|Oh, no, little kitty!...It's been poisoned!|
FAKE sweetened milk?
Holy cow, I wish I were...
...Check it out HERE...and carry your tissues.
There is a link to 'aspartame' at the top of the article linked above. It tells us, basically, that all the commotion over aspartame is a bunch of hooey. You can go to the link if you want, of course, but they've gone a long way to lie to us.
And one thing I haven't seen mentioned is how addictive it is.
And I know...I am a recovering aspartamaholic.
I hate the idea of kids, in particular, taking this stuff into their bodies and causing their tiny organs the stress of trying to strain out the poison but not being able to because it is formulated, after all, to trick the body into breaking it down as it would something that might actually be good for them.
Natural News.com tells us there are documented reports to the FDA of the following side-effects of aspartame:
"...migraines, seizures, dizziness, nausea, numbness, muscle spasms, weight gain, depression, fatigue, irritability, insomnia, vision and hearing loss, heart palpitations, breathing difficulties, anxiety attacks, loss of taste, vertigo, and memory loss."
And following is the scientific principle (same source) behind the death of neural cells due to the ingestion of aspartame:
"Aspartame acts as neurotransmitters in the brain by facilitating the transmission of information between neurons. It kills certain neurons by allowing the influx of too much calcium into the cells. This triggers excessive amounts of free radicals to invade, killing the cells. The neural cell damage is referred to as "excitotoxins." They "excite" or stimulate the neural cells to death."
Learn more and I strongly suggest following the links in the article rather than the advertised link at the top of the page placed there by "Ad Choice". (I used to allow Ad Choice on my blog but stopped because of the same type of crud showing up on my posts.)
Note the following quote from my post, "Peaceable Eating":
The best good we can do is pass the word, thereby educating the masses, refuse to partake of the product if it does come available, contact those in positions to make a difference and educate them (respectfully) ...and having done all we can, we stand and we PRAY.
And then we leave it with God. Oh, yes. I did just say that. And if you're like me and you tend to pick it up again, take it back to Him again. If the opportunity arises to educate someone new, by all means, do so. But leave the worry with God.
After all, He did tell us to be still and know that HE is God. He did tell us that having done all, to stand. He did tell us that if we go to him when we're tired and heavily burdened, He would give us rest. He did say to trade our burden for His because his is lighter.
Do you get the feeling that God likes to help us rest?
I'm good, SO good, with that.
So good, in fact, that the hissy fit you read at the top of the page is as bad as it's going to get. -Doesn't mean I intend to be passive. Just means I intend, purposefully intend, to leave the angst behind, no matter how tempted I am to do otherwise. And believe me, I am tempted.
Ready. Set. Go.
