Re: [IP] Aspartame Concern

The fear about aspartame and pregnancy has to do with the fact that the main
ingredient is phenylalanine.  Any diet soda bottle that uses aspartame, or
food product for that matter, has a statment:  Phenylketonurics: Contains
Phenylalanine.  My sister-in-law is pregnant and her doctor told her to
avoid it if possible.  Apparently, the unborn child can become sensitive to
it and have problems in life with it.  So they recommend you avoid it.  I am
not sure what scientific facts there are to support it.  Just what I have
