This information is a must read. There have been whispers for a long time that there is a problem with certain artificial sweeteners, but now it is almost beyond doubt. Since it is a huge industry and a lot of money is involved, a few companies stand to lose in the 100s of millions of dollars so this information is not common public knowledge yet, but see it comnig out through the courts very soon. Let your friends who use sweeteners read this page so at least they can have a choice. We are especially concerned about older folks, young children and expecting mothers. Many unsuspecting folks chew gum containing these sweeteners thinking that they are doing them self’s a favor, be careful as this way the sweeteners are absorbed directly through the roof of the mouth into the brain, if you must chew gum choose one with real sugar. We advise you to stay away from diet products especially diet soda ,diet coke, diet Pepsi, diet Sprite, Pepsi light, Pepsi max . Anything diet or sugar free look on the label carefully and see if it contains NutriSweet or Aspartame( Also known as 951 ) there are many names it takes. We like to talk about positive things on this site so enough said!
We recommend you take a look at the herb Stevia if you want to cook with something sweet.

In the keynote address by the EPA, they announced that there was an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, and they did not understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant across the United States. I explained that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.
