Aspartame: Your experience

Do you attribute your cancer to aspartame?

See 'Sweet Misery' available on Netflix, which documents why aspertame should never have been approved as a sweetener.

I am convinced this is causing cancer in many individuals; yet it is still out there. My fiance' drinks it daily, even after watching the above documentary. She has stage 4 breast cancer. I have been unable to convince her to give it up.

I avoid it myself, because it has an immediate affect on me; it makes me irritable and my heart rate increases. I cannot believe it is still available. Just one more example of big business money machines that allow dollars to trump health.
