How is it possible for a sweet soda to be sugar-free? The answer could only be aspartame. This sweetener present in diet colas, powdered juices and many other products is now becoming popular, and people are usually attracted to the catchy slogan No Sugar or 100% Sugar-free. What most people dont know is how this sweetener could be so hazardous to ones health.
Doctors have now found out that there is such a thing as aspartame poisoning and victims dont even know that the aspartame of the colas or juices they drink is the culprit.
Heres one reason why aspartame could do serious damage to ones health:
When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants. The methanol toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus. Many people were being diagnosed in error.

Here are some of the symptoms that one could possibly have an aspartame poisoning:
Cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, and memory loss. Now these symptoms could often be relieved or reduced by simply taking pain relievers and not minding its cause.
So the next time you open that sugar-free diet soda, think about how that sweet poison could have long term destruction on your body. Drinks with aspartame are naturally tempting because of its taste, but if you really have to be serious about staying in good health, your fondness or addiction to such drinks could be worth giving up.
