Sugarfree Doesn’t Mean Safe or Healthy: The Myth About Artificially Sweetened Candies, Cookies, Drinks, Etc.

Granted, I’m alarmed about the dangers of sugars and refined carbs and how the typical American’s over consumption of them can lead to a host of ailments, including heart disease, cancer, depression and early aging, but why do companies and people automatically assume that chemically produced, made-in-the-lab, "fake" sweeteners are any better than sugar?

Please, folks, research the subject before you inject foods with Splenda, aspartame, ace-K, sugar alcohols, etc. up. Bear in mind that these products don’t come from Mother Nature — they’re made in a lab.

If you’re thinking about kicking or cutting back on sugar and refined carbs and want to replace them with artificial sweeteners, please read the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) section of my book SUGAR SHOCK! first, where I answer popular queries about artificial sweeteners, thanks to the help of several artificial sweeteners experts and medical studies.

  1. I know it sounds weird coming from me, but I really don’t like artificial sweeteners. I don’t think that tricking our bodies is a good idea in the long run.
    I really hate seeing artificial sweeteners marketed to children too. I think growing bodies need wholesome, real food in order to learn good habits.

  2. 13 mainstream research studies in 24 months showing aspartame toxicity, also 3 relevant studies on methanol and formaldehyde: Murray 2007.09.28

    Aspartame toxicity was shown in thirteen detailed mainstream research studies in 24 months in work by expert teams in South Africa, England, Italy, Greece, Hungary, and Mexico.
    Very little has been publicized in mass print and broadcast media.
    Also highly relevant are a study in South Korea that finds levels of methanol similar to those from aspartame drinks cause the hangovers from alcohol drinks, a study in China on Alzheimer’s type damage in nerve cells from low dose formaldehyde, and an IARC review by 25 experts that determines formaldehyde to be a human carcinogen.
