Exactly Why Artificial Sweeteners Are Terrible

Aspartame (or brand name Nutrasweet).  Joe Mercola says it’s the most dangerous substance added to foods. I might quibble with that, because mono sodium glutamate is a neurotoxin every bit as deadly. And the nitrates and nitrites in cured meats are potently carcinogenic. I’d agree that aspartame is a TOP THREE worst things, to avoid […]

Does the media control YOUR food education?

I have two employees who are now trained to travel with me on my never-ending lecture circuit. Shari is one of them. She’s my long-time friend and tennis coach, and she loves the energy at the GSG show. On our recent trip to St. Louis, she was telling me a story about her roommate, whom […]
