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
with you?  

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.
