Spit Take Study Finds No Evidence for 'Aspartame Sensitivity'

Late last month, Pepsi announced that it will remove the artificial sweetener aspartame from its diet Pepsi products by the end of this year, bowing to consumer concerns that the sweetener poses a number of health risks. Questionable Internet sources have stoked these fears, accusing aspartame of causing cancer, multiple sclerosis, blindness, seizures, memory loss, depression, and birth defects. Alternative medicine guru Dr. Joseph Mercola even called the sweetener "By far the most dangerous substance added to most foods today."

It is no wonder, then, that some individuals worry that they may be "sensitive" to aspartame, and report experiencing symptoms like headache, nausea, dizziness, and congestion after consuming food containing the sweetener. A study published in March to the journal PLoS ONE put their claims to the test, however, and found no evidence of any acute adverse response to aspartame.
