Narrator Cori Brackett had a strange cause-and-effect experience with the diet cokes she was drinking and quickly found herself disabled and diagnosed with MS. Slowly able to walk and speak again, she believes her illness is linked to aspartame. She is a co-owner of a video/film production company. After 7000 miles, and 25 hours of footage, "Sweet Misery" will reveal one of the most pervasive, insidious forms of corporate negligence since tobacco. Written by
Unfortunately, unlike many other conspiracy films, this one isn't even interesting. We eat and drink far more natural sources of methanol and our bodies create and dispose of formaldehyde in much larger doses than Aspartame creates. The film is just a series of a few anecdotes and specialists working outside their fields. Much the same as the ID crowd works.
The movie creator at the very beginning of the film establishes a cause for her own MS and spends the film trying to prove her suspicion is correct. It's sad she has MS, but the film just seems like she is looking for somebody to blame.
If your tired of the assault on science, avoid this film.
