Aspartame is 200 times sweetener than sugar and is used in over 5 thousand products worldwide. Aspartame is a man made chemical made from two synthetic amino acids. When consumed it acts as an exciter toxin as Dr. Russel Blaylock has explained. An exciter toxin over stimulates neurons and therefore causes nerve damage and brain damage. It is this over stimulating effect that tricks the brain into sweetness. Aspartame causes weight gain because it stops the trigger of feeling full. It also causes weight gain because the liver has less energy for fat burning when aspartame is being processed. There are hundreds of studies that give conflicting reports about its safety. Those funded by the aspartame industry suggested aspartame is safe while most other studies conclude that aspartame can cause health problems especially with the nervous system. And that is why you should avoid aspartame. If you like to learn more about why to eat organic food and how to live naturally you can read this informative book The Beginners Guide to Natural Living
