I could never tolerate Aspartame, even when it first came out in Tab back in the late 70's early 80's, it made me ill (first time I ever consumed it was at my grandmothers, they loved that stuff). If I eat or drink something that contains it I know immediately. My mouth will go numb then my head with start to throb and my ears will start to ring and my heart will get fast and I will be very light headed and dizzy and my bodies temperature will get erratic. Not a pretty picture at all. I promise I knew the dangers of this artificial sweeteners, colors and flavors long before the government or anybody else figured that there might have been a problem.
