“Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine, And Thy Medicine Be Thy Food.” -Hippocrates, The Father of Medicine
That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in this brave new documentary film brought to you by Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch. ‘Food Matters’ is a hard hitting, fast paced look at our current state of health.
Despite the billions of dollars of funding and research into new so-called cures we continue to suffer from a raft of chronic ills and every day maladies. Patching up an over-toxic and over-indulgent population with a host of toxic therapies and nutrient sparse foods is definitely not helping the situation.
‘Food Matters’ seeks to uncover the business of disease and at the same time explore the safe, cheap and effective use of nutrition and supplementation for preventing and often reversing the underlying causative aspects of the illness. With the premise of the film being: access to solid information helps people invariably make better choices for their health.
Aspartame, used in over 6,000 products as an artificial sweetener, is a toxic substance that poses severe risks to public health. However, the general public may not be aware of just how deadly this sugar substitute can be.
Aspartame is highly addictive. It causes actual cravings for the toxin. Many find that they cannot stop using the product because of the severe withdrawal symptoms. It can impair the human immune system and has been directly linked to cancer.
Aspartame is an excitotoxin that stimulates human cells reaction to the sweetener that does not actually contain any sweetness. Excitotoxins have been proven to create cancer growth and metastasis. This process feeds cancer cells.
Aspartic acid, also known as aspartate, acts as a neurotransmitter in your brain. It facilitates the transmission of information from neuron to neuron.
Excessive amounts of aspartate in your brain kills neurons by permitting the invasion of massive amounts of calcium into the cells. This influx generates extreme levels of free radicals that kill the cells.
The neural cell damage is caused by unwarranted use of aspartate. This is why they are denoted as “excitotoxins.” They “excite” or arouse the neural cells to death.
