Check out this link - It seems breast cancer rose strangely since 1992 - just after aspartame really hit the public when the patent expired in 1991. The anti-aspartame folks think that the breakdown products of aspartame may be linked to women with breast implants getting sick. It may not be the implants but the fact that women who do get implants tend to be overly body-conscious and more likely to be drinking diet drinks containing aspartame. The implant makers are probably getting a bum rap for a problem aspartame may really be causing. The frightening thing is that none of the scientists looking for the cause of the breast cancer rise is going to ever look at the fact that it occurred exactly just after the aspartame patent expired and aspartame found its way into nearly everything.

Wouldn't it take a certain amount of time for cancer to develop? Such as several years following the approval of aspartame in what was it, 1983(ish)? Or can it (cancer) really start to grow and be diagnosed in as little as a year? If that's the case, then was there a similar rise a year or two after its initial approval?

I know that I was using NutraSweet just as much before the patent ran out as I did after - but it was "nice" to be able to buy aspartame at about half the price. The belief that it would help me lose weight, or at least not gain as much, was worth the cost in my mind, and I liked the taste of it better than sugar.

Deb S,

The animal study linked above took place over a span of 115 weeks, just over 2 years, and the article doesn't say how much of that time it took for many of them to develop tumors.

Per the above link:

"Breast cancer began to rise rapidly concurrent with the use of aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet), when it was approved in 1981 for use in dry foods and, in 1983, for use in sweetening carbonated beverages.

Between 1940-1982, there was a steady, annual rate of breast cancer increase of about 1% per year.

Between 1982-1987, the increase in breast cancer accelerated to 4%, annually. (ACS)

Between 1983-1988 the per capita consumption of aspartame quadrupled (mgold, USDA,)"
