Do youuuuuu...

Remember that commercial for Dunkin Donuts from many years ago? Well, of course I never saw them live - only on You tube ;) but they still make me laugh...

So do youuuu have symptoms like
legs that feel like lead weights
mood swings
monthly cramps and bloating
painful bowel movements
joint pains
brain fog
unexplained tiredness?

Are youuuuu troubled by
heart palpitations
memory loss
blurry vision
loss of taste 
or insomnia?

Do youuuuu know people who have been diagnosed with
Brain tumors
Multiple sclerosis
Chronic fatigue
Lymphoma or

If your answer is "yes" to more than a few of those symptoms, above and you consume Splenda (Sucralose) and Nutrasweet (Aspartame) I strongly encourage you to learn more them, as they have been implicated.
In 2006 Sucralose wass found in nearly 4,000 foods, drinks, even health-care products such as toothpastes. As I mentioned the other day, Nutrasweet is found in most regular grocery store gums, not just the sugar free kinds... It will make you crave more of the food that it is contained in! Russell Blalock wrote about this in 1997. Very interesting read - about so much more than just Nutrasweet.

I have had many patients in my office over the years who were using one or both of these sweeteners over the years, and my first recommendation is always that they stop using them immediately. The ones who do invariably feel better within a couple of weeks or so, sometimes with some nutritional help, but mostly without.

What do you know about Splenda and Nutrisweet? Are your kids eating them? Do you know that there have there been long term studies about their effects?
Please!!!  Learn more about them before you consume any more, and then make an informed decision. Oh, and don't forget those labels, including your fiber cereal, 'cause the blue stuff is hiding in some of them too.
