Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic is a definitive book (1038 pages) on reactions to aspartame, currently being used by more than two-thirds of the population as an additive/sweetener. Dr. Roberts is widely regarded as the expert on a host of adverse effects from popular products containing this synthetic chemical because of his many original observations and extensive research spanning two decades.
Physicians, other health care professionals, the media, consumer groups, and aspartame "victims" or their relatives have inundated Dr. Roberts with requests for a detailed analysis of this unique experience. They recognize that his dedication was not restrained by governmental or institutional policies and corporate grants...a remarkable achievement in contemporary medical and biological research.
The need for this volume is underscored by the virtual denial of aspartame disease (so named by Dr. Roberts) from the medical profession and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It meets the Koch-like criteria for a specific disease. Moreover, it has reached epidemic proportions - probably in the millions. The author presents information on the first 1200 aspartame reactors in his database.
Every physician probably encounters aspartame disease in practice, especially among patients with illnesses that are undiagnosed or difficult to treat. This applies to ALL fields of medicine and public health. It is apparent from a partial list of reactions: headache; dizziness; depression; convulsions; impaired vision; the aggravation of diabetes mellitus and its complications; hypoglycemia; multiple allergies (including dual sensitivity to MSG); aspartame addiction; chronic fatigue; eating disorders; pediatric problems. The numerous misdiagnoses include arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease.
