Do you think aspartame is dangerous and would you reccommened it for people to consume or tell them to stay away fro it and why?
Thank you for your nutrition question. I don't recommend using aspartame daily however, using it occasionally should be alright. The reason is that the use of aspartame is a very controversial subject and there are not enough studies to show it's safety for long term use. The Food and drug administration receives hundreds of complaints about artificial sweeteners such as aspartame daily. The side effects include headache, nausea, dizziness, and much more. Have you heard of stevia powder? It is a herbal sweetner with no known side effects.
