Is Your Sugar Free Gum Making You Sick?
Do you chew sugar free gum and have any of these symptoms: headache, mood alteration, nausea, dizziness, changes in vision, seizures, memory loss, fatigue, shooting pains, spasms, leg numbness, tinnitus, depression, anxiety, joint pain, and slurred speech (this is only a partial list, there are at least 92 known side effects). Aspartame, a common additive in sugar free foods, such a chewing gum and diet soda, has been linked to several other diseases such as multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, brain tumors, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, birth defects, and lymphoma. So how did it get into our food you might ask? It’s a long story, but it involves corruption and very little scientific evidence of safety.

As I mentioned in a previous blog, it just might be the thing holding you back from reaching your weight loss goals.
