What’s not to like?
They ruin female sexual response and induce male sexual dysfunction… and we just thought our partners were repugnant! (I’m joking, of course!)
So, What are we talking about here?
NutraSweet & Aspartame
NutraSweet & Aspartame are the two main offenders here… and we all know what they are… because they are EVERYWHERE!
But, there are others, of course… like Splenda… and probably a few more… but, I’ve spent my whole life giving these things a really wide birth, so I can’t think of any more names at the moment… If you can, please add them in the comments!
Have We Entered Some Kind Of Dystopian Nightmare?
I recently saw the following image on Facebook. And, in many respects I believe it’s true.
Margaret Atwood has gone public with the fact that every element of The Handmaids Tale has actually happened somewhere on planet earth… and 1984 is looking more and more like reality in the way in which technology is being used.
But, when you start seeing these two outcomes from the same product, (i.e. sweeteners ruin female sexual response and induce male sexual dysfunction), you’ve got to start wondering whether the big story here on earth is that eugenics really didn’t die with Hitler.
The Endocrine System & The Sugar Tax
Aspartame is practically in every product since they introduced a sugar tax in the UK!
Officially called the Soft Drinks Industry Levy (SDIL), the tax puts a charge of 24p on drinks containing 8g of sugar per 100ml and 18p a litre on those with 5-8g of sugar per 100ml, directly payable by manufacturers to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
So, to avoid paying the tax, soft drinks manufacturers are turning to a whole new way of killing us so that they can continue to egregiously profit from our undoing…!
Monsanto Is Implicated
Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle in 1985, which is the chemical company that previously held the patent to aspartame.
So! It’s our good old friend Monsanto who deviously orchestrated our dismal sex lives from 1985 trough until 2000… as well as all of the other evil they continue to perpetrate in the name of profit…
And that lovely Bill Gates who made the lovely Microsoft… he owns $50 million shares in them because… well… because he’s just so lovely!
*Aspartame is the active ingredient in NutraSweet
However… according to Monsanto…
Monsanto has not produced or sold aspartame for more than a decade. In 2000, we sold the NutraSweet Company to J.W. Childs and sold Equal to Merisant. Both of these companies continue to manufacture and market these products. For more information on aspartame, we recommend visiting www.aspartame.org
Nevertheless, watch this really well made documentary about Monsanto and weep:

Keeping It Short & Sweet
I’ve been told my articles are a tad too long, (if ‘a tad’ means way, way, waaaay too much! 😉 )
So, this one is nice and short fo’ y’all! x
