Artificial Sweetener Disease; a new breed of sickness

(NaturalNews) Artificial Sweetener Disease (ASD) is sweeping across America, affecting tens of thousands of consumers, and Western medicine calls it anything but what it really is, so that doctors can prescribe expensive pharmaceuticals and set up "check up" appointments for the following weeks.

Call it recurring headaches, unbearable migraines, depression, anxiety, muscle pain, arthritis flare ups, buzzing or ringing in the ears, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease, inflammation, even acid reflux, but don't call it ASD, or the patient may stop consuming synthetic sweeteners, and then not schedule more doctor visits.

The symptoms of ASD can change overnight, depending on how much chemical sweetener you consume, and which ones. Some combinations are especially toxic. Consumers can go from a migraine headache to vomiting or from vision problems to an upset stomach. Many people experience central nervous system disorders, cramping, nervous twitches and abnormal reflexes. (http://www.holisticmed.com/aspartame/)

It all started when Ronald Reagan took office in 1980. He immediately fired the head of the FDA, under advisement from Donald Rumsfeld (CEO of Searle Pharmaceutical at the time), and hired Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr., who auspiciously approved aspartame. It was the decade of the diet craze, and Rumsfeld and his constituents made a fortune off the artificial sweetener which had been banned for decades due to laboratory testing results proving it was carcinogenic. The same FDA tainted approval process gave way to sucralose in 1991, and then sorbitol in 2003. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robbi...)

Gulf War Syndrome mainly ASD

It is not a coincidence that a wave of fibromyalgia cases hit the American troops during the Gulf War. Studies revealed that drinking diet sodas in the 120 degree heat lead to serious health repercussions. It was cleverly chalked up under the umbrella term "Gulf War Syndrome," but the same problems are occurring for troops in Iraq and Afghanistan now. (http://www.militaryspot.com/resourc...)

It is also no coincidence that 4 out of 5 fibromyalgia cases affect women, who are more likely to eat diet foods and consume diet drinks than men. Nearly all chewing gum and breath mints are loaded with artificial sweeteners. (http://healthwyze.org/index.php/com...)

The popular saying that "there's not enough artificial sweetener in any specific product to cause health concerns" is a lie, especially now that in 2011 there are synthetic sweeteners in over 25% of all food, drink, gum and candy available. This cumulative effect has created ASD, and thanks to little or no regulation of chemical agents in food, it's not going away any time soon.

There is no prescription drug, and there never will be one, that cures the problems that artificial sweeteners create. In fact, over 70 percent of reported cases of fibromyalgia, chronic depression, IBS and acid reflux are caused by consuming chemical agents which have been approved by the FDA for consumption. (http://www.foodintol.com/food_intol...)

Cancer may be the distant, long term result of consuming chemicals, but ASD is the short term consequence, and it is very serious. If you look to prescription drugs to cure these "chronic ailments," then you will experience even more side effects from the prescription medicines, and maybe worse ones than you already have.

The good news is the cure for Artificial Sweetener Disease is absolutely free and involves no doctor, no health insurance co-pays, and has zero side effects. Here is the secret cure for ASD: throw away your sugar free gum and candy, and then trash all foods and drinks you have that are labeled "light" and "zero." Read the labels on everything, so you can filter out all artificial sweeteners from your products, including aspartame, sucralose, sorbitol, acesulfame-k, aspartic acid, and saccharine.

As an alternative to poisoning yourself, try Xylitol or Stevia in order to cut calories, or simply eat more organic vegetables! If problems persist, take a list of everything you ate this week to your Naturopath or Nutritionist to analyze. Remember, if you're getting sick from moldy bread, don't look for a prescription drug to cure you, just stop eating moldy bread.

How Did the Earth Get Here?

How Did the Earth Get Here?

Of all of the questions that face man, the question of how the earth was formed is one of the most challenging, and the different theories that man has formed over the years on the creation of the planet have often generated a great deal of controversy.
While today’s scientists believe that they have finally found the answer to this most basic question, it is important to remember that previous generations, societies and cultures assumed that their answers to this question were correct in their day too. Here is some basic information on the most popular theory of how the earth was formed.
The development of our planet began some 4.6 billion years ago, and the Earth has gone through staggering geological changes since that time. The Earth has been existence in some form for roughly a third of the history of the universe itself. The formation of our home planet began with the dawn of the Hadean era, in which various solar debris accumulated into an increasingly dense globe.
Very little of this matter exists in its former form today, but scientists have concluded that the primary ingredients were basic rocks and crystals. At some point during this era, the young earth formed its first mantle shortly before it collided with another large protoplanet, and much of the matter on our planet was formed by this event. In the chaos that followed, the Earth was a violent setting that was constantly bombarded by meteorites and rocked by terrific and constant volcanoes.
As the planet cooled off and things began to settle down, the Earth entered the Archaean era. It was during this period that our atmosphere was created, but the total absence of an ozone layer and the scarcity of oxygen meant that this would have been a difficult place to survive. However, the very first fossils began to appear during this time, and with it the story of life on Earth began. By this time, the Earth was large enough to attract the building blocks of life into its gravitational field, and the accumulation of water began to create our great oceans and seas.
In these waters, life slowly evolved, and it is likely that the early days of evolution included a world of lifeforms that is even more diverse than the world of today. Some of these lifeforms found a way to build and store energy through the use of the sunlight and the abundant carbon dioxide, and the oxygen that was created by this basic form of photosynthesis allowed for evolution to continue down its curious path.
