Headache and Visual disturbances/Diet cola

Diet cola contains aspartame and for a long time I have suspected that the aspartame gives me a headache. I usually drink cheap diet cola and Pepsi Max.

Today (January 6 2015) I read an article in a Danish newspaper called metroxpress about diet cola products. And the article confirmed my suspicion.

The aspartame in cola might give people a headache. Furthermore, the article writes that cola with aspartame also might give people visual disturbances.

Especially, the thing about visual disturbances surprised/scared me.

So today I have decided to quit all kind of diet cola products. Instead I will drink normal cola and water.

I agree, diet drinks has given me headaches and the taste in not good. I only like to drink the real colas when I am in the mood to drink soft drinks.
