Could “Aspartame” be the SCARIEST sweetener yet?by Henry Hound on November 9, 2010
I don’t know how old ya’ll are, but this hound’s been around long enough to remember TAB soda. It tasted nasty (IMO) and contained an artificial sweetener called saccharin. Years later, rat studies showed that saccharin may cause cancer. Is it still on the shelves? Yup. The little pink packets called Sweet-n-Low? However, there is a warning label on the packaging regarding the potential ill effects.
At least you have some warning with saccharin… NOW, we have reason to believe Aspartame, another artificial, chemical sweetener is potentially harmful. Not only that, but does this zero calorie sweetener used in diet products make you GAIN weight?
10,000 complaints, 92 symptoms and death?
|Zero calorie alternative to sugar. We know sugar is addictive and causes us to gain weight.||Sweet is sweet. It is the sweet flavor of sugar that causes our brains to release pleasure hormones. It’s a reward system because sugar provides energy and the body needs energy. (this doesn’t mean sugar is good, keep reading). Aspartame has zero calories… meaning no energy. This confuses the body and makes you crave more sweet… more sugar! A recent Purdue study furthered proved this… keep reading.|
|Does not promote tooth decay.||Okay, I’ll give it that. But! Although tooth decay is a health issue, what about all the other problems with aspartame? Keep reading…|
|Aspartame was found to cause brain tumors in rodents… but even with this knowledge, it was approved by the FDA as being “generally recognized as being safe.” Big business, aspartame!|
|Various reports on the ill effects of aspartame: headaches, memory loss, seizures, vision loss, coma, and cancer.|
|It may worsen or mimic: fibromyalgia, MS, lupus, ADD, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue, and depression.|
The Diet Solution that Makes You GAIN weight…
That recent Purdue study? Test subjects in a Purdue research study, showed that those who consumed artificial sweeteners consumed THREE TIMES the calories compared to those who only consumed plain old sugar. So, even though aspartame is contained in hundreds of diet products such as diet soda and packets of sweeteners, it could be the reason behind your weight gain.
So, what does that mean? Should we drink regular soda and forget about the calories? Nada. Sugar may not be as bad as aspartame, but it’s still BAD for us. Sugar also makes us gain weight AND it’s addictive too. It can lead to insulin resistance and eventually diabetes which can and will lead to heart disease… Not good at all. So, what do we do?
Kickin’ the sugar habit for FREE and finally losing weight…
Listen, I know how it is to have a sweet tooth and with all the false marketing out there, it’s hard to tell if what you are consuming is really a diet product or healthy. Whether it’s high in sugar, high fructose corn syrup, sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners like aspartame, the product label may still lead you to believe it’s okay. AND most of us are addicted to these high flavor, sweet foods that seem to be a staple in our pantries.

Great download! I am a real skeptic – especially with downloads, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by your write-up. It makes sense! A friend recommended Sensa and after reading your site, I am (once again) too skeptical to try."
