    Gum that DOESN'T contain aspartame

    It seems like every gum (besides bubblicious/crazy sugary gum) has aspartame. I'm trying to eliminate aspartame because I think it might be a cause behind my acne.

    Is there a sugar-free or at least low-sugar gum out there that doesn't have aspartame?

    Although anything is possible, it is highly unlikely that aspartame is causing your acne.

    Besides, if you really want to find out, just stop chewing surgarless gum for a few weeks.
    No sir, I don't like it.

    Alright, thanks for the advice. I just have no idea why I am still getting acne... I've been through just about every medication (even a heavy course of accutane), I don't eat junk food, and I wash my face twice a day. It just boggles my mind.

    aspartame is extremely bad for you and you shouldn't be eating it regardless.

    If you have a Whole Foods near you, I know they sell gum made with Xylitol in the checkout lanes.

    As far as the acne, you're still only 18, it has time to pass. I've been there though (everything under the sun, including Accutane, waiting to start it again), I know it sucks.

    Mr. Horse,

    I am the person who did the experiment described at http://www.writerswithoutborders.net/aspartame/. All photos of my results are available on that website for anyone to review.

    Are you aware that the study whose link you provided was paid for by Ajinomoto of Japan, one of the worlds largest aspartame suppliers? In addition, only two of the reviewers performing the study had no ties to the industry. You can read about the conflicts of interest as investigated by Mark Gold, in his article “Aspartame and Manufacturer-Funded Scientific Reviews,” at http://www.holisticmed.com/aspartame/burdock/.

    Also, it appears that you only value experiments done by professional scientists. Then you would not have valued Albert Einstein's theory of relativity that he developed and wrote about when he worked in a patent office. Also, you would not value the work of every amateur scientist who competes each year in the science fairs around this country.

    Are you actually trying to claim that your experiment was unbiased, after you posted this on your website?

    "So why did I undertake another one? In 2001, after learning about the possible dangers of using artificial sweeteners containing aspartame, I became concerned about family members who were drinking large amounts of diet soda containing aspartame. I was worried that they were consuming a chemical that could one day lead to their painful and early deaths--or worse, a walking death due to Alzheimer's, Parkinson?s, or some other debilitating long-term illness brought on by aspartame."

    You certainly make a lot of assumptions about me.

    The one thing I will say about you is that you are a poor scientist.

    Mr. Horse,

    I apologize about making assumptions about you. You are entitled to your opinions, and I think your advice to JerG is good. He should try to stop chewing gum to see if his acne clears up.

    AlienHeat4,

    I agree that I had bias that I thought I might see tumors if I did my own experiment. That's why I spent thousands of my own money on it. If there were no apparent fraud on the part of Searle, the original manufacturer of aspartame, I would never have done the study.

    I'm happy to say that the family member I was most concerned about was eventually swayed by my work.

    The problem as I see it with the Magnuson 2007 report, is that the conflicts of interest were not reported in the media. The scientists that did that study had massive conflicts of interest, that probably gained them millions of dollars over their lifetimes. Whereas I have only gained a family member that I hope will be healthier in the future.

    JerG--

    In my opinion, you are smart to question your gum. My study shows several rats on aspartame with infections, and acne is a form of infection. Also, someone on this forum mentioned that you get very little aspartame from gum. However, the aspartame from gum may go directly into your brain, making the little there is more powerful than aspartame digested through your intestines.

    Page 48 of my report (you can download from my website aspartameexperiment.com as the PDF of Chapter 5) has the following info about aspartame in gum:

    Note: According to the website aspartamekills.com, “In the May 1992
    edition of their journal, Flying Safety, the United States Air Force
    warned all pilots to stay off aspartame, stating: ‘Some people have
    suffered aspartame related disorders with doses as small as that carried
    in a single stick of chewing gum.'”

    According to Jim Bowen, MD, “Aspartame in chewing gum is absorbed
    directly though the buccal mucosa of the tongue, mouth, and gums, making
    it a far worse poisoning than even if it were given intravenously. The
    nerves serving this area and their vascular supply derive directly from the
    brain, so the aspartame absorbed through them goes directly into the
    brain, by-passing the spinal cord and blood brain barrier.”

    I started a multi-generational experiment after completing the one described on my website, but stopped it after realizing that I couldn't provide valid statistics. I did that because I heard that aspartame caused birth defects (yes, another bias). What was interesting is that one of my aspartame males in that study had an eye infection that cleared up after he no longer consumed aspartame. He also had a tumor that fell off.

    Aspartame-free gum is available in health food stores.

    If you try switching to gum without aspartame, let us know if your acne clears up.
