You May Be Drinking This Deadly Chemical Every Day And Not Even Know It
We’ve shared research with you many times before that shows artificial sweeteners may be little more than packets of poison. If you’re smart you gave them up long ago. That’s because the most credible science shows that they can slash your immunity against disease. And put you at risk for liver and kidney problems.
But even if you’ve pitched those little yellow or pink packets, you and your loved ones may still be getting sweeteners every day. And you’ll never believe how you’re getting them. That’s because they come from the last source you’d ever suspect.
Poison From the Purest Source
A new report shows that 28 million Americans get artificial sweeteners every day. But they have no clue that they do.
The report comes from Dr. Douglas Mawhinney. He’s a leading scientist with the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) in Las Vegas. And before that he was a top toxicology researcher at Cornell University.
He looked at water samples from 19 different water plants. And he found that 15 of them pump out water that contains sucralose.
That’s a chemical usually marketed as Splenda. And it’s already the number one artificial sweetener in foods and drinks. But his new report shows that even people are getting it than we think.
And that’s a problem. Plenty of research shows that sucralose is one of the worst things for your health.
Packets of Death
A study from Duke University showed how bad it is for you. It was headed by a top researcher there – Dr. Bahie Abou-Donia. And you can read about his results in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health.
He fed sucralose to lab rats for 12 weeks. At the end of the 12 weeks, he found that the rats on the sweetener had put on weight.
But then he decided to find out what was going on at the cellular level. So he killed half the rats, sliced them up and took a look inside.
And this is what he found.
The sweetener had destroyed the good bacteria in their guts. And that’s bad news for health. Plenty of research shows these good bacteria helps fight disease.
“Studies suggest these bacteria protect you not just from food-borne pathogens but from cold-causing germs,” says Dr. Justin Sonnenburg. He’s a top immunology doctor at Stanford School of Medicine.
And that’s not the only reason that these packets of poison are bad for you.
If you have any doubts how destructive they are…let us introduce you to Dr. James Bowen.
He got his MD from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He was in the National MS School of Fame for his research and work. And U.S. News named him one of their Top Doctors.
But the real reason we’re telling you about him is because he’s spent 30 years looking into artificial sweeteners.
“Lying on the artificial sweetener issue has been the FDA’s Modus Operandi ever since Donald Rumsfeld put aspartame on the market,” he says.
And he says the truth is, these sweeteners are “toxic and patently unsafe for human use.”
Sweeteners Are One Chemical Bond Away from Bleach
“Synthetic sweeteners are unsafe for human consumption,” says Dr. Bowen.
And if you have any doubts about that, you should know they share a root source with things we all know are deadly.
“Sucralose is simply a chlorocarbon,” says Dr. Bowen
That might not mean much to you. It doesn’t have to. But you should know that other chlorocarbons are used in:
- Hydrochloric acid
In fact…these things are so deadly they were even used in a WWI poison gas!
“It’s nature’s attack dog,” says Dr. Bowen. “A ferocious atomic element.”
And this connection explains why the Duke study got the results it did.
“Sucralose delivers chlorine into our cells through normal metabolization,” says Dr. Bowen. “This makes them effective insecticides and preservatives. Preservatives kill anything alive to prevent bacterial decomposition.”
So it’s easy to see why the Duke researchers found out that sucralose kills all the good bacteria in your gut.
“We shouldn’t be fooled into accepting toxic chemicals on the blessing of the FDA,” says Dr. Bowen. “In terms of long-term human toxicity we should regard sucralose with its chemical cousin DDT.”
But that’s not all that’s bad about sucralose.
The final bit of evidence against it comes from animal tests.
“Sucralose has been found to shrink (immunity) and produce liver inflammation in rats and mice,” says Dr. Bowen
And he’s right. Studies show that sucralose can make your liver swell and your kidney calcify.
“They attack the human nervous system and many other body systems including genetics and the immune function,” he says.
How You Can Keep Your Water Pure
Now you know just how bad artificial sweeteners are for you. So if you’re smart you’ll want to cut them out of your diet altogether.
But the fact that your drinking water may contain them doesn’t have to be a problem.
All you have to do is opt instead for bottled water. If you go this route though remember to buy water…that comes in glass bottles.
That’s because plastic bottles sometimes contain estrogen mimics and bacteria.
The other thing you can do is buy a filter to make sure your water is purified. And these filters also take care of other toxins that can also seep into your tap water.
