Today’s article written for Natural News about Aspartame is very clear. Aspartame can affect your health. According to Natural News “over 75% of all side effects complaints received by the FDA’s Adverse Reaction Monitoring System (ARMS) for the past 4 years.” Really? And it’s not banned?
Not only does Aspartame cause many health problems, here’s the real catch: it actually encourages weight gain. I’ve read that in many books and websites.
So, if you are ingesting Aspartame, perhaps the better thing to eat is just plain sugar or a natural subsitute such as stevia or xylitol (which has the benefit of dental health).
