If it's not anything you've experienced, then what do you care? WHy would 
you even bother with the thread then? 

I have experienced problems from consuming Nutrasweet that went away when 
I stopped eating it, then then came back when I started taking it again 
and which consequently went away when I stopped. Plus, several other 
times by mistakenly consuming something that I didn't know had Nutrasweet 
in it!!!!

Forget all the logic of the debate for a moment. Why don't YOU take mass 
amounts of it for 90 days and note how you feel? Record all headaches, 
forgetfulness, aches and pains, weird attitudes and other uncomfortable 
sensations. Then, don't eat ANYTHING with NutraSweet in it for the next 
90 days.
