In the interests of full disclosure, I like diet pop. But I always have friends who say “you know that has aspartame in it right? That’ll kill ya!”
Well, a new study has found that might not be the case.
Researchers looked at an old report from 1996 that said that aspartame caused a rise in brain tumors between 1975 and 1992.
One problem. aspartame only became popular in 1982.
They also found that the rats that were used in the study were fed the human equivalent of 8 and 2,000 cans of soda daily.
8 cans – people might drink that – but 2000, not likely.
Even the American Cancer Society says that there’s no link between aspartame and cancer.
So, if you’re like me – and have friends always warning you about Diet Pop, just show them this!! That’s what I’ll be doing. 🙂
