Dr. Robin Falkov comes on and accounts for all matters health – everything from Health Freedom Rights to practical home remedy tips. Some of the questions discussed are: Nazi connections to Big Pharma? What is Codex Alimentarius? Health Cartels have sinister agenda beyond ruthless profits? Is GMO taking over? What health care system works? What’s the problem with Vaccines? Are there homeopathic Vaccines? The status of Complementary Medicine? What is healthy nutrition? What food substances to avoid? Why is local cultivation important? And many more issues big & small, like what sugar substitutes are safe & sound…

Aspartame – sold under the brand names NutraSweet, Sugar Twin and Equal – is one of the most popular artificial sweeteners available on the market. It is used as a low-calorie sugar substitute in more than 6,000 processed products worldwide, especially in diet or sugar-free foods and beverages.
While it remains the most used artificial sweetener, it has also faced controversy in recent years. As more and more research links aspartame to severe health effects, increasing numbers of people are becoming aware of this hidden poison and are trying to avoid it at all costs. That’s why Pepsi proactively removed it from their diet soda last year.
Complaints of various health issues have been filed since aspartame first appeared on the market in the 1980s. As reported by The Nutritional Source, aspartame is one of the most exhaustively studied chemicals in the human food supply, with more than 200 studies completed.
Dr. Betty Martini, the founder of the worldwide volunteer force Mission Possible World Health International, which is committed to removing aspartame from our food, notes that aspartame has brought more complaints to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) than any other additive; it is responsible for 75 percent of such complaints.
Over the years, more than 90 side effects – including vision loss, seizures, brain tumors, cancer and mild rashes – have been associated with regular consumption of aspartame. Furthermore, it can mimic the symptoms of diseases such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, lupus, ADD, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue and depression.
When aspartame is processed by the body it breaks down into phenylalanine (50 percent), aspartic acid (40 percent) and methanol (or wood alcohol, 10 percent).
We have all heard the stories about alcoholics ending up blind or dead after drinking methanol during Prohibition. Aspartame consists of 10 percent methanol which our body further breaks down into formaldehyde and formic acid. These compounds accumulate in the retina of the eye and destroy the optic nerve, causing vision loss and blindness.
Furthermore, methanol poisoning may cause central nervous system depression, and can lead to metabolic acidosis and coma.
As reported by Dr. Martini, in 1986 the Community Nutrition Institute petitioned the FDA to ban aspartame because so many people had gone blind and had seizures. Despite the apparent link, the FDA, backed up by the drug and chemical industry, refused to take aspartame out of production.
Excessive amounts of phenylalanine block the transport of essential amino acids to the brain, which contributes to reduced levels of dopamine and serotonin. While our brains need this amino acid, too much of it has been linked to emotional and behavioral disorders and brain damage.
Furthermore, too much aspartic acid, another amino acid present in aspartame, can cause over-stimulation and death of brain cells. It leaks too much calcium into the cells and triggers excessive amounts of free radicals, which may damage and kill neurons.
G.D. Searle, the company behind the discovery of aspartame, was warned as early as 1971 that excess amounts of aspartic acid caused holes in the brain of mice and posed a serious threat to human health, yet nobody found it necessary to remove aspartame from the shelves.
Before its approval, aspartame had been rejected multiple times over fears of brain tumors and cancer, the Huffington Post reported. In 1996, Dr. John Olney, who founded the field of neuroscience called excitotoxicity, and attorney James Turner, attempted to stop the approval of aspartame.
Even the FDA’s own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress that aspartame could cause brain tumors and brain cancer, and that approving it would violate the Delaney Amendment, which forbids putting anything in food known to cause cancer.
Sadly enough, Donald Rumsfeld – who was CEO of G.D. Searle and part of Reagan’s transition team – and Monsanto joined forces. In 1985, Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle, the company that held the patent to aspartame. They managed to pull a few strings and played a substantial role in the approval of aspartame by the FDA.

Aspartame is a substance that has been relentlessly scrutinized by the natural health community, and yet also receives an astonishing amount of praise from many mainstream medical practitioners. It’s heralded as a safe alternative to sugar – and some big businesses have even tried to pretend that their aspartame-loaded diet beverages could even be better than water. Sugar-free sweets, beverages and baked goods make it an easy concept for the majority to hold on to; it allows them to have what they want, guilt-free.
Unfortunately, the history of how aspartame came to be a societal mainstay is not a sweet one. Before becoming legal, aspartame was banned twice by the FDA. According to The Daily Health Post, in 1977, aspartame triggered the first criminal investigation of a manufacturer to ever be launched by the agency. The FDA went on to ban aspartame in 1980, after having three separate independent scientists study the sweetener.
Why? Because they found that there was a strong risk for aspartame to cause brain tumors. And of course, aspartame consumption is linked to a whole host of other health issues. According to New Zealand’s Safe Food Campaign, aspartame is linked to more health problems than MSG – a substance that is widely regarded as unhealthy and toxic.
Emails belonging to John Podesta that were released by WikiLeaks, didn’t just provide a broader view of establishment corruption; they also uncovered concerns about NutraSweet, which is primarily comprised of aspartame. A person identified as Wendy Abrams forwarded an email chain about NutraSweet to Podesta in 2015. Abrams had been emailing a man identified as Don Kennedy, and expressed her concern about the addition of aspartame to chocolate milk used in school lunches. Chocolate milk is consumed at a ratio of 4 to 1, compared to plain white milk. Abrams writes, “The current proposal from the Dairy lobby is to put NutraSweet in the chocolate milk we serve to school children.” She also expresses her belief that this effort needs to be brought to a grinding halt.
In another email with Kennedy, Abrams writes about her own negative experiences with aspartame. She said that in college, she drank so many beverages sweetened with NutraSweet that she developed exercise-induced asthma and headaches. Abrams also made note of concerning information she had acquired.
“I also have a friend who worked for the researchers at University of Chicago (which has a top rated neurology dept) and the doctors there said when they gave nutrasweet to lab mice, it literally blew holes in their brains. They said they will tell a pregnant woman to drink any amount of alcohol before touching a sip of nutrasweet, it is that bad.”
Kennedy responds by noting that he too has had great concerns over artificial sweeteners, and by divulging some concerning details about how aspartame finally came to be legalized. He explains that the day after Ronald Reagan’s inauguration, January 21, 1981, Searle – the original developer of aspartame – applied to the FDA for approval to use aspartame in food sweetener for a second time. Arthur Hayes Hull, Jr., Reagan’s newly appointed FDA commissioner, proceeded to appoint a 5-person scientific commission to review the board of inquiry’s decision.
When it became clear that the panel was going to uphold the ban with a 3–2 decision, Hull placed a sixth member on the commission so the vote would become deadlocked. Then Hull personally broke the tie in aspartame’s favor. Kennedy writes, “Hull later left the FDA under allegations of impropriety, served briefly as Provost at New York Medical College, and then took a position with Burston-Marsteller, the chief public relations firm for both Monsanto and GD Searle. Since that time he has never spoken publicly about aspartame.”
Does that seem a little suspicious to you? What is perhaps more upsetting is that people are aware this substance was approved under false pretenses, and yet no one has done anything to end its reign in American food.
It’s also worth noting that Monsanto acquired the patent on aspartame during the mid-80s. Perhaps that has something to do with it?

I’ve just released a hard-hitting mini-documentary that explains how DEET insecticide is one part of a binary chemical weapon that targets your brain for destruction.
The other part of that chemical weapon is found in carbamate pesticides which inundate the non-organic food supply. Once you combine these two, you get hypertoxicity to brain cells via “acetylcholesterase inhibitor chemicals,” leading to mass confusion, fear, memory loss and an inability to think for yourself.

What would happen if everyone stopped funding crooked corporations that throw the population under the bus tomorrow?
What would happen if people took responsibility for their health, rather than hand off that responsibility to the Medical establishment?
What would happen if individuals begun vetting all the information from every single source, rather than take everything at face value?
What would happen if individuals quit supporting corrupt politicians?
What would happen if we quit eating unsafe genetically modified foods, that have never been proven to be safe? Why do you think they want to keep you from knowing what foods are GMOs? If genetically modified foods were safe, why aren’t they labeled? Ever ruminate on that?
What would happen if we just quit giving the system our consent [silence is consent], for every illegal, inhumane and brutal action carried out on the populace?
What would happen if people quit drinking fluoridated water that causes neurological issues and countless others, that just happens to make it easier for people to be controlled, which was why the Russians and Nazis used it? [For More Info Click Here]
What would happen if people asked what toxic substances were in their food, besides genetically modified foods?
What would happen if people knew that when a label says it’s natural, it’s anything but? [If you want something that is real you need to look for Organic/Non-GMO labels on food packages, not “natural”]
What would happen if people quit running for the cure and people began searching for the cause? Better yet, what would happen if people took a look at Dr. Burzynski’s work? [Watch His Documentary Here] Or have you seen the documentary on Forbidden Cures? [You Can Watch It Here]
What would happen if individuals knew preventable medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the United States? Would they still trust the medical system? [That doesn’t count the many more [1.5 Million a year, every year, at last estimate] that end up getting run over by Big Medica who don’t get killed by these mistakes.]
What would happen if people knew that key vaccine studies to prove vaccines are safe are funded almost entirely by Big Pharma? That’s called conflict of interest.
What would happen if people knew the CDC covers up vaccine issues, as one of their very own scientists admitted, but which the mainstream media won’t touch?
What would happen if people knew there’s a vaccination reaction system that has paid out billions even though vaccinations are claimed to be ‘safe’?
What would happen if we quit allowing ourselves to be divided and began standing together?
What would happen if people quit taking excuses for answers from those at the top, and began finding – or better yet, creating! – solutions themselves?
What would happen if individuals decided a better world starts with them?
The point of asking those questions is to show that we, whether we like it or not, are the largest component of the system.
If we merely begun acting on everything that is in our best interest, truly our best interest and not in the interest of the corrupt corporations/politicians then everything would begin to change.
Examples of what happens when individuals begin acting in their best interest follow:
Please note, those are merely a handful of the stories available, and that’s only the change taking place regarding people wanting real food.
What would happen if…individuals realized they are the solutions to their very problems, and the time to act is now?

A year ago PepsiCo announced that it would be removing the controversial sweetener aspartame from its Diet Pepsi products, claiming that was the No. 1 request from customers. But now the company says it is putting the sweetener back in Diet Pepsi, allegedly because that’s what consumers want.
As reported by The Associated Press, aspartame-laced Diet Pepsi will be back on U.S. shelves soon after sales of the soft drink plummeted following the company’s reformulation. As AP noted further:
PepsiCo says it will offer “Diet Pepsi Classic Sweetener Blend” made with aspartame starting in September, in 12-ounce cans, 2-liter bottles and 20-ounce bottles. The move is intended to appease fans who don’t like the taste of the reformulated drink, which is made with the artificial sweetener sucralose.
PepsiCo Inc. did say, however, that the Diet Pepsi formula with sucralose – more commonly known by its brand name, Splenda – would remain the primary diet choice. Those cans will be silver, while “classic” Diet Pepsi with aspartame will come in a light blue can.
PepsiCo said because of the complaints it decided to switch formulas and remove the aspartame but the plan backfired, the company claims: Sales for Diet Pepsi fell 10.6 percent, according to an industry tracking trade magazine, Beverage Digest.
Some years ago Coca Cola tested ads defending aspartame and its safety. The company has also seen a decline in sales over the past year of 5.7 percent.
Part of the sales slump is that a) despite what these companies are hearing, more Americans are avoiding aspartame – and sugary soda altogether – because they are opting for healthier choices. In fact, sales have been slumping for several years now. We reported in March 2012 that, finally, the trend was going the right way and an increasing number of Americans were shunning sugary soft drinks, as indicated by falling sales.
We noted further that in all actuality, soda sales had already been dropping off for a number of years. But sales figures took a very dramatic hit in 2011 because millions more consumers were making smarter choices and putting healthier drinks in their bodies.
Aspartame is converted by the body into a cancer-causing agent, formaldehyde:
Composed of three unique compounds, aspartame is a synergistically toxic chemical, meaning the sum of its individual parts is exponentially more toxic than each one by itself. And yet even in isolation, the three main constituents found in aspartame — aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol — are idiosyncratically toxic in their own right.
It can also cause obesity – even as a ‘diet’ substance – and metabolic syndrome:
Fake sweeteners, we noted, are generally seen as better alternatives to real sugar. But that is bogus as well. In fact, as the science becomes better known, more people are discovering that even sugar alternatives are responsible for weight gain and metabolic disorders like diabetes, when excessive amounts of “diet” sodas are drank.
In addition, many studies have indicated that chemical sweeteners like aspartame may even be more harmful that regular sugar because they lead to weight gain that is not tied to the intake of calories.
Aspartame was originally approved even though there was evidence that it was toxic:
Though it may be hard for you to believe, aspartame was not initially developed as an artificial sweetener. In fact, like other substances on the market, it was discovered by accident by scientists who were actually trying to develop an ulcer medication for G.D. Searle and Company (a Big Pharma absorbed by Monsanto in 1985).
After scientists found that the chemical was sweet, the company formally presented it to the Food and Drug Administration and it was eventually approved for commercial use.
The stuff is made from the feces of genetically modified E. coli bacteria:
Similar to the fermentation process, E. coli are modified with special genes that cause them to produce unnaturally high levels of a special enzyme that, as a byproduct, produces the phenylalanine needed for aspartame production.
It is also capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, which could lead to permanent brain damage.
And now PepsiCo is putting it back into one of its products because the company believes that – and not overall slumping soda sales – is the reason why less of it is flying off store shelves.

From cradle to grave, Americans suffer from “mysterious” health problems that medical doctors just can’t seem to solve, not with medications, surgery or chemotherapy. Where oh where could all of these problems come from – ones that other countries barely have, or don’t have at all?
Think about it: Why would anyone’s body completely freak out just because you open a jar of peanut butter on the other side of the room? Why would a baby get a headache so severe that it causes brain damage? How did the statistics of autism go from 1 in 10,000 boys to 1 in 68, just since the late 1990s, and could it have anything to do with injecting the most toxic non-radioactive chemical on planet earth – an acute neurotoxin called mercury – into the muscle tissue of children over, and over, and over, and up to 30 times before they reach the age of three?
People worry so much about infectious diseases, but since the advent of decent plumbing and hospital hygiene in the mid-1900s, that hasn’t been a problem. Maybe everybody should be much more concerned about preventing preventable diseases, that shouldn’t be labeled diseases at all, since they’re not really contagious, in the literal sense of the word. The epidemic-style “diseases” of modern America are more or less disorders – disorders of the cells, malfunctions of cleansing organs, chronic inflammation, unnatural, conjured-up immune reactions, severely disrupted endocrine systems, infected lymphatic fluids, and profoundly disturbed central nervous systems. These malfunctions are not normal. The majority of these are not inherited from parents. These are health crises that develop after birth, and often worsen within a handful of years to the extent that they become permanent issues, requiring extensive, expensive, long-term care.
Since WWII, American food, medicine and personal care products have become heavily contaminated with toxins, and not by accident. “Big Food” and “Big Pharma” have grown to monopolize the industries that make Americans sick and dysfunctional, and they target the children, knowing that the parents will do anything (including spending every dime they have) to try to fix the problems and give their kids a normal life, or at least as close to normal as their money will provide. And there are only two types of medical doctors in the USA: There are the ones who know nothing about toxins in food and medicine, and who prescribe chemical quack medicines that address only the symptoms of preventable disorders, and then there are the medical doctors who know about toxins in food, medicine and personal care products, but prescribe chemical quack medicines anyway.
So, it’s not conspiracy theory when you eat a food product loaded with monosodium glutamate (MSG) and get a migraine headache within an hour that lasts for hours, leaving you completely non-functional, now is it? So then realize this, it’s also not guess work to figure out that most hyperactive, “ADHD” children eat toxic food dyes and can’t sit still at school afterwards. It’s also not some wild “hypothesis” that vaccines are made with peanut oil, which is not listed as an ingredient, because the so-called “trace amounts” aren’t enough to “count” according to the CDC. So now, friends, it’s time to closely examine the top 10 toxins in food and medicine that cause the majority of U.S. allergies, diseases and disorders.
#1. Mercury in vaccines causes autism.
#2. Peanut oil used to brew vaccines causes severe peanut allergies in developing children.
#3. Aspartame in food, beverages, gum, candy and medicine causes anxiety, seizures and depression – it’s a hidden schedule II narcotic!
#4. Mono sodium glutamate (MSG) in food and vaccines causes migraine headaches and brain damage in infants.
#5. Consuming unfermented soy regularly, whether organic or not (often found in baby formula), causes severe fluctuations in estrogen levels, leading to cancer tumors.
#6. Aluminum in antacids and vaccines causes Alzheimer’s and dementia.
#7. Sodium fluoride in tap water causes lowered IQ, cancer and brittle bones.
#8. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is the leading cause of diabetes worldwide.
#9. Consuming canola regularly, whether organic or not, destroys the protective coating surrounding your nerves, and leads to the degeneration of the heart, kidneys, thyroid gland and adrenals.
#10. Nearly all conventional food dyes are synthetic, petroleum-based and cause allergies, hyperactivity in children, and eventually, cancer.
There are many foods and superfoods that help the human body detoxify from heavy metal toxin overload, and they include, but are not limited to: chia seeds, cilantro, spirulina and chlorella. There are many foods that build natural immunity to infectious diseases, and they include, but are not limited to: turmeric, aloe, oil of oregano, vitamin D3, vitamin C, garlic, ginger and organic and raw cruciferous vegetables. There are food colorants that come from natural foods, like berries. There are phenomenal water filtration systems for your home, including the Big Berkey. There are healthy oil choices like coconut oil and hemp seed oil, that prevent Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, respectively. There are healthy forms of salt, like actual sea salt, that’s full of the minerals your body wants most.
Remember, just because your government allows 70,000 toxic agents in food, and even more in medicine and personal care products, doesn’t mean you have to be naive and consume them, and then go to an MD for more punishment. Get smart; eat organic. Buy from local farmers, and grow your own healthy food!
For those seeking additional information into two of the most harmful toxins we face, out of the many listed below, please read:

Right now in Venezuela, if you don’t support the socialist government, you don’t eat. The tyrannical government is buying up nearly all the food there and is redistributing rations only to families that show their support for the ruling political party. In America, most people believe that the mass media, including television and newspapers, print the truth about politics, sports, food and medicine, when actually nearly every report and every advertisement is scripted based on corporations that manufacture toxic food, medicine and personal care products.
In fact, U.S. regulatory agencies, including the FDA, EPA and USDA, are run by Monsanto and other chemical giants that breed genetically modified organisms, a.k.a. pesticide-laden foods, that cause cancer, dementia and memory loss. Even the CDC is run by pharma insiders from Merck, Pfizer and GSK (Glaxo-Smith-Kline), who cover up vaccine violence and the chemical warfare that’s disguised as Western Medicine. Over 70,000 chemical food agents have already been approved by the FDA, and if you don’t believe it, that’s because you consume them and are experiencing severe brain fog right now. Will you be voting for Hillary, “Bride-of-Frankenfood” Clinton, in November? That would be a vote for more unlabeled, dementia-causing food, since she and Obama are both “in bed” with Monsanto, the devil of GMO.
Chemical prescription medicine is not the answer to the chronic ills of consuming junk science food, although 200 million Americans wish and think it could be. People burn the candle at both ends, and their lives are shortened and filled with self-inflicted health misery. It’s sad but so true. People eat their way right into cancer and diabetes, and they don’t believe that 90 percent or more of the food found on grocery and supermarket shelves directly causes those preventable “diseases.”
What’s worse is that while those diseases and cell disorders are “brewing” in their bodies, their brains are suffering, being weakened, clogged and fogged, and they simply cannot figure out what’s happening, as their medical doctors lie to them, omitting toxic food as a cause and culprit, all while prescribing more toxins in the form of pills, vaccines, flu shots and personal care products like toxic ointments, lotions and so on.
So, without further ado, here are the top 10 ways food is being used right now as a chemical delivery system to poison the human brain for profit and political manipulation.
#1. Genetic modification or “genetic engineering” of food is a fancy, technical term for the insertion of pesticide genes from insects and foreign organisms into staple crops most Americans consume without giving a second thought to what’s really happening in their bodies – the continued creation of pesticides inside the gut, which contributes to a crippled immune system and dementia.
#2. Intentionally scripted misinformation is posted on several websites to mislead people who seek to find out what’s really in their food. Websites like GMOAnswers.com, Council for Biotechnology Information, and Genetic Literacy Project, are three of the top propaganda websites that promote poisonous food as “science-based” and beneficial for humanity. Nearly every word printed and published by these shills is a lie, and intended to poison the brains of those who seek valid food information.
#3. Junk science is the lab creation of “excitotoxins” – which are food chemicals designed to trick the taste buds and the brain into believing the body is consuming real food, with real flavoring, even though these food drugs are highly addictive and cause chronic damage to the central nervous system and brain cells. The most popular excitotoxins include monosodium glutamate (MSG) and aspartame, a.k.a. “sweet misery.”
#4. Fast food, like McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Arby’s, Taco Bell and Hardee’s, is mainly comprised of modified foods full of synthetic preservatives and artificial flavorings that poison the human brain. From GMOs and hydrogenated oils to high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) to phosphoric acid (in soda), the more fast food one consumes the dumber one gets. It’s a direct correlation and an insidious, planned “food science” that makes corporations billions of dollars yearly, on the food end and on the chronic sick care end, where those intoxicated people go for relief from “FFD” (fast food disease).
#5. Artificial sweeteners, namely aspartame, sorbitol, sucralose, saccharin and acesulfame potassium, contribute to irritable bowels and central nervous system disorders. Aspartame causes anxiety and depression, robbing humans of the ability to think positively about life and how to properly live it. Period!
#6. Nearly all foods labeled “diet,” “light” and “zero,” are loaded with chemicals that make you fat, nervous, anxious and depressed. Want to lose weight and boost positive mental health? Eat organic produce and drink spring water!
#7. Canola oil, even organic, is really rapeseed oil, where the poisonous acid has been diluted down to meet FDA guidelines. This is poison that breaks down and strangulates mitochondria (brain cells) and fuels neurodegeneration and brain cell death.
#8. More than 80 percent of U.S. (municipal) tap water is infested with pesticides and toxic herbicides, namely sodium fluoride and glyphosate. These poisons contribute to IQ reduction, dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
#9. Children’s candy, gum and over-the-counter medications (although that’s not really food) are loaded with toxic, petroleum-based food dyes that cause ADD, ADHD, cancer and other central nervous system disorders and brain malfunctions.
#10. Last, but certainly not least, we have school food, and hospital cafeteria and room-delivered food. Nary are any food nutrients ever found in this toxic slop that’s fed to our children, and the already sick and wounded folks needing care. What a brain-damaging, crying shame.

When will the government of the United States of America ever actually help Americans get healthy, and duly inform consumers about all food ingredients by utilizing honest food labels instead of using trickery and deception? Every year, the FDA and the USDA approve more and more food toxins, while covering up the health detriment they cause, all while leading people down a dark corridor of poor health.
Does it really matter if you “count calories” if all those calories are empty ones, devoid of all nutrition? Will it be helpful to limit or eliminate your “fat” intake, if you only limit or eliminate all the good fats – the kind your body needs to function properly? Did your MD bother to educate you about the difference between good fats and molecularly-altered “bad” fats? Labels were first focused on how much fat you eat, but since the FDA doesn’t educate anyone on bad fat versus good fat, it never mattered.
What if you get excited about some new labels on food because you’re supposed to watch your cholesterol, only to find out that you need cholesterol and your medical doctor and the labels steered you completely wrong? And then there’s sugar – the sugar that comes from genetically modified corn, highly concentrated (HFCS) which contains bug-killer and weed-killer that leads directly to cancer and diabetes. What difference does it really make if you “moderate” your poison intake? It’s still poison. Will you brag to your friends that you’re regulating and “reducing” your own poison intake because some new food labels are helping you?
The Associated Press recently published this new food label update: BigStory.AP.org
The FDA is actually announcing that serving sizes will be “less misleading.” How about not misleading at all? What if someone told you they would be less abusive to you – would you be excited about that? The size of the “calories” number will be much bigger and bolder. Now we are to “count calories” more easily, as if it matters whether you eat the whole can of toxic chili or half, or whether you eat six donuts or four, or you chomp down half the sack of hydrogenated-GM-oil-soaked chips or the whole bag.
Labels will give a new “percent daily value” for sugars, letting you know how much sugar is recommended for your “daily intake.” This is supposed to influence food manufacturers to put in less sugar at the factory. Does that mean they will simply insert more of those deadly chemical sweeteners in order to compensate for America’s sweet tooth, like aspartame, sucralose, sorbitol, saccharine and acesulfame potassium?
Basically each whole package of food will be a serving, so obese people feel less obese, and diabetics may feel less diabetic. No more guilt for eating that party-size bag of chips. That’s just one serving! Wait, you ate a whole box of cookies and drank a half-gallon of conventional milk? No problem. That was just a single serving.
The FDA is saying that, by law, serving sizes should be based on actual consumption habits and not ideal consumption, and since more than a third of Americans are obese, and half of the rest are overweight, that “Big Gulp” at 7/11 will become one serving. Are two double cheeseburgers and some super-sized fries just one helping? What’s next, a two-liter bottle of diet soda becoming one serving? Hey, look, no calories!
