Saccharin Was Labeled A Carcinogen In A Bogus 1960s Scam

A picture of the book Sweet Poison by Janet Starr Hull, PhD, CN

In the 1960s, the sweetener industry changed, but not for the better. The only artificial sweetener at that time, saccharin, was sacrificed to make room for a new, more profitable sweetener, NutraSweet/Equal® made from aspartame. Saccharin in Coca Cola® In 1902, Monsanto Chemical Company launched its reputation by manufacturing saccharin, the company’s very first product. From 1903 through 1905, […]

Join Me On Pyramid One Network Radio

I love granting radio interviews. I was raised a film brat, so hand me a mic, and I’m ready to go. I’ve been granting radio and television interviews about aspartame and the diet sweeteners since 1997.  As one of the world’s foremost artificial sweetener experts, I have fun exposing information about aspartame, Splenda, saccharin, and stevia – information […]

Resurrecting The Aspartame US Senate Hearings

US Capitol building with dark storm sky in Washington DC.

On November 2-3, 1987, the US Senate chamber was sparsely filled, yet it was grossly divided. Senators Edward Kennedy, Howard Metzenbaum, and Orrin Hatch sat behind an empty, polished wooden table, while predominant medical researchers, physicians, and consumer attorneys sat facing them in a hollow gallery; their briefcases overflowing with research documents. Their shiny leather shoes gleamed beneath the tailored cuffs of […]

Don’t Be Sold A Can Of Diet Propaganda

A Top Secret box tied with chains

I have to admit that I fussed with edit after edit before posting my reply to this insane article on upworthy.com because my emotions were running high, and I was all over the map. How much more disappointment can we take reading the continuous propaganda about the supposed safety of aspartame? Not to mention deep sadness at the lack of integrity in the […]

Study Shows Aspartame Causes Memory Loss

An elderly man walking with a younger man.

New aspartame research is getting some mainstream media attention, and this is resurrecting some of the old research proving the toxic health effects of aspartame – health dangers that were proven over 30 years ago. I think it is fantastic that these new studies are getting some publicity, but I want to know why haven’t the original studies […]

Suppressing Scientific Studies – Again

A Top Secret box tied with chains

Recently, proof that the MMR vaccine causes autism finally broke into mainstream news. This proof is disturbing because underlying this research lies a cover-up. Another one. A big one. It’s happened again. The “proof” that combining the MMR vaccine into one drug causes autism is not a new revelation. This fact was exposed because of a […]

In The Blink Of An Eye – How Aspartame Can Harm Your Vision

A close up of a human eye.

In 1986, Shannon Roth hired an attorney, assembled a battery of medical doctors, and entered into US Senate offices to share her blinding reaction to aspartame, found exclusively at that time in NutraSweet/Equal®. After the meeting adjourned, one industry attorney referred to her as “Blinky.” Nice guy … Shannon became irreversibly blind in her left eye from […]

Q&A – The Truth About Aspartame Research + Research Links

The Q&A letters

Q: I’m emailing because I’ve been doing independent research on aspartame, and much of the data I’m finding related to the subject is showing that there is no causality relationship between aspartame and negative health effects, which is contrary to what you speak of so passionately. I just wanted to get your take on some […]

Musical notes.

The US FDA recently approved the newest version of aspartame – Advantame – a potent vanillin and aspartame-based chemical sweetener from Ajinomoto North America. Aspartame, no matter what it’s called, just won’t go away. Same Song – Another Verse Aspartame has been around since 1965, and it has been marketed in many different ways to […]

How Sweetener Science Is Rigged

An over weight woman gagged with a tap measure.

Why does the United States continue to ignore the research proving that aspartame is a carcinogen, and that sucralose causes renal issues, infertility, and breathing difficulty in lab studies? Is profit over human health really that important? Do the Big Corps seriously own our lawmakers and the media, telling them what to do? Apparently so. The dangers […]
