Now that I have found enough convincing and “disturbing” data, I feel compelled to reveal certain facts about this “damaging” substance, which has been sneaked into all types of foods with the APPROVAL of health authorities. Let us see now what this chemical, aspartame, is, how it behaves in the human body and how it affects the brain of the fetus.
When Aspartame (APM) molecule gets metabolized, it lets out methyl alcohol along with phenylalanine and aspartic acid, turning into a neurotoxin. Neurotoxins are chemicals that have poisonous effects on the central nervous system.
According to Dr. Louis J. Elsas’, the director of Medical Genetics at Emory University School of Medicine, the examination and diagnosis of Brandon Mills found the newborn with numerous birth defects and severe neurological impairments as well as vocal cord paralysis and swallowing dysfunction. During her pregnancy, Brandon’s mother consumed about “4 to 6 twelve-ounce cans a day of NutraSweet-containing beverages.
Because APM “isolates” are neurotoxic, they impair the central nervous system; brain structure; limit mental activity; and increase the risk of cerebral palsy. In milder cases, they provoke ADHD, autism, or bipolarism (once rare in children). The brain tissue literally becomes plastic-like.
After eight years of research on rats fed APM, Italian scientist Morando Soffritti and his research team came to the conclusion “that aspartame could have carcinogenic effects,” and asserted that aspartame raises the risk of malignant tumors and cancer in rats. Thereby, he contradicted the results of studies financed by the manufacturer of aspartame, B.D. Searle & Company, to reassure the public that aspartame poses “no risks” to human health.

actually, it is so much more concentrated than aspartame, that it constitutes less than a certain percentage of "ingredients" it does not need to be listed in the ingredients. Thanks FDA
