I'm not too sure about that.

I remember a movie called "Atomic Café" that compiled various newsreels, documentaries and propaganda films from the late '40's through the '60's. In one of them a scientist explained that there are three components to an atomic explosion: heat, concussion, and radiation. Then he proceed to add that, of the three, radiation was not much of a concern.

Purely anecdotal, I know.

My wife has fibromyalgia.

It took me some time to notice, but eventually I started to see a pattern, whereby on days when she drank a diet soda with Aspartame, she had more pain. I started getting Diet Rite at one point (the only diet soda made with Sucralose for several years). She seems to have more good days once I got the Aspartame out of her diet.

No scientific study to back me up. Just my own observation.
