October Letters to Discover: Author Information

The October edition of Discover had a couple of notable letter writers. The most controversial was Dr. Ralph G. Walton who disagrees with the below noted article supporting the safety of aspartame. In the letter he refers to a study he had published which is linked below. This came with a somewhat neutral reply from the editors and another reply, at the request of Dicsover, from D. Eric Walters who refutes the claim that aspartame is unsafe.
