As usual I am late at coming to the party. This past weekend I went with my son, daughter in law and our little Chloe to Montana. What for, you might ask. Well, to see a practitioner of Alternative Medicine.
Many of you know the many disabilities of Chloe. Some of you know I have health issues. All of you know that many times a medical Dr. cannot help you, so when that happens you try what ever you can find..... and that is what we did. The proof will be in the pudding as they say. I say we are already seeing differences in our family.
While visiting with this gentlemen he brought up many subjects. One of them was aspartame, or also known as phenylalanine. I had never heard of it. DUH.... I bet many of you have not either.
Look at the ingredients in all of your diet foods and drinks, and candy. YOU will find it.
The FDA says it is a fine product. Do you always trust the FDA? I have in the past. Of course in recent years I have come to question a lot of things concerning our food and the FDA.
Do you trust our politicians? Well if you do I have a bridge I want to sell you. In doing more research on the subject of Aspartame I have found that a lot of people (big shots in the government) made a lot of money when they agreed to pass aspartame being put in our food. So what, who cares, if you or I or many many other people get sick and die, yes die from using this product. As long as there is money to be made from the stuff, hey let it stay on our grocery store shelves.
If you want to know more about the subject go here or here or if you want to hear what I think is mostly a bunch of bull $#*%!!!!! Go here this is Aspartame's official site. When doing your research you will find many many sites on the subject.
Now go do your research but, first throw away that diet Coke you are drinking!!!!!!!!!
P.S. You all know how much I love Pepsi, well I have not had one in a month. I have gone down this path before. I hope I can stay on it.
I started drinking Fresca to replace it, only to find out Fresca is full of Aspartame. I guess I will keep looking, meanwhile water is doing the trick.
I realize there are a lot of things in our food that are not good for us. Mary left a very good comment on this topic. I am however, going to stay away from aspartame.
