This is concerning the article, "Probe Asked in Charge That Searle Rigged Test", which appeared in the Chicago Tribune on January 27, 1977
You will find the article below.
I find it amusing that a spokesman for Searle said: "We have maintained from the beginning that if this does go to a grand jury we will vigorously defend our position and we feel we can do so."
So what they did was make sure it never got there by having their defense team, Sidley & Austin hired both US Prosecutors!
To this day aspartame has never been proven safe, and the FDA has so far ignored over 100 independent scientific peer reviewed studies showing aspartame toxicity! Further aspartame manufacturers have continued to do everything possible not to show problems in their controlled and financed studies such as the Rowan Study on seizures. To be absolutely certain nobody would have a seizure they gave 16 of the 18 subjects anti-seizure medication, and only "one" capsule of aspartame for a "one" day study. Then they were able to get it peer reviewed.
Said Goethe: "The truth requires constant repetition because error is being preached about us all the time".
Dr. Ralph Walton did research for 60 Minutes on scientific peer reviewed research and funding. This showed that 92% of independent research showed the problems and if you omitted 6 studies the FDA had something to do with and one pro-aspartame summary 100% showed harm. http://www.dorway.com/doctors.html#walton
