Is Aspartame bad for you? I drink diet snapple like crazy.?

All over the internet it says that aspartame is bad for you but the FDA and well respected scientists say that is is ok. Does anyone know the truth?
One of the most common side effects would be increased peristalsis or frequent diarrhea. This wouldn't be too much of a problem except in any group with a chronic health problem, such as: Diabetes, liver disease, infection with HIV/AIDS, or malnutrition. I recommend SPLENDA as the only healthy choice, because it is sugar with the caloric-end cleaved (cut) off. It doesn't seem to cause any problems in any group, and it tastes exactly like sugar. Most side effects of Aspartame are not observed and are listed in order to warn individuals of the very low possibility of problems associated, but the chances of having other side effects except diarrhea are almost negligible in healthy individuals. So GOOD LUCK!
It's supposed to be chemically just like sugar but tastes stronger. So I'd say offhand it's OK. The molecule has an opposite twist.
Back in the 70's saccharin was the artificial sweetner in diet sodas, and the researchers found that in mega large doses, it produced tumors in rats. They're not using cyclamates now either, and I have heard that aspartame doesn't get flushed from the body. Several diet books I've read warn not to drink any diet soda at all. Sugar in moderation is the safest, unless you are diabetic.I believe the FDA would accomodate anyone who gave them $$$.
Adverse reactions and side effects of aspartame include:Eye
blindness in one or both eyes
decreased vision and/or other eye problems such as: blurring, bright flashes, squiggly lines, tunnel vision, decreased night vision
pain in one or both eyes

headaches, migraines and some severe
dizziness, unsteadiness, both

suicidal tendencies Aspartame may trigger, mimic, or cause the following illnesses:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Post-Polio Syndrome
Lyme Disease
Grave鈥檚 Disease
Meniere鈥檚 Disease
Alzheimer鈥檚 Disease
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Mercury sensitivity from Amalgam fillings
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) These are not allergies or sensitivities, but diseases and disease syndromes. Aspartame poisoning is commonly misdiagnosed because aspartame symptoms mock textbook 鈥榙isease鈥?symptoms, such as Grave鈥檚 Disease. Aspartame changes the ratio of amino acids in the blood, blocking or lowering the levels of serotonin, tyrosine, dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline. Therefore, it is typical that aspartame symptoms cannot be detected in lab tests and on x-rays. Textbook disorders and diseases may actually be a toxic load as a result of aspartame poisoning.
It can stimulate brain cells, possibley excite them to death.go figure.
