I am a senior majoring in Industrial Hygiene. For my toxicology class we
are to choose an animal or human study and then take the opposing view in
a paper. I have chosen aspartame as my topic, but am having trouble
finding an actual technical paper on it. I have found several books which
discuss the possible deleterious effects of it, and articles which suggest
the same, but they either don't list the studies to which they refer or
my library doesn't carry the journal where the study was published.
Was there a study published in JAMA, NEJM, or any other widely available
journals? It doesn't matter if the study concluded aspartame was safe or
unsafe, since I can argue either point.
