wow, someone that thinks along the same lines as me.
i very rarely drink dark pop, like maybe a can every other month or so. i don't mind Sprite and it's counter-parts, but i don't consume a lot of that shit either.

Three byproducts of aspartame are methanol, formaldehyde, and formate, but defenders maintain these occur in modest amounts - similar to what is found in fruit juices - and cannot be considered toxic. But according to Michael Schachter MD in an article on HealthWorld, the methanol in juices is chemically bound so it cannot be absorbed into the body whereas in aspartame it is in a free state where it can be absorbed. Additionally, in aspartame the methanol is unaccompanied by ethanol which acts as a protectant in its natural state.
