Aspartame Warnings - How Many do we have to have?

Once again Aspartame is in the news.. this time with the results of an Italian study which demonstrated the incidence of increased cancer in rats fed with Aspartame. We here at Best Health have been telling people for years to get off this nasty substance.

The effects can be insidious and people who finally wake up and stop using it can experience relief from many niggling and not so minor symptoms. Try it and see.. just for even a week, stop your diet drinks, your sugar free chewing gum, or mints .. see what happens.
We suggest that symptoms such as irritability, nervousness, possibly headaches, rashes, digestive disturbance and more can "magically" disappear. For a great site with lots of info on the subject you can go to the Aspartame Toxicity info site.

Big business has a big say in whether our watchdogs sit up and take notice. So if the FDA is ignoring this Italian study you may want to ask yourself why? Is it because the study is flawed, or is it because it is in the interest of those with power to ignore it? We suggest there is a lot of ignoring going on.

Stand Up and Show Your Soul

I fell across an article from Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D Author of the best seller Women Who Run with the Wolves today and it resonated so much with what I would like to say to each and everyone of us in this time that I needed to bring it to the attention of us all.

She says we are made for this time, it is our time, and it is not the time to focus on the heaviness and the wrongs of this chaotic world we are living in. But it is the time to stand up and show our souls. To join our lights to that of others of like minds and hearts, - it is not our job to make a massive change but to add our voice and heart to the surge of the thousands of others who are stretching out to mend the part of the world that is wihin our reach.
