I am bored of posting abstracts.
I am sorry blue star but as of this moment aspartame is not scientifically proven to cause cancer or epilepsy. However the lack of research is due ethics that it would be pretty bad to ram someone fully of aspartame to see if they get cancer. I think any results will come about in the same way as asbestos where the side effects will only be known in the long term in the general population.

Normal soda = 150kcals
I think there will be a difference.
