In this issue:

  • Aspartame...An Undeserved Bad Reputation, Part 1.  You may be familiar with my series Insulin...An Undeserved Bad Reputation.  Well, insulin is not the only guy on the block who has gotten a reputation that he doesn't deserve.  Artificial sweeteners, in particular aspartame (or Nutrasweet), have also received unfair criticism.  There are wild stories out there that aspartame will cause all sorts of health problems.  As usual, I will take a careful, evidence-based approach to this matter, and discuss what the science has to say about aspartame.  I will eventually discuss other artificial sweeteners as well.  Click here to read Part 1.

  1. As reference material for this issue, did you happen to watch the information in the Sweet Misery documentary?



    • Ben,

      I’ve seen these “documentaries” before, as well as reading the book “Sweet Deception”. These documentaries and books are filled with half-truths, distortions, and flat out fabrications, which I will be addressing in upcoming articles in this series.
