One word… neurotoxins.
These foods are not made or processed in a natural way. Pubmed published an article showing common brands of foods that contained high fructose corn syrup also contained mercury. Why you ask? Because one way to make high fructose corn syrup is through a mercury removal process, and mercury is a known neuro-toxin. Artificial sweeteners are thousands of times sweeter than even regular sugar and make your brain crave more sugar. So if you’re using these no calorie sugar free sweeteners to lose weight, or help with diabetes, you’re sabotaging yourself because you’re literally making your body crave more sugar! These sweeteners disrupt the production of hormones that literally tell you you’re full and help break down fat. Healthy people do not drink sugar free beverages, they drink water. Artificial coloring has actually been banned in some European countries, and as a result, they are finding that their rates off ADD have gone down, while ours still seem to be on the rise. Artificial coloring, like MSG and mercury are neurotoxins which can trigger migraine headaches, as well as other neurological disorders.
