Is aspartame bad for you? After 7000 miles, and 25 hours of footage, “Sweet Misery” will reveal one of the most pervasive, insidious forms of corporate negligence in the history of the industrial revolution. The long-term toxic effects of aspartame are often dismissed as a “hoax” by the sweetener industry and at least five other internet websites.
The real footwork, however, unravels something less comforting than a mere “Hoax.” “Sweet Misery” is the working title of a documentary released by Sound and Fury in June of 2004. The initial investigation includes interviews with doctors, lawyers, people who have had health problems which they associate with aspartame usage, advocates, and many others.
“Aspartame is inherently, markedly and uniquely unstable in aqueous media” is a quote from the congressional record in 1985, and yet it was approved for use in soft drinks and other beverages. So what happened? Is there credible evidence if you look beyond the smokescreen of corporate medicine?
The primary research and interviews have been quite disturbing. Dr. Woodrow C. Monte wrote: “Methanol [one of the breakdown products of aspartame] has no therapeutic properties and is considered only as a toxicant. The ingestion of two teaspoons is considered lethal in humans” (Monte, Woodrow, “Aspartame: Methanol and the Public Health,” Journal of Applied Nutrition, Vol. 36, Number 1, 1984, p. 44).
Though it can hardly be considered good fortune to have an immediate reaction to aspartame, at least you are spared the potential long-term ticking time-bomb of a vast array of neurological illnesses. These include, but are not limited to Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Graves Disease, Chronic Fatigue, MS, and Epilepsy.
