Dear Valued Client,

On the heels of renowned nutrition researchers Eaton and Cordain stating that the future of dietary public health policy should be based upon the paradigm of our earliest ancestors, we see further proof of this in the study below. As I have witnessed so many times, discovering and removing offending, incompatible foods that are contraindicated with our genetic makeup, more often than not, leads to an optimally healthy host.
Have a happy, healthy day. Bonnie

Food's Toxic Effect, Part II
 In 2007, Food's Toxic Effect detailed a study of how food's effect on the digestive system went beyond just food allergy. This is when many of you became familiar with the term food intolerance.

While we have worked with food intolerance testing and menus successfully in a clinical setting for over twenty years, the impetus for conventional medicine in the United States to follow suit has been slow going.

Food's Toxic Effect Part II analyzes a recent American College of Nutrition study showing that juvenile patients with Crohn's disease went into remission without medication within two months when put on a food exclusion plan with dietary supplements.

This study should leave little doubt that removing intolerant foods, while infusing with well-tolerated foods and nutrients, not only helps, but heals.

Aspartame Rebranded
Leading aspartame producer Ajinomoto is launching a new initiative that will brand the sweetener aspartame as AminoSweet. Ajinomoto believes that "the time is right to remind the industry that aspartame tastes just like sugar, and that it's made from amino acids - the building blocks of protein that are abundant in our diet.The name AminoSweet is appealing and memorable. It reflects that AminoSweet comes from the same amino acids that are abundant in the food we eat every day."

Bonnie - surprised? The reason for rebranding is simple. Aspartame has such a horrible reputation that they must distance themselves from the name. Ajinomoto is banking on the fact that consumers are so clueless that we can be duped into thinking this is a new product.

Ajinomoto better be very careful about how they market AminoSweet. If they try link it to anything natural, consumers and the Federal Trade Commission will be all over them.

Let me be perfectly clear. While aspartame may be derived from amino acids, there is nothing natural about it. Aspartame is a synthetic chemical that can cause debilitating side effects, as stated in this eNewsletter.

Please forward to anybody you wish to educate about this "wolf is sheep's clothing." For more info about the history of aspartame, please watch the fascinating, sobering documentary Sweet Misery.
