New Mexico Bill Could Ban The Use of This Toxic Sweetener

An Albuquerque, N.M. senator has put the wheels in motion to pass a bill that would ban foods containing aspartame from being sold in the state by July.

Aspartame is an artificial sweetener or “fake sugar” as I like to call it that has been used by many all over the world as a substitute for sugar. People on an individual level use products with aspartame to sweeten their drinks while big companies use it for products like diet soda.

Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino, D-Albuquerque is the man sponsoring the ban. “It’s going to be an uphill battle.” he said.

If passed, the bill will ban any products that contain aspartame from being sold in, manufactured in or delivered to New Mexico until it can be proven by manufacturers that it is not a carcinogen. “Fake sugars” such as Equal and NutraSweet will also be included in the ban.

It’s nice to wake up and hear some positive news about drastic measures that some people are taking to actually benefit the lives of other people rather than to fatten their wallets.

Too many times we hear about people, corporations & organizations taking action that involves risking people’s health & lives to make money. In this case, the state of New Mexico is truly concerned about the lives of it’s residents. For that, they should be applauded.

The problem that raises a little concern is whether the state has the authority to override both the federal Food and Drug Administration, and laws on interstate commerce. For this reason, the bill has been delayed from being proposed earlier.

The state’s Environmental Improvement Board is now calling on the state attorney general for some answers.

Folks, let’s hope this bill actually gets passed. People need to realize that by putting this poison in their bodies, they are literally selling their health to a company concerned only with profits.

I highly suggest that you avoid “diet” sodas at all costs and instead look for products that contain Stevia, which is a healthy and natural alternative to this toxic sweetener.

I consume quite a bit of ORBIT Chewing Gum. How safe is this? And are there any harmful sweeteners in that product?

Hi Annemarie,

Thanks for participating in my blog.

ORBIT chewing gum does IN FACT contain the toxic chemical aspartame as well as other artificial ingredients. Therefore, I suggest you stop chewing this type of gum and switch to a healthy chewing gum instead.

Here’s the gum you should be chewing:

Spry gum contains all-natural Xylitol, which is natural sweetener. As always, I have no financial ties to this company.

Best of health,

Frank Mangano

If he watches Dr Mercola’s video, Sweet Misery, he will have all the evidence he needs. To order the tape, go to You can also read his articles, type in Aspertame in his search window. Aspertame was developed as a pesticide. It makes a good ant killer. Also check out Sucrolose. (Splenda), vaccines, and see they are doing to the babies, Flu shots and read why I quit getting flu shots. Then GMO foods, and see what Monsanto is doing to you.

Thanks so much for the information about the gum. I have been trying to locate a gum that does not contain aspartame for a long time. Every store I go to I check at the register and do not see any. Now I know I have to go to a health food store to buy Spry.

I applaud Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino, D-Albuquerque for bringing up this bill. Ever since I learned about the harmful effects of aspartame, splenda (aka sucralose) and other artificial sweetners, I have been on a quest to avoid them. From my research, I have learned it is an excitotin which accumulates in your body. It literally stimulates neurons to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees. The brain depends on a delicate balance of excitatory and inhibitory systems. When their concentrations rise above a critical level, however, they can become deadly toxins to the neurons and nerve cells. The damage is cumulative and often not noted for several years. Glutamate, aspartame and glycine are three amino acids the brain uses unaltered. So another food additive to avoid is MSG. I wish the FDA would ban that one too. It is found in so many foods and goes by so many different names. One is only sure of avoidance by buying organic foods.

The only thing organizations that use these food additives care about is making money–it certainly is not about the health of people.

Did you know Donald Rumsfeld was one of the biggest pushers to get aspartame approved through the FDA. For what? Big business and money.

I was very skeptical about using Stevia. I refuse to use artificial sweeteners and was searching for a healthier, natural alternative to sugar. I have researched Stevia and apparently Stevia-based sweeteners have been used in Japan since the 1970s – ever since that country banned artificial sweeteners. To this date, after being used by tens of millions of people for more than 40 years, there has not been a single consumer complaint about Stevia.

I have been using the Sweetleaf brand for several months now and absolutely love it! You can now purchase it at any Whole Foods store.

SweetLeaf can be used in hot drinks, cold drinks, is great on cereal, brings out the delicious flavors in fruits, can be used in cooking and baking, makes great-tasting desserts and is incredible in smoothies and blended drinks.
