More Issues With Aspartame
In 1981, the FDA approved this red flag ingredient for food products. Today, aspartame is in over 6,000 products; if you ask me personally, that is one too many! Although the FDA has deliberated that it is safe for most people to consume, there are reported cases where aspartame can cause serious health problems. Therefore, it is always important to check food labels carefully before consuming any product that contains this artificial sweetener.
Fear not for those affected by the presence of this ingredient. Your symptoms are not a mere delusion. There is growing evidence that aspartame may pose a serious health risk. Studies have linked aspartame consumption to a variety of health problems, including headaches, memory loss, and seizures, to name a few. In addition, aspartame interferes with the body’s ability to absorb essential nutrients. As a result, people who consume large amounts of aspartame may be at risk for malnutrition. I mean, can you really trust a product that falls under the umbrella of Monsanto? Long story short, the company G.D. Searle & Company created aspartame in 1974, and Monsanto later purchased that company in 1984. So do yourself a huge favor and try some real, natural sweeteners like honey and stevia and stay away from all the products that list aspartame on their food label.
