HOW ASPARTAME WAS MARKETED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION
By Dr Betty Martini D.hum
ASPARTAME DISEASE: AN IGNORED EPIDEMIC! – WWW.SUNSENTPRESS.COM
The aspartame wars have roared on over three decades. The history of fraud, deceit and power are a matter of record. On any day you can go to google and read new studies or articles on the havoc this deadly poison is causing. Try as they might the manufacturers could never get a deadly chemical poison to show safety.
The molecule breaks down to diketopiperazine, a brain tumour agent, and when the rats began to have brain tumours G. D. Searle would excise them, put them back in the study, and when they died would resurrect them on paper.
On Jan 10, l977 in a 33 page letter, FDA Chief Counsel Richard Merrill recommended to U.S. Attorney Sam Skinner that a grand jury investigate Searle for “apparent violations of the Federal, Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act 21 U.S.C. 331 (e), and the False Reports to the Government Act 18 U.S.C 1001 for ‘their wilful and knowing failure to make reports to the Food and Drug Administration required by the Act, 21 U.S.C. 355 (i)
Also for concealing material facts and making false statements in reports of animal studies conducted to establish the safety of aspartame.’ The FDA called special attention to studies investigating the effect of NutraSweet on monkeys and hamsters.

Unfortunately, the statutes ran out and both US Prosecutors, Skinner and Conlon, were hired by the defense team, Dr. John Olney who founded the field of neuroscience called excitotoxicity, tried to prevent approval of aspartame. Tired of the shenanigans presented by G. D. Searle in their failed attempts to show safety Dr. Olney demanded that the studies be done in his lab where he could oversee them. Sure enough aspartame caused brain damage. Dr. Olney decided at this point the FDA would not approve it, not realizing Searle had not submitted the findings. to them.
Searle said they would pay an independent company to go over the aspartame studies. G. D. Searle even told the FDA they would pay for independents to report on the aspartame studies, Universities Associated for Research and Education in Pathology (UAREP).
This private group was engaged to determine the factual accuracy of prior aspartame studies – but with the stipulation that UAREP “shall not express an opinion” regarding either the design or safety significance of these studies, nor make recommendations about the safety of aspartame for human use! This shows how scared Searle was in having anyone review studies on aspartame. They paid UAREP a half a million dollars to swear them to silence!
The original test results presented to FDA for aspartame approval were doctored to conceal the rat cancers the poison caused according to examining FDA scientists in an FDA Task Force Report which found these deceits:”Excising masses (removing tumors) from live animals in some cases without histologic examination of the masses, in others without reporting them to the FDA.” (Schmidt 1976c, page 4 of US Senate l976b). Searle’s representatives, when caught and questioned about these actions, stated that “these masses were in the head and neck areas and prevented the animals from feeding.” (Buzzard l976a) [In other words, the cancers were so big they choked the animals.]
- G. D. Searle told the FDA 12 lots of DKP were manufactured and tested in one study, yet only seven batches were actually made. (Gross l985, page S10835) Diketopiperazine is a brain tumor agent which breaks down from the aspartame molecule.
- In the aspartame (DKP) 115 week rat study the written observations of the pathology report was changed by the supervising pathologist, Dr. Rudolph Stejskal even though he was not physically present during the autopsies and could not have verified the observations of the pathologist who did perform the autopsies. The pathologist who did perform some of the autopsies had no formal training for such procedures. (Gross l985, page S10837 of Congressional Record 1985b)
- “Contrary to protocol, slides were not prepared of the (unusual lesions from the aspartame (DKP) study tissue for microscopic examination…” (Gross l985, page S10837 of Congressional Record l985b)
FDA Toxicologist and Task Force member, Dr Adrian Gross stated (Wilson l985): “They (G.D. Searle) lied and they didn’t submit the real nature of their observations because had they done that it is more likely that a great number of these studies would have been rejected simply for adequacy. What Searle did, they took great pains to camouflage these shortcomings of the study. As I say filter and just present to the FDA what they wished the FDA to know and they did other terrible things for instance animals would develop tumors while they were under study. Well they would remove these tumors from the animals.”
An FDA Toxicologist explained why their experiments were invalidated: “It is highly unlikely the FDA Investigative teams found all of the problems with G. D. Searle’s studies. G. D. Searle seemed so intent on covering up their misconduct, that it is quite likely that they were able to hide many of the problems from the FDA.
G. D. Searle did not want these damaging remarks to expose them and filed suit to get them taken out of the record.
September 30, l980: FDA’s Aspartame Board of Inquiry revoked the petition for approval because aspartame had not been proven safe and there was the question of cancers. Rumsfeld was on President Reagan’s transition team and the day after he took office appointed Arthur Hayes as FDA Commissioner. Dr. Hayes over-ruled the FDA Board of Inquiry and then went to work for the Public Relations Agency of the manufacturer on a 10 year consultant’s contract, $1000.00 a day. Hayes had refused to talk to the press ever since and died February 11, 2010.
- Congressional hearings in l985 and l987 told the horrors of what had been going on in the population. Monsanto had already bought Searle. There were so many complaints the FDA didn’t want them began referring the victims to the AIDS Hotline, as they later admitted. Dr. Jacqueline Verrett, a former FDA toxicologist and member of the FDA task force told Congress the original studies were “built on a foundation of sand.” In a 1987 Senate hearing she testified that flawed tests conducted by Searle – used as the basis of FDA approval – were a “disaster” and should have been “thrown out.” She said that even then, years after approval, the safety of aspartame and its breakdown products had not been determined. She emphasized aspartame is in the marketplace without basic toxicity information. Also that there are no data to assess the interactions with DKP, excess phenylalanine, other aspartame metabolites, additives, drugs or other chemicals. Today we know aspartame interacts with all drugs and vaccines and is a chemical hypersensitization agent. In the first Italian study the rats turned yellow from the formaldehyde.
- The regulatory agencies have strong ties to Big Pharma and in the US get over 50% of their funds from them. While the agencies try to play down the cancerous effect, even FDA Scientist and toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, spoke out in Congress .
The late FDA Toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, testified to the Senate: “In view of all these indications that the cancer-causing potential of aspartame is a matter that had been established way beyond any reasonable doubt, one can ask: What is the reason for the apparent refusal by the FDA to invoke for this food additive the so-called Delaney Amendment to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act? Is it not clear beyond any shadow of a doubt that aspartame has caused brain tumors or brain cancer in animals?”
- “Given that this is so (and I cannot see any kind of tenable argument opposing the view that aspartame causes cancer) how would the FDA justify its position that it views a certain amount of aspartame (50mgm/kgm body weight) as constituting an ADI (Allowable Daily Intake) or “safe” level of it? Is that position not equivalent to setting a “tolerance” for this food additive and thus a violation of that law? And if the FDA itself elects to violate the law, who is left to protect the health of the public?”
THE MOST HIDEOUS CRIME
It has always been known aspartame causes birth defects. Professor of Pediatrics, Genetics, then at Emory University, Louis Elsas, M.D, said in congressional testimony on 11/8/87: “I have spent 25 years in biomedical sciences trying to prevent birth defects caused by excess phenylalanine.
Therein lies my basic concern, that aspartame is in fact a well known neurotoxin and teratogen (causes birth defects) which will …irreversibly in the developing child or fetal brain produce adverse effects.” Yet their remains no warning to pregnant women not to use the toxin during pregnancy.
It was Jerome Bressler, after he retired from the FDA, who told me about studies sealed by the FDA. He kept telling me how bad the studies were, that they had to be found and the public notified. It took me 8 years to find them. Dr. Madelon Price who worked with Dr. John Olney 38 years as a biochemist finally found them. It seems that G. D. Searle made a deal with the FDA never to allow them to be seen by the public. They were neural tube defects – autism, cleft palate and spina bifida. I gave these studies to Lane Shore, Mission Possible Chicago, so he could return them to Jerome Bressler who at that time was in a nursing home. I told him we had added them back to the Bressler Report and now on www.mpwhi.com and other web sites. Shortly thereafter he died.
The FDA has known for over 30 years that aspartame triggers horrible birth defects, and yet in loyalty to the manufacturer has told the public its safe. Women get married with the hope of having a family. First if they are on aspartame they can’t get pregnant because it stimulates prolactin, changes the menses and causes infertility. Then if they get off aspartame and get pregnant, and get back on it again its an abortifacient and a teratogen,. Aspartame also damages the mitochondria and causes male sexual dysfunction and ruins female response. Just imagine how aspartame destroys families. Dr. James Bowen tells it all in Aspartame Murders Infants: http://www.rense.com/general/asp.htm
What we want to do is have anyone who gave birth after 1984 to fill out this form
Scan0033.pdf and email to Dr. Walton at firstname.lastname@example.org Or you can mail it to him at 41 Hanson Ave PO Box 1430 Chautauqua N.Y. 14722 You will also find this form on www.mpwhi.com , second banner down. You can make copies of it with his email and address and give it to health food stores and other places where people will see it, and this report should also be given to physicians who can warn their patients. Think how many cases of autism can be avoided or other birth defects.
It has just been reported that NutraSweet will stop making aspartame by the end of the year but other companies make it and we have to have it outlawed by the FDA but they are now loyal to Big Pharma and Big Chem who give them half their funding.,
Here are some quotes from the beginning by FDA officials themselves and other researchers and physicians in the know. You can see from these it’s always been known that aspartame is a deadly chemical poison.
Lead FDA scientist and toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross to Congress : “In view of all these indications that the cancer-causing potential of aspartame is a matter that had been established way beyond any reasonable doubt, one can ask: What is the reason for the apparent refusal by the FDA to invoke for this food additive the so-called Delaney Amendment to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act? Is it not clear beyond any shadow of a doubt that aspartame has caused brain tumors or brain cancer in animals?”
Given that this is so (and I cannot see any kind of tenable argument opposing the view that aspartame causes cancer) how would the FDA justify its position that it views a certain amount of aspartame (50mgm/kgm body weight) as constituting an ADI (Allowable Daily Intake) or “safe” level of it? Is that position not equivalent to setting a “tolerance” for this food additive and thus a violation of that law? And if the FDA itself elects to violate the law, who is left to protect the health of the public?”
Dr. Adrian Gross also castigated the FDA in his concluding summary relative to aspartame that was submitted and sworn on November 3, 1987:
“Although in their report the GAO express the review that the FDA ‘followed its required process in approving aspartame (for marketing),’ I would sharply disagree with such evaluation. Although the FDA may have gone through the motions or it may have given the appearance of such a process being in place here, the people of this country expect and require a great deal more from the agency charged with protecting their public health. In addition to mere facade or window-dressing on the part of the FDA, they require a thorough and scientifically based evaluation by the Agency on the safety of the products it regulates. Unfortunately, this has clearly not been the case here,. And without this kind of assurance, any such ‘process’ or dance represents no more than a farce and mockery of what is truly required.”
Jerome Bressler, Compliance Officer of the FDA and author of the famous Bressler Report said these same last lines to me. He also said to me on the phone: “The FDA has removed two studies from my report, the worst, and the public doesn’t know about them. They show that aspartame is deadly and should never have been put on the market. You must find them and return them to my report so the public can find out. Please find them.” It took me 8 years and they are the teratology studies that showed aspartame would cause an epidemic of autism and horrible birth defects throughout the world, and that is what has happened.
Dr. Jacqueline Verrett, FDA toxicologist to Congress in 1987: Here is the whole testimony because it is so important: http://www.wnho.net/j_verrett_testimony.pdf She says in this testimony that aspartame still has not been proven safe. It was marketed in 1981 although it was told to me by the builder of the factory in Augusta, Georgia that they were selling it before approval. So six years after it was officially approved by FDA this toxicologist admits its on the market without being proven safe.
Senator Ted Kennedy in 1976: “The extensive nature of the almost unbelievable range of abuses discovered by the FDA on several major Searle products is profoundly disturbing.” Ted Kennedy was known to always have been chewing gum and died from a brain tumor. Since aspartame breaks down to DKP, a brain tumor agent and caused brain tumors in original studies it may have actually caused his death.
Russell Blaylock, M.D. “So in the case of diet drinks in aluminum cans, the very toxic brain aluminum fluoride compound co-exists with multiple toxins found in aspartame, thus creating the most powerful government-approved toxic soup imaginable. With the strong association between aluminum, excitotoxins, aluminum fluoride complexes and Alzheimer’s disease, it would be completely irresponsible to encourage people to consume this toxic mixture.” “Health and Nutrition Secrets that can save your life”
Dr. Russell Blaylock remarked on Dr.Morando Soffritti’s first study: “The study released in the European Journal of oncology by Morando Soffritti and co-workers should terrify mothers and all those consuming aspartame sweetened products. This was a carefully done study, which clearly demonstrated a statistically significant increase in several types of lymphomas and leukemias in rats. Both of these malignancies have increased significantly in this country since the widespread use of aspartame. The type of damage was a duplicate of that associated with cancers. Along with this most recent study, this means that drinking a single diet cola sweetened with developing a lymphoma or leukemia.”
Arthur Evangelista, former Investigator with the Food & Drug Administration: “When working for the Food & Drug Administration, it became quickly obvious that the Food and Drug Administration were not protecting the public health, whatsoever. There is a hidden agenda with the federal agencies, including the CDC and Institutes of Health. This agenda mimics the corrupted government’s agenda of their proposed New World DisOrder, and supports the Pharmaceutical’s business of disease, which is only profitable is there continues to be sick people. If people did get healthy, the drug companies would falter and lose profits
“Based on this, it is not in the interest of those greedy criminals to make people well and healthy. Thus, the Food & Drug Administration’s continued attacks on natural health, natural foods, and the vitamin industry.
“Yet, these parasites allow toxins and poisons in our foods. This is nothing short of depraved indifference for all the millions of people harmed and killed from their policies, and from their co-conspiring with the greedy, power-hungry corporations in the commercial food and drug business.”
Dr. Pauline Harding, Aspartame Detox Center, Chicago: “The unlabeled inclusion of aspartame in toothpaste is an insidious form of toxic ingestion. Patients who know to avoid aspartame in diet colas and other ingested sources often overlook toothpaste. Holding the aspartame-laden toothpaste in the mouth allows for sublingual (under the tongue) absorption of the aspartame directly into the blood stream. Patients feel betrayed to find that aspartame does not have to be labeled. Patients are impressed when neurologic symptoms including those of multiple sclerosis start to subside with the avoidance of all sources of aspartame. “
Mrs. Barbara Metzler, Mission Possible New Jersey. “My daughter was going blind and having seizures from drinking diet soda! Her ophthalmologist gave a speech at Grand Rounds at a local hospital in New Jersey and said that many of his patients started going blind from diet soda. She also had a drastic personality change and intellectual deterioration. She stopped drinking diet soda and luckily recovered.
“Aspartame gives me classic migraines. And, many, many people I know have been severely sickened by diet soda.”
Dr. Maria Alemany who did the Trocho Study that showed that the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol embalms living tissue and damages DNA: He said to me in Barcelona – “Betty, aspartame will kill 200 million people.”
Dr. James Bowen who has ALS from aspartame in a letter to the FDA over 20 years ago: “In my opinion, this has resulted in the mass poisoning of the American public as well as seventy-plus countries in the rest of the world. Watching FDA officials walk through the revolving door and be further rewarded by being promoted to other positions of high public responsibility is clear evidence of a government out of control.
“For this reason, I am opposed to labeling aspartame content of food and drinks. To do so would imply that the government is taking some sort of
responsible actionwhen the only responsible action would be to immediately take aspartame off the market, fully disclose its
toxicities, offer full compensation to the injured, public and criminally prosecute anyone who participated in the fraudulent placement
of aspartame on the marketplace.”
Dr. Spice Williams-Crosby, MS, MFS, PhD, Mission Possible Hollywood: ” SWEET DEATH! – To coin a phrase, “The truth is out there!” However, it has been difficult to come by. Countless victims, including investigators, lawyers, doctors, lay people, teachers, educators, regulators, and whistle blowers, have managed to piece together this highly complex puzzle and now see this issue for what it is.
The evidence is overwhelming. Nevertheless, many physicians are afraid of the truth for it would go against their belief in their own system. When a patient comes to them with any of the symptoms listed on the FDA adverse reaction list and they are not questioned to whether they are users of Aspartame, that neglected action should be considered medical negligence.
The same understanding holds true to the lay person that has a responsibility to do their own research and self-testing. To get to the truth, one would have to punch holes into the world with a propensity for creating a false reality of health. There are large government health associations and many other so-called health groups that have received substantial money, contributions, or stipends from the manufacturers of Aspartame in regards to promoting their product.
The very people who are supposed to be helping the public are willingly accepting underhanded bribes, in the name of financial support for their cause, for their own voracious greed and because of this diabolical system, the truth is screaming to be set free. Yes, it is true that Aspartame is the most tested product in the world; however, it is not true that it is safe. Does “most tested” imply safe for human consumption? More importantly, what were the results of these studies and how was Aspartame approved? An in-depth look at the history of Aspartame approval reveals a trail of suspicious methods and possible collusion between the FDA and the G. D. Searle Company.
Upon closer examination, the available research revealed that the manufacturers, G.D. Searle and Monsanto, along with the FDA are manipulating the public into believing that Aspartame is safe and allowing it to be used in everything from children vitamins to vaccines.
KEEP IN MIND: Section 1 of the Nuremberg Code begins with the following two sentences: “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision” (Nuremberg Code, 1949). The Manufacturers, FDA, and our government have broken this CODE when it comes to Aspartame! “
Dr Leonard Coldwell, NMD DNM PHD D.HUM CNHP “Aspartame is the most dangerous Neurotoxin that I personally know of. To me the dangers and damages are well documented and proven. To me there is no doubt that Aspartame is one of the leading toxins causing cancer. As I see it after reading all the documentation and all the studies and science in regards to Aspartame I believe Aspartame is a war against the existence of Humans. Aspartame causes cancer as well as nearly every other autoimmune disease that exists today. I am convinced that the over 800% rise in Cancer as well as Parkinson, Alzheimers, MS and many other in numbers exploding Terminal Conditions are caused by Aspartame. Dr Betty Martini has the most valuable information about aspartame toxicity and the natural cancer cure in my mega best selling book:” The Only Answer to Cancer”
Dr. Woodrow Monte, author of “While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills”:“Something very wrong is going on, something that is killing good people and causing untold suffering to families and communities around the world. Never has such a high percentage of the population been afflicted with so many tragic and wasting illnesses. In the past thirty years, a group of diseases has reached epidemic proportions in the United States and many other countries. These diseases … incluude multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, melanoma and autism, a once rare birth defect. … Mankind endures a plague whose point of origin distinctly coincides with the Food and Drug Administration’s 1981 approval of aspartame – an artificial sweetener containing methanol, which is metabolized into deadly formaldehyde within the brain and sinew of all who consume it.”
Dr. Bill Deagle in explaining how aspartame is genetically engineered:
“Most people when asked how Aspartame is made do not have the first step of understanding. While an E.R. doctor and primary care physician in Augusta, GA in 1987 and 1988, I was told a number of interesting facts about the adjacent Aspartame factory. Bacteria with genes inserted generate a sludge which is centrifuged to remove the aspartame and many hundreds of contaminant organic and amino acids are present. We were told not to report illness or worker’s compensation issues for fear of being fired by the hospital, now the Augusta Regional Medical Center. Many of their employees presented with psychiatric, neuropathy conditions, chronic fatigue and organic cases of loss of cognitive function. This powder from the dried sludge was then transported for packaging in factories elsewhere in the US, before sale as Equal and now the myriad of names of this neurotoxin.” Bill Deagle, M.D.
Dr. Deagle told me he considers aspartame more dangerous than depleted uranium because of its ubiquitous presence in food.
National Soft Drink Assn (now American Beverage) objected to using aspartame in soda and after writing some of their objections turned around and lobbied for NutraSweet. Here are some of those objections:
(Docket No. 82F-0305)
DRAFT: JULY 28, 1983
Objection One: Searle has not demonstrated to a reasonable certainty that aspartame and its degradation products are safe for use in soft drinks. Without quantitative limitations, under temperatureconditions likely to prevail in the United States.
I. SUMMARY OF BASIS FOR OBJECTION
Aspartame is inherently, markedly and uniquely unstable in aqueous media.
In a liquid, such as a soft drink, APM will degrade as a function of temperature and pH. Higher temperatures and more acidic liquids increase the rate of degradation. Higher temperatures may also affect the degradation products which are formed. Given the circumstance of APM’s unusual instability, reliable and comprehensive analyses of APMs degradation in soft drinks–both as to the rate of degradation (and the subsequent loss of sweetness) and to the confirmed identification of the major degradation products–is crucial to establish the safety of the use of APM. Without adequate identification of AMP’s significant decomposition products, it is not possible to find, to a reasonable certainty, that APM is safe. The data and information submitted by Searle in support of its petition to amend 21 C.F.R. 172.804 to permit APM use in soft drinks, however, do not demonstrate that APM is safe for use in soft drinks. These data are insufficient to establish safety because the petition lacks comprehensive, reliable and accurate analytical data on APM and the products “adversely affected:” by the issuance of the regulation authorizing the use of aspartame (“APM”) in soft drinks. As the national trade association representing the soft drink industry in this country, NSDA’s member soft drink manufacturers and soft drink franchisers are directly and immediately affected by the issuance of a regulation which authorizes the use of a new sweetener in its products. Approximately seventy-six percent of the nations 1600 soft drink manufacturers are active members of the Association. These members account for more than ninety percent of the soft drink production in this country. In addition, the vast majority of soft drink franchisers which manufacture the concentrates and syrups from which soft drinks are made are associate members of the Association.
II. SUMMARY OF BASIS FOR THE OBJECTIONS
OBJECTIONS OF THE NATIONAL SOFT DRINK ASSOCIATION TO THE ISSUANCE BY THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION OF A REGULATION (21 C. F. R. 172.804) TO AUTHORIZE THE USE OF ASPARTAME IN CARBONATED BEVERAGES AND CARBONATED BEVERAGE BASES.
In the Federal Register of July 8, 1983 (48 Fed. Reg. 31376), the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) issued a regulation amending section 172.804 of its regulations, 21 C. F. R. 172.804 to authorize the use of aspartame in carbonated beverages and carbonated beverage bases (collectively referred to as “soft drinks”). This action was taken in response to a food additive petition (FAP 2A3661) filed on October 15, 1982 by the Searle Research and Development Division of the G. D. Searle Co. (“Searle”).
In these objections, NSDA demonstrates that there exist genuine and substantial issues of fact material to FDA’s amendment of its regulations to permit aspartame use in soft drinks. Specifically, Searle has not met its burdens under section 409 of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S. C. 348 (“FDC Act”) to demonstrate that aspartame is safe and functional for use in soft drinks NSDA therefore objects to the Commissioner’s order amending 21 C. F. R. 172.804 and requests that a hearing as provided under section 499 (f) of the FDC Act, 21 U.S.C. 348 (f) be convened.”
Since no new studies were done why did NSDA change their mind. Will they ever say?
Dr. Joe Mercola: “Aspartame is by far the most dangerous additive added to food on the market.”
Dr. Richard Wurtman in Congress: “When you have aspartame, you are not obtaining any of the other amino acids…which are present in all proteins (aspartame is not a protein) that block phenylalanine’s ability to pass from the blood to the brain. So even a small increase in blood phenylalanine will cause a very large increase in brain phenylalanine. To my knowledge, NO OTHER FOOD THAT MANKIND HAS EVER EATEN CAUSES THE CHANGES IN BRAIN CHEMISTRY THAT ARE PROVIDED BY ASPARTAME. ”
Dr. Wurtman claimed to have over 250 cases of aspartame seizures. In 1986 the Community Nutrition Institute, Attorney James Turner, tried to have aspartame banned because of the seizures and blindness. It was taken all the way to the Supreme Court and the judge had more than enough evidence to ban it, and didn’t., Why? He should be made to answer. Since then millions have gone blind and had seizures no doubt.
Cynthia Mueggenborg in 1986 attended the National Consumer Conference. She wrote, “There I heard a representative of the FDA tell 3000 folks that FDA was pulling aspartame from human usage as it caused seizures, blindness and was a multipotential carcinogen,” Yet since that time with full knowledge the FDA has continued to tell the public that aspartame is safe knowing what can happen to them.
Dave Rietz, creator of www.dorway.com on aspartame: “Aspartame is a Pandora’s box of chameleon-like toxins and tumor agents that has 92 FDA acknowledged ways to ruin your life, death being one of them.” Dave died in 2004 from aspartame. Just before he died he called me and said, “I’m sending you another aspartame case – she has lupus, please save her. I can’t do anymore. I’m dying.”
Senator Ortiz y Pino: “It’s only a matter of time until even Ajinomoto’s money won’t be able to block the unavoidable link between these unnecessary products and our decline in health. .. When that happens, as it finally did to tobacco and lead and other heavy meteals found in gasoline, we will act. The sad thing is that thousands of deaths and ruined lives will occur between now and then.” …“One of the cruel ironies to aspartame is that it was supposed to create sugar free soft drinks for the benefit of diabetics. Since it introduction, the incidence of diabetes has soared. Some critics link the two … With all the money and muscle behind it, aspartame has evaded its comeuppance for another year. But the final reckoning can only be postponed, not avoided,”
Senator Ortiz y Pino sponsored the bill to ban aspartame in New Mexico. The valiant fight of New Mexico led by Stephen Fox is a model for citizens worldwide.
Dr. Ken Stoller and I testified before the Senate and House. When Dr. Stoller (Pediatrician and has the New Mexico Aspartame Detox Center) testified before the Senate he noticed most were sipping addictive Diet Coke. He said, “Seeing most of you drinking Diet Coke I don’t think we are going to get anywhere today but at least have mercy on the children.”
They didn’t. A generation of children have been damaged by aspartame because aspartame triggers ADD, ADHD, and autism and interacts with drugs and vaccines. Dr. Russell Blaylock said “Since aspartame can increase obesity and may even cause the metabolic syndrome that affects 48 million Americans, there is no reason to ever consume this product. At the least, it should be immediately banned from all schools.”
Cori Brackett who produced the aspartame documentary: “Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World”: “In getting off of aspartame, I learned to listen to my body – that was the key! Our bodies contain profound wisdom… if we listen. When I was first diagnosed with MS, I was horrified. But then I learned that once you arrive at the other side of illness, extreme wonder, beauty and happiness await you. Don’t give up – don’t ever give up!” Be sure to get your copy of Sweet Misery from Cori at email@example.com See the world experts and listen to their wise comments.
All one has to do is go to google on any day and read articles and new studies to know how deadly aspartame is. All the information has always been a matter of record from the FDA records, congressional records and almost 100% of independent scientific peer reviewed studies. There are the front groups and the “ladies of the evening” or trade organization who are funded by the manufacturers and industry but everyone knows to follow the money. Recently the European Food Safety Authority did a review and as new studies came in showing aspartame triggers heart attacks, strokes, raises fasting blood sugar and other problems they simply didn’t know what to do. Before them were 82 scientific peer reviewed studies by independent researchers so they threw them away and said they were unreliable. It’s EFSA who is unreliable. Their own head of the committee, Herman Koeter, resigned after releasing notification they EFSA was pressured by industry to hijack science. Confession is good for the soul.
I’ve listed many quotes to show its all in the records, and the toxicity is well known. I could have listed hundreds more. Hitler murdered millions but I believe like Dr. Alemany that aspartame can murder 200 million people, and probably already has. It has altered the DNA of humans and it may never be known the extent of its evil. The most heinous of crimes of the FDA was to seal the teratology studies knowing full well aspartame would cause autism and other horrible birth defects and never even add a pregnancy warning. We need thousands of cases for Dr. Walton of those who have given birth since 1984. Everyone help us. We must get it off the market.
For over 20 years I’ve taken the cases, hurt for the suffering and written the obituaries. Congress had an opportunity to put a moratorium on aspartame and allow the National Institute of Health to do independent studies on the problems being seen in the population,. Even they let the people down and some took money from the manufacturer. Disgraceful. Until aspartame is removed from the market no one is safe. It’s in the water, in food unlabeled and hard to avoid. Everyone in the FDA who has told the public its safe knowing its not should resign and all those responsible for approval should be prosecuted. Physicians hands are tied not even knowing that aspartame interacts with drugs and vaccines. Hospitals are full of the toxin. The extent of the crimes are unbelievable. Aspartame triggers psychiatric and behavioral problems and interacts with all antidepressants. The experts have said the mental hospitals are full of patients who are simply aspartame victims. Dr. H. J. Roberts says when you see children killing children you have to consider aspartame. It should be removed from the schools immediately.
Let aspartame awareness be everyday and save a life a day until we can get it removed. The FDA refuses to answer citizens petitions for ban and the imminent health hazard under the requirements of law saying only they have more important things to do.
I was actually called by FDA and when I said people are sick and dying everywhere I was told, “So what we have to depopulate.,”
Their modus operandi is to postpone so they never have to answer. The FDA let loose the hounds of sickness and death on an unsuspecting population causing people to be poisoned allowing disability, disease and destruction the world over.
