This might sound strange, but we seem to believe all of the "ads" that are displayed about diet pop. It's very attractive. Do you drink diet pop? Aspartame is one deadly chemical. It's also known as Equal and NutraSweet. Aspartame turns into methal wood alchohol at 84 degrees fahrenheit and therefore not used in "fountain drinks". Instead, another deadly compound is used.....saccharine because it holds up to heat better than aspartame. The aspartame, after forming wood alcohol turns into formaldehyde. No, I'm not kidding. Too many people are taking too many "prescriptions drugs" plus "diet this" and "lite that" and "margarine this". Those are the chemicals that we ingest in our body and in my opinion, are causing a lot of todays problems. Maybe this will help, eh? Good luck.
