I don't believe aspartame is bad at all. It is mainly urban legend. There have been FDA studies that showed no link between aspartame and any diseases. Sure, it might be some big conspiracy, but why would the government cover up aspartame's danger? I've never understood that. Lead was used for a long time in many things, including pipes for drinking water, until we figured out it was bad. Why wouldn't it be that same with aspartame? I have eaten/drank aspartame all my life, yet I do no have any serious diseases, I feel fine, have no allergies, and am not overwieght. I also do not sit and eat just sweet n' low or whatever, I do it at will, not because I am addicted to it, and have no desire to at any time, in fact I can not think of any time I ingested apartame during the last week, and yet I do still use it, so I can't really be addicted if that is what you are suggesting it does to people. Whatever, there's always going to be people who believe things.
