Aspartame, a sweetener found in various foods and soft drinks, has been officially classified as a human carcinogen, it has been reported.

This classification is often confusing because it does not indicate whether the potential risk is large or small.

Aloe vera, diesel, and Asian pickled vegetables are classified as “probably carcinogenic.”

The International Agency for Research on Cancer will make the announcement on July 14, the BBC understands.
