Pounding headache for three days straight now. It began when I decided to stop buying canned coffee (200 calories a can, two cans a day) and start drinking green tea instead. I like green tea – particularly the flavored kind like “Citrus”, “Honey and Lemon”, “Mandarin and Mango”, etc. Good stuff.
At first I figured the headaches were simply due to caffeine withdrawal – but my boss pointed out the problem to me this morning. My new favorite green teas – the instant kind I shake up in a bottle – have aspartame.
I’ve been chugging this stuff by the gallon for several days now, killing brain cells by the thousands. Good thing my name is on this website, otherwise I’d probably not remember it.
