Study: No Aspartame-Cancer Link

Study: No Aspartame-Cancer Link

Diet soda lovers may be able to sip a little easier, thanks to a new study that shows that the artificial sweetener aspartame does not raise the risk of cancer.

Last year, an Italian study of rats linked low doses of aspartame the sweetener in NutraSweet, Equal, and thousands of consumer products to leukemia and lymphoma.

But the new study conducted in people, not rats found no such link. Nor did the popular sugar substitute raise the risk of brain cancer, says researcher Unhee Lim, Ph.D., of the National Cancer Institute.

The findings were presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research here.

Check this out...and there are many more sites like this one. And if you think we're getting better about what artificial sweetners we put into out food you can always do a search on sucralose (splenda).

There has to be something seriously wrong with these products when on your first visit to an OB/GYN when you're pregnant the Dr. says "absolutely NO artificial sweetners"

I'll take a teaspoon of sugar in my morning coffee...thank you!

I agree, if we can't take it when we are pregnant, then you KNOW that there is something wrong with it. Aspartame in more than a moderate amount gives me terrible headaches and other symptoms. Bad stuff for some people, but what about the people who don't have any symptoms from it and ingest more and more. I guess time will tell, huh?

Really? So if I get pregnant I'm suppose to stay away from this stuff? I had never heard that before. Is that standard procedure for your doctor to tell you this... kind of like ... don't smoke, drink and lay off the bar fights?

That's exactly what my OB/GYN said to me. Stay away from the artificial sweetners, cigarettes, alcohol and go light on the caffeine.

I knew about the obvious stuff like cigs and alcohol, but the artificial sweetners is news to me. You learn something new everyday!

Agreement

I agree... Stay away from ANY and ALL ARTIFICIAL foods and/or additives.

Not to mention low fat stuff. Have you noticed the size of people since we all switched to 'low fat'? Ridiculous. You'd think that someone would catch on to the fact that it isn't working. Duh...
