Dear Sweetie
Equal sweetener contains dextrose and aspartame. Dextrose has been declared safe for human consumption for many years. Last year a variety of international health organisations declared 'aspartame', as safe for human consumption. You can read the article I wrote on this subject, by clicking on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then doing a search with 'Aspartame' to find the article on 'The Aspartame Controversy'.
