I cannot believe how many people I know who continue consuming products containing aspartame even after they have had sideeffects and after all I've
told them about it, they still continue to use it.
So a few years back, all the chewing gum in my country switched over from one type of sweetener to aspartame, probably because it's so much cheaper
than other sweeteners since they have to use very little of it. At frst I didn't know anything about aspartame, I didn't even know, they switched.
However I started to notice that every time I had chewed gum I got a sore throat followed by a headache that would last a few hours, so I quit chewing
Also I had a friend who always drinks light soda's, so everytime I was at her place I would drink light soda's and I started to realise I got the
exact same symptoms after drinking those soda's. Not long after that I read about aspartame, the sideeffects and I was so shocked! I was never going
to consume anything containing aspartame. Well as it turns out it's harder than you think. The amount of products in the shops that contain this
garbage is just huge!
My brother told me that for weeks he experienced a nasty throat sore that wouldn't go away. I found out he drank loads of limonade containg aspartame
each day. He stopped drinking it and voilá, the symptom dissapeared. Now, however, he started drinking it again, he drinks less than before, but I
just can't believe he would even go near that stuff.
