How much sugar and what kind is safe?

Sunday, January 30, 2011

I had no idea that the water I was getting from Walmart had aspertame in it. I also had no idea how dangerous aspertame is.
Here is what I found online after being told in a child care food program class about the dangers of aspertame.

From 10,000 consumer complaints the FDA compiled a list of 92 Symptoms reported from aspartame use, including death.

FDA list of 92 aspartame-related symptoms:

Abdominal Pain
Anxiety Attacks
Arthritis, Asthma
Asthmatic Reactions
Edema (Fluid Retention)
Blood Sugar Control Problems (Hypoglycemia or Hyperglycemia)
Brain Cancer (Pre-approval studies in animals)
Breathing Difficulties
Burning Eyes or Throat
Burning Urination
Can't Think Straight
Chest Pains
Chronic Cough
Chronic Fatigue
Excessive Thirst or Hunger
Feel Unreal
Flushing of Face
Hair Loss (Baldness) or Thinning of Hair
Hearing Loss
Heart Palpitations
Hives (Urticaria)
Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
Impotency and Sexual Problems
Inability to Concentrate
Infection Susceptibility
Joint Pains
"Like Thinking in a Fog"
Marked Personality Changes
Memory loss
Menstrual Problems or Changes
Migraines and Severe Headaches (Trigger or Cause From Chronic Intake)
Muscle spasms, Nausea or Vomiting, Numbness or Tingling of Extremities
Other Allergic-Like Reactions
Panic Attacks
Poor Memory
Rapid Heart Beat
Seizures and Convulsions

Also Splenda is clorinated in processing
Equal has been proven to cause cancers
and so much more.

I did learn though that Stevia and agave nectar, sugar cane sugar, molasses, brown rice syrup and honey are healthier options than products that are chemically altered. I am definetly changing my way of eating.
