Is aspartame really bad for you? Just wanna have a basic understanding. Should i stop drinking things that have it?
Probably in large: Amounts, it is not the best for you. There is little evidence of harm if you use a teaspoon in your coffee, but large amounts of diet sodas and use of very large amounts in baking may be a problem.

I would keep it to a minimum. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it bad to have aspartame daily? I use 1 or 2 Crystal Lite packets daily. Also drink diet coke often. I also use a lot of sucralose.Is this harmful?
Yes: there are no interactions. In general, you are better off using smaller amounts of sugar than using aspartame or sucralose, which actually metabolically may be just as bad as sugar in higher doses.

A few people are clearly allergic. But the science is fabricated, the real authors have eluded identification and the scientific attributions have been fake.
