A few weeks ago, I did a Blog post Is Aspartame Safe For You? If you haven’t read that Post, here is the link for easy access Blog – Is Aspartame Safe For You?. Today I want to continue this discussion on the safety of Aspartame from a study done by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. They have classified Aspartame as a “possible carcinogen.”
How Was Aspartame Discovered?
Remember Aspartame is an artificial ingredient and was never intended for food. It was discovered in a lab as a pharmaceutical developer was studying it’s use in a drug. He accidently licked his finger and found that it was sweet. It was transferred to the food industry after that.
A peer reviewed study done in France stated that people are more likely to get cancer if they use artificial sweeteners like Aspartame.
Aspartame Contributes to Weight Gain!
Aspartame can also contribute to weight gain because it encourages sugar cravings. Remember in my last Blog post I said it tricks your brain in thinking that you are getting “sugar” and when your body realizes it’s not sugar, it starts to crave sugar. If you fall for the craving and go for the sugar, you have defeated the purpose of using this toxic substitute sweetener.
I’m including a link to an article by Vani Hari, also known as Food Babe. Vani does tremendous research on ingredients in food and calls out many of the food companies for their deceptive acts. She was instrumental in calling out Subway for the chemical ingredient found in Subway’s rolls that is the same chemical used in Yoga Mats. She is worth following. Here is the link to her article on Aspartame.
Please Stay Away from Artificial Sweeteners!
Staying away from the artificial sweeteners is something I highly encourage clients to do. There are days I want to shout from the roof top. Please, please, please revisit this if you take this in your diet. Don’t become a potential cancer statistic.
To be healthy you must begin by eating healthy and there is nothing healthy about ingesting “chemicals.”
