Another research that puts the emphasis on the danger of acesulfame and aspartame. This time for the brain.

How much the evidence produced by the Ramazzini Institute - so far never considered sufficient, at least by EFSA, to take action - comes a study conducted by a pool of Mexican scientists, led by Anayelly Solis-Medina to shake the waters of the substitutes of the most consumed sugar in the world.

"In this study - the authors explain - we analyzed whether the chronic consumption of aspartame or potassium acesulfame at an early age produces histological alterations, astrogliosis and reduced neuronal vitality, in the hippocampus, in the prefrontal cortex, in the amygdala and in the hypothalamus of the male Wistar rats ".

A histological analysis was performed on rats that consumed aspartame or potassium acesulfame for 90 days, beginning the consumption of sweeteners immediately after weaning. And what the researchers found was that the consumption of aspartame or potassium acesulfame favored morphological changes in the neurons including the increase in the pycnotic nuclei and vacuolization in all areas of the brain studied. In essence, the chronic consumption of these sweeteners from the early stages of development and during long periods, can promote neural changes, astrogliosis (increase in the number of astrocytes in the nervous system) and decrease neuronal viability.

Who knows, at least in this case, the European Authority does not decide to take again the risks involved in taking these sugar substitutes.
