For the past twenty years, public information
about the dangers of aspartame has been carefully
controlled by various interest groups and organizations.
There is no value to a lack of information and
data, as the public has a right to know all sides
of any issue, especially one that effects them
directly. Independent research scientists and
informed medical practitioners have made public
the evidence that aspartame is harmful to public
health, and many organizations as well as individuals
have shared their personal experiences via aspartame
organizations offering data that has been kept
from the public.
The following is a list of select aspartame organizations
which have persisted in keeping aspartame information
available to the public.
