Aspartame and The Brain
Aspartame is the most widely used artificial sweetener and you may know it better as NutraSweet or Equal. It is in Diet sodas, sugar free products and some medicine.

It has also been linked to some serious health problems. Cancer, mood disorders, Alzheimer's disease and dementia to name just a few.  

Aspartame is broken down in the body to methanol which is converted to formaldehyde.

If you’re diet soda drinker and want to ease off the soda, you can check out Zevia soda. It's sweetened with Stevia.

Still need the sweet fix? Honey, maple syrup and coconut sugar are all great alternatives. They are broken down differently in the body which make them okay in moderation.
