Many of us can recall the issue of artificial sweeteners over the decades . I recall a major transition occurred from use of cyclamates to “Aspartame”.
The story at the time was the cyclamates may cause cancer, hence the switch to aspartame, which by implication should be safer.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
The history of Aspartame is sordid, and its existence on the market is based to all lot of political corruption.
I will post some articles later, but IMHO it is extremely bad for you health.
