Dear brothers & sisters. A long time ago I heard that aspartame causes bowel cancer. yet most sugar free/low cal products e.g diet pop are sweetened with aspartame.

My father was diagnosed with bowel cancer after years of using the artificial sweetner which might have caused it. Coincidence maybe? We will never know.


Now however, more research has shown this & may other artificial sweetners to be doing us more harm than good. Blast! Aspartame can actually increase appetite - so much for using it to lose wight eh?

Toxicity

Birth Defects

A study funded by Monsanto to study possible birth defects caused by consuming aspartame was cut off after preliminary data showed damaging information about aspartame. Additionally, in the book, While Waiting: A Prenatal Guidebook, it is stated that aspartame is suspected of causing brain damage in sensitive individuals. A fetus may be at risk for these effects. Some researchers have suggested that high doses of aspartame may be associated with problems ranging from dizziness and subtle brain changes to mental retardation.

Cancer (Brain Cancer)

In 1981, an FDA statistician stated that the brain tumor data on aspartame was so "worrisome" that he could not recommend approval of NutraSweet.(14)

In a two-year study conducted by the manufacturer of aspartame, twelve of 320 rats fed a normal diet and aspartame developed brain tumors while none of the control rats developed tumors, and five of the twelve tumors were in rats given a low dose of aspartame.(15)

Yeah, my teacher when I was in year 6 told us the dangers of aspartame poisoning as her sister died of cancer due to the sweetenner.

Both her children have died due to mental illnesses. May Allah grant them all peace.
