The trouble with sweeteners, of particular concern for Diabetics


[/url]

By H.G. Roberts, M.D.

Roberts talks about the role of the pancreas, the chemical aspartame, and how sweeteners containing aspartame affect the pancreas, in support of the Senate Concurrent Resolution 191, by Senator Suzanne Chun Oakland, asking FDA Commissioner to Rescind Approval for Aspartame, and this Resolution remains stalled in the Senate Health Committee, with hearing yet to be scheduled

That is very disturbing. My bf is diabetic and he drinks "diet" drinks all the time. I have long had reservations about that and try to get him to stop all of the time. Maybe this article will help.

Crud. More water then.

I drink diet drinks. I like to put artificial sweetener in my ice tea, too.

Review raises questions over aspartame and brain health

[/url]

When the truth of this eventually dawns far into the future on officials like the Director of the Hawaii Department of Health, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, who relied totally on the discredited Toxicology magazine "study" which was totally paid for by Ajinomoto of Japan, all of the legislators who capitulated to her counsel and that of the grocers, soft drink bottlers, etc., will appear to have been tragically misinformed and entirely misled by corporate perfidy.

What about the new kid on the block, Splenda? My neighbor uses a lot of that.

Wow! Those are eye openers!

Saccharin is less toxic than anything we now have on the market? Who would have thunk it?

And they didn't even bring up food coloring...
