Thoughts on Aspartame


#1

good, bad, ok? what does the research say on aspartame?


#2

I figure there are a lot worse things you could be ingesting. If it’s a toss-up between getting cancer in 80 years, or diabetes in 10, I’ll opt for the former.

I do my best to avoid consuming it more than I have to. If I had to choose between coke or diet coke I would choose diet. I do make sure to take advantage of cannabis and it’s anti-tumorous properties though.


#4

I drink ~6 diet mountain dews a day.

gotta live fast homie, aspartame is some serious shit.


#5

Use Splenda(sucralose) or Stevia instead.


#6

stay as far away as possible…


#7

It’s neuro toxic, so it’s bad for your brain.
Stay away!

bad advice. those will wreck ur intestines over time. aspartame ftw!


#9

A couple packets a day is not going to kill you or rot your brain.


#10

I’d rather use Stevia or crumple up Pauline Nordin’s panties in a shaker to give it a little…sweetness.

So I decided to try Stevia… in my coffee this morning, and it tasted like ass. No thanks
