Forgot to add that I do envy you all that take consideration in your health on a daily basis. I do too, I eat well and do care about what goes into my body, but it almost feels forsaken being that I still smoke. I want off these things. It's just doesn't feel whole unless I do.

Thanks! I'm not trying to belittle the thread in any way, I agree it is a worthy topic. My point is that it's not just them it's industry wide. The FDA is very corrupt and at the heart of the problem.

One more natural sweetener worth looking into is called Xylitol.. it's made from Birch trees and is actually GOOD for you in several ways! It does not affect your blood sugar like cane sugar and agave nectar, thus safe for diabetics, and it protects your teeth from decay if used enough. I bought 2 lbs for $16 but I bet it can be found cheaper.

Wikipedia: Xylitol

However you can't bake with it because yeast won't process it like it does sugar.

Wow, you know they're not native English speakers when they come up with a name like that. Why not 'Hello Kitty Sweet.' Oh wait I better write more than that or the mods will enforce something. Um oh yeah that's really bad for you, artificial sugar, yeah, wow. Hey anyone notice a mass exodus from ATS right around the time the mods started cracking down a couple of weeks ago... Probably related to that fake sugar TPTB are trying to push on us.

Dude if a single cell microbe is smart enough not to eat it, why would we?

I'm thinking ATS needs a special Section for these kinds of alerts. This kind of stuff is only going to get worse in the future. Someday they'll just come out with something like this as a completely new product and no one will know. Until then we need these kinds of Alerts and they should be easy enough to reference without getting lost. The general rule is don't use any man made food or enhancement as much as possible. Never assume they've done something good for people. They've already gone a long way to hide these poisons under the label "Sugar free". Likely in the future they'll get worse and simple add this stuff to the Sugar product as well.

I can't help but read threads like this and feel slightly smug that i cook all my own meals lol. I know exactly what has gone into my stuff and if people started cooking mroe then we would see obesity nearly destroyed, people would live lnoger, heart disease and stroke would massively decrease along with many other causees of death and best of all we could put companies like this out of business.

Artifical sweetner can be considered or defined as anything but what comes stright from the ground or from natural plant matter etc.. ie honey, cain suger, and other such things.. unprocessed, un-modified etc.

Do you all forget that since the mid '70's that High Fructose Corn Syrup is also in a majority of products as well.

In fact, and i haven't drawn this up, but from reading other papers and such, as HFCS was introduced more and more, the rate of Obesity, and diabetes also climbed.

Has anyone seen the commerical on tv about this stuff?

"HFCS is as safe as sugar" etc. type quotes.

Here is the main Website for the product I am referring too. This stuff is as bad if not worse then the artifical sweetners.

Now since I linked the propaganda website for you all, here are the flip-side websites on this product.

Weston A. Price Foundation

This one actually cites that HFCS contains MERCURY!
The Washington Post

The Mayo clinic says it's not sure, but considers it a processed food, and should be heavily limited.
www.mayoclinic.com...

So to go along with the artifical sweetners, here's one that is in everything else, from SunnyDelight to Hi-C, Mountain Dew, and all coke and pepsi products.

THis stuff also finds it's way into some soups, alot of liquids, some canned fruit, alot of adult beverage mixes (Yes, even that bloody mary and martini mix).

Please keep denying ignorance, for all our sakes!

I hate the taste of aspartame anyway.. Stevia if needed, sugar if I dont care.

But with all these poisons, virii, nwo plots, vaccines out to kill us all I am perplexed that the average life expectancy of people is increasing.

They're not that good at it are they, these secret people...



I started a thread sometime back about how incredibly stupid this NWO must be considering everything they supposedly do tends to work in the opposite way.

I got no responses from it...there was no real answer about how these evil geniuses that are responsible for everything tend to also be morons that screw up all their plots and secret plans talked about here (anyday now, all those swine flu vaccine suckers are going to drop dead...aaaany day now..just wait...hmm...got a snickers?)


Haha I was thinking of a thread about the swine flu vaccines trauma of a few months ago, and how it's nary a peep now, but decided against it. Sounds far too much effort, just to state an observation.

It's been on my mind for a while however, along with all the other bad things that are in the moment at the time, only to fade away.

Before you read this check the ingredients on the gum you are chewing. If people don't care about smoking and drinking why will the care about toxic gum?
Hear a study I just found.

We will limit our discussion in this FAQ to reported toxicity reactions to aspartame ingestion. Controlled studies showing problems with aspartame ingestion will be discussed in another FAQ. Toxicity reactions to aspartame can be divided into three types:

1.

Acute toxicity reactions occurring within 48 hours of ingestion of an aspartame-containing product.
2.

Chronic toxicity effects occurring anywhere from several days of use to appearing a number of years (i.e., 1-20+ years) after the beginning of aspartame use.
3.

Potential toxicity effects that would be nearly impossible for the user to recognize the link to aspartame.

In an epidemiological survey which appeared in the Journal of Applied Nutrition (Roberts 1988), 551 persons who have reported toxicity effects from aspartame ingestion were surveyed. The adverse effects found, cover a subset of reported acute and chronic toxicity effects from aspartame. What follows is a listing of the adverse health effects which were found. Back to Top

Severe joint pains 58 11%
"Bloating" 57 10%
Fluid retention and leg swelling 20 4%
Increased susceptibility to infection Back to Top 7 1%
There are other clinical reports in the scientific literature of aspartame-caused toxicity reactions including Blumenthal (1997), Drake (1986), Johns (1986), Lipton (1989), McCauliffe (1991), Novick (1985), Watts (1991), Walton (1986, 1988), and Wurtman (1985).

Pilots Report Serious Effects

Many pilots appear to be particularly susceptible to the effects of aspartame ingestion. They have reported numerous serious toxicity effects including grand mal seizures in the cockpit (Stoddard 1995). Nearly 1,000 cases of pilot reactions have been reported to the Aspartame Consumer Safety Network Pilot Hotline (Stoddard 1995).

This susceptibility may be related to ingesting methanol at altitude as suggested in a letter from Dr. Phil Moskal, Professor of Microbiology, Biochemistry, and Pathology, Chairman of the Department of Pathology, Director of Public Health Laboratories (Moskal 1990), or it may simply be that some pilots tend to ingest large quantities of aspartame during a flight.

Thanks for the heads up on this!

I never thought aspartame was safe, and you can taste the poionous flavor when it goes bad in old soft drinks. But if it's very fresh it might not be as bad.

I never thought everything that's natural must be ok, for example, if you go eating wild mushrooms and you don't know what you're doing, you're just as likely to eat some poisonous mushrooms as some that are safe for you, right?

But I guess the difference is we don't expect packaged food products to contain poisonous or potentially poisonous products.

Aspartame in dry form may not be too harmful if consumed in moderation. But excessive consumption, or sweetened frinks which have been on the shelf a while could render aspartame dangerous. and the FDA knows it, so be careful.

they did a test on finnish tv not to long ago where they poured a bottle of "lite" lemonade (consentrated) on to an ants hill , at the end of the day they where all dead.

indian farmers use aspartame interlazed soda as pesticide.

Sometimes a name says it all. Ajinomoto is Japanese for MSG. With a name like that, I wouldn't expect them to care what chemicals people consume.

Thanks for sharing this, MA. Starred & Flagged.

Is there anything known about products already using this substance under its new name 'amino sweetener' in their products?

Thanks for posting this. I will definitely be warning my family about this. I haven't been able to ingest artificial sweeteners for about four years now. I get extremely ill within minutes.

At my high school they changed out all the sodas in the soda machines for their diet equivalents. I realize soda's not healthy but I do enjoy one once in a while. However, because of all the obesity problems out there, I could no longer buy a soda at school.

I felt like it was rather unfair they were pushing this on us just because some people can't work well with the concept of moderation.

Oh well, I had more quarters after that.

we should send our representative, both state and local, some of the facts on aspertame , along with this little bit of info.

since there seems to be a growing urge to tax the crap out of the sugary drinks, which more than likely drive the people to drink the more poisonous stuff.

personally, I like the pepsi throwbacks.....I think it's safer than the fructose.

really, changing the name isn't gonna change the taste of the stuff, one drink, and well....people will know what it is! they won't be fooling anyone!

Oh shock!!!

People smoke pesticide everyday. They would die for their right to. They think tobacco addiction is a right.

Perhaps the right to choose is, perhaps knowing this stuff is crap, is enough.

You know pouting boiling water on an ants nest often kill the nest too..

OMG Boiling water !! I'll email everyone in my list right now!!!11
