Aspartame is an artificial sweetener which, once consumed, breaks down into three components – aspartic acid, phenylalanine and methanol. Aspartame has been passed as fit to consume by more than 100 countries around the World, but there is evidence that each of Aspartame’s chemical components can have toxic effects on health.
The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and now the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), up until recently, would have you believe that aspartame is perfectly safe for use in well over 6000 common food and drink products worldwide.
Contradicting this, repeated independent research has shown the serious health impacts of Aspartame.
It is thought to be an addictive neurotoxin that may cause a wide range of neuro- endocrine disrupting and carcinogenic (cancer causing) effects.
The amino-acid-based compound breaks down to create toxic by-products, namely formaldehyde, formic acid and aspartylphenylalanine diketopiperazine (DKP), the latter being associated with an increased rate of brain tumours in animal studies.
Unfortunately research exposing these truths has been swept aside in the face of corporate pressure - another scientific travesty...
