Hi everyone, There is so much data now on why Nutrasweet (aspartame) is to be avoided, it’s amazing it is still on the market. I found a blog of someone with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia who is going to get off Nutrasweet and see what changes she notices. I would recommend watching the movie “sweet misery” http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7757697555859118501 is a documentary on how nutrasweet was developed and how the FDA pushed it through despite all research linking it to brain tumors and siezures. It’s disturbing but if any of your friends or family members have neurological symptoms please get them off this stuff.
Here is the account of the woman trying to get off nutrasweet http://thegirlfromtheghetto.wordpress.com/2008/01/30/aspartame-poisoning-could-my-diet-coke-be-giving-me-fibromyalgia/
Hopefully she also sees the research on gluten sensitivity and it’s relationship to pain syndromes. www.missionhillspt.wordpress.com and http://theburnhamreview.com/Mission_Hills_Gluten.php
