They are counting on us to be passive, ignorant and trusting. The food industry doesn't care either...there is a DEMAND for great tasting "diet" foods and they will supply that demand, no matter what the cost to you and me.
I encourage you to watch the video to the end and empower yourself with INFORMATION that will allow you to make EDUCATED choices about what goes into your body and your children's bodies. We wouldn't take our children (or ourselves) anywhere in our vehicle without safely buckling them in...and yet we may be poisoning them unknowingly with artificial sweeteners. Why? Because we think sugar is bad for them??? Yes we know that excessive sugar consumption is not healthy...but even small amounts of sweeteners are bad for us...and in some people even lethal! Why are we jumping out of the frying pan and right into the fire?
The more reading and research I do, the more disheartened (ok, I'll be honest--pissed off) I become with the Food & Drug Industry. We are being manipulated and lied to and as our society gets sicker...those unscrupulous criminals get richer. Yes, it pisses me off that they have knowingly been poisoning us for 30+ years and they don't really seem to give a damn. It should make us all mad as hell.
The time for chronic apathy is over. There is no greater power than unified consumerism. WE DRIVE THE MARKET. If there is no profit to be made, the product disappears. Period.
So what can we do? Refrain from buying processed food whenever possible; especially anything with artificial, cancer-causing chemicals and sweeteners.
