Why Aspartame is the Most Dangerous Substance Added to Our Food Supply


Aspartame has had a long history of legal battles, being stopped by the FDA multiple times. In fact, when aspartame was re-approved, there was plenty of controversy and corruption accusations even involving Donald Rumsfeld. Image credit: Yeah Im Kenny

Here’s a brief history of aspartame from Mercola.com:

Aspartame was approved for dry goods in 1981 and for carbonated beverages in 1983. It was originally approved for dry goods on July 26, 1974, but objections filed by neuroscience researcher Dr. John W. Olney and consumer attorney James Turner in August 1974, as well as investigations of G.D. Searle’s research practices caused the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to put approval of aspartame on hold (December 5, 1974). In 1985, Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle and made Searle Pharmaceuticals and The NutraSweet Company separate subsidiaries.

Scientists were initially skeptical of aspartame due to the multiple health risks including seizures and death which are now finally being researched. For more on the health risks of aspartame watch this video then share this with anyone you know that still consumes aspartame sweetened products.
