative to synthetic/artificial sweeteners. But be forewarned, even natural low- or no-calorie sweeteners may participate in unintended, adverse consequences of divorcing caloric content from the sensation of sweetness, subsequently stimulating appetite ‘back lash.’

As long as we remember that no form of dieting is worth dying for, and try to stay away from ‘tricking’ our body into thinking its getting something its not, we should be able to reach our ideal weight by exerting a good balance of patience and discipline with ourselves.
