Video Chronicles Medical Horrors of Aspartame. An industry case study of a food supply in crisis.

In November of 2001, Cori Brackett, co-owner of Sound and Fury Productions, unaware of any controversy surrounding artificial sweeteners and had been a heavy consumer of diet soda, began experiencing a tingling sensation in her hands and feet. She read an article about aspartame being connected to many health problems and quit using products like diet soda – which contain aspartame.

However, the tingling stubbornly continued, eventually convincing her to seek medical advice. Her doctor ordered an MRI of her brain which resulted in the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

After 7000 miles, and 25 hours of footage, Sweet Misery reveals one of the most pervasive, insidious forms of corporate negligence in the history of the industrial revolution. The toxic long-term effects of aspartame are often dismissed as a “hoax” by the sweetener industry and at least five other Internet websites. The real footwork, however, unravels something less comforting than a mere “Hoax. Sweet Misery is a documentary just released by Sound and Fury Productions.

Aspartame is inherently, markedly and uniquely unstable in aqueous media” is a quote from the congressional record in 1985, yet it was approved for use in soft drinks and other beverages.

So what happened?

Is there credible evidence if you look beyond the smokescreen of corporate medicine? The primary research and interviews have been quite disturbing.
