I've often wondered if the sudden burst of sugar substitutes on the market has helped contribute to the obese problem on the rise in the US. I don't think that's the only cause, but wonder if it's a contributing factor.
Almost like your body forgets how to process normal starches as it encounters the artificial replacement?
The link to obesity is very strong with these ingredients; if you eat a lot of foods containing MSG or similar substances, you will find it very difficult to stop eating. That's because MSG harms the normal function of your endocrine system and it disrupts your appetite control system. So even though you may be physically full from eating, your brain tells you you're still hungry and you overeat. If you've ever felt like you are eating unhealthy foods but couldn't stop eating them, it could be because you've been poisoning yourself with MSG. If you stop consuming foods with MSG, you may be able to rebalance this natural system and return to healthy, normal appetite control.

Aspartame is a phenethylamine chemically closely related to the SSNI Effexor (venlafaxine)
Both substances have showed to be potent neurotoxins in rodents over many experiments by many researchers...
You have to ask yourself whether you believe the research of a pharma company financed group of academics over the research of academics who have no vested/financial interest in the substance concerned...
I know who I put my faith in...Gimme sugar over this stuff any day...

You say life expectancy is up but death from cancer, heart disease, alzheimers and parkinsons is WAY UP.
Hmm..and they all just happen to be diseases linked to aspartame and other sweeteners
I think the "non-belevers" are taking for granted just the kind of people that are running this world.
And dont give me this prove it crap, Ive done the research, if you want to find out get up off your ass and do it yourself.
