A bit more on Aspartame

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

I read this article in The Ecologist ages ago.  It’s a bit one-sided and perhaps a little over-excited, but it does give cause to concern.  Here’s the link to the article:  http://www.wnho.net/the_ecologist_aspartame_report.htm. And here for some balance is the response to the article from the aspartame industry:  http://www.aspartame.info/mediarch/medit056.html.

New Study into Aspartame

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

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.
