Not 100% true since most yogurts contain it and yogurt isn't junk, also in most cereals and cereal isn't junk either as long as you aren't eating sugar cereal, instant oatmeal too.

I try to avoid it but it is in a lot of stuff.

It isn't that hard to avoid. It's in junk *food* so just stay away from the junk and you can avoid it.

If yogurt contains aspartame, it's junk. If oatmeal contains aspartame, it's junk. A lot of yogurts and oatmeal ARE junk just as most cereals are junk. Like I said, avoid the junk and you can avoid the artificial crap.

Well I disagree but okay if you say so.

NOPE!  I'm HIGHLY allergic to it.

It started out as headaches to almost dying from it.

No. I am severely allergic to it and all artifici sweeteners. Only regular sugar and sugar in the raw.

No--I don't like what aspartame becomes once it enters your body, and there can be interactions with certain medications. I use stevia or Nectresse, which is made from monkfruit.

Nope, it's a migraine trigger for me, as are most artificial sweeteners.
