This is certainly an interesting chart. I grew up hearing about the dangers of aspartame, but never really thought much about it. Now, I swear off any sweeteners. Especially HFCS. We do not purchase ANYTHING containing this ingredient. I actually just found out that Subway sandwich bread contains HFCS and it broke my heart to have to stop going.
The interesting thing about some of the "studies" referenced is that the animals were given ridiculously high amounts of the sweetener. I'm always a little leery of information that is presented this way because it doesn't provide you with anything about how the research was conducted. Just the science part of my background speaking there. Personally, I try to avoid processed foods as much as possible including artificial sugars.
