Stay away from aspartame

This video runs for about 90 minutes, but it is well worth watching for that time. If you use artificial sweeteners, or diet anything, you need to be aware that the FDA was sideswiped into approving a food additive that is known to cause cancer, and a wide range of other very unpleasant conditions. The man who engineered this process of acceptance despite the evidence was none other than Donald Rumsfeld.

Briefly, the science is unequivocal. Aspartame releases methanol into your system. This is a poison that your body cannot deal with or eliminate: it therefore builds up and inevitably causes health problems. Some people have a higher sensitivity to methanol than others but the more you consume the more damage it does.

Aspartame should never have been released onto the market. The process was distorted deliberately in the interest of making lots and lots of money. Corporate well being is more important than personal well being.

If you believe this garbage about aspartame, you are easily persuaded by biased heresay. In that case I have a bridge I want to sell you.

Read the real truth about at,, or the review article on aspartame abstracted at

Or you could just read wikipedia
which seems to confirm most what this video claims

Did you actually watch the video?

And who paid for the "review article" you cite?

I think the precautionary principle applies
