Aspartame is expected to be declared by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as “possibly carcinogenic to humans,” on July 14, as per media sources.

Aspartame is one of the most common sweeteners and is widely used in low-calorie food and drinks like Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi because, although it does contain calories like regular sugar, it’s used in lesser quantities because it’s 200 times sweeter.

Diet coke is seen as the lesser evil and is a go-to drink for most weight watchers and fitness enthusiasts​. Aspartame is also, used in ice cream, chewing gum, cereals, low-calorie coffee sweeteners, puddings, sugar-free desserts, sugar-free jams, and various other low-sugar or sugar-free packaged foods.
