We need to take our health in our hands and not be gullible to commercials and food labels. Labels can be deceiving and there are a lot of agendas out there paying for commercials to convince us to come over to their way of thinking. A perfect example is the new commercials about there saying there is no difference between sugar and corn sugar. Notice they are not calling it corn syrup anymore? Corn syrup has a bad connotation, negative view, so they need to do some damage control, probably because corn syrup sales have decreased.
But, artificial sweeteners are not better for us than sugar. Here is just one site that has information about sweeteners. As a matter of fact, many, many folks are experiencing negative effects from artificial sweeteners. Another site provides much information about the dangers of artificial sweeteners. You can find many articles and sites with information about the negative effects.
Dr. Ann de Wees Allen, expert in the field of low glycemic index, also warns us to check out the sweeteners we are using. One of the most common sweeteners cleverly labeled is Maltodextrin, which has the highest glycemic sweetener rating used in products. Regular sugar is 87 on the scale and maltodextrin is 130. She has done much research and offers much scientific information. Her answer to the dilemma of what to use can be found here.
So as close to nature as possible and in moderation. Why is that so hard for us to accomplish?
