I read this article a couple weeks ago and decided right then and there that I will never, ever, EVER buy another product containing aspartame. I mean, I was already avoiding it because I think it tastes horrible, and because it’s been linked to so many health problems, but then I read the article’s comments about Stevia (a herb used as a sweetener in South America for practically forever, with no related health problems) and how much trouble they had getting it approved for ANY use in the United States, thanks to the company who owns Nutra Sweet basically bribing the Food & Drug Administration.

I dare you to read the entire article and defend this behaviour.
