After doing some serious research on the internet, I came across several websites which to the best of my knowledge -and personal experience- claim and conclusively prove that diet, "sugar free" products are harmful to your health and can cause serious illnesses or even death!
To make things simple, I will give you the links at the end of this guide for you to judge for yourself if the evidence is true or not, but to be brief, let me just summarize the problems some people experience and the (possible) causes.
It seems that thousands of people suffer from the following medical issues (do you?):
headaches, memory loss, seizures, vision loss, coma, and cancer. It also appears to worsen or mimic the symptoms of such conditions as fibromyalgia, MS, lupus, ADD, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue, and depression.
What is the cause of all of these problems? ASPARTAME WHICH ALSO GOES BY TRADE NAMES SUCH AS: Equal, NutraSweet, E951, Spoonful, NutraTaste, Natrataste, Canderel, Benevia, Sucralose, Splenda and anything else they can think to call it.
Now I know what your thinking, "this guy's crazy! If it's soooooo bad, how can manufacturer's put it in their products and get away with murder?", or, "where's the proof big shot?!".
Well, first consider that a medical researcher recently (1998) flew to Barcelona to talk to the researcher of the Trocho Study which proved aspartame embalms living tissue and damages DNA. When you damage DNA you can destroy humanity. Here is the Trocho Study:

On August 1, l985 the FDA’s own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress at least one of Searle’s (the manufacturer's of the stuff) studies “has established beyond ANY REASONABLE DOUBT that aspartame is capable of inducing brain tumors in experimental animals and that this predisposition of it is of extremely high significance. … In view of these indications that the cancer causing potential of aspartame is a matter that had been established WAY BEYOND ANY REASONABLE DOUBT, one can ask: What is the reason for the apparent refusal by the FDA to invoke for this food additive the so-called Delaney Amendment to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act?” (which makes it illegal to allow any residues of cancer causing chemicals in foods).
I could probably go on for another 50 pages on the problems that aspartame triggers like, for instance, Gulf War Illness:

Don’t forget blindness as the free methyl alcohol converts to formaldehyde and formic acid in the retina of the eye and destroys the optic nerve.
I won't bother you dear Ebayer with more studies and words, I trust that you care about yourself and your children to find out what this poison can do in your body. I will however leave you with some links which I believe will give you a clearer understanding and hope that you get a wake up call as to the dangers of this drug. Please let me know personally if you found this guide helpful and your vote here is truly precious and appreciated!
