[food] Goodbye chewing gums? =(

Conscience from Sweatshop Union raps:
"(...) And our souls will be numb if we take this beating
Harass your brain with aspartame, MacDonald's beef, and acid rain"

Aspartame is the second most widely used artificial sweetener in the world. It is found in more than 6,000 products including carbonated and powdered soft drinks, hot chocolate, chewing gum, candy, desserts, yogurt, and tabletop sweeteners, as well as some pharmaceutical products like vitamins and sugar-free cough drops. More than 200 million people worldwide consume it. The sweetener has been used for more than 30 years, having first been approved by the FDA in 1974. Studies of the carcinogenicity of aspartame performed by its producers have been negative.

Quote from article. More on youtube, also in polish.


  1. Aspartam jest 1500 razy słodszy od sacharozy, a sacharoza jest o 1/3 słodszy od glukozy.
    A sacharyna jest jeszcze ponad 2 razy słodsza od aspartamu ;)

    Ja tam żuję gumę tylko jak mnie ktoś częstuje XD

  2. ja do niedawna żułem nałogowo, ale przez ten film o aspartamie mi się odechciało.
