Encourage Taylor Swift to end her endorsement of aspartame-containing Diet Coke
Does Taylor Swift want to be known as a person who endorses a product that contains what Dr. Joseph Mercola calls "by far the most dangerous substance added to most foods today"?
We don't think so.
We think Ms. Swift is a good person with good intentions who is simply uninformed about the dangers of aspartame, a substance which breaks down into, among other things, formaldehyde.
We think Ms. Swift has no knowledge of the fact that aspartame accounts for 75 percent of adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA.
We think Ms. Swift has no knowledge of the fact that many aspartame reactions are very serious, and include seizures and death.
We think Ms. Swift has no knowledge of the fact that aspartame chases away the body's natural hormone, serotonin, which makes us feel full after a meal. Without serotonin to tell us when we're full, we keep eating. Thus, this "diet" chemical actually encourages us to eat more than our body needs.
Let's encourage Taylor, politely and respectfully, to end her endorsement of Diet Coke, which contains the dangerous synthetic chemical aspartame.
Please be polite in your comments.
And please consider tweeting this petition to Taylor at her official Twitter account.
In health,Jock Doubleday
