    Stevia good.
    Honey OK.
    Suger OK.

    I have been growing and using Stevia for about 7 years now. Good stuff.

    Aspartame - Sweet Misery

    Aspartame – I was not sure if this is common knowledge on this site so I thought to add my -2cts (deflation)

    While recovering from an lengthy hospital stay, I spent most my time on the web. It was amazing the things that I discovered. I came across a few sites that contained the dangers of aspartame and was astounded on what I found.
    Just read the ingredients and see just how much aspartame there is in the products.

    Just some keys facts:

    Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious including seizures and death.(1) A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as being caused by aspartame include: Headaches/migraines, dizziness, seizures, nausea, numbness, muscle spasms, weight gain, rashes, depression, fatigue, irritability, tachycardia, insomnia, vision problems, hearing loss, heart palpitations, breathing difficulties, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, loss of taste, tinnitus, vertigo, memory loss, and joint pain.
    The risk to infants, children, pregnant women, the elderly and persons with certain chronic health problems from excitotoxins are great.

    Methanol (aka wood alcohol/poison) (10 percent of aspartame)
    Methanol/wood alcohol is a deadly poison. Some people may remember methanol as the poison that has caused some "skid row" alcoholics to end up blind or dead. Methanol is gradually released in the small intestine when the methyl group of aspartame encounter the enzyme chymotrypsin.
    It has been pointed out that some fruit juices and alcoholic beverages contain small amounts of methanol. It is important to remember, however, that methanol never appears alone. In every case, ethanol is present, usually in much higher amounts. Ethanol is an antidote for methanol toxicity in humans.(9) The troops of Desert Storm were "treated" to large amounts of aspartame-sweetened beverages, which had been heated to over 86 degrees F in the Saudi Arabian sun. Many of them returned home with numerous disorders similar to what has been seen in persons who have been chemically poisoned by formaldehyde. The free methanol in the beverages may have been a contributing factor in these illnesses. Other breakdown products of aspartame such as DKP (discussed below) may also have been a factor.

    Diketopiperazine (DKP)
    DKP is a byproduct of aspartame metabolism. DKP has been implicated in the occurrence of brain tumors. Olney noticed that DKP, when nitrosated in the gut, produced a compound that was similar to N-nitrosourea, a powerful brain tumor causing chemical. Some authors have said that DKP is produced after aspartame ingestion. I am not sure if that is correct. It is definitely true that DKP is formed in liquid aspartame-containing products during prolonged storage.


    Aspartame & Aspartame Poisoning Information Site
    In light of the new ruling from W.H.O., it was time for me to revise this article a bit—mostly because the files I once kept to back up the data in this article are no longer available online (from…

    Aspartame (Nutrasweet) Toxicity Information Center

    Aspatame side effects
    There are over 92 different health symptoms associated with aspartame consumption. It seems surreal, but true.

    I have cut out all sugar intake other than for coffe or tea. For an alternative sugar, I have been using Stevia.

    Basically, this is Stevia:

    Stevia is a word both for a plant and for a sweetener extracted from the leaves of that plant. Stevia has been grown and used in South America for centuries, and it spread to the rest of the world during the 18th century, when people first began taking the product with them to Europe in large volumes.
    It has been shown that stevia is much sweeter than other sugars, meaning that only a small amount needs to be used. The body also processes stevia very slowly, which greatly reduces the risk of a sugar high. In addition, stevia is essentially calorie free, which is why it is popular with dieters. Research also suggests that stevia may be safe for diabetics, although diabetics should always consult their doctors about additions to their diet which may alter their blood sugar.
    Although stevia sounds like a miracle herb, scientific research may suggest otherwise. Some scientists are concerned that stevia may be a mutagen, meaning that it could cause cancer. Stevia has also been linked to reproductive malfunction. Some of these studies have been imperfectly performed, but the need for more thorough analysis of the compound has certainly been demonstrated. Proponents of stevia suggest that these studies may be part of a larger effort on the part of sugar companies to keep alternatives to sugar off the market, pointing out that stevia is widely used in South America and Asia with no noticeable ill effects. Given the argument over stevia, it would appear that more controlled studies are needed.

    Before I went into the hospital, I drank A LOT of diet sodas for many many years. At times I was experiencing severe headaches after drinking the diet cola’s. I have not drank any type of soda in over two years and have not had that particular type of head ache since. I think it was do to the very large amounts of aspartame that I was taking in (not just diet drinks but there are very many other things that contain the stuff), of course other friends just say I am mental.
