Janet Hull almost died from aspartame poisoning in 1991. When she discovered the truth about aspartame, she naively thought that by merely sharing what she discovered with others, she could help in removing aspartame from the public market. She soon realized that the truth behind aspartame is a well-guarded secret. She also realized that its removal from public use was going to be a hard task to accomplish.
Sweet Poison began as a quest to help others conquer the deadly effects of aspartame and other chemical sweeteners. Dr. Hull wrote Sweet Poison to inform and protect public health from being seduced by the ‘sweet poison.’
