RE: "Killer" chicken???
Aspartame is nasty, nasty stuff. Strong correlations are being made now between the rise in incidence of neuromuscular disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Myasthenia Gravis, Fibromylagia,and Lou Gehrig's Disease with the onset of use of aspartame. Try Google-ing Aspartame and note the studies AND the chemical make-up of Aspartame. Splenda, although I've never used it, does not have nearly the cautionary tales about it as aspartame did from the very beginning. Aspartame has been banned for any use in the Medical Center I worked at since the late 80's.(other than vending machines)
