UK Study To Examine Issue Of Aspartame Sensitivity

September 25, 2009: 03:33 AM EST
European food safety authorities ruled long ago that the aspartame is safe for use in diet beverages and other food products. But an ongoing concern about whether some people are overly sensitive to the artificial sweetener has prompted a scientific study by researchers at the University of Hull. According to this BBC News report, some people have reported headaches, dizziness, and vomiting after ingesting the sweetener. One hundred people, half of whom have voiced complaints about aspartame, will participate in the 18-month study.
