SweetPoison FAQ

The aspartame issue is so alarming and complex, everyone has many questions. One of the most frequent questions, "Why haven't I heard about this before now?"

The truth behind the aspartame issue carries with it a long history of misinformation. The best way to learn is to ask questions. SweetPoison is one of many information sites supplying answers and resources.

One of the most common questions I am asked is, "Has The NutraSweet Company threatened you? Aren't you afraid they'll do something to you?

The answer is 'No.'  I have not had any negative contact nor threats from anyone representing aspartame.  What I have written in the book is true, and the documentation is public information.  I have debated NutraSweet officials numerous times, and they disagree, of course, with my belief that aspartame is dangerous to human health, especially when used during pregnancy and by children.  They repeat the same statements each time, nevertheless, such as 'their corporate research shows aspartame to be perfectly safe', and 'there are no double-blind studies proving aspartame is harmful to humans.'  Then they brag about their sky-rocketing sales.  "NutraSweet cannot be bad if it sells as well as it does," they justify.

Of course, I counter with the opposing information I wrote within SWEET POISON.  "I pay more attention to what people are experiencing," I reply, "and to my own illness caused by aspartame."

As I wrote in SWEET POISON, the research showing aspartame to be perfectly safe was all corporate funded research, and the opposing laboratory studies proving aspartame as dangerous were performed by independent researchers, university professors, and Ph.D., MD researchers funded by academic interests.  So, the battle of whose research pays for what results goes on and on.  Unfortunately, the trusting consumer is the one who gets hurt in the long run.

I believe it is time to step back and re-evaluate the FDA approval process; to acknowledge the power behind advertising dollars and media sponsorship vs. responsible journalism; to monitor sincerity within the American Medical Association (AMA); to critique the quality (or lack) of nutrition classes offered at American medical schools; to challenge the bullying behind the approval of other alternative sweeteners; to reexamine the safety of saccharin; and to expose the media's "information blackout" concerning the dangers of aspartame.
