This Is How Aspartame Causes Obesity:

By Dr. Mercola

The allure of artificial sweeteners — zero calories and a sweet taste — is a strong one, such that up to 180 million Americans use them routinely.1

There have been concerns from the beginning, however, that consuming synthetic compounds with hyper-sweetness (200 times that of sugar in the case of aspartame) has some serious drawbacks.

One of the most appalling, especially to those consuming artificially sweetened sugar-free and diet products in the hopes of losing weight, is their propensity to fuel weight gain. Researchers wrote in the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine:2

Aspartame now being marketed as natural sweetener, name changed to ‘AminoSweet’

Aspartame now being marketed as natural sweetener, name changed to ‘AminoSweet’:

The world’s most toxic artificial sweetener is undergoing a major identity overhaul in an effort by its manufacturer to cover up the chemical’s sordid history, as well as to keep people buying it. “AminoSweet,” in case you see it on food labels, is really just plain-old aspartame, the same synthetic sweetening agent that’s repeatedly been linked to causing seizures and organ damage, among other physical harm.

Since its initial discovery in 1965 by G.D. Searle Pharmaceuticals, aspartame has been the subject of considerable and unrelenting controversy. Even way back then, scientists knew without a shadow of a doubt that aspartame wasn’t exactly safe for human consumption. But because it was sweet and non-caloric, it meant dollar signs in the eyes of company CEOs who recognized that marketing it as an alternative to sugar could be immensely profitable.

Top Selling Children’s Vitamin Contains GMOs And Cancer-Causing Chemicals Such As Aspartame

Flintstones-Vitamins

Top Selling Children’s Vitamin Contains GMOs And Cancer-Causing Chemicals:

It was recently uncovered that the top selling children’s vitamin brand could be doing much more harm than it is doing good. The Flintstones Vitamins, which have been the #1 brand in the US for years, has recently been exposed for containing GMOs and cancer-causing toxins such as Aspartame.

Ironically, Flintstones Vitamins are advertised as the “Pediatricians’ #1 Choice” for children’s vitamins.

However, the list of ingredients below are far from healthy or safe for children.

Comment By The American Beverage Association On One Of My Posts

Often times, when I do not add some related information to my posts, something like this happens …

The American Beverage Association commented here FDA Admits That Aspartame Is Toxic And Makes You Sick:

American Beverage Association, ABA Communications:

“Contrary to the misinformation cited here, extensive science verifies the safety of aspartame. In fact, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recently conducted an in-depth risk assessment on aspartame specifically, and deemed it safe for general consumption and pregnant women, as well as ruled out alleged health issues. Based on the body of science on this subject, aspartame is approved by more than 100 regulatory agencies around the globe, and is condoned by leading health organizations, including the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the American Diabetes Association. In sum, aspartame and the products that contain this ingredient can be enjoyed with confidence.”

However, when I do add some related stuff (like down below) there are almost no such comments.

I wonder why?
