A new scientific study reveals that the artificial sweatener "aspartame" may be one of the most damaging vectors for the widespread "dumbing down" of humanity. Published in AJTCAM (African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines), the study is entitled, "IMPACT OF ASPARTAME CONSUMPTION ON NEUROTRANSMITTERS IN RAT BRAIN."

The results of the study found a dose-dependent relationship between aspartame consumption and the destruction of neurotransmitters - brain chemicals necessary for the function of neurons.
The conclusion of the study found that, "Consumption of [aspartame] for a long time increased oxidative stress in brain tissue and disruption in neurotransmitters that affect physiological functions."
Possible solutions & alternatives: Ideally, stay away from any added sugars. We do not need to add extra sweetnes to foods. Buf if you must sweeten your foods, use all-natural, unprocessed sugar or go for Stevia.
