Sugar, Aspartame or AminoSweet, which one is better for you?

by Project Censored

Headache, memory loss, seizures, vision loss, coma, cancer, worsened or mimicked symptoms of diseases and conditions such as fibromyalgia, MS, lupus, ADD, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue and depression. If any of these awesome problems appeal to you, then choose Aspartame or AminoSweet and keep drinking that diet pop and chewing bubble gum!

Thirty years ago the world was introduced to aspartame, a sugar substitute. Now the company that manufactures the artificial sweetener is changing the name to AminoSweet. Ajinomoto, the company that makes the artificial sweetener hopes to buffalo the public so they can keep their yearly profits of $12 billion by telling them it is a natural product made with two amino acids. Americans aren’t the only ones ingesting this carcinogen. Aspartame is a worldwide health risk that was once on the Pentagon’s list of biochemical agents, but people still consume it…

The global population is increasing and humans are consuming more, therefore humans will have to increase their production of food and food additives. Aspartame is one of those products. This artificial sweetener (NutraSweet, Equal, NatraTaste, Canderel) is without question the most toxic and health-destroying “food” sold to consumers. The number of people who have recognized toxicity reactions or damage from chronic aspartame ingestion is well over one million people in the U.S.While many people’s health has already been destroyed by this product, the more serious concern is the long-term nervous system damage, immune system damage, and irreversible genetic damage known to be caused by aspartame’s metabolite, formaldehyde. Formaldehyde can cause severe health problems at exceptionally low levels of exposure.
Primarily, the only research that claims aspartame is safe is that which has been funded and/or controlled by the former manufacturer (Monsanto). They put together convincing-sounding summaries of poorly-designed research in order to present to the public. When the research is examined closely it is found that the testing was often done improperly, the results were often reported inaccurately, or in a biased way, and the equivalent of extremely low doses of aspartame was often used even though the summaries reported the use of high doses. Sometimes, the manufacturer points to the fact that aspartame has been approved in many countries. But none of these countries even tested aspartame. They relied on the manufacturer’s pre-approved “research.”


Monsanto sold its aspartame business recently to Ajinomoto of Japan and a group made up of former Monsanto executives and Michael Dell’s (of Dell Computer) consulting /investment firm. Clearly such manufacturers are interested in their bottom line, not the health of the people who consume their products (Ajinomoto profits in 2013 were $12 billion). Doctors are no better since they know of the health risks but say nothing. They are motivated by the pharmaceutical company’s lining their pockets for using their products to treat the peoples’ health problems from ingesting AminoSweet. Of course, this does not exempt consumers from responsibility for knowingly drinking diet pop that contains AminoSweet/aspartame.


On AminoSweets online home page it has three pictures, one of a happy consumer eating a spoonful of what looks like AminoSweet, another picture is of a happy chemist approving this healthy and delicious sugar substitute, and the last picture is of an assembly line filling plastic bottles full of delicious-healthy AminoSweet products. So, according to the manufacturer, AminoSweet will put a smile on your face (while it slowly kills you from the inside). Presentation is everything to the consumer. Wake up people, drink water and stop feeding the machine!
