While eating too much refined sugar can cause weight gain, compromise the immune system, promote emotional instability, cause numerous physical problems, and is the second most common cause of the physical problems being experienced today, using artificial sweeteners have the potential of being even more dangerous than the real thing.
REGARDING DIET SODAS
Do low calorie soft drinks contribute to weight loss? Absolutely not! Rather, low calorie soft drinks contribute to weight gain. In reality, those who drink the most diet drinks have the most problems with their weight.
Researcher Michael Tordoff reported that artificial sweeteners increase the appetite:
“We found that hunger increases after drinking just a liter of aspartame sweetened soda.”
ASPARTAME IS A DANGEROUS DRUG
Aspartame is marketed as ‘Equal’ and ‘NutraSweet’, and has the potential of doing great harm to the body.
When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in Aspartame converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis.
Aspartame changes the brains chemistry, causing seizures. It can change the dopamine level in the brain, aggravating Parkinson’s problems. It can cause birth defects. The Congressional Record says,
“It makes you crave carbohydrates and will make you FAT.”
Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon says of Aspartame,
“The ingredients stimulate the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees.”
The Conference of the American College of Physicians report, “We are talking about a plague of neurological diseases caused by this deadly poison”.
SPLENDA – ANOTHER DANGEROUS DRUG
Splenda is a chlorocarbon poison that contributes to weight gain; reduces good bacteria in intestines; causes enlargement of liver and kidneys; reduces red blood cell count; causes aborted pregnancies; and causes thymus to shrink (the thymus is your immune powerhouse, producer of “T” cells – our cancer protectors).
ARTIFICIAL SUGARS HIDDEN IN MANY FOODS
Often, these artificial sugars are hidden in things that say “artificial and natural flavors.” Learn to read labels of the processed foods you consume. Since the FDA will not step in and ban the use of these dangerous artificial sugars, the only means available to stopping there use is to not use any product containing them.
HALLELUJAH ACRES DIET CONTAINS NO ARTIFICIAL SUGARS
Those who have adopted the Hallelujah Acres Diet, and prepare their own foods from natural and organic sources have no need for concern. Freshly prepared vegetable juices, salads, smoothies, and freshly prepared cooked vegetables, and if a person does not consume products coming from boxes, cans, plastic and glass containers, automatically avoids these dangerous artificial sugars.
