The Link Between Sweeteners and Obesity

August 06, 2001

Once again, with the article "Newest Sweetener Stirs Up Old Debate" (July 9), we are still not stating the true facts on why so many people are so grotesquely overweight in this country and around the world.

Does anyone really believe that sugar alone is the cause of obesity? And that some kind of new magical sweetener will improve your health and make you thinner? No, and even the "experts say it's no answer to obesity."

Still again, because of our selfish and spoiled attitudes of always wanting it all and not caring about how it comes to be, we are still trying to get around the truth.

And the truth is (and it's really quite simple), stop eating dead animals and everything that comes from animals (milk, eggs, cheese, etc.) and I assure you, not only will you be, and feel healthier, you will quickly drop the pounds.

You might even like the way you feel mentally. Believe me, a clean conscience can do wonders.
