Why I don’t like Aspartame


In 1980, the FDA had a Public Board of Inquiry (PBOI) who examined the relationship between aspartame & brain cancer. The PBOI concluded that aspartame does not cause brain damage, but it did not approve aspartame at that time, due to unanswered questions about cancer in laboratory rats.

In 1983, the FDA approved aspartame for use in carbonated beverages. Monsanto manufactured saccharin & in 1903-1905, their entire saccharin output was shipped to the growing soft drink company Coca-Cola. (Saccharin is a possible human carcinogen and a suspected reproductive and developmental toxicant). In 1985, for $2.7 billion, Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle & Co, a producer of artificial sweeteners & prescription drugs. Monsanto also makes ROUNDUP.

There is research proving aspartame’s connection to memory loss & learning impairment, but the diet sweetener industry doesn’t want you to know about it. The Tsakiris study from Greece is one of the most definitive research studies proving aspartame’s connection to memory loss and learning disorders. This study has been hidden from public view.

For more than 25 years, the FDA and the manufacturers of aspartame have claimed all of the adverse symptoms reported to aspartame use are “anecdotal.” (In other words, if a person claims their health problems are related to aspartame, but laboratory studies don’t confirm this, then the person’s reaction to aspartame is disregarded.) People may not experience noticeable illness from short-term use of aspartame, and this has many times been interpreted as proof that there is no problem with its safety.
