: Does anyone know wether or not the person who has been diagnosed with this terrible disease frequently used artificial sweeteners, in particular Aspartame used in products such as equal, spoonful and diet pepsi/coke. if so please leave a message here. i am interested in seeing how many ppl may have been affected.
It's funny you should bring up the bit about artificial sweetners! My husband is a diabetic and uses artificial sweetners and is always thirsty (a side affect of the diabetes), he used to drink lots of diet sodas and was especially fond of Christyl Light which has lots of artificial sweetners. His mother has Alzheimers and until a month ago he was sure he had it too. We had heard about the artificial sweetners causing possible memory problems so we decided to cut way back on them and he says he thinks his memory is much improved. I am interested in more info about this connection.
