Is aspartame really bad for you? Just wanna have a basic understanding. Should I stop drinking things that have it?

Is aspartame really bad for you? Just wanna have a basic understanding. Should I stop drinking things that have it?

Probably in large: Amounts, it is not the best for you. There is little evidence of harm if you use a teaspoon in your coffee, but large amounts of diet sodas and use of very large amounts in baking may be a problem. There is some evidence that the body reacts to it like it does to real sugar, and we produce too much Insulin and glucagon and this can cause metabolic problems. I would keep it to a minimum. ...Read more

Can you use aspartame and sugar when drinking alcohol?

Can you use aspartame and sugar when drinking alcohol?

Yes: There are no interactions. In general, you are better off using smaller amounts of sugar than using aspartame or sucralose, which actually metabolically may be just as bad as sugar in higher doses. Plant-derived sweeteners like Truvia (Stevia) may be safer, but many low-calorie and low-fat foods have additives that may not be good for us either. Keep alcohol to 1-2 standard drinks/day. ...Read more

When I consume drinks, etc with aspartame it makes my fibromyalgia more painful/ hurt worse, why is that?

When I consume drinks, etc with aspartame it makes my fibromyalgia more painful/ hurt worse, why is that?

THIS IS A POISON: ? why fibromyalgia (FM) pain worse after aspartame drinks. Interesting! This substance is amino acid congener-knockoff (of aspartic acid) meaning that it is synthetic amino acid & when eaten is daily incorporated into new muscle protein. Who wants Frankenstein-muscle & how would synthetic muscle work? Aspartame is known carcinogen that got shuffled through FDA approval by one of Reagan's cronies. ...Read more

Is aspartame bad for you? The sparkling water I like contains it, but I heard it causes cancer. Any truth??

Nothing after 20 yrs: Since the 1990's, there has been a scare campaign against aspartame as causing everything -- familiar cancers, multiple sclerosis, lupus, brain tumors, chronic fatigue. A few people are clearly allergic. But the science is fabricated, the real authors have eluded identification and the scientific attributions have been fake. My doctor friends are mostly still drinking it. ...Read more

If a person has aspartame poisoning does simply quitting products that contain aspartame like diet soda treat the problem or is there other treatment?

If a person has aspartame poisoning does simply quitting products that contain aspartame like diet soda treat the problem or is there other treatment?

No such thing: Aspartame can not poison you. This is based on a crazy web scam. There is no known toxicity proved with this product. There is some weak evidence that consumption of diet soda may be associated paradoxically with weight gain, in spite of the zero calories, but the reasons for this if confirmed are unclear and may be associated with eating habits in those who are soda drinkers. ...Read more

More than sugar!!: Sugar is grandfathered in & if it (fructose) had to go through the same trials aspartame, it would likely have never been approved.
