Did you know that a widely used sugar substitute, found in diet sodas (among other places) can cause strokes, cancer, Alzheimer's, and even premature labor? It's called aspartame, and it's marketed as a "healthy" alternative to sugar- but it is incredibly toxic!
Check out this great article from Dr. Mercola explaining the dangers of aspartame, particularly relating to its use in diet sodas- based on a new study finding increased risk of strokes with those consuming diet sodas regularly.
Have a great weekend everyone!
