New Study into Aspartame

Artificial sweeteners are one of my food paranoias that, in my view, rank up there as one of those danger signs hanging over modern living; they are something that purport huge health benefits versus the issues supposedly attached to natural sweeteners, like sugar.  So it is a great start that the Food Standards Agency is starting a study into aspartame.  I know it’s not a study that will look into the safety of aspartame, but you’ve got to start somewhere.

Visit the Food Standards Agency and register if you want to be part of the study: http://www.food.gov.uk/news/newsarchive/2009/jun/aspartame.
