We have all heard about how detrimental aspartame can be for you but some people just do not want to believe it. Everyone has their opinion and that’s one thing that’s so great about having that kind of freedom. Freedom of speech and freedom to make decisions.
I personally do have a problem with all the artificial sweeteners. I ask that you just take a little time to research aspartame yourself. The more knowledge you have, the more choices you have to prevent and/or correct illnesses.
Here is an easy experiment you can try. I tried it and it worked perfectly for me. Last summer, I found a line of perfectly single filed little creatures called ants on my kitchen floor. I hate bugs or insects of any kind! I had heard how aspartame will kill fire ants and several different varieties of ants. All I knew was that I needed to get rid of them and fast.
I had nothing in the house that could be used to extinguish the uninvited guests. I remembered reading that you could use aspartame to kill ants. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money so I went to the grocery store and bought the least expensive amount of artificial sweetener I could find.
That night, before going to bed, I sprinkled a small amount in the line that my guests were crawling. I sprinkled a little where I saw them coming in and a little in a few other areas in the kitchen, just to be sure I was getting them in case they tried to outsmart me. It must have worked. Never did I see them again. I had read that aspartame contains a neurotoxin that kills the ants by interfering with their nervous system. Ants supposedly will pick up the artificial sweetener, carry it to the nest, and the aspartame gets rid of the entire colony. I am sorry for being an ant killer, but it’s no fun having them in the house. I have listed below a couple of links that can quickly help get you some reading material on aspartame. This can get you started on your research so you can become an empowered decision maker.
