    Aspartame is a systemic posion. See here, and a page linked from there, and check the links at the right hand side here.

    From the middle link:

    I have described many serious side effects and medical/public health hazards attributable to aspartame products(1-4).  The neurologic, psychologic, eye, endocrine, metabolic and pediatric ravages in my data base of over 1,200 aspartame reactors, comprised of both patients and correspondents, are impressive.  Additionally, it is my increasing conviction that aspartame products can cause, aggravate or accelerate migraine (5), seizures (6), multiple sclerosis (3), diabetes and its complications (7), Alzheimer's disease (8,9), and even brain tumors (10).  The clinical and scientific basis for these assertions have been detailed previously.

    Unfortunately, another tragic problem has been neglected:  addiction to aspartame products.  Persons consuming large amounts not only may suffer aspartame disease, but also have difficulty stopping them because of violent and prolonged withdrawal reactions... the hallmark of addiction.
    Recovered alcoholic patients repeatedly stated that they felt worse after avoiding aspartame than alcohol, and asserted that they had traded one addiction for another.  My experience, coupled with more than 10,000 consumers who volunteered their complaints to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and manufacturers, reflects the magnitude of this widespread unrecognized affliction.

    But Hey! You'd look so good with

    migraine (5), seizures (6), multiple sclerosis (3), diabetes and its complications (7), Alzheimer's disease (8,9), and even brain tumors

      It's not like drinking a vial of bleach though.

      I hadn't heard about the addiction part (I did hear the rest), but I've never experienced anything like that, so I guess I'm okay.
