Mercola is good, from what I have seen in the past.
some of what aspartame can do to you (from that website)
Headaches/migraines (I had)
Abdominal pains (yep)
Fatigue (blocks sufficient glucose entry into brain - (don't think so)
Sleep problems (off and on)
Vision problems (in a sense, yes, this was during panic attacks, or just before)
Anxiety attacks (oh yeah!!!)
Depression (in a sense yes, feeling trapped, not yourself anymore)
Asthma/chest tightness. (yep!)
Like I said, NEVER AGAIN will I touch it. NEVER! and that arizona tea, 1/3 calories, tea/lemonade. was good, until I found out it had aspartame, or something like it, that s name, suraclose or something.
never touched that since either.
To feel normal, to go to places, meet people, dine out, Orchestras, etc. and then to feel you can't handle a simple "get gas for car and pay", each and every day for months. yeah...never again.
Good luck by the way, hopefully it can be taken care of, whatever it is.
