What about that Nutrasweet?

According to this BBC article, aspartame (Nutrasweet) has been 'linked' to leukemia.

If it doesn't occur in nature, think long and hard before putting it in your body every day! Even if its a vitamin, which doesn't occur in nature in an isolated form.

You are better off getting a vitamin in a whole food, where it exists with other helpful compounds, many of which may not even be understood yet. And where digestion releases things into your system gradually, not all in one big, unnatural megadose.

I still take vitamins and other supplements as well, but I really think its important to know what you are doing and why. And to take your pills with food to buffer their impact on the system.
