Many people don’t realize that aspartame is very well-documented as an excitotoxin, meaning that it overexcites nerve cells, causing permanent damage.
According to researchers, aspartame causes brain lesions, blindness, migraine headaches, mental confusion, reproductive disorders, Alzheimer’s disease and many other nervous system disorders.
Over the years, there have been numerous documented cases of the harmful and sometimes deadly affects of aspartame.
Part of this is probably due to the fact that aspartame, when consumed, breaks down into several chemicals, and one of those chemicals is formaldehyde.
Formaldehyde, of course, is a potent nerve toxin and has no place in the human body, yet people are effectively “drinking formaldehyde” every time they pick up a diet soft drink or “diet” food item sweetened with aspartame.
