    aspartame cessation == feeling better


    I was having heart palpitations very regularly. I was drinking at least one diet soda/day but many times i would drink 2-3. One day about 3-4 weeks ago I decided to quit and the palpitations slowly started going away. I have not experienced any for several days now.

    I honestly thought all the "aspartame is poison" talk was a bunch of crap, but after this experience I am probably done with it for life.

    I am sure most people are not like me and they are totally fine consuming aspartame, but I just wanted to post this to see if anyone else has a similar story.

    It may also have been the preservatives in the diet soda. I remember reading a while back that they may shut down mitosis for a period of time.
