> Background
>
> In December, 1965 Searle chemist James Schlatter discovered aspartame
> while working on an ulcer drug. The substance, comprised of 50 percent
> synthetic phenylalanine, 40 percent synthetic aspartic acid and 10 percent
> methanol, was about 200 times sweeter than sugar by weight and had no
> calories. By spring, 1967, Searle began conducting safety trials in
> preparation for petitioning the FDA for product approval.
>
> Soon after the trials began, lab animals (monkeys and mice) began
> experiencing adverse effects ranging from brain lesions and tumors to
> seizures and death. Yet Searle petitioned the FDA for aspartame approval
> in February, 1973. According to Turner, Searle provided the FDA with over
> 100 studies claiming they proved aspartame was "safe." Independent
> analyses of these studies, however, proves conclusively that aspartame is
> actually a dangerous, neurotoxic, carcinogenic and highly-addictive drug.
>
> Trusting Searle,s promise that aspartame was safe, the FDA approved the
> limited use of aspartame in dry goods on July 26, 1974. Turner and Dr.
> Olney formally objected to the approval. Their petition triggered an FDA
> investigation of Searle,s lab practices which proved that Searle had
> provided the FDA with inaccurate conclusions resulting from manipulated
> data derived from poorly-designed studies. The FDA reversed its decision
> to approve aspartame in dry goods.
>
> On January 10, 1977, the FDA formally requested that the U.S. Department

> criminally indicted for "concealing material facts and making false
> statements" with regard to its petition for aspartame approval.
>
> Among the many charges FDA investigators made about Searle,s shoddy lab

>
> The grand jury investigation was led by U.S. Attorney Samuel Skinner. In
