So Sweet - Yeah, Maybe NOT
We all know eating too much sugar is Bad for you...with a capital B. But, if you've been thinking that eating "sugar free" products will be better, THINK AGAIN.
Artificial sweeteners like aspartame are safer, are chemicals. Chemicals that your body doesn't recognize as food. So don't think you're doing the right thing by using products artificially sweetened with aspartame.
Because you'd be DEAD wrong... well, maybe that's a slight exaggeration but don't be surprised to learn that
corporations, government-sponsored regulatory agencies and politicians are more interested in lining their pockets than protecting your health and the health of your loved ones by confusing the issue and making you think that you'll be watching your weight and eating/drinking more healthy if you delete sugar from your diet.
Marketers and others with financial interests have successfully convinced millions of consumers the chemicals used in artificially sweetened products are safe. Don’t believe them!
If you don't believe me, read this article here by Dr. Mercola or listen to this episode of Dr. Oz.
All I'm saying is that if it's a man-made chemical that you can buy in a store, you might want to avoid lining someone's pockets with your money and doing . . . who knows what to your health. I'd rather consume a little natural sweetness, like honey, sugar, fruit juice, etc.
Any way, it never hurts to read the labels and stay away from high-fructose corn syrup! Oh but that's another blog post for another day. . . or thought for Thursday.
