Could you explain how this happens chemically?

I find it difficult to believe that aspartame (Nutrasweet) could cause
Gravis (plus all the other problems you constantly talk about.) I drink
diet Coke and Pepsi alot (at least one 2-liter bottle a day), and I am
perfectly healthy. This I have been doing for at least 10+ years. I also
have an elderly grandmother who drinks several 2-liter bottles of Diet
Pepsi a week --- no problems with her either. Quite frankly, I don't look
to see if the foods I eat have the Nutrasweet symbol or not (and I
probably do eat some of it once in awhile). So far so good...
Where do you get your research from? I noticed that Dr. Roberts quoted
all his comments from his own books. Gee, that sounds kind of
self-gratifying to me. Any other books or prominent physicians that agree
I have read that Nutrasweet has the possibility to cause cancer if taken
in high doses. And I don't plan on eating a "Nutrasweet only" diet, but
some of your comments sound, well .....
I for one am getting tired of always coming on and finding this argument
going. You posted something about you talking to a friend and her telling
you her horror story. I don't care! Take it to the private e-mail if you
are talking to someone in particular, otherwise keep the posts to facts or
research only, not opinions.
