What No One Tells You about Artificial Sugars

What No One Tells You about Artificial Sugars

Aspartame may be one of the most thoroughly tested food additives, but is it really safe? A new video documentary by PEERS (Public Education and Empowerment Resource Service), Sweet Misery, outlines the dangers of this artificial sweetener. Everyone should have this information to make an informed choice.

- There has been an increase in brain cancer and brain disorders since 1984. (The U.S. population began ingesting significant quantities of aspartame in 1983.)
- Aspartame affects protein synthesis and how the synapse operates in the brain and DNA, accordingly, most aspartame-based symptoms are related to the nervous system.
- Only a small percentage of users have an immediate reaction to aspartame. The rest experience a slow accumulation of toxins in the body that can begin to disrupt the normal activity of the brain and the endocrine system.
- Almost all studies attesting to aspartame's safety were funded by the industry (NutraSweet, diet soft drinks, etc.). Virtually every independent study has identified one type of problem or another with this additive.

Bearing in mind the type of site that this video is posted on, I'm not inclined to give it a great deal of credibility. I would do plenty of research (from reliable medical and scientific sources) before accepting this as fact. I'm going to try not to panic just yet anyway.
