Aspartame is converted by the body into formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical

(NaturalNews) The controversy surrounding one of the world’s most popular artificial sweeteners, aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal), continues some 30 years after the chemical was rammed through the regulatory process by pharmaceutical interests, despite its well-documented dangers. And yet to this very day, many people are still unaware of the chemical sweetener’s sordid history, not to mention what aspartame is actually made from and how it affects the body and brain.

Here are a few pertinent facts to get your interest:

  • Aspartame is converted by the body into formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical.
  • Aspartame causes obesity and metabolic syndrome.
  • Reagan-appointed FDA commissioner helped get aspartame approved despite evidence showing its toxicity.
  • Aspartame is made from the feces of genetically-modified (GM) E. coli bacteria.
  • Aspartame crosses the blood-brain barrier, potentially causing permanent brain damage.

  1. Once again another toxic brew, but sadly been around for a long period of time and STILL consumed by many as it has been loaded into 5000-6000 products.
    Who would have ever thought of drinking or eating something that has been engineered out of CRAP??
    If you dont believe it, check it out for yourself. See how Aspartame or the numbers might be of help..950 or 951 can affect you and see how it was engineered.

    You can go back to Donald Rumsfeld who was the CEO of G.D.Searle & Co. They managed to get this CRAP, put through the FDA (Food Drug Administration)and into the food, beverage industry.
    If you have never heard of Dr Russell Blaylock, do a Google search and listen to what he says about Aspartame. It is a Neurotoxin.
    Be sure to grab your diet drink, sit back and watch this video…..
    SWEET MISERY. I wouldn’t be surprised if that can of crap was the last one you ever picked up. As i said earlier, its in over 5000 products so look for the numbers and become aware of what you are putting into your body.
