AminoSweet is Aspartame -- Avoid it!

There is currently a PR campaign to rebrand Aspartame as AminoSweet.  This is really good news; it shows that we are having an effect on the use of this dangerous chemical.

You may have heard that the methanol from aspartame is no more dangerous than the methanol from fruits.  This is a carefully crafted lie.  Here is a very detailed discussion of the question of methanol metabolism from fruits and aspartame.

If you'd like to read more about aspartame, here's my article on LesTout.com and a recent article by Dr. Mercola.

Please avoid aspartame as NutriSweet, AminoSweet, or any other name they come up with for this unhealthy chemical.

Take a deep breath,

Dr. Ron
