Five Facts Natural News Got Wrong About Aspartame

A sugar substitute is a compound that has a sweet taste like table sugar, but contains significantly less calories. There are many different varieties on the market, but the ones which get the majority of the negative attention by far are saccharin, sucralose and aspartame. Some think that these compounds are responsible for the increased cancer and autism rates in the west, whilst others believe that these compounds will flat-out kill you. The internet is ripe with interesting theories and health warnings about these artificial sweeteners, and I have decided that I am going to cover each of these sugar substitutes one by one, starting with Aspartame.
