    Wear sunglasses and avoid daytime heat.

    No, the fact that it causes some people an issue means it's dangerous for every one in the world and must be avoided at all cost.

    Haven't you ever seen the warnings about the dangers of the Sun, it's radioactive, it risks damage to your skin and eyes!

    Without the Sun, there will be nothing.
    Without aspartame, everyone will be happy.

    The best evidence for myself, specifically, is how I feel the foods on my body. I know from 10 years or more ago when for the last I ate anything with aspartame (or acesulfam-k for that matter, too), that I don't feel well afterwards.
    Given also that nowadays aspartame can be found mostly in the cheapest junk food like the cheapest beverages, it just supports my idea to avoid it at all cost.

    I have to agree with 4K8KW10, Aspertame killed a very dear friend of mine.

    He stepped out infront of a truck full of the stuff.

    Aspartame is not dangerous. Don't believe the myths.

    Well I drink about 6 litres of sugar free 'aspartame' filled fizzy crap a day. If it is bad then I'll be able to let you know pretty soon :)
