I got a forward of a forward regarding the evils of Aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal) that was quite alarming. Attempting to be a good little Chicken, I looked up some references. It seems to be a hoax. However, it also seems to be a debate that has been around on the Internet since 1995. (side note: my sister has MS and doesn't drink diet sodas.)

... at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on "ASPARTAME" marketed as 'NutraSweet,' 'Equal,' and 'Spoonful.'...

Why Aspartame is so dangerous: When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to Formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants.)

The methanol toxicity mimics among other conditions multiple sclerosis. ... The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is! Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its use, aggravating the lupus to such a degree that it may become life-threatening.
