I consume aspartame every day (just took a sip of "poisoned" tea) and
the frequency and severity of my migraines are both much lower now
than a few years ago. I am aware that migraine can be a side effect,
but it doesn't seem to be a problem for me.

I just looked at my disabled sons yearbook, this is for the severe/
profoundly disabled children, I couldnt find one obese child in the
whole book. I saw very few that were chunky. These kids have no
mobility, why arent they obese, if exercise is the key reason children
are obese, these kids should all be obese, right?

There are more ways to burn calories than with your feet. Wheelchair
basketball played aggressively is an extraordinarily great exercise,
especially when played at the state championship level for four of
five years. :)

However, there are some very heavy kids in these groups. Yours may not
have them, but, I have seen quite a few, typically the same percentage
as non disabled kids.

I feel my teeth getting coated with sugar when I drink regular soda. So
I don't drink it.
