Why I’m Dumping Sucralose And All Other Artificial Sweeteners From My Diet

I’m not an expert when it comes to the science of modern foods. But I have come to my own conclusion that taking artificial foods is a bad choice.

Recently, artificial sweeteners have come to my attention.

Here’s a good article and video I found that talk about the effects of Sucralose and why you shouldn’t take it:

I have read varying reports of the problems with artificial sweeteners but mostly there seems to be a consensus that it’s not good for you.

Why Eat Organic?

Most people who choose to eat organic do so for the simple reason of good health. They want to eliminate the threat of poisonous pesticides, fertilizers, and drugs that are used to produce most of the food that in on the super market shelves.

Food is meant as fuel for the body. That’s what it is basically for. But if the food is not safe — if it is covered with pesticides and filled with drugs then it becomes poison rather than fuel.

Are You What You Eat?

That old saying, “You are what you eat” has been around for a while. I am kind of inclined to believe that there is a lot to the concept.

So what are you eating? What is in the food that you eat each day? Do you know your food well enough?

Our food supply is filled with toxic substances. I know, I know. The government has established safety guidelines for how much of the toxic substances we can safely eat. Wait! EATING any toxic substances doesn’t sound all that safe to me!
