One thought on “Aspartame-Induced Fibromyalgia

  1. I am very critical about this! Meta-Analysis of over 200 studies done by the EFSA have shown, that there is no link to such kind of complications with aspartame. For me that sounds logic since aspartame is 2 amino acids and a methyl link that will become methanol on a dose lower then in fruit consumption. Also the concentrations of aspartame consumed are in such low, that the dont shift amino acid balance at all. For me, there is no logic explanation why it should be harmful than tricking the system on sugar/sweet taste.

    I am a little dissapointed since I highly respect the work of Dr. Greger on his page! However this are case reports from a few people. Thats a small hint so you can try out to avoid aspartame when beeing diagnosed with fibromyalgia. But this is no evidence at all. A placebo could very likely induce the same effects since fibromyalgia is a very undefined disease that is often diagnosed for “not feeling well in your body” and one of the diseases that is linked the most with psychosomatic symtoms.

    Therefore, be very ciritcal on this one!
