Aspartame - Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World
If the video won't play, click here to watch
This is the documentary that Coca-Cola and Pepsi don't want you to see. The sweet neuro-toxic chemical "aspartame" was pushed through the FDA by Donald Rumsfeld's Searle corporation and now appears in over 7,000 different foods including almost all sodas and chewing gums. Aspartame poisoning has been linked to headaches, fatigue, abdominal/chest pains, anxiety attacks, severe mood swings, sleep disorders, depression, seizures, memory loss, Alzheimer's disease, birth defects, mental retardation, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors and much more.
Aspartame: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You
I actually overheard two guys yesterday drinking Coke Zero. One said, "so there's no sugar in this? But it's just as sweet as usual." The other guy gives a cursory look at the ingredients on the can and says, "yeah, there must be some sweet chemical in here instead that's probably worse for you than sugar." Then he lifts it to his lips and finishes off the can. Epic apathetic fail.
