ANH Feature: EFSA Defends Controversial Sweetener Aspartame (Again)
EFSA says no cancer risk and maintains approval of aspartame
Aspartame, also identified as E951 on label ingredient lists, is the technical name for the non-nutritive artificial sweetener sold under the brand names NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, Equal-Measure, Canderel and various other names.

This one day event is designed to explore some of the clinically relevant evolving events in microbiology, mucosal immunity and functional medicine as it relates to inflammation and health. The presenters are well known for their many years of work in research, analysis, practice and lecturing. They will present substantive evidence of these evolving trends and how they impact on clinical decisions, describing where evidence is preliminary, novel, or of greater substantiation. The day will have a strong clinical bias and provide a welcome opportunity for questions and answers.Click for further information
