I feel a need to reply to John E. Garst who left a comment a mile and a half long after my post yesterday.
Mr. Garst, I am certain, used a copy and paste reply in my comment spot about how safe Aspartame actually is and that all of the studies done on rats to prove that it is unsafe were simply done incorrectly and unrealistically.
He aparently did not read my entire post, or he would have realized that I was not attacking Nutrasweet, I was talking about me, and how Nutrasweet effects me.
So please allow me to clarify the point of my post.
I don't know if Aspartame, aka Nutrasweet, is safe or not.
I have heard and read many things that say it is not.
I recognize that these things are often miscommunicated, exagerrated, elaborated, or simply made up.
I decided to do my own trial to see if it was effecting me.
I am not a labratory rat.
I did not measure my doses of aspartame and monitor my health, heart rate, and tumor levels over time.
I simply stopped drinking the stuff to see what happened.
What happened was: I was less hungry and had more energy.
In less than 5 days it was clear to me -again, not a lab rat- that aspartame was doing things to my body that I didn't like.
So please Mr. Garst, (who I am certain is on Aspartame's payroll), understand that I am not a Nutrasweet basher.
I am not making false claims or even accurate reports of how Nutrasweet did in clinical trials.
So don't take it personal and get all crazy like.
Please don't compare me to a lab rat.
I am just a person trying to be healthier, and Nutrasweet has been proven in my own trial, to have adverse effects on my body.
(So what are you going to say now?)
