If you put the blue sweetener in your coffee or regularly chug cans of Diet Coke, listen up! A British study just published in the Archives of Public Health raises new questions about the safety of aspartame.
A meta-analysis of the 154 studies that the European Food Safety Authority used to certify aspartame as safe in 2013 questions the validity of the “it’s perfectly safe!” conclusion. The researchers conclude that many of the studies were flawed and they question whether or not conflicts of interest and corruption may have played a role in the “thumbs up” for aspartame.
Once again, this finding should make all of us moderate our use of all artificial sweeteners. If you use the, try to rotate your selections whether they be the Blues (Equal), the Pinks (Sweet ‘N Low), the Yellows (Splenda), or, yes, even the Greens (Truvia).
