Saccharin Was Labeled A Carcinogen In A Bogus 1960s Scam

A picture of the book Sweet Poison by Janet Starr Hull, PhD, CN

In the 1960s, the sweetener industry changed, but not for the better. The only artificial sweetener at that time, saccharin, was sacrificed to make room for a new, more profitable sweetener, NutraSweet/Equal® made from aspartame. Saccharin in Coca Cola® In 1902, Monsanto Chemical Company launched its reputation by manufacturing saccharin, the company’s very first product. From 1903 through 1905, […]

Have You Ever Heard Of An Accidental Incidence?

Have you ever been to a holiday party at your office, school, or at your neighbor’s house where everyone brings a potluck dish or a special holiday dessert?

Why Vaccines Were Safe – Back In The Day

CIRCA 1950s: An antique photo shows four women in white coats, USSR, circa 1950s

Through social media, I have observed that most people do not like posts about vaccines. This puzzles me because health and wellness is connected to vaccines. Soooo, do me a favor and keep reading.

I love granting radio interviews. I was raised a film brat, so hand me a mic, and I’m ready to go. I’ve been granting radio and television interviews about aspartame and the diet sweeteners since 1997.  As one of the world’s foremost artificial sweetener experts, I have fun exposing information about aspartame, Splenda, saccharin, and stevia – information […]

Q&A – How To Say No To Toxic Sweeteners And Garbage Food

The Q&A letters

Q:  As a parent, how do you teach your kids to say no to the chemical sweeteners and garbage foods? In the context of kids, sugar, and schools, it’s nearly impossible to keep kids on any sort of dietary restriction in today’s schools (short of one that will kill them outright, such as a peanut allergy).

The Sucralose Pepsi® Switch – Is This Really A Better Choice?

A hand flipping a coin.

Sometimes I wonder why we still talk about the diet sweeteners. I am amazed that people still use them. You’d think that the word would be out by now, and that the health dangers would be clear. I guess some people don’t want to admit that there is no free ticket to eating all the sugar-free […]

Don’t Be Sold A Can Of Diet Propaganda

A Top Secret box tied with chains

I have to admit that I fussed with edit after edit before posting my reply to this insane article on upworthy.com because my emotions were running high, and I was all over the map. How much more disappointment can we take reading the continuous propaganda about the supposed safety of aspartame? Not to mention deep sadness at the lack of integrity in the […]
