1.Aspartame’s been linked to cancer. A lot.
Aspartame is “generally recognized as safe” by the FDA while substantial data has shown its link to cancer.

Aspartame was found to increase cancer risk if exposure begins in the womb, reported a study at the Cesare Maltoni Cancer Research Center. And various studies have linked lymphoma and tumors in rats. And beware the BPA of cans and caramel coloring, reports Grist.
