This Is Your Brain On Aspartame

This Is Your Brain On Aspartame | Sports Medicine | Scoop.it
The FDA claims aspartame is safe. Researchers claim it causes memory loss, mood changes, and depression. Who are you going to believe?

 

Controversy continues to rage over the artificial sweetener aspartame.  Since it was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1981, aspartame has made its way into more than 6,000 food items.

 

The FDA claims aspartame is safe but has set an acceptable daily intake of no more than 50 mg per kilogram of body weight.  In other words, an adult weighing 165 pounds should consume no more than 3,750 mg of aspartame a day.  A can of diet soda typically contains about 180 mg of the chemical.  That means the FDA's "safe" limit equates to about 21 cans of diet soda per day.

 

But is any level of aspartame really safe?

Exercising On an Empty Stomach: The Surprising Benefits

Exercising On an Empty Stomach: The Surprising Benefits | Sports Medicine | Scoop.it
There aren’t many fitness topics as controversial as this one question: Is it bad to work out on an empty stomach? Here, Greatist dismantles some old myths, once and for all.

 

It’s a debate that’s raged since the first weight was lifted: Is it better or worse to work out on an empty stomach? Wars have been waged and nations have fallen (okay, that’s a slight exaggeration) during the eternal battle of fed versus fasted exercise, but it’s time for this madness to end. We have the final answer.

 

Well, not the final answer. Different people work out best under different circumstances, and deciding whether someone should eat before training can be like telling them what time of day to work out or what their diet should look like in general—it depends on what suits the needs of a given individual. But itis time to dismantle some old myths.

If you think that sports medicine is just for Olympic or other elite athletes, think again! This medical discipline can also benefit people who exercise infrequently. It also helps “regular” amateur athletes who suffer with pain or who are forced to temporarily give up an activity because of injury.
