I have done research on aspartame, this is just an example of the research I
What Does Aspartame Do In The Body – It Is Another Excitotoxin?
Aspartate acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain by facilitating the
transmission of information from neuron to neuron. Aspartic Acid which is 40% of
Aspartame, is an amino acid. When it is taken in its’ free form as in Aspartame,
( unbound to proteins ), it significantly raises the blood plasma levels of
Aspartate. This excess Aspartate leads to a high level of this neuro transmitter
in certain areas of the brain. Too much Aspartate in the brain kills certain
neurons by allowing the influx of too much calcium into the cells. This influx
then triggers excessive amounts of free radicals which literally kills brain
cells. The neural cell damage that can be caused by excessive asparate or
glutamate, ( glutamate is also known as MSG, another excitotoxin ). These
exicotoxins excite or stimulate neural cells to literal death!

Rosa, I have to tell you that whole thing about diet coke and MS is a myth.

I’m not saying that aspartame is absolutely safe in any and all amounts,
just that it has NOT been linked to any diseases yet.
