Another recent assessment by the French Food Safety Agency (AFSSA, 2002) reaches a similar conclusion:

"(...) the current state of scientific knowledge does not enable a relationship to be established between the exposition to the aspartame and brain tumours in humans or animals."  www.afssa.fr/ftp/basedoc/aspartamgb.pdf
