What we need are a few changes in schools. Not just public schools, but private, charter & encouragement to home and charter school students. The rates of neurological disorders that can be officially linked to the broad introduction of Aspartame into the United States & Canadian markets in MCMLXXXIII through brands such as Nutrasweet & SugarTwin can not be disputed in any way or fashion.
Therefore I propose that an immediate ban be issued on all artificial sweeteners in all schools Provincewide. This would pre-school through post-secondary institutions. I propose that only the sweetener Stevia be allowed as it comes naturally from the leaves of a Stevia Plant & not through artificial means or configuration. Actually, whats ironic is its sweeter in taste & healthier for you. The only other option allowed should be real, unadulterated sugar.
Getting rid of all artificial sweetener packets in cafeterias, student & teacher lounges & areas where special events with food & beverages are being served will be beneficial to the health of all Albertans. We also need to get rid of aspartame in the foodstuffs offered in all of these schools as completely as possible. This should be done immediately & in conjunction with Minister Ron Liepert &/or his soon to be successor in the Ministry of Health.
We as a Province are destroying our bodies and Health Canada & the Food & Drug Administration are literally being bought off to allow aspartame to stay on the market. I bet you there would be less cases of say diabetes if these were the only two sweetening choices on the market. Of course you cannot stop folks from buying these items in stores, thats freedom of choice. But the brains & bodies of kids should have a chance to grow & be nurtured into long & healthy lives.
If you do not believe there are consequences David, then watch the following video link:
The time to act is now David. Not when the children start getting sick for no reason. Lets fight this poison all the way!
Always A Gentleman,
