Is This FDA-Approved Sweetener Causing Brain Damage

By Joan McDaniel June 19, 2012 Updated September 3, 2013

It sometimes seems to me that Big X wants us all weak, sick, and with dementia or Alzheimer’s. It seems to me that Big business, big Pharma, big Agriculture, and Big Commercial Interest seem to be in charge.  They are more concerned with marketing ploys, and the bottom line then with independent health studies.  Studies on the huge amount of side effects from aspartame have been ignored. We are too busy looking at preventing a certain disease then how to be healthy?

The dangers of Aspartame

Any thoughts of changing addiction to sugar by turning to artificial sweeteners instead, here is the straight story of the most common artificial sweetener, Aspartame.

Donald Rumsfeld – yes, the same Donald Rumsfeld who helped waltz the US into the Iraq War – is the political operative to revived the chemical Aspertame after the FDA rejected it as too unsafe for human consumption.

One of the first things the Reagan administration did when it got into office in 1981 was kick out the FDA commissioner who was “holding up” aspartame and put in a new one who promptly approved it.


Why is this poison still allowed?

It’s all about politics…

Blood Test Results are Not an Indication of Good Health

While I was sick and getting well, it seems that if my blood test numbers were all at the proper level, I must be well, no matter how I felt. My concerned for health seemed to be mine alone. When I asked questions about what food should I eat, I was told either DON’T EAT SALT  or It doesn’t matter much with someone and your condition or  lose weight  or “It’s all in your head”, or “Are you getting enough exercise?”

In fact, I found that indeed my health had something to do with the food I was eating.  I had been eating the traditional American Diet which is loaded with sugar and absent of all nutrition.  I now have been finding good food to eat.  Good nutritious food and I am feeing 100% better.

Coconut Cures

By Bruce Fife.

This book discusses the health benefits of coconut oil, meat, milk, and water. In this book you will learn why coconut oil is considered the healthiest oil on earth and how it can protect you against heart disease, insulin resistant diabetes, and infectious illnesses such as influenza, herpes, Candida, and even HIV.

One of the other great finds I uncovered was Coconut Oil but enough of that later.  As I am finding out about this great food, I feel I must tell others. I am learning as I go along and expect people to research what I have to say on their own.  It is sort of take it or leave it.  If you learn anything, then great!!!!

Keep watching these post for I will documented my experience with many foods that have cause major changes in my health.  But today I would like to address another find of mine that is as much good for you, safe, and fun to eat as Stevia.

It is salt.

This article came from none other than the New York Times and others.

Salt, We Misjudged You

Study shows People who ate Lower salt diet increase risk of unhealthy heart conditions.

It’s Time to End the War on Salt | Benefits of Natural Sea Salt

Mind you, doctors have a phobia against the mixture of salt and high blood pressure. Since I had already been sick, and with great reluctance thinking this would probably finish me off. I have  been hypertensive for years, avoided salt but my pressure never got any better. Maybe it had nothing to do about salt but lack of nutrition.  After reading those articles,  I went to a health food store a women next to me said, “Oh Look Himalayan Sea Salt”. Well since I had already done  my last will and testament, I bought the salt, went home poured some into my hand and tasted it.  WOW

I found a wonderful surprise and an explosion in taste.   It was Himalayan pink sea salt.  It is sweet to the taste. And colored Pink. 


Himalayan sea salt is one of the healthiest salts on the market. It is delicious tasting, free of bleaches, preservative or chemical additives. Unlike table salt, where everything has  been striped, this salt is rich with 84 different minerals .  Free of bleaches, preservatives or chemical additives. We need sea salt for its very important minerals. According to an article by Elizabeth Walling “a low-salt” diet increases risk of stroke and heart disease, a study says. I have found that years of hypothyroidism has weakened me, creating a large goiter, while I have starving my thyroid of Iodine, trying to avoid salt. This sea salt is helping my thyroid return my strength and I am thanking this great food additive.

But don’t take this as advice that salt intake should be completely unlimited. Moderation appears to be key, those who consumed more than 8,000 mg of sodium  per day were 50 to 70 percent more likely to have a stroke or heart attack, or to be hospitalized or die from heart disease.

Results from this study indicates that people who already consume a moderate amount of sodium do not benefit from lowering their salt intake. In fact, it may even harm them.

I have not explained this to my doctor, for he doesn’t understand why I don’t need the med Synthroid anymore either.

    I have been using Pink Himalayan salt for years now. I just have a concern that it states that it does not contain iodine. I try to get my iodine from Kelp. Is there a brand of pink salt that does contain iodine?

    • Sharon, Sorry it took me this long to find my source for the salt. You are correct there is not a mention of Iodine on the label of Himalayan Salt but I knew I had it somewhere. Here is where I found the data

      This form of salt, also known as gray salt, is an excellent source of naturally-occuring iodine. While many types of table salt are iodine-enriched, they are also stripped of all their natural health properties, and are chemically processed. Just one gram of himalayan salt contains approximately 500/mcg of iodine.

  2. Thank you ffor every other magnificent article.
    Where else may anybody get that kind of information in such
    an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation subseqent
    week, and I’m at the look for such info.
