Is there aspartame in iced tea?! because if there is my neuro has me drinking decaffeinated iced tea now, & it's helped incredibly with getting rid of my headaches. my neuro calls my a "iced tea junkie", & my best friends have nicknamed me ice tea, since i drink it so much.lol
Nope...I was wrong...Splenda does have this in it. It has been known to cause seizures too. I better stay away from it. There is something that they recommend called "Just like suger" that is not suppose to trigger seizures.
I have heard that this is bad for epileptics to take. I use Splenda, but do not have problems from this. I don't think Splenda has this in it though.
You probably already know that aspartame is a no-no. But just in case you weren’t sure why, here are the reasons and the scandal…
For 16 years, the FDA refused to approve aspartame. In fact, the FDA’s own toxicologist told Congress that: “Without a shadow of a doubt, aspartame can cause brain tumors and brain cancer and violated the Delaney Amendment, which forbids putting anything in food that is known to cause cancer.” — FDA Toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross
It was finally accepted (for political reasons that are too scandalous to write about here) and here are the results:
For starters, medical authorities estimate that aspartame has brought more complaints to the FDA than any other additive. Specifically, over the years, various reports have implicated aspartame in headaches, memory loss, seizures, vision loss, coma, and cancer. It also appears to worsen or mimic the symptoms of such conditions as fibromyalgia, MS, lupus, ADD, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue, and depression…
In fact, aspartame is responsible for 75 percent of such complaints to that agency. And, after receiving some 10,000 consumer complaints, the FDA compiled a list of 92 symptoms linked to aspartame — including death.
WHY? Because aspartame attacks your body at the cellular level so it can negate all kinds of medications Americans take, including antidepressants, Coumadin, cardiac drugs, hormones, insulin, vaccines, and many others.
In short, it is a deadly neurotoxic drug masquerading as a harmless additive.
