#3) Artificial Sweeteners: Sorbitol, Aspartame and Sucralose - They trick the body into ingesting them because they taste sweet - The 3 Trojan horses of the cancer-food industry
by S.D. Wells
What's your problem: Weight gain, headaches or irritable bowels? Did you say "all of the above"? I wonder why! You could have metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of biochemical and physiological abnormalities (and conditions) that occur together, such as increased blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, high blood sugar level and excess body fat around the waist.

This greatly increases the risk of stroke, heart disease and, of course, diabetes.

Specific artificial sweeteners were found to alter the gut's microbial community in HUMANS and mice, and this "multi-pronged" study tells us that this "zero calorie" fake sugar consumption sets in motion metabolic changes associated with diabetes and obesity.

How ironic that the very platform upon which artificial sweeteners are sold is the nemesis of their consumers. Want to gain weight? Eat synthetic sweeteners that have ZERO calories. Want to end those recurring headaches and irritable bowels? Google this: "Artificial Sweetener Disease."

What's clear is that artificial sweeteners DO NOT pass through the intestines without effect. They're also killing off good bacteria.

If you want a healthy alternative, try Stevia or organic xylitol, and be on your way back to good health.
