Soft drink giant Pepsi will add aspartame again to the light variations of cola. Associated Press reports that the artificial sweetener is going to be used in some drinks in September.
In some countries the aspartame sweetener is known as it could cause cancer. The artificial sweetener has a negative image, so the sales of diet drinks have declined dramatically.
Aspartame has been linked to cancer in laboratory mice, but the US Food Authority FDA says that more than 100 studies that show that the sweetener is safe. Coca-Cola is trying to convince consumers with an ad campaign that the sweetener is not be harmful to health.
According to the study by Dr. Mercola, aspartame has very harmful side effects such as cancer. This variant is considered as one of the most dangerous artificial sweetener. The components of aspartame can lead to a wide variety of ailments. “If a product is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and composed of natural ingredients, would you assume it is safe to consume?” Dr. Mercola said.
From the recently released European patent on aspartame appears that the artificial sweetener are made from droppings of a genetically modified variant of the E. coli bacterium, which is also known as poo bacteria in the vernacular.
The poop of the bacteria is the main ingredient of the artificial sweetener. The bacteria get a lot of food so they excrete a lot of feces.
