This is a very old article that I thought was worth sharing with all of you. It’s amazing how dumb of a species we are. Our ignorance is killing us. Here’s how it reads:
“Whether you’re a calorie counter, a diabetic or simply someone trying to limit the carbohydrate in her diet, there’s a new low-calorie sweetener on the market sure to interest you. Already used in soft drinks, aspartame is not an artificial sweetener. It’s actually a combination of two amino acids, the building blocks for protein, and has amazing sweetening power – almost 200 times that of sugar. Unlike some artificial sweeteners, the tabletop version has a clean flavor and no bitter aftertaste.”
“Sold in drug and food stores as Equal, it comes in powder and tablet form. One packet of powder has the same sweetening effect as 2 teaspoons of sugar, but adds only 4 calories compared to 36 for 2 teaspoons of sugar. It can be used over cereals, fruits and in some recipes.”
Well there you have it folks! What it doesn’t tell you is that it’s the only product on the market that breaks the blood-brain barrier and causes neurological damage over time. Apartame…legal poison.
