Aspartame can cause headache, achy joints, irritability, anxiety, insomnia, nausea, diarrhea and high blood pressure immediately, but can also impair the immune system, cause pain or blindness in both eyes, severe depression, abdominal pain, pms and menstrual pain and changes, skin allergies, swelling & bloating, hyperactivity in children, peptic ulcers, irreversible brain damage, cancer, lupus, fibromyalgia, just to name a few and even death.
Eliminate Aspartame from your diet. Do not consume these sugar substitutes. Just because something has a ‘sugar free alternative’ doesn’t make it a ‘healthy’ substitute to sugar. Though refined sugar is terrible for the human body, consumers would actually be better off eating “regular” sugar than aspartame containing substitutes.
