A Sour View of Corn Refiners' Sweetener Ads NEW YORK (/AdAge) -- Is it really dumb to be concerned about high fructose corn syrup as a sweetener in food products? That's certainly the way it's portrayed in the Corn Refiners Association's massive new advertising campaign. The TV commercials heavily sell the idea that the sugar substitute poses no health risk when consumed in "moderation." But Connie Bennett, author of the book "Sugar Shock," rebuts the premise that "moderate" consumption of high fructose corn syrup is possible in today's grocery marketplace.

** Old version ** The Dangers of Aspartame (Artificial Sweeteners, Sugarfree, Diet, Zero, E951) A new, longer version is now available! Aspartame (E951) is an artificial sweetener, used in over 6000 products. The food industry claims that aspartame helps you to lose weight, but why is obesity then becoming an ever increasing problem? Aspartame is a very sweet chemical, responsible for many health problems including obesity, diabetes, cancer, brain diseases, migraines, ADHD, etc. Aspartame breaks down into three components: 1. Methanol. This is the poisonous kind of alcohol. Once in the body, methanol breaks down into formaldehyde, which is a poison. 2. Phenylalanine. This decreases the amount serotonin in your brain, which leads to mood swings (depressions) and an increased appetite! This is why aspartame is one of the main causes for the current obesity epidemic. 3. Aspartic acid. This is a neurological toxin comparable to MSG. The US Department of Health has recorded 92 (!) symptoms following complaints about aspartame. In fact, over 80% of all complaints filed with FDA are aspartame related! www.321 Some of the brand names for aspartame: NutraSweet, Equal, NatraTaste, Canderel, Spoonful, Equal-Measure, etc. Aspartame is used in any of the following products: Sugarfree, Light, Diet, Zero (Coke, Sprite & Fanta), Coke 007, Pepsi Max, Crystal Clear, Low-Calorie, Crystal Light, No Sugar Added, Sportlife, Stimorol Ice, Stimorol Fusion, Freedent, Mentos, Smint, etc. If you use any of these products, please watch this investigative report by ...

Atkins Diet: Daily Sweetener Limit In this video, I deal with a much overlooked section of the Induction phase (and latter phases). It covers the daily sweetener limit. Dr. Atkins recommends no more than three servings or packets of sweeteners per day. That means each Diet Coke with Splenda or packet of Splenda in your coffee is counted against that limit. Why did he set the limit at three when the Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) levels set by the FDA are usually much higher 6-10 cans of soda for Saccharin or Splenda depending on body weight? First, he of course urged to eat as much unprocessed food as possible, and adding additional chemicals to your diet or sweetened foods was never seen as a mainstay of the diet. It was also useful to break old eating habits of dessert following each meal. To reward yourself consistently with a "sweet." Your tongue or tastebuds could then begin to relearn how to taste the more subtle sweetness of vegetables and fruit. Finally he wanted to prevent the cephalic insulin reaction from stalling the diet followers. The more sweetness the greater likelihood of that insulin release. Thanks for watching!

Dr Rutledge Diet Drinks, Artificial Sweeteners & Obesity www.MGB.FM www.mgb.fm Call Dr. Rutledge 702-714-0011 or Email: DrR@ Diet Drinks, Artificial Sweeteners & Obesity. Diet Sweeteners Can Make You Sick and Fat. Today 59 percent of Americans consume diet soft drinks. Artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose may actually promote obesity and weight gain, says research. research published in the International Journal of Obesity reveals that artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose -- precisely the kinds of chemical sweeteners found in diet soft drinks or many low-carb food products -- may actually promote obesity by tricking the body into thinking that sweet-tasting foods and drinks don't contain as many calories as they really do. In the experiments, rats who were fed artificially-sweetened foods tended to overeat foods containing real sweeteners, causing them to gain weight. In humans, it's the same result: drink diet soft drinks and consume enough foods made with artificial sweeteners, and you'll very likely overeat the sweets when the real thing comes along: apple pie, cookies, cake, ice cream, and so on. www.mgb.fm Call Dr. Rutledge 702-714-0011 or Email: DrR@

Stevia - The Herbal Sweetener Okay, let's say you like the idea of trying interesting teas from china. But what about sweetener? Well, if you're like me, of course, honey is a natural choice. But recently I discovered an herb that is very sweet. It's been used by the Guarani Indians of Paraguay for hundreds of years. This herb is called Stevia rebaudiana, or sweet leaf, because of the sweet taste of its leaves. This plant is an annual, and it grows well in containers or raised beds, where the plants can stay moist but not too wet. If you shop whole foods or nutrition stores, you can find stevia as a nutritional supplement. You just can't believe how sweet this herb is. It's really fantastic, and the thing about it is, you can collect the leaves and dry them, or you can use them fresh. And it's the leaves you want to pick. The stems aren't nearly as sweet as the leaves themselves.

Atkins Diet: Acceptable Low Carb Sweeteners In this video, I give my perspective on the acceptable sweeteners for those following a low carb diet. A number of new sweeteners have hit the market since Dr. Atkins wrote his book, and while I don't presume to talk for him, I am giving my perspective on the sweeteners on the market based upon personal experience and meta-***ysis of the experts in the field. As with most things, your experience may differ from mine or the norm, and you may be able to consume a particular sweetener and have no side effects and continue to lose weight at the rate expected. One final note -- one thing Dr. Atkins said was our food should be as unprocessed as possible, and that we should shop the exterior of the grocery store. Most of the foods sweetened with these items are in the middle or a special health food section. The vast majority of your food on the Atkins Diet should be regular food with natural ingredients. Each day or even meal does not need a dessert to cap it off. Acceptable Sweeteners: * Splenda (sucralose) - granulated or liquid form ( bit.ly ) * Saccharin * Stevia - Natural * Rebiana extract ( bit.ly ) * * m.nih.gov * Oligofructose / Inulin ( -- bit.ly * Inulin works just like fiber and is made out of plants like chicory root and isn't digested like other starches, it isn't absorbed, so it doesn't have an effect on blood sugar. * Inulin (IN-yoo-lin) is used as a test to help diagnose problems or ...

It was "Officially" discovered in the late 19th century by Dr. Moises Santiago Bertoni. He was given samples of the plant and he reported that "one small piece of the leaf will keep the mouth sweet for an hour". He named the plant Stevia Rebuadiani Bertoni in honor of a Paraguayan chemist name Rebaudi. Bertoni found that the Guarani Indians had been using the leaves of the plant to sweeten bitter teas and as a sweet treat. What are the benefits of Using Stevia? Studies have shown the following benefits from using Stevia in one's diet.
