Aspartame is wrapped in so many controversies, that it is still wonder why manufacturers keep adding it to their products. It is one of the deadliest ingredients in the food we eat, but authorities claim it to be safe. Of course, they all ignore the side effects caused by aspartame.
Aspartame causes seizures, cardiovascular issues, and other severe ailments. The latest research has shown that artificial sweeteners trigger the development of diabetes. These also damage heart, kidney and brain.
This is not the only study involving aspartame. Back in 1967, Dr. Harold Waisman, a biochemist at the University of Wisconsin, did a few tests to determine the safety of aspartame. The tests were done on infant monkeys, and the study was supported by the Searle Company. Seven baby monkeys were given milk and aspartame. One of the monkeys dies, and the others experiences grand mall seizures.
Aspartame is a dangerous toxin, and we are all aware of this fact. This artificial sweetener is harmful to overall health, but it is still contained in many foods and drinks. “Diet” soda, chewing gums, breakfast cereals, and preserves contain the toxin.
Always check what you eat. Marketing is a tricky business that erases the bad reputation of this poison, and aspartame may be found under a different name. Has any of your food ever been labeled to contain aminosweet?
It is a sugar substitute that goes under the brands Nutrasweet or Equal. Aspartame is an excitotoxin. It has been considered controversial since the 1980s. This is the time when Donald Rumsfeld, the CEO of Searle, forced the approval of this sweetener. Now, that the FDA has approved the change of its name, millions of people will keep ingesting the toxin without even being aware of it.
Aspartame, or Amino Sweet, is made in a process that involves genetically modified bacteria in the US. In the EU, it is the food additive E951.
The breakdown of aspartame includes phenylalanine, people who deal with phenylketonuria (PKU) must avoid aspartame at any cost.
