The live action video for the song "Don't Need No Aspartame" is here!
Aspartame is a popular artificial sweetener used in diet sodas and foods.
Though it is FDA approved and commonly recognized as "safe", this substance has been the center of decades of scrutiny and controversy.
Ironically, as a sugar-free alternative, there are some studies which show up to 67% increased risk for type 2 diabetes for those who consume diet soda.
Recently, the International Journal of Molecular Sciences published a paper demonstrating the negative impact of artificial sweeteners on the bacteria of the gut microbiome.
Artificial sweeteners – including aspartame – were shown to interfere with the ability of bacteria in your gut to regulate their populations towards balance.
Since we're continuing to learn of the near endless connections of microbiome health to that of the rest of the body...any possible disruption in bacterial balance within the gut could theoretically be leading to a long list of other physical, mental, and emotional health issues.
With that in mind...CHECK OUT THE NEW MUSIC VIDEO!
Yes, that's really me singing (I seem to get that question a lot)!
As with many of my health/eco songs, it's not meant to be taken entirely seriously.
And the video is intended as an homage/spoof on the classic Coca-Cola marketing campaigns...
After you watch the brand new music video, you can Listen to and Download my WHOLE ALBUM RIGHT HERE!
Feel free to download the songs at any price - even free!
The suggested 'donation' is $15 for the album but I don't want cost to be a prohibiting factor, which is why you can NAME ANY PRICE.
Alternatively, if you're feeling generous and want to support the creation and production of future 'health/eco conscious music videos', please feel free to donate more. :)
All funds from sales will go directly into the production on more videos and music.
For years, my goal has been to use art, music, and film to help ideas and important health/environmental information be shared.
If you or someone you know drinks diet soda regularly, please consider sharing this video with them, as a gentle nudge that it's time to rethink the habit. :)
As always, thank you for supporting this mission for a more educated, natural, and regenerative healing future!
