Aspartame is safe, study says
Date:9/11/2007

ar exceed the acceptable daily intake, on animals and humans. In addition to healthy adults and children, studies also looked at effects on adults and children with diabetes, hyperactive and sugar-sensitive children, and people with Parkinsons disease and depression.

The Expert Panels evaluation concluded the following:

Overall:

Aspartame is safe at current levels of consumption, which remain well below established ADI levels, even among high user sub-populations. No credible evidence was found that aspartame is carcinogenic, neurotoxic or has or any other adverse effects when consumed even at levels many times the established ADI levels.

Specifically:

  • Based on results of several long term studies, aspartame does not have carcinogenic or cancer-promoting activity.
  • Results of extensive investigation in studies that mimic human exposure do not show any evidence of neurological effects, such as memory and learning problems, of aspartame consumption.
  • Overall the weight of the evidence indicates that aspartame has no effect on behavior, cognitive function, neural function or seizures in any of the groups studied.
  • Aspartame has not been shown to have adverse effects on reproductive activity or lactation.
  • Studies conclude that aspartame is safe for use by diabetics and may aid diabetics in adhering to a sugar-free diet.
  • There is no evidence to support an association between aspartame consumption and obesity. On the contrary, when used in multidisciplinary weight control programs, aspartame may actually aid in long-term weight control.
  • The studies provide no evidence to support an association between aspartame and brain or hematopoietic tumor development.
