From League City, Texas, USA:

Is NutraSweet/aspartame dangerous for kids with diabetes? I read an article that said that they are equal or worse than rat poison. Is that true? I give my daughter a lot of sugar-free drinks and snacks and most of them contain aspartame.


Please see our page about aspartame, which includes links to various articles about the safety of aspartame rebutting the "claims" of aspartame's danger that you cite.
