Modern poisons undergo a makeover

It's interesting that when an ingestible's dangers become more and more public that rather than take it off the market and work on making it safe, the product's creators give it a new name, new packaging and a new advertising campaign.  I suppose you can't really blame them, though.  Because most people don't do much research into what goes into their food.

High-fructose corn syrup, for example, now being labelled as corn syrup.  This is because the harmful effects of fructose are becoming more widely reported.  Hell, if it's in the mainstream news you can't really deny it any more.

Then you have aspartame, which has now been branded AminoSweet.  There's a wide body of research showing how bad aspartame is for the brain.

Just goes to show that you need to be more aware than ever what's going into your mouth these days.
