The previous entry described aspartame, a carcinogenic sweetener, that can alter dna and cause baby mice to be born with holes in their brains. This ingredient is very common and hard to avoid.
Once again, it causes cancer and alters dna in controlled experiments. Aspartame is not correlated with cancer and altering dna, it has been found to be the sole cause of cancer and dna alteration in controlled experiments.
Common products with aspartame, or, common products that can increase the likelihood you will develop cancer:

It is an assumption that products for sale at delis and grocery stores are safe, but unfortunately, they definitely are not. It may feel like a burden to judge the safety of your food and beverage, especially when there are agencies created to do so for you. These agencies are currently not under the best direction, and in the meantime, you can check labels yourself.
If we stop buying these products, they will change, and more healthy products will become available.
