The US government in 1994 mandated that additives be put in our breads and cereals. These are the synthetic folic acid, synthetic B1 etc you see on the label. These additives were to prevent birth defects as it was thought that women from poor neighborhoods are not getting enough folic acid in their diet. Ok, birth defects are down. BUT pancreatic cancer and diabetes are UP. I believe that messing with the food supply by mandating additives ultimately does more harm than good.
Today I only use pure raw sugar or pure raw honey. I never buy store bought bread. Too many toxins.

(a government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take everything you have)
Just asking about too many toxins.Would this not also apply to farmers pesticides,from fruit to veggies ?
I respect your right to make these choices and I am glad for your success. However I take issue with the subjective and anecdotal nature of the claims...such as “aspartame is poison that likely causes diabetes.” The world (natural and otherwise) is made of chemicals...some are toxic and some are not.
