Don’t Drink Diet Soda Until You Read This Report…

Pouring-soda-300x199Each year, Americans consume about 5,250 tons of aspartame in total, of which about 86 percent (4,500 tons) is from the consumption of diet sodas. Diet soda is the largest dietary source of aspartame  in the U.S. A study recently published at the beginning of December 2012 links the consumption of Aspartame to increased risk of Lymphoma and Leukemia. As few as one diet soda daily may increase the risk for leukemia in men and women dramatically. The study was conducted by the Channing Division of Network Medicine, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA and Nutrition, Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, MA. The study was a follow up after a 22 year period of data collection including health frequent dietary and health check ups of the study group.

  1. Great article Doc. We talk about Aspartame to every single patient on their first or second visit in our St Louis office. A few people are aware but over 90% of them had no idea. Not only Lymphoma/Leukemia which is bad enough, but headaches, fatigue, depression, multiple sclerosis type symptoms and dementia/Alzheimer’s symptoms as well.
    There are obviously a lot of unhealthy chemicals/poisons out there but we teach about Aspartame every single day to all
    patients because it usually makes a big difference in their health within a few short weeks.
    Many gums will have Aspartame in them as well as other products. We all just have to become label readers and also teach our kids about avoiding this now.
    Thanks for helping to spread the message that the world needs to hear.
