About 5 years ago, I became extremely sick, prompting me to go see a doctor. The symptoms were fatigue, pain in my left side, extreme thrust, shortness of breath, unable to sleep due to pain in left side, muscle weakness, dizziness, lack of appetite, weight loss, and anxiety.
After performing tests, the doctor told me I had pneumonia with fluid build up in my left lung. She also said I had triglycerides…. This was very distressing news, since I had always been in very good health, and very rarely ever needed a doctor due to illness. Now, my being concerned as to what caused all this mess, I immediately cut out all foods with artificial content, such as artificial sweeteners, chemical additives such as MSG, sodas, and especially oils.
And, oh yes….

I tried walking a few miles a day. Just about a month later, all my vital signs reverted back to normal, which mystified my doctor, and most of the staff in the clinic. My doctor also took me off of insulin, and put me on pills, which worked very well up to now. It has worked wonders, for the past 4 months regulating my blood to normal without the prescriptions, and I am feeling great.
I agree with the previous comment. To put Stevia in the same category than the articifial sweetener is completely misleading.
Healthy food: Should we be eating more fat? - Telegraph
While I agree that an apple may be the best choice, we still need sugar here is there. So why not talk about the different types of sugar that are now available to us in differnt forms, which is convenient for baking or add to smoothies: maple or agave syrup, coconut crystals, date sugar, stevia etc … and that all have a lower glycemic index than cane sugar. You also need to make the distinction between raw brown cane sugsr and white refined sugar etc …. There is much more to say than this article says.
Way too simplified and incomplete. I agree, this article needs re-defining. Stevia is a natural sweetening made from a plant and not synthetic. We use it in baking, coffee, and things such as this. We also have our own honey bee hives and process it without heat so it is very healthy and use it often for sweetening even in baking where ever it calls for sugar.
It is very healthy for a person. In the early 80s I started having strange symptoms. Patchy numbness, ringing in ears, etc. I also was drinking Diet Coke.

In while at a staff meeting, my face went numb on the left side. It was like a netting coming across my face. Fortunantly I was in a hosptial and was immediatly taken to the emergency room. I did. The medication I had to take is no longer needed, the burning sensation and the patch of numbness disappeared from all the other places. Funny, I have not gained weight, so drinking Diet Coke was useless. I stick with the Stevia drinks — I hope someday Coke will have to quit making that poisen. That is my story. Stay away from Aspertame. I have studied aspartame NutraSweet, Equal for more than 25 years because it caused a drastic personality change and intellectual deterioration in my daughter.
She also developed epileptic-type seizures and began to lose the vision in both eyes. She consulted a neurologist, and he told her that she had temporal lobe epilepsy. I heard about Dr. Roberts in Florida, so I contacted him and he confirmed what I suspected — that she was suffering from a reaction to the artificial sweetener in diet soda.
Expect Great Results
He has written many medical texts about aspartame. To follow up, we took our daughter to Boston for special studies on her brain, and the doctors confirmed that it was the NutraSweet that had made her so sick. They said that she had been totally misdiagnosed by the neurologist and that she did not have temporal lobe epilepsy at all.
We also took her to a highly-respected ophthalmologist who explained why her vision loss was due to aspartame. She finally stopped drinking sodas containing aspartame, and she had a complete recovery and has had a fine job since then as a computer programmer and financial analyst and actuary. My daughter drank only one can of diet soda a day. I react with a classic migraine after a few sips of diet soda. Aspartame causes many serious documented problems in so many people.
Surely it is a case of moderation, in the case of weight loss even too much in the way of natural sugars and not enough exercise has been reported to add weight. I stopped drinking any diet soda since Jan 1st and have kept it going strong.
I now just drink water with occasional unsweetened tea for meals. I use Splenda to sweeten it up. I would suggest to stay away from any soda whether diet or sweetened. You will see the loss of weight and a better and healthier body if you do!! As Harvard professor Mozaffarian has many times pointed out animal and cohort studies are only suggestive. Artificial sweeteners are not natural which means there are chemicals involved that might affect our body. There is even a study that these sweeteners can make you fat and affects your diet in a negative way.
Sadly you could be right. Sometimes it is easier to colour sugar than than use a product not completely purified which may vary too much. Not sure if this practice is current and molasses or the raw sugar is not always easy to get hold of. Some years ago I read a report saying that the sweet taste in your mouth of an artificially sweetened food or drink stimulates the production of insulin in the body.
But because there is no sugar to be metabolized, the body is left with excess insulin. Have there been further studies? Does anyone know? Hi A very good thought. The body recognises in the west only four tastes and there are probably more regulatory controls in us than we realise. We know if we need food. We know if we need a drink. We keep our body temperature within very close limits etc.
Those that cannot then adapt to the new situation no sugar to get rid of are likely to suffer. And a few years ago this meant possibly a new wonder drug for diabetes that turned my friends diabetes to a death sentence from bowel cancer in two years. The new wonder drug has been removed because it is thought but not likely to produce bowel cancer.
We seem as positive over drugs that give us cancer as we are about sugar substitutes that may give us epilepsy etc etc. Mercury that well known brain destroyer is almost certainly not the cause of disordered brains in babies injected with thimerosal a well known compound of mercury. So that leaves it open to discuss anything else MORE likely. I don't know whether the recent perpetrators of these outrages were on drugs but back in the last century, I found that many, if not all, of them appeared to be taking the SSRI drug, Prozac. Below is an extract from my book, Fluoride: Drinking ourselves to death?
I wrote this in ; it is still relevant today. Searching PubMed today, I could find no medical research that addresses the problem. Perhaps it is about time there was some! Fluoride drugs and violent deaths. Many antidepressive drugs contain fluoride because of its profound effect on mood. Fluanxol, Motipress, Motival, Parstelin and the biggest seller, Prozac, are all highly fluorinated. Hypothyroidism, which they produce, can induce almost any psychiatric symptom or syndrome, including rage, fear ranging from mild anxiety to frank paranoia, mood swings and aggression.
Recently the USA has seen an alarming rise in apparently motiveless killings where individuals - usually men, but also children - have taken a gun and shot several people before shooting themselves. The number of people, including preschool children, prescribed antidepressants and stimulants rose in the mids despite limited knowledge about the effects of such drugs on young children. Yet, 'Unresolved questions involve the long-term safety of psychotropic medications, particularly in light of earlier ages of initiation and longer durations of treatment'.
In an early case, a young defendant was found not guilty because he committed a murder 'in the course of a hypothyroid psychosis'. The University of Maryland looked at , patients in three areas of the country. It found that use of stimulants and antidepressants rose in all the areas between and Julie Zito, principal author of the study, said that some of the drugs' uses are not included in warnings on drug packages. While this is not uncommon with some drugs for adults, there is no information on how these psychotropic drugs work for children.
In a recent rampage that has become frighteningly familiar in the USA, a fifteen-year-old Springfield, Oregon, student, Kip Kinkel, dressed in a trench coat, ran through a crowded school cafeteria firing his rifle from the hip. He killed a classmate and critically wounding several others. The Associated Press headline read:. This was frighteningly similar to a violent episode which took place in Louisville, Kentucky in Joseph Wesbecker stepped out of an elevator at work firing an AK47 semiautomatic assault rifle.
Twelve people were wounded and eight killed before Joseph Wesbecker took his own life. One victim described him as 'totally devoid of human element and human soul. Kip Kinkel was restrained before he could take his life, but begged others to shoot him when they tackled him. Both men were taking Prozac at the time. Prozac's manufacturer, Eli Lilly has repeatedly claimed that Prozac is safe. The International Coalition For Drug Awareness ICFDA , a non profit group that warns of potential serious adverse reactions to prescription medications, reports that there is abundant evidence in medical literature showing a link between Prozac and violence, as well as suicide.
Tracy poses the question, 'How many patients have ever been warned that even something as simple as mixing most major cough syrups with their use of these medications can produce PCP Angel Dust like reactions? Wesbecker and Kinkel are only two of a growing number of violent cases committed by people taking Prozac or one of its clones:.
Now four more are dead and Kinkel is facing a life without his parents and several classmates. He also faces spending the rest of his life in prison while he slowly comes to a realization of what he did in this drug-induced stupor. Dr Leigh Thompson went 'against the advice of his staff' and told the board of directors that suicide and hostile acts committed by Prozac users were, in all probability, caused by the patients' underlying disorders rather than Prozac.
On 7 November he asked, 'What are our priorities? Of course priority number one for Eli Lilly was to protect Prozac. In December the world heard that Prozac had been found 'not guilty' in the murderous rampage and suicide of Joseph Wesbecker. But, in fact, Eli Lilly had paid millions of dollars to settle out of court. The judge was so upset about the secrecy and deception surrounding the case that he called for an additional hearing to force Lilly to admit this publicly. He succeeded, and Lilly and the plaintiffs were forced to admit that this was indeed a settlement and not a 'not guilty' verdict for Prozac.
