 it much worse. WHERE are the medical journal articles to prove this?

I second that motion,  It was my understaning that this newsgroup was 
designed to cater to the concerns of real researchers.  I expected 
statements to be backed by references to  supporting literature.  The 
notion that aspartame is the largest coverup in U.S. history, or is a 
cause of various neurological diseases  are bold 
statements which, to be beleived, would require substantial supporting 
evidence. Betty does not provide this and thus does not in any way 
validate her stements.  In my opinion this newsgroup is 
not the place for Betty and her fear mongering, non scientifically 
motivated tactics; nor is it the place discusions for debating issues 
such as evolution vs. creationalism which while being an interesting topic of 
discusion has nothing to do with research in the field of neuroscience.
