A newly published study is destined to reignite the decades old controversy about aspartame's safety, or lack thereof. Aspartame converts to formaldehyde and formic acid, which are highly toxic to the body, but the nervous system in particular.
A new, in-depth review on the synthetic sweetener sucralose (marketed as Splenda), published in the journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, is destined to overturn widely held misconceptions about the purported safety of this ubiquitous artificial sweetener.
Pushed globally as a beneficial to dieters since its approval in 1981, accumulating research indicates that aspartame may actually damage the brain and cause cancer, to name but a few of a wide range of adverse health effects consumers risk by using this 'no-calorie' sugar alternative.

It may come as a surprise to some, especially those with conventional medical training, but the default state of the body is one of ceaseless regeneration.

Lyme disease is exceedingly difficult to treat, due to its well-known shape-shifting (pleomorphic) abilities, with conventional antibiotics often failing to produce a long-term cure. Could the commonly used natural plant stevia provide a safer, and more effective means to combat this increasingly prevalent infection?
A groundbreaking new study reveals that non-caloric artificial sweeteners (NAS) drive obesity- and diabetes-related changes in both mice and humans.
