I think we are supposed to accept that the nasty side-effects of Aspartame
have been shown beyond reasonable doubt. Witness the last two papers
I could find that contain the words 'Aspartame' and 'Seizures' in a database:
AUTHOR(s): Camfield, P.R. Camfield, C.S. Dooley, J.M.
TITLE(s): Aspartame exacerbates EEG spike-wave discharge in children
with generalized absence epilepsy: A double-blind
In: Neurology. MAY 01 1992 v 42 n 5 p 1000
AUTHOR(s): Shaywitz, B. A. Anderson, G. M. Novotny, E. J.
TITLE(s): Aspartame Has No Effect of Seizures or Epileptiform
Discharges in Epileptic Children.
In: Annals of neurology. JAN 01 1994 v 35 n 1 p 98
The difference is that the first paper is truthful, the second is part of a
massive government cover-up. Or something;-)
(More seriously, these papers might be addressing the same question using
different methodologies. I didn't look at them. But then again:
AUTHOR(s): Lajtha, Abel Reilly, Margaret A. Dunlop, David S.
TITLE(s): Aspartame consumption: Lack of effects on neural function.
In: The journal of nutritional biochemistry.
JUN 01 1994 v 5 n 6 p 266 )
