The Ecologist: Aspartame is the most controversial food additive in history. The most recent evidence, linking it to leukaemia and lymphoma, has added substantial fuel to the ongoing protests of doctors, scientists and consumer groups who allege that this artificial sweetener should never have been released onto the market and that allowing it to remain in the food chain is killing us by degrees.
This is a great and scary insight into Aspartame from Ecologist. It’s a wonder that the Pentagon’s once-listed biochemical warfare agent and winner of an 8 year FDA ban for toxicity is still all around us.
Aspartame is independently reported to produce a range of disturbing adverse effects in humans, including headaches, memory loss, mood swings, seizures, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s-like symptoms, tumours and even death.
The FDA managed to previously keep it banned for 8 years on evidence of serious central nervous system damage and the cause of cancer in animals.
