It has a slight different taste from sugar, pretty close though.

Sorry readers: For mixing up Aspartame (artificial sweetener) with slenda (artificial sweetener).

As you can see some of my fans were quite upset of me.... :lol:

No point talking to you at all when you keep completely re-writing your posts after you've submitted em.

Look, my fans were really getting at me because I mixed up Splenda with Aspratame.

If you guys mixed those two up, I would not direct comments like that right at you.

Two posts. Your post at the top of the page might not display the edit information, but the moderators can see what you said first even so.

No point. There's no telling what you'll edit in or out.

Here is a scientific opinion on the re-evaluation of aspartame (E 951) as a food additive by an EFSA Panel:
click

(...)The acute toxicity of aspartame was tested in mice, rats, rabbits and dogs and was found to be very low. Similarly, sub-acute and sub-chronic studies did not indicate any significant toxic effects in rats, mice or dogs.(...)
(...)Overall, the Panel concluded that the available data do not indicatea genotoxic concern for aspartame.(...)
(...)The Panel agreed that there was no evidence of treatment-related neoplastic or non-neoplastic lesions in any of these studies.(...)
(...)A large prospective cohort study in Denmark found no consistent association between the consumption of artificially sweetened beverages (but not with aspartame specifically) during pregnancy and the diagnosis of asthma or allergic rhinitis in children.(...)


As for methanol and formaldehyde:
(...)
The Panel concluded that the data on reproductive and developmental toxicity did not suggest that there was a risk from methanol derived from aspartame at the current exposure estimates or at the ADI of 40 mg/kg bw/day.

In addition, the Panel concluded that, based on recent measurements of basal levels of formaldehyde in blood and on the modelling of its biological turnover and steady state concentration in cells, formaldehyde formed from aspartame-derived methanol was not of safety concern at the current exposure estimates or at the ADI of 40 mg/kg bw/day.

Another aspartame metabolite, aspartic acid is itself a neurotransmitter and can be converted to the more potent excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate. The Panel noted that there was no evidence in vivo for neurotoxicity associated with aspartame exposure. The Panel concluded, however, that aspartic acid generated from aspartame was not of safety concern at the current exposure estimates or at the ADI of 40 mg/kg bw/day.(...)

and so on and so on...

I think there is truth in that video, at least the aspartame bit. The bit where they are selling some probiotic pills I find somewhat dubious.

And that's a reason to post a selfcontradicting consperacy video that doesn't need anymore advertising?

I would also point out the aspartame is particularly agredious. Just making up facts to match the precoceved conclusion.

Don't think so. The dirty politics behind it, who can deny?

Aspartame is hard on the liver and should be avoided by anyone with any form of hepatitis. There may also be a connection between taking it during pregnancy and some childhood personality problems.

Since I have chronic hep B, I avoid it and use aspirin. Now aspirin is hard on the stomach and can make any brain hemorrhage or other bleeding you experience much worse, so I am careful about my blood pressure and take omeprozole when I take when I take aspirin and which, of course, increases the chances of pneumonia. On and on it goes -- one thing for sure -- I will not take antibiotics as a prophylactic for pneumonia.

Really? Raises hand.

How about some court documents or anything not from a conspiracy website before you tell us we can't dent it?
