Aspartame = AminoSweet
A few of our members report that Aspartame bothers their children. You should be aware that it will soon be marketed under a new name. Amino Sweet. www.aminosweet.info

Headaches from fake sweeteners
I get headaches from most fake sugars. Especially aspartame. It also tends to make me foggy and not think straight. Years ago a boss sent me home from work because I was so out of it.
Check with your
doctor first!
