aspartame addiction and increased craving for sweets
hyperactivity in children
severe depression
aggressive behavior
suicidal tendencies

Aspartame may trigger, mimic, or cause the following illnesses:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Epstein-Barr
Post-Polio Syndrome
Lyme Disease
Grave’s Disease
Meniere’s Disease
Alzheimer’s Disease
ALS
Epilepsy
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
EMS
Hypothyroidism

Mercury sensitivity from Amalgam fillings
Fibromyalgia
Lupus
-Hodgkins
Lymphoma
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

These are not allergies or sensitivities, but diseases and disease syndromes. Aspartame poisoning is commonly misdiagnosed because aspartame symptoms mock textbook ‘disease’ symptoms, such as Grave’s Disease.

Aspartame changes the ratio of amino acids in the blood, blocking or lowering the levels of serotonin, tyrosine, dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline. Therefore, it is typical that aspartame symptoms cannot be detected in lab tests and on x-rays. Textbook disorders and diseases may actually be a toxic load as a result of aspartame poisoning.

Ever gone to the doctor with real, physical symptoms, but he/she can’t find the cause? Well, it’s probably your diet, your environment, or both.

I have just bought 2 e 4litre bottles of Robinsons ordinary orange juice and checked the label....cant believe it.....ITS IN THAT TOO!!!!

It's very difficult to get anything without it in. I don't like stuff with sweeteners in which Aspartame is considered to be, yet in order to keep off the fatty drinks you have to ditch the full sugar varieties and go for the diet or 'no added sugar' which still have aspartame in them.

It's worrying that America bans it, but what do they use instead I wonder?

Still, I think the side effects are listed in the extremes as they generally are in order to cover all possiblilties.
