Sweet Tasting Poison (Aspartame)
Deadly Diet Drinks
I was actually shocked to find out that over 92 health problems can be linked to "Aspartame Poisoning" brought on by the consumption of Aspartame. There have been deaths that have been caused by "Aspartame Poisoning" but yet amazingly it is still allowed to be used in our foods as an artificial sweetener. The reason for this boils down to the trillions of dollars that the corporations and retailers make of selling products like Aspartame especially in diet products. Even though they are largely aware of the serious life threatening side effects Aspartame can cause they just quite simply don't care. All they see are the trillions of dollars profit they are recieving even though they are poisoning our foods that we the consumers are unaware of for the most part. One of the more common products that have aspartame in them are diet soft drinks; if you are someone who drinks diet colas etc. I would strongely advice picking a healthier choice in drinks.
The corporations that are selling you these products know all to well about the awful side effects of Aspartame they just don't want us the consumers of their products to know. That is why they will try to discredit the scientific prove that Aspartame is indeed a deadly poison. If you would like to learn more about this topic there is a great website: sweetpoison.com that is offered by Dr. Janet Starr Hull who also wrote a book on this subject called "Sweet Poison". Within the book she talks about her own personal life threatening experience when she herself had Aspartame Poisoning. She is also the creator of the Aspartame Detox Program in which she guides you on how to detox yourself naturally.
Side Effects-Health Problems
Aspartame can lead to a number of difficult side effects which can vary from immediate to gradually occurring. Some of the list of health problems is: neurological damage, cancer, severe depression, slurring of speech, memory loss, hearing impairment, blindness, and even death. Aspartame is also known to mimic illnesses such as: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Post-Polio Syndrome, Lyme disease, Alzeimer's disease, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis and the list goes on.
Skull and Crossbones
The manufacturers and the retailers should at the very least put the symbol of a skull and crossbones on each food item that contains Aspartame as they are basically selling a poison that does and can have life threatening side effects. Next time when shopping for your groceries try and avoid any products with Aspartame in them. We as consumers must become more aware of what we are really buying as we certainly cannot trust the retailers and manufacturers to do the right thing and stop producing and selling poisonous products such as Aspartame.
