Re: Relationship Between Artificial Sweetners & Depression??
Aspartame is poison and bad, bad, bad....there's lots of information on it. Do a serious search on side effects.
It's addictive, it fools the pancreas to release insulin (but no sugar in which to use up the insulin) which causes a release of brain chemicals, cannot be digested, irritates the intestines, causes diarrhea,...etc.......
I don't think that's the cause of "depression", but it may change something in the body/brain..etc that can cause a change in mood.
That's great that you're feeling better....chocolate works for me!
Reconsider about the aspartame, just stop using it.
It's all a matter of perspective!
