“Health Food” Causing DEADLY Superbugs
It seems like you can’t turn on a TV or open a newspaper these days without seeing a story about “superbugs.”
These deadly infections are resistant to antibiotics… and they’re killing THOUSANDS of seniors a year.
Worse still? Many seniors are picking up superbug infections at hospitals, of all places.
But it turns out there’s one food that may be turning the superbug problem into a full-blown epidemic.
And it’s something we’ve all been told is healthy.
I, for one, would have never thought to put zero-calorie artificial sweeteners and superbugs in the same sentence.
Now, a new study has changed all that.
Superbugs, as I said, are bacteria that are immune to some (or all) antibiotics. We have no way to fight these bugs (from a medical perspective) and that’s a big problem.
The news is full of stories of people going to hospitals for a routine procedure and then spending weeks there because of an infection they acquired.
So, what role so sugar substitutes play in this mess?
Trehalose is one example of a sugar substitute. While you may not have heard of it, it has passed your lips if you have eaten almost any processed foods.
Here’s the problem: a recent study found that trehalose is the perfect food for certain strains of Clostridium difficile (a gut bacterium and known superbug) and trehalose has allowed the bacteria to become far more aggressive than it should be.
Clostridium difficile (or “C diff”) is a nasty disease and a major reason people get sick in hospitals. Nearly 500,000 people last year were infected with C diff and 15,000 died from the infection.
All artificial sweeteners are on my no-no list because:
- They Destroy Good Gut Bacteria: Gut bacteria protect us from bad infections and are a huge part of our immune system.
- They Have Direct Toxic Effects on Nerves: These including brain tissue, and this can lead to depression, anxiety, and even Alzheimer’s.
- They Actuall Increase Blood Sugar: This messes up your metabolism, puts you at risk for diabetes, and leads to weight gain.
And, now, you have another reason to avoid artificial sweeteners.
These studies should cause you to join me by banning artificial sweeteners from you house.
Your body will thank you for the change.
Health and Happiness,
