Just wanted to share that I have a strange issue with aspartame.
After drinking Diet Coke/Pepsi as my primary beverage for yeeeeears, I started itching. All over my body. The more sensitive the skin area the worse it was. Couldn't stop the itching with creams and such.
Did some reading on-line to see if I could find any possible causes, and found an obscure reference that in addition to migraines,etc., that aspartame was tied to some skin issues.
So I figured it wouldn't hurt to cut it out, and switched to Vitamin Water Zero and Propel (unfortunately I don't like plain water, and wouldn't drink enough if that's all I could drink).
The itching went away almost immediately! Happy to not be itching. But I do miss it...
Who needs tattoos? I already have ink in strange places...
