Product Overview

Description
  • Why Splenda, NutraSweet, and the FDA May Be Hazardous to Your Health

"One of the most comprehensive and readable discussion of the dangers of manufactured artificial sweeteners in print."

Russell L. Blaylock, M.D.

Retired Neurosurgeon and Bestselling Author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills.

The Sticky Truth About Artificial Sweeteners

Do artificial sweeteners cause cancer?

Can they cause allergic reactions?

Which is worse for you, artificial sweeteners or sugar?

Is Splenda really safe?

Touted as the miracle solution for dieters with a sweet tooth, artificial sweeteners have taken over the food industry. But are they really safe? According to authors Dr. Joseph and Dr. Kendra Degen Pearsall, no.

In Sweet Deception, they tell you how and why they think artificial sweeteners may contribute to our skyrocketing rates of cancer, obesity, diabetes, and more. You'll see inside the motives of multinational corporations and the FDA as they promote these sweeteners as "safe" for consumption.

Learn how to establish a healthy diet that includes real sweeteners, and refuse to be manipulated by industries that care more about their bottom line than the health of you and your family.
