The modern selection criteria for genetic fitness under our decades long eugenics regime are socioeconomic. Education, wealth and income have displaced race and ethnicity in large part because they are far easier to force on a population than race-specific roundups in the middle of the night. Synthetic economic depressions and covert adulteration of food with slow-acting poisons exploit differences in income and education, respectively. You can’t easily change your income bracket, but blind belief in medical and governmental authorities about food and health in this day and age is a prescription for early death without healthy offspring which can be easily avoided simply by educating yourself about commonsensical things like what food is and isn’t.
There’s a reason that food tastes and smells good and toxins taste and smell bad: these sensory reactions are the fruit of zillions of years of evolutionary adaptation, a natural intelligence that allows you to tell the two apart. It’s a safe bet that deliberately deceiving your body with chemicals which are designed to mimic the look, smell or taste of food without providing the corresponding nutrition is probably a bad idea. In fact this is how poisons like nerve gas kill: it’s similar enough to a neurotransmitter that the body incorporates it into that metabolic pathway, but it doesn’t act as a neurotransmitter and so neural impulses are blocked. Conceptually, artificial flavors act in the same way insofar as they appear to be food but only at a superficial level.
A study at the Imperial College of London found that people who drink a single 12-ounce soda a day increased their risk of type-2 diabetes by 18 percent – compared to those who avoided soda.
A study from Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found that women who drink one soda per day double their risk of developing type-2 diabetes – compared to women who drink less than one soda per month.
“Unfortunately, many patients in my practice, and others seen in consultation, developed serious metabolic, neurologic and other complications that could be specifically attributed to using aspartame products. This was evidenced by the loss of diabetic control, the intensification of hypoglycemia, the occurrence of presumed ‘insulin reactions’ (including convulsions) that proved to be aspartame reactions, and the precipitation, aggravation or simulation of diabetic complications (especially impaired vision and neuropathy) while using these products… dramatic improvement of such features after avoiding aspartame, and the prompt predictable recurrence of these problems when the patient resumed aspartame products, knowingly or inadvertently.” – H.J.Roberts, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.C.C.P
“In view of all these indications that the cancer-causing potential of aspartame is a matter that had been established way beyond any reasonable doubt, one can ask: What is the reason for the apparent refusal by the FDA to invoke for this food additive the so-called Delaney Amendment to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act? Is it not clear beyond any shadow of a doubt that aspartame has caused brain tumors or brain cancer in animals?” – Dr. Adrian Gross, former FDA toxicologist
“So in the case of diet drinks in aluminum cans, the very toxic brain aluminum fluoride compound co-exists with multiple toxins found in aspartame, thus creating the most powerful government-approved toxic soup imaginable. With the strong association between aluminum, excitotoxins, aluminum fluoride complexes and Alzheimer’s disease, it would be completely irresponsible to encourage people to consume this toxic mixture.” – Russell Blaylock, M.D.
Uninformed consumers, in an effort to reduce sugar intake and reduce the risk of diabetes, tend to think that artificial sweeteners offer some kind of ‘safe’ alternative to processed sugar. But, as we now know, the scientific evidence is abundantly clear – consuming artificial sweeteners actually increase the risk of obesity, diabetes plus many other health problems. ….
