Did You Know - About Diet Sweeteners?


  • Aspartame is 180 to 200 times sweeter than sugar and contains about four calories per gram.

  • Toxicity to the chemical sweeteners vary within the human population; one person may not have effects until a dose of ten mg per kg of body weight (10 mg/kg) is reached, while another person (or a child) may have chronic toxicity effects at one mg per kg of body weight (1 mg/kg).

  • Phenylalanine, fifty percent of aspartame, causes seizures, elevated blood plasma, negative effects during pregnancy that can result in retardation, and insomnia.

  • The manufacturers admit that sucralose was unpleasant for the rodents to eat in large doses.

  • Neotame is the most potent sweetener marketed today and is 7,000 to 13,000 times sweeter than sugar.

  • Recent research shows a problem from sucralose with caecal enlargement and renal mineralization seen in post mortem animal research.

  • Scientists have proven that aspartame alters brain function and prompts behavior changes in all humans.

  • Untreated PKU may develop into additional neurologic symptoms, especially if aspartame is used.

  • Recent medical research studies have disclosed a connection between aspartame and multiple sclerosis (MS).

  • Phenylketonuria's (PKU) relationship to aspartame has not properly addressed and has not been thoroughly studied.

  • Aspartic acid makes up forty percent of aspartame and is a neuroexcitor, which means it negatively affects the central nervous system.
