Aspartame is an artificial sweetener which is found in numerous foods. It has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1981. Many experts and scientists believe that it should never have been approved by the FDA as they believe that aspartame can be toxic and people suffer from aspartame allergy. The aspartame has therefore been surrounded by a great deal of controversy as its defenders believe that this aspartame allergy does not even exist.
Coca Cola is arguably the world leading company in the beverage industry. One of the new products they offer is Coke Zero which is highly marketed with a claim that it contains zero calories. However, this product contains a highly controversial ingredient called Aspartame. This chemical, otherwise known as E951, is a widely used artificial sweetener which has been widely believed to be responsible for various health problems such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, migraines, ADHD and brain diseases among others. Also, there were many coke zero allergies reported due to such chemical sweetener. While being approved by the United States Food and Drug Authority in 1981, its effects on humans are being questioned and condemned by a lot of people.
