Artificial Sweeteners -- More Dangerous Than You Ever Imagined

Story at-a-glance -

  • While manufacturers of artificial sweeteners claim that their products are safe, these are actually linked to many side effects. Aspartame goes by the brand names NutraSweet and Equal and is 180 times as sweet as sugar. At the end of 2008, aspartame was found in over 6,000 products.
  • The approval process for aspartame was said to have been riddled with scandal, bribes, and other shady dealings within the pharmaceutical industry, large American corporations, and the FDA. Initially, the FDA strongly denied the approval of aspartame products. Due to political ties and regulatory tricks, aspartame was finally approved in 1983.
  • Less than a year later, the FDA had recorded 600 consumer complaints of headaches, dizziness, and other health-related reactions from aspartame consumption. Other problems linked to aspartame consumption include weight gain, vision problems, depression and mood changes, and brain cancer.
  • If you have experienced an adverse reaction to any aspartame product, call the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator in your area.
