  • The key mechanism of harm appears to be methanol toxicity—a much-ignored problem associated with aspartame in particular
  • In recent research, methanol-fed mice presented partial “Alzheimer’s disease-like symptoms,” while rhesus monkeys fed methanol developed persistent pathological changes related to the development of Alzheimer’s
