I will never accept the news of aspartame safety. This can be s major lifestyle change for some of us. So how can you separate fact from fiction? Although stevia can be helpful to anyone, there are certain groups who are more likely to benefit from its remarkable sweetening potential. Anecdotal evidence has indicated that the sweetener might be linked to unpleasant side effects, including multiple sclerosis, brain tumours, blindness, mental health issues, and type 2 diabetes, but the science doesn’t support these claims. Adrian Gross and FDA toxicologist told Congress aspartame violated the Delaney Amendment because it caused cancer and the FDA should not have been able to set an allowable daily intake. First and foremost, there is the naturalistic fallacy, the common belief that what is “natural” is inherently good, and that anything man-made is inherently bad.
Aspartame is made by combining aspartic acid and phenylalanine to produce a sweetener that is 200 times sweeter
