Another tidbit from this book I am reading: What You Don't Know May Be Killing You by Don Colbert M.D.
NutraSweet is made up of methanol and the amino acid phenylalanine and aspartic acid.
What is methanol? Websters Dictionary defines it as "a light volitile, flammable, poisonour liquid alcohol". Methanol is converted to formaldehyde-better known as emblaming fluid.
Is that what you want to be putting into your body?
a sign of methanol excess is a headache. Watch that diet soda!
NurtraSweet has been linked to memory loss, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, blurred vision, depression and hyperactivity in kids.
If you have any of these syptoms - eliminate NutraSweet (diet soda & the sugar packets) from your diet.
