Our expert says:
Yes, there have definitely been studies that show that aspartame etc. are not beneficial for the body at all. I heard a story from a doctor that had a patient who had major headaches and seizures. After this patient stopped using diet colas they tried to induce a seizure with no success.
When they then told the patient to drink another diet cola he had a seizure literally 5 minutes after ingestion of the product. Personally I stay away from these sweeteners but I know that EAS puts these substances into their products to reduce the sugar/kilojoule content while not sacrificing the flavour.
What I would also suggest however is that you have a chat with the Jacqui at the Sport Nutrition forum and get her input and opinion. See what she has to say.
