Can you mention the list of products that contain the deadly chemical aspartame? Besides diet coke.

I know its in gum, diet sodas, jello etc but what else? I saw some videos on youtube on that chemical and it freaked me out all the bad stuff it does! And its even more insane that its actually in 9,000 products!

  • Crystal light, any sugar free Kool-Aid, a lot of drink packets, basically if it says "low" or "no calories" or "sugar free" check it for it.

  • Diet right is now made with Splenda, which is said to be safe to drink even during pregnancy. It also makes it taste better in my opinion. More like old fashioned rootbeer.

  • Dangers in aspartame
    Aspartame, the main ingredient in Equal and NutraSweet, is responsible for the most serious cases of poisoning, because the body actually digests it. Aspartame should be avoided by most women, but particularly in those with neuropsychiatric concerns. Recent studies in Europe show that aspartame use can result in an accumulation of formaldehyde in the brain, which can damage your central nervous system and immune system and cause genetic trauma. The FDA admits this is true, but claims the amount is low enough in most that it shouldn’t raise concern. I think any amount of formaldehyde in your brain is too much.
