All I wanted to do was re-live the glory days of my youth. Those days when I still had perky breasts. Those days when I could gnaw on 4,000 calories without suffering from stomach-enlargement and/or involuntary thundering of my thighs.
One of my earliest greedy memories was opening up some Swiss Miss and pouring the entire packet of dry chocolate powder mix down my throat.
Yup. It was fun.
I bought Swiss Miss for my kids a few weeks ago. Just wanted to share the instant hot cocoa nostalgia with my gremlin children. My 8-year-old got a headache about an hour after drinking his. I didn’t think anything of it.
He drank some Swiss Miss again a few days a later. And again, he got a headache.
That’s when the boy asked me to NOT give him Swiss Miss anymore. He was smart enough to make a connection between the Swiss Miss and his headaches. So I checked the ingredients label. And wouldn’t ya know it — Swiss Miss contains sucralose.
I was shamefully foolish to assume that a product favorite from my youth should be exempt from label-checking. Swiss Miss is NOT the same stuff I grew up on. It’s now chemically laden and harmful to our bodies. My kid stopped getting headaches once he stopped drinking Swiss Miss.
What is sucralose doing to the brain that it causes headaches? If you do a quick Google search for “sucralose toxicity”, you’ll see that headaches are just the tip of the iceburg.
Sucralose is toxic. Which means, so is Swiss Miss.
If you eat or drink artificial sweeteners and think that it’s NOT causing you harm because you feel fine and don’t have any symptoms, you really need to re-think that situation. What’s really going on inside your body?
“Out of sight, out of mind” isn’t gonna cut it. It’s gonna catch up to you.
I know some of you love your diet sodas and sugar free foods that are infested with artificial sweeteners like sucralose and aspartame, but you really gotta stop eating that shit. It’s just not good for you.
