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.

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 maintain annual profits of $12 billion by promoting AminoSweet as a “natural” product. The company used similar strategies to promote Aspartame.
Americans are not 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.
