If you are worried about diabetes or know someone with diabetes, you need to read this article. In this article, I go into great detail exposing the secrets about diabetes and breaking down the common food ingredients that promote diabetes…Most of us have been conditioned at an early age to believe that low calorie drinks are healthy and good for us. Because of this, it is not surprising that most diabetics think that diet soda is good for them. To understand if diet soda is healthy for diabetics, we need to turn our attention to the artificial sweetener called aspartame.

Beverage manufacturers have done such a great job deceiving consumers about diet soda that most of them think that diet soda is a healthier alternative to regular soda. This is an assumption that consumers will regret later on in life if they do not reduce their diet soda consumption, or stop drinking it. One of the most dangerous ingredients found in diet soda is artificial sweetener. Aspartame (also known as AminoSweet) and sucralose (also known as Splenda) are two of the most common artificial sweeteners found in diet soda.
Neurotoxins are substances that interact with nerve cells by overstimulating them to death or interrupting their communication process. This process is harmful to nerve cells because it can fry them or reduce their functions. Studies have shown that neurotoxins can shorten the life span of nerve cells and contribute to neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s Chorea and Parkinson’s.
There are currently more than a dozen artificial sweetener in the market but one of the most dangerous and widely used is aspartame. This sugar substitute is a synthetic substance made up of methanol (wood alcohol), aspartic acid and phenylalanine. When aspartame reaches the small intestine, it reacts to certain enzyme that causes it to release methanol. Methanol is considered very toxic to the human body and can cause blindness or even death. It is important to know that some fruit juice do contain methanol but they also usually contain ethanol, the antidote for methanol. Aspartame can also release a byproduct called aspartate which is an excitatory amino acid.
Food additives are popular among food manufacturers because they can reduce cost and intensify the flavor of their food products. Food additives can also increase the shelf-life of food products which is great for their businesses. Most food additives are harmful to the body because they are usually created through unnatural processes, and added with other harmful chemicals.
The drug amphetamine is classified as an excitotoxins by private drug researchers. They suggested that amphetamine stimulates certain nerve cells to death, which is why they believed it is a major contributor to Parkinson’s disease. The way amphetamine stimulates nerve cells cause them to deplete their ATP and phocreatinine faster. Excitotoxins such as amphetamine, MSG and aspartame (an artificial sweetener), destroy nerve cells similar to how power surges destroy electrical devices but just not as intense. Private drug researchers found that amphetamine can cause destruction to a group of neurons that is a part of the nigrostriatal system.
Headache is such a common thing in the United States that more than half of Americans suffer from some sort of headache. Some common causes of headaches are: stress, lack of sleep, eyestrain, head injury, viral infection, unhealthy diets, smoking and drinking. There are many headache relief remedies, below are some great examples.
There are many sugar substitute out there but many of them are not good for you. Artificial sweetener is a popular sugar substitute but is also dangerous. Independent studies suggested that many artificial sweeteners are toxic to the body, especially the brain and nervous system. Your body reacts to artificial sweetener like they are foreign agents because of their unnatural chemical structure. Many artificial sweeteners work by overstimulating the neurons within cells.
MSG is added to a wide variety of food, such as soups, fast food, chips, frozen foods, microwave foods, canned foods, junk foods and even baby food. Many independent researchers who are not influenced by the food industry, suggested that MSG played an important role for neurodegenerative brain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease. Neuroscientists classified MSG as an excitotoxin because they believe it destoys nuerons in cells.
Equal, also known as Aspartame, NutraSweet and Spoonful, is one of the most widely used artificial sweetener in the United States. Found in more than 6,000 products nationwide, Equal is now a part of our daily lives. Even though the FDA confirmed that Equal is safe, independent researchers claimed that it is not and can cause cancer, obesity, diabetes, headaches, blindness, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and seizures. So, which one should you believe? The FDA or independent researchers? My advise is to trust the independent researchers more than the FDA because independent researchers are not influenced by money from food and drug companies.
