One can of diet soda each day can increase leukemia risks in men and women by 42%, increase multiple myeloma risk in men by 102%, and increase the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma by 31% in men.
In another study focusing on the aspartame-cancer link, there were 48 rats experimented on, up to 67% of all female rats developed tumors roughly the size of golf balls or larger. The male population also suffered, with 21% of males developing similar cancerous growths.
Aspartame is created using genetically modified bacteria. This was confirmed by a Monsanto spokesperson and source.
Aspartame is found in diet drinks, specifically, 86% is in the form of diet sodas. It is important to eliminate “diet” drinks and foods from your consumption. An extra 100 calories derived from “regular” food and drinks is better than “diet” foods and drinks.
