Aspartame ( E number E951 ) contains a substance that has been found to destroy brain tissue in rats fed on it.

It contains Methanol - wood alchohol, so your brain gets doped up on it, hence, perhaps, the addictive affect of what was originally developed as a drug by G.D Searle pharmaceuticals but when accidentally found to taste sweet was sold to Monsanto (that company famous for genetically modifiying foods) and marketed after corruption got it passed in the USA and hence Europe, to the general trusting public in a variety of food and drink products (a safer alternative, and there are many, include the banned in the UK but widely used in India plant based extract of Stevia.)

This is really bad stuff!

STOP drinking and eating it and don't ever give it to children!

It will retard and damage their brains'.

All the best, and to your good health,

Why do scientists like to tell people that nice tasting things are bad for us, cant they test the damaging pychological effects of brussel sproats on kids?

Its been tested on rats, which makes the validity of it worth ..... . Animal testing for supposed good/ bad effects of drugs is alot of rubbish, and while I don't really want to debate the scientific aspects of animal testing (i managed to fill up 15 pages debating with people on it on another board), its not to be taken as a fact.

Although there was one test with rats were giving them substances similar to weed made them have a higher intelligance, I don't know how this was tested but it dosen't sound to bad.

I thought it was aspartame, not sugar they were talking about?

Close enough, it goes in you food to make it taste good and dope you up.

To raise a more obvious objection to this stuff- it tastes bloody foul.

I checked in my cupboard, the only thing it was in was lemsip -which does taste horrible, tho it might tast worse without it, i dont know.

So basicly its just an artificial sweetner?

They always taste nasty - stuff like diet coke etc.

Yeah, on this morning earlier they were talking about how bad E numbers are as if it was news, and saying that some fruit and veg is kept in supermarkets for up to a year before being sold, how else do you think you can get fruit all year round.

Lemsip is really bad for you.

If you feel sick have hot water and juice from half a lemon. (and have a paracetomol too if you feel really bad, but just the one)

Yeah it's in all the diet drinks, which I never buy so don't have to worry about. All those drinks have aspartame*

*contains a source of phenylalanine

on the ingredients label

The warning is due to this condition:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenylketonuria

which requires a diet low in phenylalanine. I did nutrition as an elective for my degree (because it required turning up twice and very little coursework), and checked aspartame out a bit because of that.

Not sure about this methanol stuff though.

Can't stand the taste either, but tend to boycott Coke etc anyway.

Methanol's toxic, it's what they put in meths to make it undrinkable.

And its the stuff that turns you blind in moonshine.

methanol is poisonous but you can drink it, they put a regurgitant into meths so that you can't drink it.

Yeah. I think the thing about meths is - it's meths!

It also means you dont have to pay duty on it. Which is nice.

100ml of methanol will kill you nice and dead, but by the time you've drunk half that you'll probably wish you were dead anyway.

Aspertamine is bad but whatever additives they put into caffeine free diet coke is worse.. I swear that shit can give you a hang over worse than drinking a bottle of whiskey.
