    The most recent lot was around 2007. It is one of the most studied additives.

    Natural is always best, stevia is a great way to start, common sense would tell you that drinking a can of chemicals a day can't be good for you!
    Yes but cigarettes come with warnings, there are huge advertising campaigns that are govt funded to educate people etc. apples and oranges. With aspartame I have seen allegations anywhere from cancer to lupus to MS and still no firm evidence hence why it's still allowed both here and in europe etc.
