Many years ago, after having associates that were suffering headaches after drinking coke, I started looking into things such as caffeine. Caffeine in itself ain’t the greatest thing to be putting into your body in high amounts, but along my travels, I found that most of these associates were drinking coke zero and not actual full sugared coca-cola. I started looking into what replaced the sugar content and came across the sweetener code 951. Whenever a company of any sought does not want you to know what is in their products, they number code some of the ingredients and this is exactly what they did with coke zero. 951 it turns out, is known as aspartame. After looking into aspartame, I came to know exactly what the below websites are about to tell you. Take a look and you might want to think twice next time about buying something off the shelf without knowing the number codes, that are designed to hide something nasty.
From Sweet Poison:
Aspartame may trigger, mimic, or cause the following illnesses:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Mercury sensitivity from Amalgam fillings
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Just to name a few. Now let’s take a look at another website that shows some of the other nasties in coke zero.
From The Zero Movement:
2005 Study links Aspartame with cancer – available at the US government’s NIH website
From the Conclusions… “Our study shows that Aspartame is a multi-potential carcinogenic compound whose carcinogenic effects are evident even at a daily dose of 20 mg/kg bw, much less than the current ADI for humans in Europe (40 mg/kg bw) and in the United States (50 mg/kg bw).
