Aspartame is one of the most common artificial sweeteners in use today. It is sold under the brand names NutraSweet" and Equal". Aspartame is composed mainly of 2 amino acids, aspartic acid and phenylalanine. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and are found naturally in many foods.

Aspartame is used in many foods and beverages because it is about 200 times sweeter than sugar, so much less of it can be used to give the same level of sweetness. This, in turn, lowers the calories in the food or beverage.

Rumors claiming that aspartame causes a number of health problems, including cancer, have been around for many years. Many of these continue to circulate on the Internet.

Con

Through the first week of NHL postseason play, the league"s narrative has been one of incredible success. A recent NBC press release touts that NHL postseason ratings are way up from last year. Games on the NBC Sports Network averaged 621,000 viewers through the network"s first ten games, up 61% from the first ten postseason games on the network last year, and CNBC"s average 295,000 viewers are up 25% from last year"s comparable games.

OBVIOUSLY ASPARTAME IS CAUSING THE NBA TO DO BETTER THAN THE NHL IN TV RATINGS

Dafuq are you talking about, con? Aspartame, commonly known as sucralose, is an artificial sweetener, and is not related AT ALL to the NHL, or the NBC. If your trolling, ha ha, your soooooo funny.

Reasons for voting decision: I think that aspartame is good as an alternative and has nothing to do with the NHL or NBA.
