Healthy Cookies with Aspartame Sweetner?

Please Rate Article: 
This morning I was looking for a recipe for healthy cookies on this one cooking website. I found this one recipe that asked the baker to use 1 tablespoon, not teaspoon, but 1 tablespoon of aspartame sweetener. One tablespoon, that is a lot of chemical sweetener in its raw form. This is an oxymoron. Aspartame sweetener, do you know what this is and what it does to your brain? This sweetener is far from being healthy and should not be consumed, ever. If you want to stay or get healthy, hearing that aspartame is good for you is not true.

Let me give you, my readers, some truths you need to know in order to get or stay healthy. I am not sure who the author is of this recipe, but a sugarless health cookie, with aspartame, is far from healthy.

Aspartame is also known by its popular names such as: Found on Gather. Some other "sweeteners" are Splenda, AmminoSweet, Neotame, E951. E951 is sometimes listed on food products to mask these common sweeter names or products with sugar. It is good to know your enemy and aspartame is indeed the body and minds enemy.  There are actually boxes of Aspartame, the chemical name, in grocery stores near you as well. When shopping in any grocery store, if this chemical, yes chemical, is on your grocery shelf, do not pick it up.

This chemical was "discovered" by "accident" in 1965 by James Schlatter  a chemist of G.D. Searle Company, was testing an anti-ulcer drug.Well, his accidental discovery has harmed so many lives, I am sure he is well pleased by the outcome of his "discovery". After it's discovery, it was approved for dry goods and carbonated sodas like Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi in 1981. Yes, these diet soda's, how are they really helping to lose weight, let alone make one healthy?

Now, this chemical, not real sugar, was originally approved for dry goods in 1974, but objections filed by neuroscience researcher Dr John W. Olney and Consumer attorney James Turner in August 1974 as well as investigations of G.D. Searle's research practices caused the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to put approval of aspartame on hold (December 5, 1974). In 1985, Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle and made Searle Pharmaceuticals and The NutraSweet Company separate subsidiaries. Mercola.com

Then, in 1985, Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle and made Searle Pharmaceuticals and The NutraSweet Company separate subsidiaries. This is a whole different topic I will write about to warn  you of what these companies are doing to our health and how we need to be informed to protect our health from these companies wanting to deliberately injure our person.


Aspartame is made from these three chemicals:
  • Aspartic acid
  • Phenylalanine
  • Methanol
Are these chemicals you want in your body? Do you want chemicals in your body anyway? There are chemicals in all the foods and drinks on the shelves at big name chain grocery stores. If consumers kept those grocery store shelves stocked, big name companies like:
  • Kraft brands/Crystal Light
  • 1st Step Weight loss
  • Glee Gum (I thought this was aspartame free because the packaging did not list this).
  • Coca-cola
  • PepsiCo
  • Bayer Corp.
  • Dannon Company
  • William Wrigley Jr. Company
  • ConAgra Foods
  • Wyeth, Inc.
  • The NutraSweet Company
  • Altria Corp. (parent company of Kraft Foods and Philip Morris)
  • WalMart
This means every "junk" food you like is laced or includes aspartame. I know it takes time to read every product label, but if your health is important to you, reading labels will be worth your time. It is just best to assume all diet soda's contain aspartame and it is not worth your health to keep drinking them. You are only allowed one body and it is best to keep it healthy. Now, even if you no longer drink or eat products with aspartame, this does not mean it is not doing what is was meant to do. In high school and college, I drank Diet Coke like it was water, twenty years later, I am reaping what I sowed. I will write about this in another article.

Here are some more resources I used for this article:
  1. NewsMediaExplorer
  2. UKFoodGuide
It was not until three years ago I found out about the dangers of aspartame from listening to Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith and his guests who know about aspartame. Since that time, I really have looked for ingredients without aspartame, especially sweet ingredients like organic dark chocolate chips other products from Tropical Traditions. Oh, and some more products I have began to use, and they are amazing, are from doTerra. These essential oils, et al, will not only give your body and mind a calmness, but are made with the  health of their costumers in mind.








On my next articles, I will write about what illnesses are, more likely than not, caused by ingesting aspartame, MSG, and the products for the company Monsanto who is up to no good. I advise you to do more research than what I will provide to you as there are scoffers who will give you claims of aspartame being "good for you" and not "dangerous to your health" (as they claim is a myth).
