      Hi Melissa and all,

      The article you shared with the list, Melissa, points out another
      thing no one has mentioned yet–the killing of your brain cells.

      When I first heard about that several years ago (the medical field at
      that time didn’t want you to know about it because there apparently
      had been a relationship between the marketing of these products and
      the medical world), I wasn’t sure it was anything more than myth
      being promoted by the press or conflicting interest parties. But I
      decided to put it to the test and gave up the ***two liters of
      Nutrasweet-laced soda*** I was drinking *each day* from May through
      October during the years we had been living in Arizona. I don’t take
      heat well, it affects my health; but what I didn’t realize was I was
      still having my health affected by what I was consuming.

      One of my sons’ teachers happened to mention the harmful effects of
      aspartame to me, and I figured I’d test out her theory that short
      term memory was affected. I had nothing to lose. Every summer, I
      did seem to go into a kind of burnout and struggled to write.

      I
      tested the theory and switched to club soda (and read the bottle to
      be sure it had no Nutrasweet in it). That was the year I ended up
      writing–in two weeks–a 12,000-word article for one of the national
      newsstand magazines where I was a cover features writer–and not one
      word was cut when that article was published.

      Summer burnout is a thing of the past for me now. I haven’t used
      aspartame since.

      Thanks again for making people aware, Melissa.

      Warmly,
      Michelle
