One month ago, Sound and Fury Productions finished post production for "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World." We call this a "Case Study of a Food Supply in Crisis" and it follows the introduction and marketing of aspartame.
Cori Brackett, the narrator, had a strange cause-and effect experience with the diet cokes she was drinking and quickly finds herself disabled and diagnosed with MS. Slowly able to walk and speak again, she believes her illness is linked to aspartame. She is a co-owner of a video/film production company.
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." We interview victims, doctors, attorneys and activists.
Consumer Attorney Jim Turner provides a candid report of his exchange with Donald Rumsfeld. Rumsfeld was the CEO of Searle, and, at the same time, part of Reagan's transition team when the FDA's board of inquiry was overruled to allow the marketing of Aspartame as a food additive. Until this time, aspartame was unanimously rejected by the FDA. What followed was a single-minded force of politics over science.
