From the Philippines:

How safe is aspartame?


There is no convincing information to suggest that aspartame is harmful as a dietary sweetener when consumed in usual amounts.


[Editor's comment: For information about aspartame, including links to other information that will help you better understand the product, see: Aspartame at this website. The ADA also posted a webpage about the "unsubstantiated claims" concerning aspartame: American Diabetes Association Statement Regarding Aspartame WWQ]
