Found in thousands of commonly consumed food products, aspartame is the most widely used intense sweetener in the world. As soon as it appeared in the 1960s in the United States, doubts arose about its harmfulness and its marketing was immediately marred by conflicts of interest. For pregnant women, studies have shown that even at low doses, aspartame increases the risk of preterm birth. In addition, there are very strong presumptions that the consumption of aspartame leads to an increased risk of occurrence of various cancers.
