Actually diet soda with aspartame is the most dangerous. This is what Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said after the first Ramazzini study was done in 2005 showing aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen. "The new study released in the European Journal of oncology by Morando Soffritti and co-workers should terrify mothers and all those consuming aspartame sweetened products. This was a carefully done study which clearly demonstrated a statistically significant increase in several types of lymphomas and leukemias in rats. Both of these malignancies have increased significantly in this country since the widespread use of aspartame.
"This study confirmed the previous study by Dr. Trocho and co-workers, which also found the formaldehyde breakdown product of aspartame to be damaging to cellular DNA and that this damage was accumulative. The type of damage was a duplicate of that associated with cancers. Along with this most recent study, this means that drinking a single diet cola sweetened with aspartame every day could increase one's risk of developing a lymphoma or leukemia.
"They also found an increased incidence of malignant brain tumors, even though it was not statistically significant. This does not mean there is no association to brain tumors, since only the animals exposed to aspartame developed the tumors. With children and pregnant women drinking the largest amount of diet colas, this puts their children at the greatest risk of developing one of these horrible diseases. Their study found that even low doses of aspartame could cause these malignancies; yet, the higher the dose, the more cancers that were seen
. "Since aspartame can increase obesity and may even cause the metabolic syndrome that affects 48 million Americans, there is no reason to ever consume this product. At the least it should be immediately banned from all schools."
As to cancer aspartame has been linked to all types of cancer, from brain cancer to leukemia and multiple myeloma, and as to heart disease aspartame causes an irregular heart rhythm and interacts with all cardiac medication according to the late Dr. H. J. Roberts who wrote the 1000 page medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic", http://www.amazon.com He also says it damages the cardiac conduction system and causes sudden cardiac death.
