Aspartame and your brain

      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.

      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.
