April Mazur TR 12:30pm Aspartame: False Claims of Negative Effects Despite the fact that Aspartame has been approved for consumption multiple times by the FDA and also approved in 100 other countries, many people still believe it is a threat to its consumers today, though it is obviously not. Discovered in 1965, Aspartame is a low-calorie sweetener that is much sweeter than sucrose, or Splenda. It is different from all other artificial sweeteners in that the body breaks it down completely to its components. Today it is used as a replacement of standard sugar in over 6000 foods and beverages on the market which are consumed by over 200 million people around the world. The popularity of aspartame is contributed to the many benefits it provides. With so many people becoming more and more calorie-conscious, aspartame is an ideal choice for those people who want to cut down on calories but still enjoy food with sweet taste.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
