When I was pregnant in 1988, doctor told me not to eat or drink anything diet/lite ... well, if diet/lite was harmful to my baby, why in the world would I drink/eat it anyway. Wouldn't it also be harmful to mama??
I had heard that newborns receive a little needle prick on their heels to be tested for PKU (PHENYLKETONURICS) which causes retardation in babies!!
I realize that corn syrup is other drinks is bad too but I'd rather take my chances with a real Coke than a diet/lite anything else.

Phenylalanine is a naturally occurring amino acid and is also found in chocolate. That's why chocolate makes people happy. Put your tin foil hats away everyone
But the levels of it in coca is so small that it harmlessly passes through the body. Products embedded with it have it dominate the product which causes the chaos.

Well this is rather odd, I live in northern Kentucky. I am sipping on a 20 oz bottle of Regular Mountain Dew, read this thread and happened to look at the label on the bottle. Couldn't find the warning, looked again, looked again, not there. Why would aspartamebe in somebut not in others? Is it strictly in diet, or throwback? Is it only in some states and not others? Are they targeting certain consumers? This is rather intriguing and slightly frightening.
