This is an advertisement by NutraSweet advertising this addictive, excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered drug, adjuvant and teratogen to diabetics. This is inexcusable. According to the late Dr. H. J. Roberts, world expert on aspartame and diabetic specialist aspartame raises blood sugar. Here is a study showing two diet drinks a day doubles diabetes risk. There have been other independent studies on aspartame and diabetes. One was hacked off under independent peer reviewed studies

Aspartame can precipitate diabetes, simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions and interacts with insulin. The free methyl alcohol causes them to lose limbs. You will find quite a bit of documentation in Dr. Roberts 1000 page medical text: "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" on Consider the fact aspartame has 10% of "free" methyl alcohol in it. Many reports have come to Mission Possible World Health Intl that when diabetic aspartame victims abstained from aspartame/Equal/NutraSweet/Canderel/Benevia/E-951/Neotame, etc. their diabetes disappeared. Since a study has shown that aspartame raises blood sugar levels its understandable why so many diabetics report eliminating aspartame eliminates diabetes.
