Sodium Cyclamate, an #artificialsweetener, originally brought to market as a flavoring ingredient in drugs was designated #GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by the #FDA and its uses expanded, first into table sugars, then into many foods. By 1969 there were $1 billion in annual sales of cyclamate. However, by that time animal studies had shown that very high doses of cyclamates, at levels found in canned diet sodas, led to higher rates of bladder cancer in rats. What else has the FDA designated as GRAS or generally regarded as safe, but is in fact dangerous for you?
