Aspartame "It's just like any other sugar" Yea Right!

What is it? How Was it Made?

It is Everywhere!

It is in most foods and beverages,even gum.It is 10% poison and has no health benefit.It deteriorates the nervous system and threatens the body with various cancers and disorders.The worse part about it is,it is legal and advertised as a perfectly safe substance by the FDA.It is Aspartame,and it not only is a danger directly to the consumer but also to the future direct consumer(the developing fetus).

Just to name a few.However,private researchers still post lab data that seems to show the FDA that Aspartame is a completely safe product.However,there are independent researchers that post studies that show Aspartame is almost 100% unhealthy and threatens the lives of those who consume it everyday.Many of the private research (prior to the FDA approval of the additive) was shown to have extremely sloppy reports and bias,inaccurate information,thus causing the FDA to hold the approval for a long time until further investigation.The approval was finally passed with pressures from various political and industrial pressures.

Don't Take My Word

Don't simply go off a Hubpage for information on this topic.Do your own research and learn as much as possible before even making a decision about this additive.Sure what is presented here is compelling,and there may be even more that isn't covered in this Hub.However,information is power,and when it comes to health and the safety of the body,power means life.Aspartame isn't the only of its kind,there are many other FDA approved substances that pose a real threat to the overall health of America and other countries who use the same ingredients.Take to the streets and bring out those pens,don't let this silent killer get away.

I did research on Aspartame and it is definitely not something you want to include in your diet. I don't think a lot of people realize the bad effects Aspartame can cause, and it is in diet sodas and many other foods. This is why it is important to read labels when buying groceries. Good information.
