Do you know anyone who is worried about memory loss? Do they use diet products with aspartame?
Well, you might want to send them this article.
Beginning in the 1960s, aspartame researchers proved that aspartame creates neurological problems.
Some think this research is too old to mean anything credible – I think that it confirms that the “lawmakers” knew the dangers of aspartame a long time ago.
They’ve done nothing to inform the consumer.
Today, aspartame safety studies are still going on, and the results are still showing memory loss, nerve disorders, and various forms of cancer caused by aspartame use.
Including brain cancer.
A research study at SUNY University showed decades ago that aspartame use during pregnancy lowered the IQ of the fetus by an average of 10 points.
All of this info is well documented in my book, Sweet Poison.
The Tsakiris Study
The Tsakiris study, Department of Experimental Physiology, Medical School, University of Athens, Greece and the Institute of Child Health, Research Center, Aghia Sophia Children’s Hospital, Athens, Greece, proved that the over-use of aspartame, as well as the long-term effects, impair memory.
The research concluded that high levels of aspartame and cumulative toxic concentrations of aspartame’s by-products increased memory loss.
Additionally, neurological symptoms, including learning and memory processes, appeared in the study to be related to the high or toxic concentrations of this chemical sweetener.
So, this means that aspartame use by children can dumb them down and make them less effective students in school.
Short-term Versus Long-term Use
Some people may not experience noticeable health symptoms from short-term use of aspartame, and many times, this has been used as “proof” that there are no problems with aspartame safety.
Unfortunately, this argument ignores the fact that the effects of aspartame poisoning are cumulative over a long period of use.
The Tsakiris study shows that when a healthy individual, such as a young child or a pregnant woman, starts consuming aspartame and no memory loss is present, that aspartame can eventually lead to down-regulation of their brain receptors, and ultimately disrupt their memory and learning.
Why would anyone want to take this risk?

If you know a child doing poorly in school or are experiencing memory loss yourself, and aspartame is used, dig into this research proving that there is a connection.
It’s worth remembering.
