I'm going to be honest here. I drink a lot of diet drinks (usually Kroger brand) that contain aspartame. I people are saying it's poison & it takes bitter, etc, but I actually prefer the taste of things sweetened with it - sugary drinks seem to leave a weird taste/film in my mouth. My boyfriend is diabetic & drinks a lot of water (which contains more chemicals than diet drinks). The one thing I will NOT eat or drink is anything containing Splenda. Everytime my boyfriend drinks something containing Splenda, he gets very sick for several hours afterward, when I drink it, it gives me migraines.
So, yes, I agree that aspartame is probably bad for you, but so is just about everything else in the world now

So with fluoride killing me when i drink water, insecticide producing food killing me when I eat, and names of chemicals that are designed to fool people that attempt reading the ingredients labels.
If the government isn't trying to kill us, then they sure are dumber than we give them credit for.
"oh a lil fluoride aint bad for ya"
"well ur food would of been sprayed with insecticide anyways so what does it matter if it produces it"
"those fancy chemicals dont do anything idiot"
Just some replies ive heard in the past. My advice, don't try to help anybody directly, they take it offensively very often.. Let the sheeple be sheep

You couldn't be more correct in your comments. They say smoking is bad for you too. But again, Billion dollar industry that generates tons and tons of tax revenue. I'm with DoomZilla who hinted at eugenics and depopulation agenda here.

Lots of things are bad for you, but Aspartame is poison! It amazes me how many people know it's bad but continue to consume it, I can only imagine that they don't realize just how bad it is.
A number of years ago I went on a diet and replaced sugar with Silver Spoon, Half Spoon Sugar. It was great, it tasted just like sugar but without the normal sweetener after taste, I got alot of headaches but I put this down to being on a diet and eating less. About four years later I went on a diet again and once again started using Half Spoon Sugar, my headaches developed into migraines, so bad that I would end up in hospital to have pain killer injections and then be perscribed countless tablets to take.(I used to be one of these people who said, so you have a migraine,get over it,it's a headache!) It took me a while to work out that if I didn't have the sugar I didn't get a migraine, then not so long to work out it was Aspartame. I can't go near anything that says Weight Watchers, Low Calorie etc etc as they all have it in and if by mistake I eat anything with it in I know about it.
Whenever I have to go for a medical or anything doctor related where they ask if you are allergic to anything I can never remember the name and I say that sweetener.........they always reply, you mean Aspartame. They know all about it Aspartame.
