The other day I was looking through the shelves at our local supermarket and saw cranberry juice advertising “Zero Sugar Added” – well, I always look at the fine print (as you should learn to do too) and it revealed an additive known as Sucralose. Essentially this is artificial sugar. There is considerable controversy of the use of artificial sweeteners in food. There are several of them out there. Remember we focus on natural health, by putting artificial foods in our systems we are compromising nature. Our bodies do not know how to deal with artificial foods, it’s like trying to put square pegs into round holes, and it just doesn’t work. A good resource for getting reliable information on foods is the Center for Science in the Public Interest. They have a really cool App that you can get on your smart phone or iPad.
