So me and my friend were talking about this today. I always knew this to be true but since I dont have a masters degree in medicine, no one listens to me. Now it is coming out that aspartame is the cause of cancer, especially in children. Why does it take so many lives ruined before the FDA and the lovely government decides to tell us that certain things are no good for us?? I think that the government is trying to do some population control and this is how they do it. Dont allow your children to drink anything with saccharine or aspartame in it. Splenda is no good too. That will be the next thing on the chopping block, so to say. In a few years..they are going to release information that splenda is detrimental to our health as well. So for all of those people out there that use splenda in everything for many years...they will be shocked to find out that they have either cancer or some other untreatable problem. You can thank the FDA and the government for all of this. Dont use aspartame, which is in a lot of things. Especially diabetics..they use this stuff quite a bit. Use stevia instead of sugar. That is a natural sugar type sweetener that you can use if you would normally use an artificial sweetener. Just a note to everyone...anything that has artificial or imitation in the title...stay away from!!! Not healthy!!! Anyone feel the same way about all of this?

I've been told this for awhile now. My old teacher was a diabetic so he was always drinking diet sodas and food with artificial sweetener. By the time I graduated high school, he had cancer. My family has low blood sugar so when we consume anything with artificial sweeteners in it, it makes us feel weird, plus the aftertaste is gross! So I'm always reading labels for that junk.
