Artificial Sweeteners: The Bitter Truth
Aspartame was once listed by the Pentagon as a biochemical warfare agent.
It can be found in more than 5,000 foods, including soda pop, chewing gum, table-top sweeteners, diet and diabetic foods, breakfast cereals, jams, sweets, vitamins, and prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
The FDA denied approval for it for 8 years before political pressure got aspartame the green light.
Sold commercially under names like Nutrasweet and Canderal, it could be poisoning you.
Independent studies indicate aspartame can produce a range of disturbing adverse effects in humans, including headaches, memory loss, mood swings, seizures, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s-like symptoms, tumors and even death.
