While you might not believe something as outlandish sounding as his sad story, when the FDA flat out lists Aspartame as having these side effects - I mean come on people:
Aspartame, being 180 times sweeter than sugar, has had some animal research linked consumption of high amounts of the sweetener to brain tumors and lymphoma in rodents. The FDA maintains that the sweetener is safe, but reported side effects include dizziness, headaches, diarrhea, memory loss, and mood changes.
MEMORY LOSS?!@ MOOD CHANGE?!@ Yea. No.
