Many thanks go to healthranger7 for sending me his videos on aspartame. Healthranger7 has taken a lot of footage from the 60-Minute interview and the Washington DC, FOX News story, and edited them down to the meat on the bone of this aspartame issue. The videos were done in the late 1990s and early 2000, but have you seen them plastered all over the news??? Nope. And only 2 mainstream stations have aired a story? In America - a country hung up on American Idol and scandalous news??
This issue has been, and still is, silenced in mainstream USA information channels - I am personal witness to that. I was interviewed for this 60-Minutes piece, so I know. It took 2 YEARS after filming and editing for this piece to finally air, and it was never mentioned again. At least they put it on the air after 2 years of legal negotiating, and didn't completely kill the story as hundreds of interviews I have granted have done. But the story has not been recycled until now.
Healthranger7 rocks! Both videos he sent me (see both links) are really REALLY good, and you can circulate them to friends, family, and the media. This issue is real, people. Just because it is controlled by the television airways and is not on every front page newspaper or in the mainstream magazines, just because Ophra won't air a story about it - well, this doesn't mean it isn't a credible story.
It just means that it is too hot to handle, and it is avoided like the sweet plague! In our country of tabloids and the love of personal character-bashing - THIS issue isn't news? Don't you smell a rat??? And it's not a sweet rat!
