One of the most important questions to ask concerning the dangers of aspartame is, "What's the research?"
The research proving aspartame dangers has existed since the late 1960s. Non-corporate research has been performed by medical scientists at universities such as MIT, Washington School of Medicine, Arizona State, and SUNY New York. This research isn't old or "outdated" as industry claims. It serves as an "I told you so" by insightful researchers and scientists aware of aspartame dangers from the moment they learned it was an ulcer drug discovered in the mid 1960s by a GD Searle pharmaceutical employee on company payrolls.
But, for those who seek scientific proof from the latest, up-to-date research on aspartame health dangers, three new studies were performed in 2005 proving aspartame harmful to human health. The Trocho study was published in 1998. The details of the Liverpool Study, UK, are currently being completed, and will not be posted on my websites until after the study has been published by medical journals.
Interestingly, none of this highly regarded research proving aspartame unsafe is from United States' research institutions. The research comes from European scientists immune to the American political and corporate pressures to keep the dangers of aspartame taboo.
