First -- -- this time a year a lot of people start thinking about losing weight oh yes we do.
Many -- artificial sweeteners that contain aspartame to cut down on sugar intake -- -- -- a lot of different studies and reports on this.
Not only in the United States -- internationally everyone wants to know -- are they safe.
I gotta tell -- -- wanna talk to what -- support to him.
I've been on the show for years there -- in the month goes by.
But that I get -- -- without me getting a letter from Germany saying I don't know how the FDA.
Can approve -- -- partner.
That's a sweetener.
That's a 150.
Times sweeter than sugar you find it in chewing -- soft drinks -- serial everywhere.
The FDA and the European safety people have said that -- -- dame is safe.
They have approved it -- you use in there in the United States and in Europe.
And there's no question that legally.
It's safe so how come so many people write to me and tell each other.
Including my son for example who when he uses as -- -- his hand swell.
How do these people who worry about cancer and about only other thing that -- say.
As -- -- can cause.
Well it's very interesting that a group of doctors has finally decided independently.
The FDA and the organizations.
To look into this question.
They believe that there are some people not everybody not even a -- of people.
But there are some people who genetically.
Or for other reasons.
Cannot tolerate -- to him and they are gonna take a hundred people.
Fifty then fifty of whom can tolerate aspartame fifty who get symptoms and see what the difference is between them.
So that you will be able to tell whether you can safely take this there's sweetener.
You know as -- tame.
When you break it down into a test tube.
And another toxic substance we don't know whether this happens in the body do.
But it happens in the test tube.
These doctors are going to do that study and I hope that within a few months we will have an answer.
And I suspect if they will come up with the fact that as part -- is say for most people.
But for some it is not and they will tell you if you are one of them.
Our -- and uninteresting stimulus -- about that.
