I have spent some time researching Aspartame as it is a leading sugar substitute in
our diet and sugar free products on the shelves. Do you know…?
What is Aspartame?
Aspartame, claimed by a Monsanto spokesperson (one of the leading companies using GMOS) is made from
utilizing the waste of Genetically Modified Bacteria.
“The process in which aspartame is created involves combining an amino acid known as phenylalanine with aspartic acid. First synthesized in 1965, aspartame requires bacteria for the sole purpose of producing phenylalanine. Monsanto discovered that through genetically altering this bacteria, phenylalanine could be created much more quickly” (Natural News)
Why is it bad?
It promotes cancer growth in the body. It basically feeds our cancer cells. Not to mention it is disgusting..
“Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious including seizures and death…According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be triggered or worsened by ingesting of aspartame: Brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, chronic fatigue syndrome, parkinson’s disease, alzheimer’s, mental retardation, lymphoma, birth defects, fibromyalgia, and diabetes.” (Mercola)
The FDA has approved the use of this bacteria waste claiming it is safe to use even though they know about the studies that have shown otherwise..
