Re: Aspartame effects to me?
Myra, know that your experience was a real reaction to the toxins in aspartame, and they may have accumulated with other toxins added to your food, drink, and medications. We are definitely polluted from every which-a-way these days, and when toxins fill our water, air, landfills, food, medications, and inoculations, well - what's left???
We can minimize the number of chemicals humans are exposed to by removing them from food manufacturing and lessening our dependencies on permanent medications, but we have gone so far down the wrong road, I fear we can't turn back easily. We will have to make some serious changes one day, no doubt. But for now, changes can be made one person at a time. You have now adopted those changes and are more aware of the dangers you had not been previously informed about.
In our nation of tabloids, talk shows, and real-tv - this topic and the harm it causes people, not to mention the money, isn't splashed all over the networks and front pages? What's wrong with this picture?
And most doctors glaze over when you mention the toxins in diet sweeteners. This is scary! Time to spread the word, as you are doing. Keep up the good work, and never hesitate to share your experience to help another.
