This week on Let’s Get Real, Erica Wides takes on artificial sweetener addiction. Erica goes back in time and talks about the diet sodas of her youth- Tab and Diet Sprite, and how they made her feel outright unhealthy. She also talks about aspartame’s ugly history amongst the likes of Monsanto and Donald Rumsfeld, and why you should NOT believe it’s safe. Do you want to see what it’s like in artificial sweetener-infused foodiness hell? Erica urges you to quit your sweetness habit! This program is brought to you by Hearst Ranch.

“We assume because [artificial sweeteners] are allowed in our food, and that the FDA says they’re safe, that they ARE safe.” —Erica Wides on Let’s Get Real
