We all know that both sugar and artificial sweeteners are bad for us, but not many people actually know why. We may think that sugar makes us fat and that artificial sweeteners are unnatural, but this article will tell you just how unnatural these little multi-million dollar packets of “fake” sugar really are.
The Enemies of Artificial Sugar
- Sucralose: SPLENDA is made from sucrose (real table sugar) by replacing atoms with chlorine atoms. Chlorine-carbon structures are the same structure as are in DDT, which is used to kill pesticides.
- Aspartame: Nutra-Sweet is a non-carbohydrate sweetener made of aspartic acid and a methyl ester of phenylananine. This is scientifically proven to cause BRAIN TUMORS. Phenylalanine may cause phenylketonuria (PKU) for people that cannot metabolize it.
- Saccharine: Sweet N’ Low is a non-carbohydrate artificial sweetener banned in Canada as it may cause bladder tumors. The FDA approves it in the U.S.
- Agave Nectar
