Below is a summary of the article.  To read the complete article click on this link:

  • Artificial sweeteners are synthetically produced in a laboratory, or are sugars that have been highly processed. The following 5 artificial sweeteners and food additives pose grave dangers to your health and increase cancerous activity:
    • Acesulfame potassium (acesulfame-K)
    • Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
    • Sucralose (Splenda®)
    • Aspartame
    • Sodium benzoate
  • Acesulfame is associated with increased risk of leukemia, thymus cancer, breast cancer, and chronic respiratory disease.
  • Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer and preservative added to many packaged and canned goods. Research has found that monosodium glutamate is associated with chronic inflammation, liver damage, weight loss resistance, and chronic pain.
  • Sucralose (Splenda®) is produced with three chlorine atoms in a highly processed series of reactions which results in damaged gut microflora. Gut dysbiosis leads to an array of problems and diseases including cardiovascular, autoimmune, neurological, psychiatric, and cancer.
  • Aspartame is made up of phenylalanine (50%), aspartic acid (40%), and methanol (10%). The chemical aspartic acid functions as an excitotoxin, stimulating neurons and destroying nerve cells. Researchers have found that when cancer cells are subjected to aspartame, they directly increased in activity and mobility.
  • Sodium benzoate is added to food and beverages like energy drinks and soda and has been linked to ADHD, asthma, and other inflammatory disorders. When sodium benzoate is combined with ascorbic acid (common in soft drinks), the two form a highly carcinogenic compound − benzene. Benzene is strongly linked to cancers including leukemia and lymphoma.
