ASPERTAME is literally the fecal matter of genetically engineered Ecoli bacteria - they feed it toxic waste and then the bacteria defecate aspartame. Don't believe me? do a google serach - hundreds of articles confirm it.
think twice before you reach for that "sugar-free", "low fat" product (and check the ingredients)

Yeah, the secret ingredient is toxic looking sludge being excreted out the rear end of a slug looking bacteria..... Anyone see the similarity to real life?
US Senator from New Mexico Jerry Ortiz y Pino plans to introduce a bill to ban the artificial sweetener aspartame.
I am the New Mexico sponsor of the enclosed Senate Memorial 9, 2009, asking the Food and Drug Administration to rescind its approval for the artificial sweetener, aspartame.
You may know that the FDA, to its credit, turned down G.D. Searle's application for aspartame's approval from 1966 to 1981, at which point, approval was forced through the FDA at the insistence fo Searle's CEO, Donald Rumsfeld.
Numerous physicians' petitions as well as many private petitions have been filed with FDA since 1981 asking for the rescinding of aspartame's approval. These have all been routinely ignored and responded to with industry assurance about how many industry financed "tests" aspartame has been through, all of which showed "aspartame to be safe."
