That is main purpose of artificial sweetener, nothing else


That's not why artificial sweeteners were created.

Maybe look into that.

If there's all this poison in our food and drink what are people living longer than ever today?

anything Artificial is not natural or good in anyway for you. this is where common sense comes in!


Well, not necessarily: insulin is man made (artificial) and it saves millions of lives every year.
Sunshine is natural and it causes cancer to millions every year.

look if you want to talk science


Oh boy...


aspartame is a "Artificial Sweeter~" the key word there is Artificial"

anything Artificial is not natural or good in anyway for you. this is where common sense comes in!


This is, ironically, an incredibly ignorant, scientifically inaccurate and downright dumb claim to make.

For everyone who is avoiding aspartame even if it's just because it tastes bad there is another one to watch out for.

Sucralose or splenda. Another artificial sweetener which is in a lot of beverages.



Sucralose is a non-nutritive sweetener. The majority of ingested sucralose is not broken down by the body, so it is noncaloric.[4] In the European Union, it is also known under the E number E955. Sucralose is about 320 to 1,000 times sweeter than sucrose,[5] three times as sweet as aspartame and twice as sweet as saccharin

If I went by what I read on ATS, I could not eat, drink or do anything because everything will kill me.

When you avoid these sweeteners your left with a diet the greatly boosts your over all health and well being.

It's not very hard at all either. I Literally never consume aspartame, but not spending extra money and its not hard to find food at the store.

Hardly a surprise there, I won't consume it for a number of reasons. Same goes for polyhydrogenated anything, or well pretty much anything with ingredients I can't pronounce. S&F

I hope Rumsfeld is made to pay if this is the case. We use stevia because of the aspartame rumours as we don't want to gamble with our health so that men like him can make a profit.

I don't need study to tell me if it is healthy. If it is artificially made and have zero usage to my health then it is crap.

And here on earth there are some people that don't put crap in their mouth.

They can do studyez measure thing but not for me. I don't need to put crap in my mouth to satisfy my brain. My brain seeks real food!!!


What about instead of using food to satisfy your brain you took to learning?
I find that satisfies my brain far more than any food does.


I dont satisfy my brain, my brain satisfy me.


You seem easily pleased.

Your ability to pronounce a chemical name has no bearing on its safety.

Would it help to restate it as I tend not to eat anything I can not readily Identify???

I never understood how anyone could drink anything with aspartame in it.

Its not sweet, its bitter to me and just plain sickening to try to drink.

Either way I am plenty happy to have my food local and farm fresh, you guys are welcome to eat the lab made crap all you like. When I say I like fresh, I mean it still had a pulse an hour ago.

No. It would help if you looked at the data before making assertions. Aspartame is the most tested artificial sweetener in existence.

I chowed down on a bit of (3β,5Z,7E)-9,10-secocholesta- 5,7,10(19)-trien-3-ol with my eggs and tomatoes this morning. I'm pretty sure it isn't going to hurt me. Given my recent endless night shifts, it seemed advisable. Now, that's pretty much a tongue twister. And by the 'I can't pronounce it' scale of lethality, I should have died foaming and kicking on the floor. But if you change the name a bit...vitamin d3...it suddenly BECOMES pronounceable. But did anything change when I used the common name instead of the IUPAC name? No.

I'm not sure "I can't pronounce it" as a gating factor is rational. YMMV.
