Taxing sugared drinks is crazy!! The makers of artificial additives must be paying for this idea! I have a hard time believing San Franciscoites do not know the damage done by artificial sweeteners, they are taxing these drinks according to the recent news. When you tax sugared drinks you support artificially sweetened drinks and you guarantee we will have more obesity but very happy chemical companies. Would you be trilled to see the government tax your competitors!!
Food additives, especially artificial sweeteners are the cause of common health problems. When the temperature of aspartame exceeds 86 degrees the wood alcohol in aspartame coverts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. People with aspartame poisoning are being misdiagnosed with MS and systemic lupus. If you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps. vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss, Parkinson’s like problems – you may be affected by artificial sweeteners. They are starting to add aspartame to sugar to make it sweeter. It makes you crave carbohydrates and will make you fat!! A Dr. Roberts stated in the congressional record during hearings that when he got patients off aspartame, their average weight loss was 19 pounds per person. It stores in fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs!!
Your body cannot utilize chemicals, your body considers chemicals to be poison and stores residues in fat tissue to get them out of the blood stream. Chemicals are not considered food by your body. There is a new sweetener with stevia and sugar and you can use maple syrup, organic rice syrup, organic sugar- it has all the minerals intack- and I am sure some others you can come up with. Steez is a good natural fizzy drink instead of the commercial soft drinks.
Government is taxing the wrong thing again, will we ever learn? There are many in the health care field that believe Gulf War Syndrome is toxicity to chemicals in prepared drinks. If you have health problems just go one month without these artificial foods and food additives and then access how you feel. You will be amazed. In the meantime check us out at drmaulfair.com.
