Claim: The artificial sweetener aspartame was originally developed as an ant poison.

Status: False.

Quote:
The author of the anti-aspartame screed reproduced above appears to have taken her information about aspartame's being "developed as an ant poison, and only changed to being considered non-poisonous after it was realized that a lot more money could be made on it as a sweetener" directly from a satirical article titled "FDA Certifies Aspartame as Ant Poison"...
