Aspartame - Silent Killer or Safe Sweetener?
by Renee Kennedy
The Aspartame controversy rages on.
Aspartame is approved by the FDA. According to the US government, aspartame is a safe
sweetener. Many other web sites besides government sites will attest to the safety
of aspartame. On the other hand,
there are many web sites that talk about the toxicity of aspartame over a long period of
ingestion. Some even going as far as saying it will kill you.
Below, I?ve provided you with some links that talk about the dangers and the safety of
Aspartame. If you are concerned about how Aspartame is going to affect your health,
you should speak to your own health care provider. Your doctor will know your specific
health issues and can help you decide what is best for you.
Holisticmed.com alleges that 100% of
independent research shows problems with Aspartame. In other words, according to
Holisticmed.com, researchers not funded by those who make money from Aspartame, are
finding evidence that the artificial sweetener is not good for you. You can go to
that link and find a whole host of sites that discuss and propagate the potential dangers of artificial sweeteners. Whether they are myth or truth, I leave that to you to decide.
Institutes of Health (a government agency) says, "Over the past three decades, questions
have been asked about the safety of the artificial sweetener aspartame, specifically,
whether aspartame is a neurotoxin? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued
statements declaring that aspartame does not pose a threat to the general population.
Still, some people may be sensitive to aspartame and may experience headache or fatigue."
Aspartame.org will attest to the safety of the product. Right up front,
this site adresses the benefits, facts and myths associated with Aspartame.
It is not the intention of this article to tell you that Aspartame is a safe or dangerous product.
The above links should provide you with more information. Again, if you are concerned about the
safety of the product for your specific health issues, you should speak to your own health care provider.
