How will Aspartame hurt you?
I know for PK's phenylalanine can be bad (since they are essentially born allergic to the substance), and saccharine has been shown to cause cancer in some laboratory animals, but what about Aspartame?
I know the deal is that it is a fat soluable substance: ie: you need to exercise it off, rather than piss (to put it in layman's terms) it out (ie: water soluable) like regular sugar.
And sugar can lead to tooth decay and putting on extra weight (as too much of just about anything except vitamin C can do anyway). Tell me if I'm wrong, but I haven't heard anything about apstartame causing cancer or anything else. If you have that kind of info to share, please do....
