An artificial sweetener used in Diet Coke is to undergo an urgent EU safety review.
Aspartame is ingested every day by millions of people around the world in more than 6,000 well-known brands of food, drink and medicine.
However, it has been the subject of a number of studies that appear to show harmful effects on human health.
One recent study linked diet drinks containing aspartame to premature births, while another suggested it could cause cancer.
To date, health watchdogs, including the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA), have ruled out any link to ill-health.
But after several MEPs asked for a new investigation following pressure from European health campaigners, EU Commission officials have now asked the EFSA to bring forward a review that had been planned for 2020.

I knew a woman who put aspartame instead of sugar in the hummingbird feeders. All the hummingbirds around her place died.

It wasn't the aspartame in the feeders, it was the garden gnomes, evertbody knows aspartame is safe.

İmage

There are known gnomes; there are gnomes we know we know.
We also know there are gnome unknowns; that is to say we know there are some gnomes we do not know.
But there are also ungnomes unknowns – the gnomes we don't know we don't know.
