You already know just that the past 50 years, our society has been pounded with the evils of smoking, drinking, eating red meat, and that we should cut the maximum amount of salt and fat from our diets as possible. Under the trumpet of healthy living, we’re being programmed to replace our intake of butter with margarine, red meat with soy alternatives and sugar with artificial sweeteners. As it pertains to sugar and artificial sweeteners we’re literally being sold a bill of goods mainly because the sugar industry also controls both industries. It’s such as the fox guarding the hen house. We are being offered alternatives but only when it is advantageous to the industry promoting it.
It’s funny how the things that taste the very best always seem o be so harmful. Refined white sugar, Fructose and artificial sweeteners should really be at the the top of list. Sugar is definitely the greatest worldwide addiction that is openly protected by the FDA. White refined sugar is not even a food, it is a chemical that could be better classes an addictive drug. Yes, that’s right, an addictive drug and when you remove it from your daily diet you can experience withdrawal symptoms including headaches, nausea and irritability. Refined sugar is used in everything from bread, canned vegetables, juices and condiments. It’s in almost everything you eat and drink in short supply of water. You’d be hard pressed to locate any processed food that doesn’t add a heaping helping of refined sugar or fructose included with it.
The so called “Natural Sweeteners”
If you think about fructose a secure, natural sugar, think again. You’ve been had by among the biggest nutritional bait-and-switch ploys in years. Fructose does not originate from fruit, it IS refined sugar! High fructose consumption has been fingered as a causative aspect in heart disease. It raises blood levels of cholesterol and another kind of fat, triglyceride. It creates blood cells more prone to clotting, and it might also accelerate the aging process. So the very next time you see a commercial touting the virtues of Fructose because the actor sucks on her behalf Popsicle… know that they are lying to you.
Although you can find healthier natural alternatives, BIG SUGAR continues to protect their interests in very similar way the tobacco industry has for decades david hoffmeister free mp3. They own both the sugar and sugar replacement markets which meant that getting other, healthier alternatives are slim at best and getting these truths are nonexistent.
Artificial replacements are known to possess carcinogens. They cause CANCER and the businesses making them know it. They are being re branded constantly to help keep consumers confused and from understanding the actual hazards of ingesting such products. Imagine renaming something, changing the colour of the box and calling it healthy!

Natural Sweeteners that truly are healthy (honestly!)
Naturalists and foodies are simply now beginning to expound the virtues of natural sugar alternatives such as for instance stevia, mannitol, glycerol and the principal subject of this short article miraculin. Miraculin is a glycoprotein extracted from the miracle berry or miracle fruit plant, a shrub native to West Africa (Synsepalum dulcificum or Richadella dulcifica). As opposed to acting as a sweetening agent, miraculin changes just how our preferences interpret flavors. It creates sour limes and lemons taste like lemon aide. It creates healthy unsweetened chocolates taste like fine milk chocolate. And it does all of this without adding a single calorie or grain of sweetener.
The ad read– Have you been diabetic? Would you prefer to eat chocolate cake again? What about a chocolate cake with no sugar that tastes like the most decadent brownie you’ve ever tasted? Have you been overweight? Would you prefer to eat fruit that tastes like candy, except with no sugar that is killing you?
YES! Of course I would! Is this for real?
Keep in mind that I myself am a sweetaholic and I crave sugar. I drink my coffee sweetened and have grown to be dependent on flavored (artificial) creamers. I really do love fruit, however, getting good naturally ripened and sweet fruit is difficult these days. With having said that, for my test I got a melon that has been not very sweet, out of season and the flavor was, well… blah! Imagine biting into a piece of candle wax with a sprint of sugar on it.
After chewing on the miracle berry tablet and rolling it around in my mouth for one minute or two (as directed), I took a mouthful of my blah melon. OH MY GOODNESS! It had been like I’d never eaten a cantaloupe before. Is this what God intended fruit to taste like? I can’t wait to here is another miracle fruit berry now. I’ve read that they are doubly potent because the tablets and would be the purest way to actually exploit the power of miraculin.
