I agree with you that this is something to really watch out for, Its better to drink normal soda rather that diet due to this,
As a diabetic I was shocked when my doctor said if I absolutely had to drink soda drink reg soda and take my read readings soon after rather than drink diet. I was doubly affected because my diet soda of choice was canfields diet chocolate soda which has twice as much aspartame as other sodas.
For the past 6 weeks I have had 4 days if that where I haven't woken up to spend the first 4 hrs of the day vomiting heavily and wondering if this was it for me. I threw away the 2 cases of coke zero that I had in the cupboard for the week and tossed all the splenda for my coffee in favor of natural honey.. It may be a case of finding out too late but for today it is all I can do.
Since 2002 an artificial sweetener called neotame has been approved for use in food and drink products around the world, although so far its use appears to be very limited. Neotame is a chemical derivative of aspartame, and judging by the chemicals used in its manufacturing, it appears even more toxic than aspartame, although the proponents of neotame claim that increased toxicity is not a concern, because less of it is needed to achieve the desired effect.

aspartame is the chemical that will secretly kill us all. its in our drinks, our foods, its even federal law that ALL municipal water supplies have to add it to drinking water. it has NO health benefits, or cleansing agents, its only harmful to the human body. so why is it mandatory?
"THE OBAMA DECEPTION"
Someone made a comment about just sticking to water, wonderin what's in it. I have to say it. Flouride. Also, aluminum is being found more and more.

And then a couple of months ago after reading an article on a conspiracy site we agreed to stop the Equal in the coffee. She loves equal, to the tune of 20 packs a day in her coffee. We swapped that for sugar and she told me last night that the problems are gone after a couple of weeks, and she is starting to lose weight.
This was month one:
At month two, we cutout all sodas, tap water, and she is 100 percent back to her old self. If you drink Aspartame; you should be aware that when reheated, it turns to formaldehyde. If you continue the course you can get full blown MS, including tiny holes in your brain.
Thank you.. For this post
