Aspartame: why it's not so sweet

Aspartame, the artificial sweetener found in diet colas and other drinks and foods, can cause sudden, and sometimes fatal, shortness of breath, researchers have found

Aspartame, the artificial sweetener found in diet colas and other drinks and foods, can cause sudden, and sometimes fatal, shortness of breath, researchers have found.

They discovered a link to aspartame among 110 people who suffered severe dyspnoea. Most were weight-conscious women aged in their 20s and 40s. Symptoms, and attacks, stopped when aspartame was taken out of their diet. One woman, who died at the age of 27 from aspartame-linked dyspnoea, was later found to have high blood pressure.

Researchers believe it is vital for patients to stop all aspartame consumption especially if they already have high blood pressure, or about to begin taking a course of drugs for high blood pressure. (Source: Roberts HJ. Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic. West Palm Beach, USA. Sentinel Press,2001).
