The Future Of Artificial Sweeteners - It's Up To You

I am often asked, "What is the future of the chemical sweeteners? Will aspartame and sucralose ever be taken off the market?"

My answer? "It will end - it has to end. Human beings can't keep going like this - we are killing ourselves. We are killing the next generation with toxic chemicals and polluted foods. Let's hope the truth about the dangers of chemical sweeteners comes forth very soon."

For most people, just being aware that there are other safer sweetener choices can help them stay healthier. Advertisers make us forget this, but the choice to buy and consume these toxic chemical foods versus healthier foods is yours. The corporations will keep making and selling these nasty, toxic foods as long as you, the consumer chooses to buy them.

Bottom-line, diet sweeteners are bad for your health - just admit it and move onto something healthier. This reality is very difficult to comprehend when you are living in the swamp up to your neck in alligators! Remember that to drain the swamp was the original intention behind true health and wellness.

How can you learn more about the dangers of these sweetener products and why you believe they are healthy for you? How do you transform your fears of getting fat, the reality of aging, and the fear of inevitable mortality into something positive? How do you regain self-acceptance of who you are and why you are alive? We all are just individuals making an individual journey through life and, as such, these are our individual choices.

Bottom line: you choose your destiny; it is all up to you. We trust marketers to sell us a product that will not harm our health. In this case, and as we see more and more these days, diet sweeteners are not a healthy product, and we are not being "marketed" the whole truth. It is hard to make the right choices when the "other side" of the sweetener issue isn't freely publicly expressed. But it's up to you to seek the truth, especially if you are getting sick from sugar-free foods.

Treating the body is really about treating the mind. It is your personal choice whether to use these toxic food chemicals or not. The true power in wellness resides in you. It's about having a high regard for who you are, and the foresight to guide your children toward health and wellness. You have a right to be protected from false advertising and toxins in your foods. Companies pushing toxic products, like diet sweeteners, are threatening your freedom for heath and wellness. The manufacturers are not letting the consumer know about the "dark side" of chemical sweeteners - this threatens your well-being.

A major part of this sweetener issue is that profit is being promoted over health and wellness. It's like fanning a fire - the other side of wellness (profit over health) can expand and increase its own energy over goodness and truth. There will always be people who benefit from discord and dis-easement, from fanning the fire of profit. But remember, what is based on deception never lasts. It is self-destructive. Truth and integrity are much more powerful than greed and profit.

Focus on your choices; choose strength over fear; choose health over the products that promise beauty and thinness at a sacrifice of wellness. Choose to reach your full potential, in whatever way that might be. This kind of power is not aggressive. The true power of health and wellness lies peacefully within the real you.

The following was sent to me, author unknown, which illustrates this point:


A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. The conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain-looking, some expensive, and some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

After all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken first, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

"Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases, it's just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups, and then began eyeing each other's cups."

"Now consider this," he continued, "Life is the coffee, and the jobs, houses, cars, things, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life, and the type of cup we have does not define nor change the quality of life we live. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee provided us."

Enjoy your coffee. Be confident in yourself, and stand up to the marketing deception that artificial sweeteners are safe and healthy.
