While government propaganda suggests that the chemicals in drugs are the most hazardous for our health, turns out a few chemicals in our everyday food and drinks have an even worse effect. You may have chosen diet as a healthy lifestyle choice — like diet cola or cookies — but you may be unaware of the dangers of the chemical — aspartame.
Several people still assume that diet drinks are a healthier option as it apparently contains lesser sugar and calories. But what they give up in calories they make up by pushing chemicals into your system that can gradually cause permanent damage.
One the main ingredients in diet sodas like Pepsi and Coca-Cola, Aspartame, is an artificial sweetener that replaces regular sugar. And its slow poison like effects even includes increasing your risk of stroke and dementia.
