I heard that same thing years ago when aspartame was still pretty new, so I stayed away from it. I think it's very naive to believe that just because the FDA allows certain things in our food that it is OK to consume or even good for us. It's all about money honestly, and we need to be smart in our choices and educate ourselves. With the internet, it's so easy now to just do a search and common sense tells us when a site is set up by a wacko, or whether the person touting the information might be credible. We need to think for ourselves, processed foods are killing us and making our kids sick.
And that's my soap box. Don't wait for it to come out in the general media, that can take 15 or 20 years. Listen with an open mind but common sense.
Look at how they are saying don't microwave in plastic now.... they said that over 20 years ago! But the general public wouldn't listen, and the huge companies hushed up that kind of information.
Ok I'll get off my soap box. :) I am just so glad to see more people in the general stream starting to realize that "They" do not have our best interests in mind, they just want to make money, and it's up to us to speak up when we don't think something is good!
