If a product is approved by the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) and composed of natural ingredients, would you assume
it is safe to consume? If the same product is an artificial sweetener, would you assume
it helps control your weight? Millions of people use aspartame,
the artificial sweetener known as NutraSweet, with these
assumptions in mind.
However, aspartame's tainted history of approval and potentially
toxic ingredients cast serious doubt on the safety of this sugar
substitute. Furthermore, aspartame may actually increase your
appetite (Farber 52).
While the FDA approval may signal the green light for safe
consumption, 85 percent of all complaints registered with the
FDA are for adverse reactions to aspartame, including five
reported deaths. A closer look at the unscientific studies,
suspicious approval methods, and its harmful ingredients,
reveal the hidden dangers of this artificial sweetener.
In reality, aspartame poses a public health threat.
