Sorry to prolong what is rapidly becoming a facile debate - but
from this last set of posts I suspect Ms. Martini may be confusing

Take Lou Gehrig disease - this is a genetic defect in S.O.D is it
not? Exactly how can you link NutraSweet.

Just out of interest how long has NutraSweet been available - when
was the first recognised case of Myasthenia Gravis, or indeed any
of the plethora of diseases quoted above? 

No one denies possible interactions by food additives in disease
(eg NutraSweet), but as for being a causative agent.  Hmmmm...
