If you only do one thing for your health this year—watch the video below!
Do you use Nutrasweet, Equal or Splenda? Almost every food listed as sugar free—diet colas, diet teas, sugar-free gum, popsicles, etc.—contain these dangerous ingredients; aspartame and sucralose.
I’ve been changing my diet to a healthier one. Like most people, one of the first things I did was replace colas with diet colas. Then I replaced sugar in my coffee with a sugar substitute. I switched from a sugary yogurt to sugar-free yogurt.
Eventually I gave up all colas but continued to eat sugar-free yogurt. I assumed Yoplait Light was healthy. Most “light” or sugar-free yogurts contain aspartame and high fructose corn syrup. I was consuming at least one and usually two containers per day. Once I research the dangers of aspartame I ordered a yogurt maker.
This video explains the dangers. For more information see the health articles below.
My Mother is Wheelchair Shopping
My mother sits in a chair all day. She can barely walk with a walker. I have explained the dangers of Splenda to her, she still uses it every day. My father is looking for a wheelchair. I’m sending her this DVD hoping and praying she will give up artificial sweeteners.
Why isn’t Aspartame Banned?
Billions of Reasons: $$$
Dr. Christine Lydon, MD reported:
Of approximately 100 independent studies conducted on aspartame, over 90 percent have demonstrated significant health risks.
This would lead to the question “why hasn’t aspartame been banned?” In 1996, ignoring the fact that aspartame breaks down faster when heated above 86 degrees Fahrenheit, the FDA decided to remove any remaining limitations on its use.
Presently, there are thousands of companies using aspartame in diet sodas, powdered drinks, gelatin, tea, coffee, cocoa, juices, frozen desserts and even vitamins and medications. This translates to billions of dollars worldwide.
Unfortunately, this is more than enough to provide agency officials with lucrative future employment, politicians with campaign funds, non-profit foundations with endowments, scientists with research grants and the media with advertising dollars.

It has a delicious and refreshing taste and contains proteins, fiber, iron, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, zinc, vitamins A and C, and an oil which contains 53 other constituents.
