Aspartame is Formaldehyde in You

You Can’t Have Your Cake and Eat it Too

Americans were looking for a new sweet savior as the truth about NutraSweet began to leak. We realized that once again we had been duped into thinking that we could have our cake and eat it too.

NutraSweet, or Aspartame, as it turns out has a very dark side. In your body this product of science breaks down into methanol which turns into formaldehyde. lists studies that link Aspartame to:

  • Urinary Tract Tumors
  • Altered gut bacteria
  • Glucose Intolerance
  • Increased rate of brain cancer
  • Decreased kidney function
  • Increased risk of multiple myeloma
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Liver and lung cancer
  • Spatial cognition
  • Hyperglycemia
  • Insulin intolerance
  • Oxidative stress in the brain
  • Neurological dysfunction
  • Greater weight gain

equal-packetsFormaldehyde is great for pickling frogs for science class, but not so great inside you. It is a known carcinogen.

Aspartame is a neurotoxin and causes more than chronic headaches. It is linked to brain cancer, seizures, vision impairment and neurological diseases.

Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon and author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, says neurotoxins contribute to Parkinson’s disease.

I could go on and on with more ways that artificial sweeteners are messing with your brain, but let me just say that some of you are probably enjoying your Aspartame-sweetened diet yogurt or diet soda without realizing the toxic chemical soup that you are ingesting. You may be unknowingly feeding aspartame-laced foods, beverages and vitamins to your kids.

Read labels! Avoid all artificial sweeteners!

What about Splenda?

When it comes to artificial sweeteners, Splenda has risen to the #1 spot in a short amount of time.

Isn’t it supposed to be the “safe” artificial sweetener? Read about Splenda Here.

There are NO safe artificial sweeteners.

Instead, use stevia for a no calorie natural sweetener. I like the brand SweetLeaf.
