Sugar cravings?

(NaturalNews) Parasites are a part of life. They cause serious health issues that, in some cases, become fatal. No one is exempt from these vile creatures. Every one, even you, has at least one type of parasite. Let’s review the most common types of parasites that are literally eating humans from the inside out.

Hungry hungry hookworm

An estimated 740 million people are infected globally. Hookworms are the leading cause of maternal and child morbidity in some developing countries. They also infect cats and dogs. Aptly named for their hooked mouths, hookworms latch on by biting into the intestinal wall. Once they’ve latched on they suck blood ravenously. This blood loss means anemia for the unsuspecting host. Hookworms can lay approximately 30,000 eggs per day and each worm generally lives 1 to 5 years.

The Tapeworm

To be accurate, this parasite doesn’t literally eat you; it does however, feed off of you. Tapeworms are the longest parasites in the world. On average, the parasites are around 14 feet long. The longest tapeworm ever recorded was 37 feet long; it was pulled out of Sally May Wallace through her mouth in 1991. Apart from being ridiculously long, this worm can live in it’s host for decades and typically goes unnoticed.

Tapeworms have a “crown” of tiny hooks on top of their head, which they use to attach themselves to your insides. They feed off of your nutrients by absorbing them through their skin. Pork, beef and fish are the primary sources of infection. Eating raw fish, beef, or pork that is undercooked can lead to tapeworm infection. Even meat and fish that are properly cooked can be a possible cause of infection if the chef has poor sanitation and reinfects your food.

Tapeworm infection signs and symptoms

• Constant hunger (especially for sweets and junk food)
• Abdominal cramping and/or pain
• Loss of appetite
• Malnutrition
• Weight loss
• Fatigue
• Nausea
• Diarrhea

Can they really cause death?

Though parasites most often go unnoticed, they can cause death. Some parasites, such as the tapeworm, can move out of the intestine and cause growths in local tissue where it settles such as in the brain, heart, or eye. In the brain, they can cause seizures and extensive damage to the nervous system.

The evil of artificial sweeteners (Cancer)

The high points:

Aspartame breaks down into methanol (would you knowingly drink rubbing alcohol?) which then breaks down into formaldehyde – a well known carcinogen.

Aspartame is primarily made up of aspartic acid and phenylalanine. The phenylalanine has been synthetically modified to carry a methyl group, which provides the majority of the sweetness. That phenylalanine methyl bond, called a methyl ester, is very weak, which allows the methyl group on the phenylalanine to easily break off and form methanol.

You may have heard the claim that aspartame is harmless because methanol is also found in fruits and vegetables. However, in fruits and vegetables, the methanol is firmly bonded to pectin, allowing it to be safely passed through your digestive tract. Not so with the methanol created by aspartame; there it’s not bonded to anything that can help eliminate it from your body. That’s problem number one.

Problem number two relates to the fact that humans are the only mammals who are NOT equipped with a protective biological mechanism that breaks down methanol into harmless formic acid. This is why animal testing of aspartame does not fully apply to humans. According to Dr. Woody Monte, a toxicology expert and professor emeritus at Arizona State University in food and chemistry:

“There is a major biochemical problem here. Methyl alcohol is known now, and has been known since 1940, to be metabolized differently by humans from every other animal.”

As explained by Dr. Monte, in humans, the methanol ends up acting as a Trojan horse, and here’s how. Both animals and humans have small structures called peroxisomes in each cell. There are a couple of hundred in every cell of your body, which are designed to detoxify a variety of chemicals. Peroxisome contains catalase, which help detoxify methanol. Other chemicals in the peroxisome convert the formaldehyde to formic acid, which is harmless, but, again, this last step occurs only in animals. Human peroxisomes cannot convert the toxic formaldehyde into harmless formic acid.

So to recap: in humans, the methyl alcohol travels through your blood vessels into sensitive areas, such as your brain, that are loaded with ADH, which converts methanol to formaldehyde. And since there’s no catalase present, the formaldehyde is free to cause enormous damage in your tissues. Symptoms from methanol poisoning are many, and include headaches, ear buzzing, dizziness, nausea, gastrointestinal disturbances, weakness, vertigo, chills, memory lapses, numbness and shooting pains in the extremities, behavioral disturbances, and neuritis.

The most well known problems from methanol poisoning are vision problems including misty vision, progressive contraction of visual fields, blurring of vision, obscuration of vision, retinal damage, and blindness. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen that causes retinal damage, interferes with DNA replication and may cause birth defects. Not surprisingly, the most comprehensive and longest human study looking at aspartame toxicity found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia.”

Breaking the sugar habit can be a daunting task – many find it nearly impossible. There are many reasons why it’s so hard; parasites are known to send signals, from the gut where they’ve taken up residence, to the brain via the Vagus nerve, trapped emotional compensations, etc. You don’t have to go it alone.
