    Diet soda drinkers, rejoice: Report says aspartame is not bad for you
    To put it in perspective: A 150-pound woman could drink 20 12-ounce cans of diet soda a day without exceeding the safety threshold for the artificial sweetener.

    Lots of soda bottles in various flavours all lined up (A long line of unbranded soda bottles in various flavours and colors, the focus on the center of the line.)
    If you can’t quit your mid-afternoon vending machine run, you’re in luck. A new report from the European Food Safety Authority has affirmed the safety of aspartame, which is also OK’d by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, and the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

    To put it in perspective, a 150-pound woman could drink 20 12-ounce cans of diet soda a day without exceeding the safety threshold, according to Dr. Bernadene Magnusun, Senior Scientist and Regulatory Consultant at Cantox Health Sciences International. The EFSA also concluded that aspartame is safe for use by pregnant women, and doesn’t cause cancer, harm the brain or nervous system, or impact cognitive function in adults or kids.

    I find this news very reassuring since although I eat very healthfully, I still sip an occasional diet soda. But if you’re downing diet soft drinks in hopes of losing weight and boosting your health, it’s important to consider what else you’re eating and drinking. The sips alone may not harm you, but if you’re still eating a crummy diet — routine consumption of processed foods, meat and other animal fare, as well as sugary beverages and snacks — it won’t help you much either. This type of menu will lead to a difficult time controlling your weight and an increased risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease, despite your zero-calorie soda habit.

    My advice: If you’re drinking sweetened sodas, switch to diet to save calories (and your teeth). But don’t stop there — make additional improvements by boosting your produce intake and swapping whole grains for refined ones.

    Aspartame still can cause blood sugar issues/cravings. It tricks the body into thinking that sugar is coming in when its not.

    Aspartame doesn’t sound like a good idea:

    Do you have a link to the report? Curious to how many people this was tested on and what period of time?

    Sorry I cannot recommend diet sodas. The study was probably funded by a company that produces aspartame. Stick to non processed foods and God forbid…water. 🙂

    Don’t have a clue of what aspartane is, but I guess anything that comes out of a mass production factory can’t be really healthy.

    Better to have things that grow on trees than stuff thats made in a factory.
