Aspartame is so many foods that children eat, increasing the number of those with ADHD. In large quantities it has been linked with brain damage. We already have enough issues with food in the U.S., this just adds to the picture tremendously.
Agree with triangle.128k. There are other good reasons to buy organic, but GMOs are not dangerous. As for obesity banning one sugar substitute is not the solution. Everyone eating better is. Elimination of food deserts. A large switch in eating habits, and GETTING OUT OF OUR CARS!
GMO foods do what they say they will. They reduce chemical pesticide use, increased crop yields, and yes - increase profit for farmers. Discussing the negatives is all fine, but the propaganda is way out of wack with the reality.
@mystery_man43 - I am very liberal, but not part of the Green Party. That this issue I am not in-line with every other liberal is not odd. Regardless, GMOs scares have been mostly hype, with no actual science. Look, my wife buys all organic. I like it, it is MUCH better... Taste. We, however, like typical Americans can get just about anything we want to eat, and can afford it. A great deal of the world cant, and they are starving. GMOs have many benefits. This is not some conspiracy modeled after a Captain Planet villain. GMOs do what they say they are doing, and health risks are simply unproven. One of the oddities of this argument is, it mixes some Christians (who think it is anti-god or something) with liberals (who want to buy from local farms etc) and makes a monster of misunderstanding and propaganda.
