On July 19, 1985, the Journal of the American Medial Association reported on its review of aspartame safety research. That authoritative report concluded: "Consumption of aspartame by normal humans is safe and not associated with serious adverse health effects. Individuals who need to control their phenylalanine intake should handle aspartame like any other source of phenylalanine."
