Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World Documentary Hits Home
In November of 2001, Cori Brackett, co-owner of Sound and Fury Productions, was in the process of doing research on Eugenics and the absurd idea of "Perfect People" advocated by such seemingly diverse folks as Darwinists and Hitler, when she began to experience a tingling sensation in her hands and feet. At the time, she was unaware of any controversy surrounding artificial sweeteners and had been a heavy consumer of diet soda. Around then, she read an article about aspartame being connected to many health problems and quit using products like diet soda—which contain aspartame. However, the tingling stubbornly continued, eventually convincing her to seek medical advice. Her doctor ordered an MRI of her brain which resulted in the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. At first, she was horrified as her condition quickly progressed to the point that she had double vision, slurred speech, and weak limbs forcing her to use a wheelchair. Through dietary changes and a host of therapies, her condition improved and continues to do so to this day. This rather extreme experience caused her to go on a journey across country, seeking answers. The result of this quest is the documentary, Sweet Misery and the upcoming collection of poems called Through the Shadows. Cori is currently studying for her PhD in Natural Health through the Clayton College of Natural Health. As Cori says, "I never asked for any of this, but since it happened, I feel compelled to share with others. I only want to help people in any way that I can. I ask for full disclosure from companies, so that everyone has a true understanding of what they purchase and consume".
