There are no documented studies confirming the claimed side effects of aspartame.

LOL! I find it interesting that you vehemently put down all natural health supplements as unsafe and unproven, yet here you defend an ARTIFICIAL sweetener!

Bottom line, like I said above:

If a person chooses to be part of an experiment by ingesting artificial sweeteners, that's fine. In 50 years the world will know the deal. But there is enough "evidence" at the moment to be cautious at the least, while avoidance is probably best.

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
