Why artificial sweeteners make you eat more! (Part TWO of TWO)






FDA Approved

After 10+ years.


Why Now?


By Kelly Campbell



This is supposed to be

great news for consumers,

but it begs the question:

Why did it take corporate

giants like PepsiCo and

Coca-Cola to get the FDA

to finally provide consumers

with a healthy alternative

to artificial sweeteners?

The answer is found

in multiple places.

First, look on the nutrition

label of any so-called “diet”

product or anything labeled



many people believe they’re

doing a service to their body

by consuming these products,

when in reality,

they are doing much harm

on a cellular level.

Studies also confirm that

people who consume artificial

sweeteners actually tend to

overeat because the artificial

sweeteners “turn off” the part

of your brain that let’s you

know you’re full.

And many people are of

the mentality that because

they are drinking “diet” soda,

it’s okay to eat super-sized

French fries.




According to Dr. Joseph Mercola,

“Normally, when a significant

quantity of carbohydrates

are consumed,

serotonin levels rise

in the brain.

This is manifested as a

relaxed feeling after a meal.

When aspartame is ingested

with carbohydrates,

such as having a sandwich

with a diet drink,

aspartame causes the brain

to cease production of serotonin,

meaning that the feeling of

having had enough never


You then eat more foods,

many containing aspartame,

and the cycle continues.”




And because it is nearly

impossible to avoid aspartame

when consuming “diet” products,

many people report adverse

health conditions from its use.

Let me reiterate a

point made earlier:

The FDA has received more

complaints about adverse

reactions to aspartame than

any other food ingredient

in the agency’s history.

(Yet, it’s still on the

market in full force.)

The other part of the answer

comes down to money,

as most things concerning

big corporations and

government organizations do.

“Monsanto’s profit from its

NutraSweet Division was

$993 million [back] in 1990.”




Imagine what that

number is today!

And because stevia extract

itself cannot be patented

because it is a naturally

grown plant –

as opposed to an artificial

sweetener created in a l

ab with chemicals –

it was not a high priority

of the FDA’s or any corporation’s

because they were making

tons of money selling their

artificial sweeteners

to manufacturers.

Aspartame alone is in over

10,000 consumer products.

Now that those corporations

have figured out how to patent

a stevia alternative by creating

their own blend of ingredients

containing a derivative of the

stevia plant,

there’s money to be made.

The irony is that records

indicate stevia extract and

the leaves of the plant have

been used since 1887 –

when natural scientist,

Antonio Bertoni first recorded

its usage by native tribes –

while artificial sweeteners,

like aspartame,

were passed through FDA

approvals in no time.




We know that 100% organic

stevia extract is safe and

truly all-natural,

there are no known

stevia side effects.


when giant corporations stand

to gain by altering, or adding to,

Mother Nature

(and the FDA passes

swift approval),

proceed with some caution.

If you decide to switch

to Truvia® or PureVia®,

or any of the other

Rebiana-based sweeteners

that are sure to come to market,

be mindful of how they affect you.

Each person reacts

differently to foods,

beverages and sweeteners.

So, as with all things

we put into our bodies,

please use these products

in moderation.

I’ll leave you with this bit

of advice from neurosurgeon

and leading expert on excitotoxins,

Russell Blaylock, M.D.,

on these Rebiana-based


In The Blaylock Wellness Report,

he says “Until Truvia® is analyzed,

my personal opinion is continue

to boycott Coke and Pepsi

who have participated in the

mass poisoning of the world

with full knowledge (aspartame).

If you just have to

have a cola regardless,

[have a natural cola made]

with citric acid and sugar.

I recommend using

healthy drinks instead,

and Whole Foods has an

aisle full of them.

They ban aspartame

and Splenda®.”
