Aspartame: The Bitter Truth Behind This Toxic Sweetener (Video)!
Aspartame is a synthetic sweetener that is now used in thousands of food products, sweets, chewing gum and soft drinks.
Aspartame is a substitute for natural sugars, which are blamed for many undesirable consequences for human health.
Aspartame is found in more than 60,00 products, primarily dietary. Although foods are allowed in quantities over-doses of aspartame can be harmful to human health.
Aspartame consists of two amino acids, and even 220 times sweeter than sugar.
As an artificial sweetener, unlike other sweeteners, the body breaks down like any other amino acids. This means that aspartame has energy value, but because of the high degree of mildness, its calories cannot be ignored.
Before being declared safe for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1981, aspartame has been tested in over 100 scientific studies, which included testing of animals and humans (infants, children, adults, obese individuals and diabetics).
The conclusion from all this testing was that phenylalanine, which is one of the breakdown products of aspartame is not safe for people who had been diagnosed with phenylketonuria (a metabolic disease that occurs due to deficiency of the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase).
I therefore, all foods containing aspartame, compulsory declaration must have a written text “contains a source of phenylalanine”.
The latest research on mice demonstrated that the carcinogenic effect of aspartame is manifested already at a daily dose of 20 mg / kg body weight, which is significantly lower than the currently valid ADI for humans (ADI is that quantity of additives which, as part of foods can be consumed daily for a lifetime, without any health consequences), which in the US is 50mg / kg, while in the European Union 40 mg / kg.
Furthermore, some studies show that aspartame can be very harmful to health. Symptoms of poisoning aspartame may include: dizziness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, vomiting, fast heart rate, weight gain, blurred vision, blindness, irritability, anxiety, rash, joint pain, depression, seizures, miscarriages , infertility, addiction, weakness and hearing loss.
Suspected aspartame may cause brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, metal lag, lymphoma, fetal defects, systemic lupus.
In pregnancy, aspartame may adversely affect the fetus.
All studies, the Food of the European Union, rejected as studies that are carried out to the required protocol.
