The ‘Other’ Sweetener That’s Made from Sugar, but is Closer to DDT

Splenda Artificial SweetenerResearchers recently investigated sucralose (Splenda) to see if it could reduce hunger and keep blood sugar steady.  They found that it could not.

The researchers hoped to find that sucralose could cause the intestine to produce a hormone that reduces blood sugar and decreases appetite, which prior study had indicated might be a possibility. But the effect did not occur when it was ingested orally — hunger remained the same and the blood sugar remained the same.

According to FYI Living:

“Worse, other research has shown that artificial sweeteners might contribute to weight gain … [when the] sweet taste is not accompanied by the calories (energy) our brain expects it to be, the complex systems our bodies have to regulate energy balance may be thrown off kilter.  The result is that a diet high in artificial sweeteners may possibly, over time, cause people to seek out more calories from other sources”.

FDA Warns – Do NOT Use This Pain Reliever… You Could Turn Blue and Die

BenzocaineThe FDA has notified healthcare professionals and patients that they are receiving reports of methemoglobinemia, a serious and potentially fatal side effect, associated with benzocaine products.

The condition can occur when benzocaine is used either as a spray used during medical procedures to numb the mouth and throat, or as over-the-counter gels and liquids used to relieve pain from conditions such as teething and canker sores.

Methemoglobinemia is a condition in which the amount of oxygen carried through the blood stream is greatly reduced. In severe cases, methemoglobinemia can result in death.

According to Drugs.com:

“Methemoglobinemia has been reported with all strengths of benzocaine gels and liquids, and cases occurred mainly in children aged two years or younger who were treated with benzocaine gel for teething.”

Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World reveals one of the most pervasive, insidious forms of corporate negligence since tobacco. The toxic long-term effects of aspartame are often dismissed as a hoax by the sweetener industry; however this new documentary thoroughly unravels something infinitely more alarming than merely a hoax. ____________________ Please support the film, buy it at www.mercola.com About 200 times sweeter than the refined sugar it is meant to replace, Aspartame is the artificial sweetener used in such brands as Equal and Nutrasweet.

How Supermodel Gisele Bundchen “Infuriated Cancer Experts”…

Woman appplying sunscreenResearchers at the Environmental Working Group, a Washington-based nonprofit, released their annual report claiming nearly half of the 500 most popular sunscreen products may actually increase the speed at which malignant cells develop and spread skin cancer because they contain vitamin A and its derivatives, retinol and retinyl palmitate.

Furthermore, the FDA has known about the dangers of vitamin A in sunscreens since ordering a study 10 years ago, but has done nothing to alert the public of the dangers.

“Retinyl palmitate was selected by (FDA’s) Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition for photo-toxicity and photocarcinogenicity testing based on the increasingly widespread use of this compound in cosmetic retail products for use on sun-exposed skin,” said an October 2000 report by the National Toxicology Program.

According to AOL news, other problems with sunscreens include:

  • The use of the hormone-disrupting chemical oxybenzone, which penetrates the skin and enters the bloodstream.
  • Overstated claims about performance.
  • The lack of needed regulations and oversight by the Food and Drug Administration.

Also, be careful where you discuss the danger involved with sunscreens.  Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen has reportedly “infuriated cancer experts” by describing sunscreen as “poison”.

Bundchen refuses to use it on herself or her family because of the chemicals they contain. According to the Daily Mail:

“[Bundchen] made the comments at the launch of her own organic skin care range, which presumably doesn’t include sun care lotions.”

Bundchen, incidentally, is currently the highest paid supermodel in the world. She also has said that it should be against the law for healthy mothers to give their baby infant formula full of sugar, and often soy.

The Shocking Collapse of the Middle Class

Law scholar Elizabeth Warren is an outspoken critic of America’s credit economy, which she has linked to the continuing rise in bankruptcy among the middle-class.

As Warren discusses a possible collapse of the middle-class, this AlterNet article, written by former economist David Korten for YES! Magazine, discusses the rise of Wall Street, which has its roots in the institutions of Empire that began some 5,000 years ago.

Replacing Wall Street with a New Economy, based on locally owned businesses devoted to serving their communities, may be one of the only solutions to stop impending social and environmental collapse.
