Aspartam och rökning

Läser en mycket underhållande, intressant bok som heter "Skinny Bitch" som handlar om tillsatsämnen och allt annat onödigt skräp vi får i oss idag.  Tyckte detta stycke om aspartam var intressant:

"Now don't go patting yourself on the back if you drink diet soda. The stuff is even worse. Aspartame has been blamed for a slew of scary maladies, like arthritis, birth defects, fibromyalgia, Alzheimer's, lupus, multiple sclerosis and diabetes. When methyl alcohol, a component of aspartame, enters your body, it turns into formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is toxic and carcinogenic (cancer-causing). Laboratory scientists use formaldehyde as a disinfectant or preservative. They don't fucking drink it"

Och såhär står det om rökning:
"Cigarettes are for losers. They are so 1989 and totally uncool. Not only do they screw up whole body chemistry, but they also kill your taste buds. It's no wonder you eat shit and garbage. Smoking's out. Give it up"
