America’s Deadliest Sweetner Seeks Facelift

Aspartame producer Ajinomoto is launching a new initiative that will rebrand the sweetener as “AminoSweet.”

Aspartame is used in many foods and beverages marketed as low calorie or sugar-free. However, its reputation has been clouded somewhat by studies that have investigated reports of ill effects.

Just to remind you, the side effects of aspartame can include:

* Headache
* Change in vision
* Convulsions and seizures
* Hallucination
* Nausea and vomiting
* Joint pain

It can cause many, many other problems as well.
