Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World by Sound and Fury Production and Cori Brackett.
I am a Snopes.com fan, and they say that everything in my post is false, so I am confused somewhat.
However: I had recently discovered the nasty truth about aspertame here on our site. I hear so many of you with the ailements that can be caused by consumption of this sweetner. Why do these things seem so high in people like us? Could it be that in our efforts to keep our sugars low, we are poisoning ourselves one sip at a time? I know to many of you this is old news. To me it was an urban legend that got passed around on the net.(according to Snopes.com it is just a lie) Now I am not so sure.
This documentary is filled with interviews and frist hand accounts of the toxic way this sweetner got into the market and into our bodies. I have been using it for years, thinking it was safer than sacrin. My mom and I watched the DVD together and decided that we are just going to have to learn to consume things unsweetened. We pulled out everything in our pantry that has it as an ingredient and threw it away. If it says "Sugar
Free", "Light", "Low Calorie" or similar, read the lable.
I am not so trusting of Splenda right now either, but have not gotten the book I ordered about it yet.
If you get an opportunity to watch it, do so. I bought my copy on Amazon.com.
JP has shared great stories concerning this. If any of you have stories, please share.
