Well, I drink 12 Diet Pepsi a day on average, which I have been warned about by by a member on this forum. If I start getting those symptoms I'll stop, until then, it's 12 a day.

DIET COKE with SPLENDA.  yes 

I can't drink caffeine but would recommend to anyone that 'need' a fix.  checkmark 

I had a professor, when I was still in school, have seizure during class because he drank a Diet Coke with aspartame. Very scary ordeal. Poor fellow couldn't drive a car for two years after.

Thanks for the heads up Robert.

Whatever.

Unless you want to be like the people who don't use cell phones for the "cancer risk," don't have aspartame. Everything is deadly at certain doses. Don't kid yourself, aspartame is completely safe 99.999999% of the time.

Here's a simple test that you can do to assess just one level of neurotoxicity:

Fill a shot glass with Equal, or some other nutrasweet/aspartame brand. Wet your finger and put it into the glass and leave it for 5-7 minutes. In some people, you will eventually 'taste' a sweet taste in your mouth.

This is both creepy and wrong. Tastes should not originate by putting your finger in a glass. Yet this has been proven to happen. Aspartame reacts with the nervous system in ways that aren't yet fully understood.

But then, I have always been a purist.

Aspartame is safe unless you have the genetic disease phenylketonuria. People with that have difficulty metabolizing the amino acid phenylalanine. There was a research project in the journal, Regualtory Toxicology and Pharmacology in 2002 that tested aspartame on mice. They gave mice 1000 times the highest human consumption (adjusted for weight) and found no ill effects. They then tested other animals. I only remember rats and dogs. Still nothing. If aspartame causes a problem its not because of aspartame, its because of the person taking it.

Interesting thread, one of my friends cannot tolerate Aspartame.

For years he was regarded as being epileptic because of constant seizures, then however somebody suggested that it could be the ingredients of the coke he drank which caused them. Well surprise surprise, he stopped drinking the coke and hasn't had a seizure since, it was then diagnosed that the ingredient Aspartame was what had been causing them!

He doesn't have any of the things that you mention Phoenixflyer, but even so, shouldn't products that contain Aspartame carry a warning saying as much that if you have, or may be susceptible to such an ailment, you should not consume the product? I mean we have warnings "May contain nuts" on packets of peanuts!

As I mentioned in the thread on Trans-Fats - what are you going to do, stop living because you MIGHT get sick from taking a breath? Ridiculous. Life is too damn short to get bent over the small stuff . . . live hard, live fast, enjoy it . . .

This has been an ongoing issue since Coke came out with Diet Coke with Aspartame.

If anyone cares to look back a bit futher into the past, they'll see that just like anyone who has a majority share in a product, little subliminal messages ALWAYS come out about their competitor.

The Sugar industry was PETRIFIED when Aspartame was developed, because it could quite have possibly spelled the end to using calorie inducing sugar, MEANING.. less profits in the hands of others.

All these tests and crap that have been done by these institutes are complete bullshit if you ask me.

OBVIOUSLY too much of ANYTHING is bad for you. Eat too many hamburgers = heart attack. Drink too much beer = cirrhosis of the liver. Eat too much sugar=Gain a lot of weight.

ONe diet coke a day is NOT going to kill you.

Here in Sweden diet coke today comes with the new (as marketed by Coca Cola) sweetener Sucralose. It is supposed to give diet coke a richer taste and indeed it does taste different from the old one with Aspartame.


The effects of these artificial sweeteners do worry me to some extent..but i just try to not over consume the stuff and i'm sure all will be fine. A bottle of diet coke once in a while will not kill ya, i'm sure.

In the US everything needs to have warning labels or you might get sued by someone over something.
Won't be long before you see a warning label like "any contact with this product or anything or anyone that has been or will be at some point in contact with it may at some point cause you some discomfort or worse of a kind we cannot at this time predict. We hereby deny all responsibillity for any such events, including events affecting or caused by people who were unable to read or comprehend this label".
