Although its name sounds tame, this deadly neurotoxin is anything but. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener (over 200 times sweeter than sugar) made by the Monsanto Corporation and marketed as "Nutrasweet," "Equal," "Spoonful" and countless other trade names. Although aspartame is added to over 9,000 food products, it is not fit for human consumption! This toxic poison changes into formaldehyde in the body and has been linked to migraines, seizures, vision loss and symptoms relating to lupus, Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and other health destroying conditions (even Gulf War Syndrome).

Aspartame - Artificial Diet Sweetener Unhealthy & Makes You Fat!
Because Monsanto's artificial sweetener aspartame (sold as "Nutrasweet," "Equal," and "Spoonful") is over 200 times sweeter than sugar, it's a common ingredient found in "diet" foods and has become a sweetening staple for dieters. Besides being a deadly poison (see page 42), aspartame actually contributes to weight gain by causing a craving for carbohydrates. A study of 80,000 women by the American Cancer Society found that those who used this neurotoxic "diet" sweetener actually gained more weight than those who didn't use aspartame products.

Stevia, a herbal sweetener is a healthy alternative.
The science is clear, the clinical tests were performed improperly, NutraSweet is allegedly being misused, many believe it was approved fraudulently by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration), who refuses to revisit the evidence Several groups protested at the time against the approval, but Searle/Monsanto money prevailed. The NutraSweet revenues have been estimated in the trillions worldwide. Too bad for the dumb masses.
