Just an attempt to bring some real science into this, but WHAT
is the proposed mechanism of nutrasweet's putatively terrible
effects?  I mean is the research you allude to the safety
studies, because I've read those and to anyone with even a
rudimentary knowledge of medicine theres clearly no smoking gun
there.

Or is this just anecdotal "my (fill-in-your-condition
here) got better when I stopped eating nutrasweet" sort of
evidence?

Is it the fact that nutrasweet may offer a source of free
glutamate?  If so, what about BBB penetration issues?
