RE: [IP] Fwd: Fw: Suicide on the instalment plan.(Diet coke)



It's the result of a lot of evil politics.
Unfortunately it is the urban legend that  is the myth.
There is quite a bit of truth to the concept that aspartame affects people 
with diabetes.
At some point  someone decided to turn it into an urban legend to serve 
their own purposes..

You have to remember that Donald Rumsfeld was CEO of Searle and he really 
pushed to get it approved.
It was a very difficult battle because the FDA did not want to approve it 
for many years.

Several legitimate universities for instance Stanford University, have 
studied it
and found it to affect diabetics adversely.
If you search on the web you can find the information from reputable 
universities.
You can also use the freedom of information act (while it still exists) to 
request the data from the FDA's own study.

I believe it is now classified as a drug , which will interact with other 
drugs, etc. but I'm not positive.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET that urban myth web sites are also "INFO YOU GET ON THE 
WEB"!!!!!!!
You have no more reason to believe these sites than any other.
