Click here to view an interesting study on the results of consuming aspartame, the “sugar free” ingredient in many diet sodas.
I have not seen independent confirmation of the results, but assuming that it’s not a hoax, it’s an impressive example of a good science investigation; i.e. a control population was established to minimize the effects of genetic variances, and all environmental variables were eliminated except for the consumption of aspartame.
ET applauds private citizens who take the time to apply good science to help answer important questions. (For another example, please see “McYukky Burgers“.)
