So yeah, i was researching a few things for an assignment i'm doing when i thought i'd use some of the medical journals and look up some artificial sweeteners. Now i didn't have ample time but what i read there were no conclusive negative effects for saccharin based sweeteners or aspartame.
That's a different swing on things, after being drilled for as long as i can remember that aspartame is bad etc to hear studies proving otherwise. The saccharin study only produces negative side effects in rats, not mice, hamsters or monkeys.
And to quote from the aspartame journal
"In a few animal experiments, aspartame has been linked to hematopoietic and brain cancers. Most animal studies have found no increase in the risk of these or other cancers."
So it happened in a few animal cases and never again? It's statistically impossible for aspartame to cause the cancers it's proposed to. If i get time i'm going to sift through to find some journals which are moreso about any negative side effects, the headaches and such not just the serious cancer stuff.
Yeah but this study has near 500,000 people in it. That's pretty impressive. Not trying to prove otherwise but trying to say don't just believe the negative, if it was really that clear cut it wouldn't be on the market.
