Diet softdrink and whole oats

I have no problem with the wholemeal stuff. un-processed food is best but the pepsi max isnt really good. one it contains caffeine and two its contains aspartame which gives me headaches. i stay away from anything that is sugar free. i found an article on aspartame which you might find interesting http://www.sweetpoison.com/aspartame-information.html here is a little snippit on some of the dangers

"Aspartame and PKU

This sugar substitute, sold commercially as Equal and NutraSweet, was hailed as the savior for dieters who for decades had put up with saccharine's unpleasant after taste. There are quite a few problems with aspartame. The first is phenylketonuria (PKU). One out of 20,000 babies is born without the ability to metabolize phenylalanine, one of the two amino acids in aspartame. Toxic levels of this substance in the blood can result in mental retardation. Beyond PKU, several scientists believe that aspartame might cause altered brain function and behavior changes in consumers. And many people have reported the following side effects from aspartame:

* Fibromyalgia Syndrome and symptoms of Fibromyalgia

* Multiple Sclerosis symptoms

* Dizziness

* Headaches

* Menstrual problems"
