Aspartame is the sweet poison we all need to avoid. If you ingest aspartame in your food, eliminating this one toxin from your diet could have a powerful effect on your overall health.

What is aspartame?

Aspartame is one of the most common artificial sweeteners in use today. Products that might contain aspartame include diet sodas, yogurts, chewing gum, cooking sauces, potato chips, tabletop sweeteners, drink powders, flavoured water, sugar-free products and cereal.

The Negative Effects

Frequently, aspartame toxicity is misdiagnosed as a specific disease. This has yet to be reported in scientific literature, yet it has been reported countless times to independent organizations and scientists.
In other cases, it has been reported that chronic aspartame ingestion has triggered or worsened certain chronic illnesses. Very often, physician and patient assume these worsening conditions are simply a normal progression of the illness. And while frequently that may be the case, in many other instances the problem is chronic aspartame poisoning.

According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, many chronic illnesses may be caused or worsened by its long-term ingestion. To list just a few, these include: brain tumors; multiple sclerosis; epilepsy; chronic fatigue syndrome; Parkinson’s disease; Alzheimer’s; mental retardation; lymphoma; birth defects; fibromyalgia; diabetes; arthritis (including rheumatoid); chemical sensitivities; and attention deficit disorder (ADD).

In some cases, such as MS, the severe symptoms may mimic or exacerbate the illness, but do not cause the disease.

The Evidence is Overwhelming!

There have been more reports for reactions to aspartame than for all other food additives combined, and throughout the world, there are hundreds of published studies on the health hazards of aspartame. In addition, there are some 10,000 documented reports of adverse reactions to aspartame, including death. Since it is estimated that only about 1% of people who experience a reaction report it, it is safe to assume at least 1,000,000 people have had a reaction to this chemical.

By far the most frequently reported reaction is migraine. Other commonly reported symptoms of an aspartame reaction include: headache; mood change; change in vision; convulsions and seizures; sleep problems and insomnia; change in heart rate; hallucination; abdominal cramps and pain; memory loss; rash; nausea and vomiting; fatigue and weakness; dizziness and poor equilibrium; diarrhea; hives; and joint pain.

The Conclusion is Simple

Aspartame: we don’t need it, we don’t want it and we should all try to avoid food products that contain this unnecessary and problematic chemical.
