Is aspartame safe? Yes. FSANZ and other international regulatory agencies have concluded that aspartame is safe.
End of story? Nope.
I overheard a couple of women talking about the effects of Aspartame on some of their friends today. One spoke of a remarkable turn-around after cutting out diet drinks altogether.
So I did some investigation on the internet.
Go to Janet Hull's website and see for yourself the list of body system dysfunctions she says is caused by aspartame.
Aspartame is the common denominator for over 92 different health systems at the root of modern diseases.
Hull's Aspartame Detoxification Program demonstrates the most effective way to reverse disease symptoms is removing the underlying cause - aspartame.
Incidentally, Aspartame was developed by G. D. Searle in Skokie, Illinois (which was bought out by Monsanto). The CEO of G.D. Searle who pushed aspartame through the FDA was Donald Rumsfeld. That just about says it all.
You'll get a very good overview at Robert Mercola's site

I've started an aspartame detox.
On the track
In Adelaide with David Beard. Went for an early morning run around the Torrens. It was a run not a jog and a good one at that. David's in better shape that I am. 20 minutes of satisfying running.
In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and steer clear of aspartame.
