Story at-a-glance -

  • The longest-ever human aspartame study, spanning 22 years, found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia in men; leukemia was also associated with diet soda intake in both sexes
  • Despite this, beverage manufacturers continue to misleadingly describe this artificial sweetener as safe
  • Coca-Cola, for instance, notes that the methanol produced by aspartame is similar to that found naturally in fruits and vegetables, but in the latter case it is firmly bonded to pectin, allowing the methanol to be safely passed through your digestive tract
