Please be aware of the risk.
Aspertame is in so many foods, including some baby foods. It is completely unreasonable. These diet type of foods are quite harmful to the body. Especially in the amounts that Americans eat them.
I challenge you to read the labels on your foods and beverages. Yes, look at the active ingredients and the ingredients and see what lurks below the container or wrapper.
Not only are there links to cancer, but the neurological disruptions are extreme. ALS, Parkinsons, Epilepsy etc. Are you sure you want your children to have that diet drink? Your mom, your co-worker? Are you willing to put something in your body that can trigger these responses? Well, as ususal, there are two sides to the story. To satisfy your curiosity...check it out. A simple google will do the trick!
A very informative documentary style short film has been released regarding personal experience and effects of Aspartame in our real world. If you can find someone with a copy of Sweet Misery, watch it and share it.
