Used as a sugar substitute and often marketed as Nutrasweet and Equal, aspartame is an excitotoxin that destroys the brain and body. Its use has been a controversial subject since the 1980s when the CEO of Searle, Donald Rumsfeld, pushed for it’s approval to be sold on the market. Now, its name is being changed, with FDA approval, to try to dupe millions into purchasing and consuming this toxin once again.
- Derived from genetically-modified (GM) amino acids, aspartame is the world’s most popular artificial sweetener, present in everything from chewing gum and soda pop to children’s cereals and even toothpastes, despite the fact that its track record of safety leaves much to be desired.
- Mental retardation and various other forms of brain damage have also been linked to aspartame consumption, side effects that the federal government in its continued approval of the chemical drug refuses to address.
- While sugar has its own health drawbacks, it’s nowhere near the level of aspartame’s threat.
“The world’s most toxic artificial sweetener is undergoing a major identity overhaul in an effort by its manufacturer to cover up the chemical’s sordid history, as well as to keep people buying it.”
