Incidentally, all that stuff about aspartame is a bunch of alarmist 'Chicken Little' nonsense. Anything that truly caused that prodigious litany of symptoms would be banned and transported to underground storage by guys in lead suits. Even terribly unhealthy substances like nuclear waste and inecticides don't have that broad a range of toxic effects. If you're going to site axe-grinding biased sites, you might as well get the other side, which incidentally sounds much more level-headed to me:

The basic jist I've heard from doctors who are familiar with the science and clinical history is that the stuff is harmless unless you are allergic to it.
