The other day my son asked me to put orange squash on the shopping list. If I can't buy organic I will go for a "good" brand i.e. one that doesn't contain aspartame (that's NutraSweet to you). Robinsons enjoys a good reputation so I automatically reached for a bottle and read the label. The squash I chose was not reduced sugar or sugar free (they are the ones that contain aspartame). Imagine my disgust when I read that the "ordinary" squash contained not only sugar but...ASPARTAME!!!
Why have both?
Why am I so upset about it?
Because aspartame, which masquerades as a food additive, contains neurotoxins and fucks up people's endocrine systems is why!
