Good Health Includes the Spirit!

Sorry I haven’t added any new posts lately.  I have been extremely busy with my latest project – a book called “They’re Not Gone.”

Most people who are into natural health are aware that being healthy involves balance in all three aspects of mind, body, and spirit.

Well, They’re Not Gone was my journey into connecting with spirit.  Here is a little about it!

Local Author Sharing Hope for the Holidays with New Book titled

“They’re Not Gone.”

Phoenixville, PA – December 02, 2009 – Local author, A.P. Morris, released a non-fiction book, They’re Not Gone, to coincide with the holiday season.

They’re Not Gone shares stories of 13 people whose loved ones passed away and their eventual ‘reconnection’ through the assistance of local Psychic Medium, Ricky Wood. Each story contains ‘evidence’ that their spirits are still very much alive.  Wood delivers specifics from names and dates to mannerisms and jokes to verify the spirit who is communicating.

“I wanted to share my story to give others hope, especially during the holiday season when missing them can be even more difficult.  I am now 100% positive that our loved ones don’t vanish with death, they are still very much alive,” Morris said.

A.P. Morris’s story in the book tells of the loss of her brother to suicide when she was just 16 years old.  After hearing from him through Psychic medium Ricky Wood, her life was transformed.  Ricky Wood referred to a nickname of her brother’s that she had never told a soul about, allowing her to know definitively that he was still ‘alive.’

“I spent so many holiday seasons sad and depressed because I missed my brother so desperately.  If I’d only known that he wasn’t just gone, I think it may have been a whole lot easier for me,” A.P. Morris, author, said.

Each story offers a different type of love, loss, and lesson. Whether you’ve lost a child, spouse, parent, or great friend, there is a relationship that everyone can relate with.  Following each story, there is a question and answer section where the reader gets to learn more about Ricky’s beliefs based on his years of experience working as a Psychic Medium.

“I’m very excited to have the opportunity to share some amazing true life stories.  The information contained in this book could change so many people’s lives.  I know – it changed mine,” Morris said.

A.P. Morris feels that it was easier for her to believe in the continued existence of our spirits after she received ‘proof.’  Her hope is that by sharing these stories it will bring peace to many people’s lives, especially during this holiday season.

To purchase a copy of the book “They’re Not Gone,” for $16.95 visit www.Amazon.com or www.theyrenotgone.com

Meet the Author – at the “Holiday Bazaar” at Phoenixville Middle School (hosted by the National Junior Honor Society) on Saturday December 12, 2009 from 10am – 3pm.

Swine Flu vaccine….safe? USA – Vaccine obsessed?

vaccine

I know… all the pro-vacciner’s are probably already pissed from   the  title.

I’m not here to say whether they are good or bad.

Although personally I feel there are entirely too many given to our children.  ESPECIALLY when they are given 3 and 4 shots at once!

I feel this way through personal experience when my daughter received 4 at once and within a week developed a 105 degree fever.  After a work up in the emergency room I was told “there is nothing wrong with her.”

After this she developed Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Huh, coincidence.  I think not.  Even medical doctors today who are for vaccine’s have no qualms about her NOT getting anymore – which says something in this day and age.

A friend of mine recently took her son to the doctor and they wanted to give him 3 shots at once.  When she heeded my advice  to

  • have one at a time
  • months apart
  • and when he was healthy.

Well her previously well-mannered doctor had a fit. (talking down to her with irritation and annoyance)

So WHY is it that doctors are so angered by parents wanting to be “safe” in this day and age of extraordinary amount of diagnosis – autism, ADHD, bipolar, and many more?

I mean – these were so rare when i was a kid. And yes they were rare, even if a few were undiagnosed.

No i don’t believe that vaccines are evil. I believe too many, to soon, together, along with dangerous preservatives is wrong.

But put together the so called food most people eat these days – artificial this and that – nothing alive like fresh fruits and veggies.  (Even those are so much less healthy because of overworked soil and pesticides) Along with the amount of vaccines we receive and pollution.

Mix it all together and what do we get – tons of childhood illness that were almost unheard of 30 years ago.

So – it now seems that the powers that be who push this ridiculous amount of vaccines are even scaring some of the medical community.  Take a look at this –

Contains Thimerosal? That lovely mercury preservative so disputed these days….if you still haven’t gotten clear on what it is and why it is so bad, here you go….

Thimerosal

Thimerosal is the preservative of choice for vaccine manufacturers. First introduced by Eli Lilly and Company in the late 1920s and early 1930s, the company began selling it as a preservative in vaccines in the 1940s. Thimerosal contains 49.6 percent mercury by weight and is metabolized or degraded into ethylmercury and thiosalicylate. Mercury, or more precisely, ethylmercury, is the principle agent that kills contaminants. Unfortunately, mercury also kills much more than that.

The Department of Defense classifies mercury as a hazardous material that could cause death if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Studies indicate that mercury tends to accumulate in the brains of primates and other animals after they are injected with vaccines. Mercury poisoning has been linked to cardiovascular disease, autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia and many other nervous system conditions. That’s why the FDA rigorously limits exposure to mercury in foods and drugs. Some common sources of mercury include dental amalgam fillings, various vaccines and certain fish contaminated by polluted ocean waters.

The toxicity of mercury has never been in question. The real question is precisely how much mercury-laced thimerosal is toxic, and what are the possible consequences for our children at low doses?

Eli Lilly and Co. supposedly answered this question for us back in 1930. Concluding thimerosal to be of “a very low order of toxicity . . . for man,” the company hired its own doctors to perform thimerosal experiments in Indianapolis City Hospital on meningitis patients during a severe outbreak in 1929. This 60-year-old evidence was still quoted on the company’s brochures as recently as 1990. Andrew Waters, who is involved in a lawsuit against Eli Lilly, claims that most critical studies on the toxicity of thimerosal were suppressed by the company until now.

Banned around the world, but not in the United States

That might explain why thimerosal was eliminated in many countries 20 years ago. In 1977, a Russian study found that adults exposed to ethylmercury, the form of mercury in thimerosal, suffered brain damage years later. Studies on thimerosal poisoning also describe tubular necrosis and nervous system injury, including obtundation, coma and death. As a result of these findings, Russia banned thimerosal from children’s vaccines in 1980. Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have also banned the preservative.

Eli Lilly stuck to its “scientific” facts, but the truth began slipping between the cracks in 1999. After the number of immunizations rose to 12 to 15 per child, the public finally became privy to the possible dangers of thimerosal. One 1999 study revealed that some infants, due to a genetic or developmental factor, lack the ability to eliminate mercury. Trace amounts of mercury in these infants, when accumulated over several vaccines, could pose a severe health risk. Some vaccines, such as vaccines for hepatitis B, contained as much as 12.5 micrograms of mercury per dose. That’s more than 100 times the EPA’s upper limit standard when administered to infants.

Why is mercury toxic in all ways except through vaccines? Enough said.

But…

The other thing that confuses me is this – if our vaccines are so great and our health care powers that be are so enlightened then why –

According to the World Health Organization,
those of us in the USA have the most
expensive health care in the world with
results at 72nd.

Is Fish or a Can of Tuna REALLY THAT Bad for You? Your Kids?

tunabg_070300

If you are a 140 lb woman eating 1 6 oz can of Albacore Tuna = you are getting 140% of the EPA limit of Mercury exposure!  For a 65 lb. child eating 3 oz. = 150% of the EPA limit of ‘safe’ mercury exposure.

In other words, there is way too much mercury to consider it “SAFE” to eat in my opinion. (Which sucks because I love tuna. And so does my daughter – which was something different to give her besides the daily PB & J.)

So about 4 years ago when I got into eating ‘organic’ & ‘healthy’ foods – I quit buying tuna and most foods from the typical grocery store.  I am delighted to see that a lot of stores these days at least have a small section with organic choices, although I look forward to a time when that is how most food is sold!

At first, I thought the can of Tuna on the shelf in the ‘healthy’ whole food store must be OK, Right?

It made me wonder what the difference was.  So I did a little searching online.

My first great discovery – a website called GOT MERCURY? – (very cute.. )  It has a ‘Mercury Calculator‘ so you can put in your weight and the type of fish (even differentiating between albacore, yellow fin, and light tuna) to find what your mercury exposure is.

There is even an ‘Advanced Calculator’ for people who consume more than 1 serving a week!  Brace yourself – you will be shocked at how much mercury you may be consuming!

Here is what I found for myself and the fish I like –

  • Tilapia –  0%
  • Salmon – 0%
  • Scallop – 20%
  • Flounder – 20%
  • Crab/Shrimp – 20%
  • Cod – 30%
  • Light Tuna – 50%

Now the NOT so good list –  (I ate occasionally and will now be avoiding!)sushi-7us2_small

  • Mahi Mahi – 60%
  • Halibut – 90%
  • Lobster – 110%
  • Yellow fin Tuna – 120%
  • Albacore Tuna – 130%
  • Orange Roughy – 200%

I did find this interesting the sight about Tuna –

How do I know if my tuna is chunk light or albacore? Most tuna cans are labeled as either albacore or chunk light. Albacore tuna, according to recent testing by the FDA, contains 3 times as much mercury as does chunk light. You should avoid albacore tuna if you wish to keep your blood mercury level low. There are exceptions, however. Some companies sell albacore that is troll-caught. These species are younger fish and therefore contain lower levels of mercury. According to a recent study from Oregon State University, troll-caught albacore mercury levels are similar to chunk light levels (on average. 0.14 parts per million). Data for troll-caught data in the mercury calculator above is from the OSU study. Cans of chunk light tuna typically contain skipjack tuna which is a smaller species of fish and therefore contains lower mercury levels (on average. 0.123 parts per million). You can compare the mercury levels between the two in the mercury calculator above.

For some reason – I always thought Albacore was the good one to get  – wow was I wrong!

Then I found in a Dr. Mercola article  – that Mercury is NOT the only worry

Other Contaminants include:

Think that Farm Raised means cleaner healthier fish?  Think again!

Factory-Farmed Fish

If you eat fish in a restaurant, it most likely came from a fish farm. Almost half of the salmon, 40 percent of the mollusks, and 65 percent of the freshwater fish consumed today are raised on fish farms. Not surprisingly, fish farming, a multimillion-dollar industry, has become one of the fastest-growing sections of the food production market.salmon_farm_2007-05-19_131006

What many people don’t know is that farmed fish face many of the same health issues as factory-farmed animals. In order to be profitable, fish farms must raise large quantities of fish in confined areas, and the overcrowding leads to disease and injuries to the fish. The fish are given antibiotics and chemicals for the parasites like sea lice, skin and gill infections and other diseases that commonly affect them.

The fish are also given drugs and hormones, and sometimes are genetically modified, to accelerate growth and change reproductive behaviors. Farmed salmon are also given chemicals, canthaxanthin and astaxanthin, to turn their flesh pink in order to make them more marketable. Wild salmon eat a diet of shrimp and krill, which contain natural chemicals that make the salmon pink. Farm-raised salmon do not eat a natural diet, so their flesh would be gray if they were not given the additives.

Unfortunately, my fish consumption is rare because of this information which is a shame because it is so good!

I didn’t realize how unhealthy Tuna was so I wanted to share what I’d learned.  We all hear that our oceans are contaminated but I was shocked at how badly.

Why this continues to happen?  Another blog….

Money Is Tight so What Fruits & Veggies Should I Buy Organic & Which Can I Buy Conventionally Grown?

CB054015

In today’s economy you may be feeling the pinch.  Even if you aren’t, you may be more aware of how much you are spending.  Either that is what is happening to me, or food prices just continue to climb!  Probably both.

But I am a believer in eating organically.  It is a fact that organically grown food has a higher vitamin/mineral content than conventionally grown produce.

Besides that I prefer to eat my fruits & veggies without all the pesticides and insecticides that conventionally grown produce offers you.  If you want to know why it is better to NOT consume these dangerous chemicals – that is a whole other blog!

So what to do when my shopping list is bigger than my budget and I’m out of coupons?  Buy some stuff that isn’t organic.  It doesn’t thrill me but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

What then is the ‘must have’ organic produce?  Which are OK to buy non-organic?

Announcing a new update to an old favorite: it’s the 5th edition of EWG’s classic Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides, now with the latest government data. This handy guide shows you the fruits and veggies with the most and least pesticides, so you know which to always buy organic and which are pretty clean even when conventionally grown.

In 2 Days NY Votes on Mandatory Vaccinations NO EXEMPTIONS!

This was my latest email from the NATURAL SOLUTIONS FOUNDATION. I was shocked that with all of the coverage on the potential adverse reactions, like “Green Our Vaccines”, that there is this push to mandate vaccinations with no exemptions! Don’t know why I’m shocked because – greed has no boundaries.

Anyway – great information here and a great foundation that keeps you informed! I know it looks like it is too long but take a few minutes- there is a lot of info that you should know! I’m still baffled how they don’t have to list 1-3 mcg of mercury when studies show that 1 mcg is toxic! Have a family member suffering from Alzheimers? Read on – you might find out 1 reason why that may be!

Why should our government tell us we have to inject chemicals into our own and our children’s bodies?

Legislature to vote June 10th

COMPULSORY VACCINATION IS COMING TO NEW YORK STATE KIDS UNLESS YOU ACT NOW!

WE HAVE 5 DAYS

Under proposed Assembly Bill 10942, NY surrenders its control of public health and makes every vaccination recomended by the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices mandatory. For the first time, vaccination of infants and toddlers becomes mandatory. Under this proposed law, there will be NO exemptions for any reason.

Why is New York giving away its rights to determine public health standards? Ralph Fucetola JD says in his blog (http://vitaminlawyerhealthfreedom.blogspot.com/2008/06/ny-mandates-pharma-forced-vaccine.html), “We have to think about the cowardice and stupidity of our elected representatives and ask why they are willing to surrender state sovereignty to the dominion of Big Pharma’s lies, while surrendering our well-being. They are turning the Police Power of the State into the Police State of Power!”

Take these 5 Action Steps Now and Alert Your Contacts to Do the Same

First NJ, Now NY: Is Your State Next?

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE IN NEW YORK STATE TO TELL NY LEGISLATORS THAT COMPULSORY IS VACCINATION A REALLY BAD IDEA!

New York State:
the New
Needle Park”

On June 10, 2008, unless we get enough voices to holler out loud, the New York Legislature pass “Fast Track” legislation making all shots recommended by the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) mandatory for EVERY child in New York.
  • No exemptions of conscience or religion
  • No objections by parents of already vaccine-damaged (or other vulnerable) kids.
  • No private school exemptions.
None. Gone. Vaporized by vote.

Is that OK with you? It’s certainly NOT OK with me.

  • Forget Parental Rights
  • Forget Civil Rights
  • Forget Exemptions.

Instead, every shot reccommended by ACIP, no matter how absurd or dangerous, will be mandatory. (The dangerous and unproven HPV vaccine will be mandated for your daughter) Every one.

Under the current ACIP vaccination schedule, children between the ages of birth and 7 years receive 47 doses of vaccines! No science shows this is either safe or effective.

By age 18 the total is 67 vaccine doses for boys and 70 for girls (including the absurd and dangerous HPV vaccines). No science shows this is either safe or effective. Quite a lot of science shows that it is neither.

New vaccines are being added at a furious clip: there is no profit in vaccines unless they are widely administered. How much more widely can they be administered? Well, how about compulsory vaccination for you, too? Under the same agency’s recommended schedule, if you manage to survive to age 70 and you have been unlucky enough to be “fully vaccinated”, you have received a walloping 70 vaccine doses since age 18 for a life-long total of 160 doses (men), 163 for women. And that doesn’t even begin to deal with “special” vaccines like smallpox, “Avian Flu” or other “Pandemic” vaccinations.

Nor does it include travel vaccines like Yellow Fever (which General Stubblebine and I routinely refuse, by the way).

Your response is probably, “What are they trying to do? Kill us?” Well, that’s probably not a bad guess.

President Bush has proposed military quarantines of whole sections of the population re: Avian flu or other pandemic. Oct. 2007 executive order from President Bush that directed HHS to establish a task force to plan for potential catastrophes like a terrorist attack, pandemic influenza or a natural disaster that would ensure full use of Department of Defense resources.
Once a “pandemic” is declared and martial law follows (triggered at the drop of that deadly word by the head of Health and Human Services or the White House), refusal to accept “Pandemic vaccination” will lead to your “relocation/quarantine” by either US forces or the Canadian army (following the February 14, 2008 treaty announced by US Army North Com and the Canadian Military).
The 2006 Defense Authorization Act expanded the 1807 Insurrection Act to allow the President to declare Martial Law and send in the Military not only for insurrections, but also any “natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition,” with both “incident” or “condition” not defined nor limited.
Halliburton has built a constellation of concentration camps (sort of our very own Gulag Archipelago) across the U.S. – are these camps for infected patients, or civil libertarians and nonviolent dissidents?

Flu Shots and Alzheimer’s Disease

I do not believe there is such a thing as a “Green Vaccine”, despite its lovely ring. Even green vaccines are dangerous because they introduce antigenic materials into the body which are neither safe nor effective in preventing disease and which damage the immune system. But if you still believe vaccines are safe, effective or both, and you want to give your child a toxic brew, please, be my guest. Why doesn’t that right extend on the other direction?

Yesterday celebrities, parents, doctors and others marched to “Green Vaccines” in Washington and “get unnecessary toxins out of vaccines”. Does that mean that there are, in fact, “necessary” toxins in vaccines?
It supposes that safe vaccines without, for example, mercury, formaldehyde, aluminum hydroxide, monosodium glutamate, aspartame, cancer-causing viruses, human fetal tissues, stealth viruses and the rest of the witches’ brew can, in fact, be made. Let’s assume that they can, just for the sake of argument.
There is nothing, nothing, I repeat nothing, in the non-commercial scientific literature which confirms the hypothesis that vaccines are related to the decrease in epidemic diseases (hygiene did that) or an increase in public health. There is nothing which confirms the safety of early and multiple vaccine doses. Nothing, although there is, of course, a vast amount of propaganda and junk science to assert it, but nothing to prove it.

My mother recently died of Alzheimer’s Disease. She took her flu shots regularly because her doctor urged her to. Is my mother dead, after years of sorrow for herself and her family, because of her obedience to her mis-informed doctor?

Consider this:

“According to Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world’s leading immunogeneticist and 13th most quoted biologist of our times (nearly 850 papers in peer review journals):


If an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 (the years studied) his/her chances of getting Alzheimer’s Disease is 10 times higher than if he/she had one, 2 or no shots. Dr. Fudenberg said it was so and that it was due to mercury and aluminum that is in every flu shot. The gradual mercury and aluminum buildup in the brain causes cognitive dysfunction.

Flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury. One microgram is considered toxic.”

http://www.royalrife.com/flu_shots.html

Five consecutive flu shots? Children by age 4.5 have had 5 consecutive flu shots.
Will the 50% Alzheimer’s incidence in people over 80 increase to 100%? What about for people age 70 who will have had 71 consecutive flu shots?

And what about the 1 to 3 micrograms of mercury that the CDC now admits remains in all vaccines as an undisclosed “trace” contaminant? See the AgeofAutism.com web site for the email exchange with CDC on this.
The Federal Government holds that vaccine issues belong to the states and their position is “merely advisory.” New York is surrendering its responsibility to the 15 member board of the ACIP. Why? Could it be that our strong advocacy and others letting people know about the dangers of vaccination threatens to undermine the tremendous profits inherent in vaccination? Could it be that although, to quote the May 21, 2008 NY Times article, : “the U.S. currently enjoys the highest immunization rate ever; 77% of children embarking on the first day of school are completely up to date on their recommended doses and most of the remaining children are missing just a few shots.” We also enjoy the world’s highest rates of autism (currently 1 boy in 60 in New Jersey!), pediatric diabetes, neurological disorders, MS, Asthma, Pediatric cancer, etc.
“Under the New York law, both your child’s doctor and you will be required to maintain and provide burdensome documentation of the inoculated status of your child. If you lose your child’s papers? Reinnoculation.
If you doubt that, ask the parents of the 1100 kids revaccinated at gun point in Prince George’s County MD last November when the school district admitted that they had lost the kid’s records and re-immunized them anyway! And ask the parents of the other 1200 kids vaccinated that day while police with attack dogs watched – despite the fact that MD is an exemption state.

If you refuse vaccines in NY and don’t give your child the opportunity to develop autism, asthma, diabetes, neurological disorders, and all the other possible consequences of immunization, including convulsions and death, you will very likely lose your child and go to jail.

Since there is no reason at all to believe that this lucrative, and insane, mandatory vaccination requirement will stop at age 18, I believe that we can expect laws mandating adult vaccination as well.

Even if you are still among those who believe that vaccination has a place in health, and I must admit, I no longer am, there is no place for unconstitutional and deadly mandatory requirements in health. Click here

Is Your Child Chewing Their Way to Disease? The Hidden Health Dangers of Gum!

My daughter loves gum! She would chew it constantly if I let her. Some of you and many people I know are probably rolling your eyes already and saying ‘What’s wrong with her having a little piece of gum!’

Considering I spend a lot of money on organic food and supplements, I wondered what the impact was of all the gum she was chewing.

It couldn’t be that bad right? I mean on Wrigley’s website they say this in their last paragraph…

“All ingredients are extensively tested by Wrigley to make sure they are completely safe and wholesome. In addition, since chewing gum is classified as a food product, it must meet the strict standards of the United States Food and Drug Administration.”

Well, I liked the word ‘wholesome’ – sounds good right? So I looked at the brand she chewed the most the bubble gum – here are the ingredients they list on their site.

Brand Ingredients Nutrition Information

Extra Classic
Bubble Gum

Sugarfree

Sorbitol, gum base, glycerol, mannitol, natural and artificial flavors, softeners, maltitol, aspartame, acesulfame K, Red 40 Lake, BHT (to maintain freshness) sucralose, Yellow 6

Phenylketonurics: contains phenylalanine

*Percent D

So what are some of those chemicals?

*Acesulfame K
this is a common sugar substitute
Found in: pudding, chewing gum, non-dairy creamers, instant coffee mixes, tea mixes and gelatin desserts. In studies done with animals, Acesulfame K apparently produced lung tumors, breast tumors, and several forms of leukemia and chronic respiratory disease.

*Aspartame
Found in sugar substitutes and sweeteners in foods and some body products, such as shaving gel and diet sodas.
People who were affected by this chemical, often report dizziness, headaches and even seizures. Long term effects are still unknown.

*BHA – BHT
Found in canned foods and body products.
This substance is actually banned in other countries because these two preservatives are considered carcinogenic, but they still remain in U.S. manufactured foods that contain oil as they retard rancidity

So…. those ingredients don’t sound so wholesome to me!

What did this doctor have to say about gum chewing?

Why Chewing Gum Is Bad For Your Health

If you chew gum on a regular basis, please consider the following:

  1. Chewing gum causes unnecessary wear and tear of the cartilage that acts as a shock absorber in your jaw joints. Once damaged, this area can create pain and discomfort for a lifetime.
  2. You use eight different facial muscles to chew. Unnecessary chewing can create chronic tightness in two of these muscles, located close to your temples. This can put pressure on the nerves that supply this area of your head, contributing to chronic, intermittent headaches.
  3. You have six salivary glands located throughout your mouth that are stimulated to produce and release saliva whenever you chew. Producing a steady stream of saliva for chewing gum is a waste of energy and resources that could otherwise be used for essential metabolic activities.
  4. Most chewing gum is sweetened with aspartame. Short and long term use of aspartame has been closely linked with cancer, diabetes, neurological disorders, and birth defects.
  5. If your gum isn’t sweetened by aspartame, it is probably sweetened by sugar. Sugar is most likely the single greatest dietary cause of chronic health problems like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and emotional disorders.

The next time you think about chewing gum, please remember the price that your body pays for it.

Well – I suppose all of the companies selling this gum say the ingredients are not harmful – there has to be research that says so.

Then I saw this…

Analysis Shows Nearly 100% of Independent Research Finds

Problems With Aspartame

An analysis of peer reviewed medical literature using MEDLINE and other databases was conducted by Ralph G. Walton, MD, Chairman, The Center for Behavioral Medicine, Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine. Dr. Walton analyzed 164 studies which were felt to have relevance to human safety questions. Of those studies, 74 studies had aspartame industry-related sponsorship and 90 were funded without any industry money.

Of the 90 non-industry-sponsored studies, 83 (92%) identified one or more problems with aspartame. Of the 7 studies which did not find a problems, 6 of those studies were conducted by the FDA. Given that a number of FDA officials went to work for the aspartame industry immediately following approval (including the former FDA Commissioner), many consider these studies to be equivalent to industry-sponsored research.

No conflict of interest there huh?

Now I knew I wouldn’t be buying anymore regular gum. I had to find a substitute –

So, the healthiest chewing gum i could find is Spry at my local health food store. It has less ingredients and there are no chemicals listed above. It is sweetened with Xylitol which is natural as well.

What is Xylitol?

A healthy, natural sweetener

Pure xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar. It is a naturally occurring 5-carbon sugar alcohol found in many fruits and vegetables and produced in small amounts by the human body. For commercial use, it is manufactured from xylan hemicellulose sources such as Birch trees, cane bagasse and corn cobs/stalks. It is the sweetest of the polyols with the same sweetness as sugar (sucrose) but with 40% fewer calories and none of the negative tooth decay or insulin release effects of sugar.

One little piece of gum doesn’t seem like a big deal – but a few a day, packs a week, cases a year – that adds up to too much to ignore!

To Your Health!
