Have posted on main maintenance thread but in case q gets lost...

there is a lot of hysteria and scaremongering about aspartame and the only chewing gum that wont have it in will be sugary stuff (and even then it may contain it as an extra sweetener)

There was a study in Italy (I think) in which rats were given massive doses and subsequently the rats developed cancer (I think).

I read about it in The Times but years ago now.

Thank you! Someone on other thread also kindly told me about Peppersmith gum which you can buy from waitrose & holland and Barrett so will try that smile

There is nothing wrong with aspartame - if you read the evidence as opposed to the conspiracy theories it's absolutely
