"On September 30, 1980, a public Board of Inquiry advised against the approval of aspartame, stating: "The Board has not been presented with proof of a reasonable certainty that aspartame (NutraSweet) is safe for use as a food additive under its intended conditions of use."
"In 1981, however, the FDA approved aspartame for consumer use based on studies that seem tainted by heavy financial interest in its approval. To many medical practitioners and consumer interest groups, the approval was a gross betrayal of public trust."
"To think that there is even a reasonable doubt that aspartame can induce brain tumors in the American population is frightening. And to think that the FDA has lulled them into a false sense of security is a monumental crime," writes Dr. Russell L. Blaylock in Excitotoxins."

As someone trained extensively in Holistic Health, Psychotherapy, including other modalities in the helping profession, my interest in health and healing began 38 years ago. To notice food tasting differently, observe additives and preservatives appear; to experience allergic reactions compounded my desire to learn more.
My sharing is out of concern for our health and well being internationally. A healthy lifestyle includes healthy eating - a balance of vitamins and nutrients. The food we eat is the fuel that maintains our body. A lack of the right vitamins and nutrients is going to result in deficiency. Undetected, this could affect long term health. When food is processed - there is a question of nutritional value.
Some of you may remember Saccharin - a taste I found difficult to endure. Sugar was portrayed as being bad for us, so have other products. Yet Aspartame is poison!
You have one body - Take care of you and your health.
