WHY ASPARTAME CONSUMPTION PRODUCES CANCERS SLOWLY OVER TIME
Aspartame, the artificial sweetener made of a combination of two amino acids and methanol, has been found by a recent study on rats, to produce cancers over the lifetime of these laboratory animals. The study was conducted by the European Ramazzini Foundation of Oncology and Environmental Sciences.
Although the European Union's Food Safety Authority in Parma has stated that the study results are inconclusive and should not make us stop taking aspartame, the Scientific Director of the Foundation and primary author of the aspartame study, Dr. Morando Soffritti, M.D., stands by the study's results and announces further studies not only on aspartame but on other widely used sweeteners as well.
As for a possible mechanism on how aspartame promotes the appearance of cancers in those who consume the sweetener, here is a recent article by Beldeu Singh, a Malaysian researcher.
