The Dangerous Effect Behind The Diet Sugar

Try to pay attention to the composition of the ingredients wrapped food around us, especially the one with  sugar free 'or' diet '. words. What do you see there? Aspartame. Aspartame is a low-calorie sweetener substitute for regular sugar (sucrose).

Aspartame is known as a diet sugar. Not surprisingly, for a woman who has a program to reduce body weight will bring this sugar diet sachet packaging everywhere.

For some people, consuming  diet sugar  is one way to keep the body healthy and stay slim. Moreover, this kind of sugar is strongly recommended for people with diabetes.


However, aspartam, one of the artificial sweetener substance commonly found in the sugar diet, can caused negative effects if it over consumed in long-term. Some of the negative effects for example : trigger the human brain network interference, cause headaches, cramps, convulsions, death socket, nausea, muscle cramps, to the most tragic result: death.

Thank you for this good info. Although safe dosage for consuming aspartame is 40 mg of every kg of body weight, a lot of food and soft drink sold using aspartame as their sweetener, so our aspartame daily intake might exceed that limit .
