It hasn't happened, and the chemistry in the internet scares wouldn't pass the approval of a high school chemistry teacher. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is aspartame really bad for you? Just wanna have a basic understanding. Should i stop drinking things that have it?

Do you recommend diet coke (in moderation), or just not at all? If its so bad, one would think aspartame would be banned.
No : No aspartame is an artificial sugar substitute. Because of this it is actually better for your teeth as the bacteria that cause cavities use sugar as their food source. If they dont get that sugar than they do not have a food source and you are less likely to get cavities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
