The FDA should make it mandatory for energy drink manufacturers to put warning labels on their products because most of their energy drink products contain very high levels of synthetic vitamins and stimulant compounds. Two of the most hazardous synthetic chemicals that are commonly found in energy drinks and energy shots are aspartame and sucralose. Aspartame and sucralose are synthetic sugars that have strong excitotoxin properties; therefore, they do a great job destroying nerve cells.
Aspartame is a synthetic sugar made up of methanol (wood alcohol), aspartic acid and phenylalanine. Aspartame is very toxic to the body, because when it reaches the small intestine, it reacts to certain enzyme that causes it to release methanol. Methanol is very toxic to the human body because it can cause blindness and even death. Most consumers of aspartame do not realize that a large portion of aspartame is made from the fecal matter of genetically modified bacteria.
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.
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.
Stevia is a herb that has a sweetness similar to sugar. In its natural state, stevia is about 15 times sweeter than table sugar. Unlike artificial sweetener such as aspartame, natural stevia (organic) has no known side effects which is why it is becoming very popular as a sugar substitute.
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.
Artificial sweetener is many time sweeter than regular sugar (sucrose) and is popular in weight loss, prevention of tooth decay and people with insulin deficiency. However, independent studies have shown that it actually promote weight gain and diabetes. There are many controversy about how artificial sweeteners can cause cancer. Certain studies have confirmed that some artificial sweeteners can cause cancer in rats.
