Well I don't think aspartame is recommended by doctors and diabetes specialists, it is more than often sugar is discouraged and people look for alternatives. Also, I'd say Mercola.com shouldn't be considered a source but if you happen to find something from there, I'd look elsewhere to validate as there have been a lot of misinformation and information that has been fabricated on that site.

The NIH site PubMed is a great site for fact checking, here is a good article from 2010 on the subject.

This is pretty much in line with other recent research that has come out in the past couple years and one reason I've personally cut out most sweeteners.
