I first saw their report on Google from Law360 there were only two paragraphs.
Later the rest of the release was added on google news and I realized
FDA was actually responding to my 2002 petition for the toxic sweetener
to be banned. FDA mentions also Dr. K. Stoller's petition but omitted
the vital fact that Stoller is an M.D.
appreciate Law360 for revealing FDA's long delayed answer to my
petition. FDA apparently doesn't want to communicate directly to me
because I have their records and can expose their coverup. They
won't even answer a FOIA request from 2010. By law a citizen's
petition for ban must be answered in 180 days. FDA had told me they
had more important things to do. The imminent health hazard
amendment in 2007 that is suppose to be answered in a week or ten
days was ignored.
I just wrote a long and detailed report
answering what I had read from Law360 showing FDA's many lies:
Now having read the rest mentioning my petition this is part two.
Some of their additional absurd remarks need to be explained.
Basically they have denied the petition saying aspartame doesn't
cause cancer because they know it's against the Delaney Amendment to
approve something that does. In the first part I quoted Dr. Adrian
Gross, FDA's lead scientist and toxicologist, who clearly stated
aspartame causes cancer. FDA lies about this to protect the poison
producers, letting the public sicken and die. In 2009 I received a
call from FDA's Michael Delaney upset that I had added the imminent
health hazard amendment. He made everything clear when he said: "We
have to depopulate!"

Apparently FDA is in agreement.

becomes free methyl alcohol when consumed and is classified as a

Rejects Ban On Diet Soda Sweetener Aspartame
us on: By Jeff
Law360, New York (October 27, 2014, 6:58 PM ET) -- The U.S. Food
and Drug Administration
has rejected calls to ban low-calorie sweetener aspartame, finding no
evidence that the widely used diet soda additive causes cancer.
responses released Friday, the FDA shot down two citizen petitions
that urged regulators to recall the ingredient and to revoke a
regulation that allows its use in food. Aspartame is sold under the
brand name NutraSweet, is a component of coffee sweetener Equal and
is commonly used in popular soft drinks, including Diet Coke.
of the FDA's responses addressed a petition originally lodged in 2002
Mission Possible World Health International,
a group focused in large part on the purported dangers of aspartame
consumption. That petition attracted more than 1,000 public comments,
although most have not been published by the FDA.
the FDA, the petition blamed incidences of brain tumors and seizures
on aspartame but failed to back up its allegations with concrete
The anecdotal accounts of adverse effects of aspartame
cited in the citizen petition are not supported by scientific
evidence, FDA officials said.
Regulators at times suggested
that the concerns are nothing new, writing that some of the alleged
health risks were raised roughly 30 years ago and addressed in detail
at the time.
Over the past decade, almost 200 adverse events
tied to aspartame have been reported to the FDA, but there is little
reason to give much credence to those supposed side effects,
according to Fridays response.
FDA has not identified any
causal link between aspartame consumption and the reported adverse
events, and does not know of an established mechanism that would
explain how aspartame is associated with the reported adverse events,
the agency said.
One of the petitions specific concerns was
that consuming aspartame results in harmful production of methanol,
but the FDA said that such production is small compared to methanol
that results from eating perfectly safe foods, such as apples and
In any event, data reviewed by the FDA shows that
methanol in aspartame or in fruits and juices does not accumulate in
the body and is easily metabolized by the body's metabolic
capacities, Fridays response said.
A second response posted
Friday was directed at petitioner K. Paul Stoller, who in 2009
requested revocation of the aspartame regulation. Much of the
response discussed a study conducted by an aspartame-focused group
called the European Ramazzini Foundation, with the FDA saying that it
has not been able to access full study data and that the studys
integrity appears to have been compromised.
Despite your many
assertions, you have not identified any scientific data or other
information that would cause the agency to alter its conclusions
about the safety of aspartame, the FDA wrote to Stoller.
aspartame has been used abundantly around the world for many years,
lingering worries about its safety have forced companies that use the
artificial sweetener to constantly defend the ingredient. The

concerns have presented a business opportunity for some corporations,
including Israel-based SodaStream International Ltd. Some of the
company's do-it-yourself soda syrups include labeling that
prominently says, No aspartame.

continues: The release says: " According to the FDA, the
petition blamed incidences of brain tumors and seizures on aspartame
but failed to back up its allegations with concrete data."
First of all, it was the FDA themselves who revoked the petition for
approval based on the brain tumor issue and the fact it had
caused brain tumors and brain cancer in original Searle studies.
Go to my web site and read the entire 50 pages where the FDA
discusses their own concern about aspartame causing brain tumors:
Scroll down to the banners. Secondly, one of the reasons the FDA
tried to have G. D. Searle indicted for fraud was that as the rats
developed brain tumors they would excise the tumors, put the rats
back in the study and when they died they would resurrect them on
paper. Thirdly, why would anyone not think aspartame triggers
brain tumors when the molecule breaks down to diketopiperazine, a
brain tumor agent?
Actually in the original report I
wrote about this release, URL above, I went into other studies and
reports on the subject in detail. Having taken the cases for
over 20 years from those who suffered aspartame brain tumors I have
never forgotten the case of a young 28 year attorney Kelli Motluck
who had a head full of aspartame brain tumors who also discussed with
me many other aspartame users she knew who had brain tumors. G.
D. Searle sold to Monsanto in 1985 and was the owner at the time
Kelli called me. In her last conversation she said to me, "I
want to live, I want to live, I want to live, but if I die promise me
you will tell the world Monsanto murdered me." After her
death I lectured in the UK in 2000 and in the lecture to the Green
Party and press I did this.
Blaylock, M.D., author of 'Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills'
about aspartame and brain tumors on page 212 - 213:
is interesting to note that the first experiments done to test the
safety of aspartame before its final approval in l981 disclosed a
high incidence of brain tumors in the animals fed NutraSweet. In
fact, this study was done by the manufacturer of NutraSweet, G. D.
Searle. In this study 320 rats were fed aspartame and 120 rats were
fed a normal diet and used as controls. The study lasted two years.
At the end of the study twelve of the aspartame fed rats had
developed brain tumors (astrocytomas), while none of the control rats
had. This represented a 3.75% incidence of brain tumors in the rats
fed aspartame, which was twenty-five times higher than the incidence
of spontaneous brain tumors developing in rats (0.15%). "
study divided the rats into those exposed to low doses of aspartame
and those exposed to a high dose. In the low dose group five of the
rats developed brain tumors for and incidence of 3.13%. In the high
dose group, seven developed brain tumors (4.38%). This indicates a
dose related incidence of brain tumors. The higher the dose of
aspartame, the more brain tumors were induced. "
Dr. John Olney pointed out these findings to the FDA "Aspartame
Board of Inquiry" he was told that the high incidence of tumors
was the result of spontaneous development of brain tumors in rats.
That is, that some rats develop brain tumors naturally, just as
humans do. Dr. Olney is a trained neuropathologist as well as a
neuroscientist. He reviewed the incidence of spontaneously occurring
brain tumors in rats and found that out of seven studies using a
total of 59,000 rats and only 0,08% developed brain tumors - the
aspartame fed rats had a forty-seven fold higher incidence. But to be
fair, he even accepted G. D. Searle's references for spontaneously
developing brain tumors in rats and arrives at a figure of 0.15%.
This was still a twenty-five fold higher incidence in the aspartame
fed rats than in the controls. "
"It was then
observed that when brain tumors develop spontaneously in rats, the
rate at which they appear begins to accelerate after two years of
age, exactly when the Searle's study ended. Importantly, brain tumors
are extremely rare before age one and one-half in the rat. So in
truth the incidence of spontaneously occurring brain tumors would be
even less than cited above. Yet, the aspartame fed rats developed two
tumors by sixty weeks of age and five tumors by seventy weeks."
a collective study of 41,000 rats no tumors were seen to occur before
sixty weeks and only one by seventy weeks. The fact that 320
aspartame fed rats developed six brain tumors by seventy-six weeks
indicates an "incredible and unprecedented" occurrence.
Within the final twenty-eight weeks of the study six more brain
tumors occurred in the aspartame fed group. Dr. Olney notes that "one
must assume that many more (brain tumors) would have occurred after
104 weeks. "
"It became obvious that the G. D.
Searle Company was trying desperately to protect their potential
billion dollar plus money maker. They claimed that more brain tumors
were found because they searched the pathological slides so
diligently. But, they searched just as diligently in the control rats
and found none. Besides, neuropathologists examining the slides later
stated that the tumors were large enough to be seen with the naked
"Because of the criticism submitted by Dr.
Olney, the G. D. Searle company conducted a second study which was
designed to be more comprehensive. Instead of a two-year study, this
would span the entire lifetime of the rats, from intrauterine life to
death. The results of this study can only be characterized as
bizarre. This time they reported five brain tumors in 120 control
rats (an incidence of 3.13%) and four brain tumors in 120 control
rats (an incidence of 3.33%). While this was designed to show that
aspartame was not the cause of the brain tumors, if accepted, the
study would indicate that both groups had a brain tumor incidence
thirty times higher than the known rate of spontaneous brain tumor
occurrence in rats."
"But the story gets even more
interesting, Dr. Olney hypothesized that one possible cause of the
tumor induction was a by-product of aspartame metabolism called
diketopiperazine (DKP). When nitrosated by the gut it produces a
compound closely resembling a powerful brain tumor causing chemical -
"The G. D. Searle company conducted
a separate study to test the carcinogenicity of diketopiperazine
(DKP). The results of this study were not submitted to the FDA until
after aspartame had already been approved for general use by the
American population. This study was not a lifetime study but rather a
115 week study which consisted of feeding rats their normal feed
mixed with DKP. There were 114 control animals and 216 that
supposedly ate the DKP. (Not all of the animals were even examined
for tumors.) There were two brain tumors in the controls (1.62%
incidence) and three (1.52% in the DKP groups. But strangely enough,
the incidence of brain tumors found in both groups were sixteen times
higher than would be expected from spontaneous occurring tumors. That
did not make sense."
"So how can we explain these
strange findings? It is instructive at this point to know that in
l975 the drug enforcement division of the Bureau of Foods
investigated the G. D. Searle company as part of an investigation of
"apparent irregularities in data collection and reporting
practices." The director of the FDA at that time stated that
they found "sloppy" laboratory techniques and "clerical
errors, mixed-up animals, animals not getting the drugs they were
supposed to get, pathological specimens lost because of improper
handling, and a variety of other errors, (which) even if innocent,
all conspire to obscure positive findings and produce falsely
"The drug enforcement division
carried out a study under the care of agent Jerome Bressler
concerning Searle's laboratory practices and data manipulation (known
as the Bressler Report He found that the feed used to test DKP
had been improperly mixed so that the animals would receive only
small doses of the chemical to be tested. (I have seen a photograph
of the feed mix and can attest to the "sloppy" method
used.) The commissioner also charged G. D. Searle company with
"failure to maintain control and experimental animals on
separate racks and failure to mark animals to ensure against mix-ups
between experiments (animals fed aspartame and DKP) and controls."
This vital and telling report was buried in a file cabinet, never to
be acted on by the FDA."
"Such poor techniques would
explain why both control animals and those eating aspartame had
exceptionally high brain tumor rates, since they, most likely, were
both eating the aspartame feed. What is ironic is that the FDA would
accept studies from a company with an obvious heavy financial
interest in having aspartame approved. But even more amazing is that
they would depend on the same company to provide studies that they,
FDA, knew beforehand were highly questionable and possibly fraudulent
upon which they would make such an important public safety
"Thus far, no independent studies have
been done to examine this vital issue. As a neurosurgeon I see the
devastating effects a brain tumor has, not only on its victim, but on
the victim's family as well. To think that there is even a reasonable
doubt that aspartame can induce brain tumors in the American
population is frightening. And to think that the FDA has lulled them
into a false sense of security is a monumental crime." (end of
quotes from book)
Searle's shenanigans and fraud were so
bad because they couldn't prove aspartame safe they needed help
to coverup the issue so on August 4, l976 they met with the FDA and
convinced them to allow them to hire a private agency, University
Associated for Education in Pathology (UAREP). As described by
Florence Graves (l984, page s5500 of Congressional Record
"The pathologists were specifically told that
they were not to make a judgment about aspartame's safety or to look
at the designs of the tests. Why did the FDA choose to have
pathologists conduct an investigation when even some FDA officials
acknowledged at the time that UAREP had a limited task which would
only partially shed light on the validity of Searle's testing? The
answer is not clear."
In other words, UAREP was sworn to
silence, and how much did they get to be quiet? They received a half
a million dollars!!!
Searle was intent on getting aspartame
approved. They had invested 19.7 million dollars in an incomplete
production facility and 9.2 million dollars in aspartame inventory.
On Dec 8, l975, stockholders filed a class action lawsuit alleging
that G. D. Searle had concealed information from the public regarding
the nature and quality of animal research at G. D. Searle in
violation of the Securities and Exchange Act (Farber l989, page
Aspartame also triggered mammary, uterine, ovarian,
pancreatic, testicular and thyroid tumors just for starters, not just
brain tumors. There were also pituitary adenomas.
seizure issue. It is hard to believe that the FDA would even
have the audacity to suggest there is not sufficient evidence.,
Searle's own study, 52 week oral toxicity on 7 infant monkeys,
showed that 5 had grand mal seizures and 1 died., Enter the
twilight zone. This study was used as pivotal in the approval
of aspartame to show safety. Here is that study in full:
Also, in 1986 the Community Nutrition Institute with Attorney James
Turner filed a petition to ban aspartame because so many people were
having seizures and going blind from the methanol. Cynthia
Mueggenborg wrote me that she was invited to attend the National
Consumer Conference by the head of a department at OSU in January of
1986. She said there she heard a representative of the FDA tell
3000 people that FDA was pulling aspartame from human usage as it
caused seizures and blindness. So here is the admission of the
FDA themselves. The reason it wasn't banned at that time as it
was taken to the Supreme Court in Chicago. I was told someone
got to the judge but I think that even today that judge should be
made to explain why he refused to allow aspartame to be banned.
It's common knowledge, for instance, that methanol blinds.
Evidence of the whole situation of
aspartame triggering seizures was sent to FDA by Mark Gold of the
Aspartame Toxicity Center,.
This report is so indepth he even goes through industry's studies
showing what they did in an attempt to deny the issue. In the
Rowen Study notice it was a one day study. Monsanto was so
afraid someone would have a seizure they gave 16 of the 18 subjects
anti-seizure medication and didn't tell anyone!
1996 my husband's Michigan cousin, Mary Lee, visited us on the way
to Florida with the news: "William Reed is dying, having 6 or 8
seizures a day and his physician has not been able to stop them."
I asked if he was using NutraSweet/Aspartame/Equal and was suffering
from MS symptoms, going blind, losing his memory and having
headaches. He was.
told her to call and tell him to stop the aspartame immediately. She
said: "He may already be dead." It was almost comical
to hear her say, "William, Betty says you don't have to die, get
she returned from Florida Mary Lee said William had abstained from
aspartame and the seizures had stopped. When she was leaving
she stood in the door and said, "Betty, do you realize if I had
not stopped in Atlanta William would be dead." This shows
you the importance of warning by all people. Because of the
lies of the FDA, trade organizations receiving funding from the
manufacturers and front groups people don't associate their aspartame
diseases and symptoms with the product., So they just keep dying
like William would have had not we gotten him the information.
June 19, 1997 Dr. Timothy K. Dickinson of the Allegan Medical Clinic
wrote: "William Reed is a 48 year old male with diabetes
mellitus type I, on insulin. I have been involved, as his
family physician, with his care since 1990. In September of
1995 he began describing episodes of generalized uncontrolled
shaking, lasting up to 30 seconds. He would afterward feel
good, and at times, euphoric. They would often be preceded by
periorbital aching. He initially interpreted these to reflect a
hyperglycemic state, and nothing abnormal showed up on his exam.
At a follkow up visit in October, they were still occurring, lasting
less than one minute, with mild tremoring, again preceded by the
retrobulbar aching, especially on the left. While I was with
the patient in the room at that visit, and he was on the exam table,
I witnessed one of these episodes, which I described as being
generalized clonus. He was able to tell me seconds before it
started that it was going to happen. He did not talk through
it. It lasted approximately 10-15 seconds, cleared for about
the same period of time and occurred again. During this time,
he tended to hyperextend or arch his back on the table. He
seemed to be weak, but not postictal afterwards, It was within
the next 6 weeks that a family member came to understand that
NutraSweet could cause problems of this nature, and within two days
of him discontinuing all Nutrasweet use, the seizures stopped and he
has none since that time. He has also had far fewer headaches
since then, He was able to resume driving, which he had ceased,
because of his fear of these episodes occurring while on the road."
Eighteen years have passed since Mary Lee said William
Reed was about to die, and he is still alive.
years ago I worked with an allergist and the way they find out the
culprit causing problems to the patient is called the "add back
system". They keep removing products from the patient's diet
until the problem stops. Then they add back the product and if
the symptoms return they know they have found what caused the problem
They don't call it anecdotal - they call proof.
taking aspartame seizures cases for over 20 years I could write a
book on the cases. Robin Goodwin's wife in the Falkland Islands
developed an aspartame brain tumor and had to be air lifted to
England. His daughter suffered seizures for 18 years. On
reading one of my articles he had his daughter abstain. She has
never had another seizure. Robin knew how hard it would be to
get aspartame banned because of the power and influence of industry,
so he wrote a letter to all the 3,000 or 4,000 Falkland islanders
warning them, and had the information published. We thank Robin
Goodwin, activist extraordinaire, for saving the lives of the people
of an island nation.
It should also be noted that when
Dr. Richard Wurtman of MIT decided to do studies on aspartame and
seizures he was threatened by the VP of Searle that if he did his
research funds would be rejected. They were. Read about it in
the UPI investigation by Gregory Gordon:
Scroll down to banners. Notice ILSI was set up, a research
funds front group. MIT now gets research funds but Dr. Wurtman
now refuses to speak out about aspartame. At one time he
reported to have over 200 cases of aspartame triggered seizures which
he said was enough to remove it from the market.
Rejection news release says: "The anecdotal accounts of
adverse effects of aspartame cited in the citizen petition are not
supported by scientific evidence,"
statement is laughable!
H. J. Roberts in Aspartame
Disease: An Ignored Epidemic
said: "Aspartame disease no longer can be ignored as incidental
anecdotal reactions. This sobering assertion has been validated
by personal observations, those of other physicians, the FDA data,
mounting epidemiologic evidence, and a host of experimental
studies. -- The clinical features are often severe -
especially headache, convulsions, impaired vision, dizziness,
confusion, profound memory loss, refractory fatigue, intense
depression, gross changes in personality or behavior, eating
disorders, loss of diabetes control, and the aggravation or
simulation of diabetic complications."
"But the medical profession has a tendency to discard out of
hand, and disparagingly, 'anecdotal' information. Digitalis,
morphine, quinine, atropine, and the like are chemical derivatives
that stem from anecdotal folklore remedies. After all, one
anecdote may be a fable, but 1,000 anecdotes can be a biography... A
vital function of the medical profession is to sift anecdotes and
submit them, if possible, to scientific evaluation. But it all
starts as anecdote." Dr. Charles Harris (1987)
what do you do with millions of anecdotes? Go to the Internet
and read them all day. I picked this one as an example:
by sydlee06 on Thu,
daughter started having very hard to control seizures in Nov 06, it
was continually getting worse. She had to be admitted to the hospital
3 times in March, the last time she was admitted I had read an
article about aspartame and seizures and stopped allowing it in her
diet. My husband is diabetic, so we used to have quite a few
aspartame sweetened things in the home, ie: pudding, jello, lemonade,
"She has not had a single seizure since stopping
aspartame in her diet. Not one, and she previously had 3 to 27 tonic
clonic daily and almost constant partial and absence seizures daily.
Her neuro did not say much about it when I told her about it, but as
for me that is proof enough. Not to mention that my migraines are
almost non existent since I quit drinking diet soda. I wish it would
get taken of the market, because now in a fight against obesity
schools are even using it in lunches. Which means my daughter can not
ever eat school lunches"
Dr. H. J. Roberts and I attended the Conference of the American
College of Physicians at the World Congress Center in Atlanta,
Georgia many years ago. We went to several workshops, especially
neurological. One professor said "Can anyone tell me even if
its off the wall why people everywhere are having seizures for no
reason?" Dr. Roberts insisted I explain and I told him about
aspartame. He seemed surprised. Another physician raised his hand
and said, "Professor, I'm afraid she is right., I'm not only a
physician but a pilot and have a friend who flies commercially and
has seizures. We're going to have to report him.," Mission
Possible also has an Aviation Division, and on www.mpwhi.com you can
read Dr. Russell Blaylock's excellent Aspartame Pilot Alert. I
started Mission Possible Aviation when Cliff Evans crashed his plane
on aspartame. He came to Atlanta to ask me to help the pilots. I've
gone so far as to visit the Air Force base in New Mexico when
industry got to "Flying Safety" and they retracted their
warning on aspartame. I couldn't let Air Force pilots believe the
retraction and one called to thank me and said he would get the info
all over the base. FAA told me that because the FDA approved this
toxin they couldn't legally do anything but on the side they warn
The FDA Rejects Ban release also says:
at times suggested that the concerns are nothing new, writing that
some of the alleged health risks were raised 30 years ago and
addressed in detail at the time." The wrong word was used,
not addressed but ignored.
cover-ups by government agencies is incredible. In November
1984 the CDC reviewed 213 of 592 cases of aspartame complaints.
Some of the reported symptoms included aggressive behavior,
disorientation, hyperactivity, extreme numbness, excitability, memory
loss, loss of depth perception, liver impairment, cardiac arrest,
seizures, suicidal tendencies, severe mood swings and death. The CDC
recommended future investigations of aspartame investigate the
neurological and behavioral problems and focus on symptoms such as
headaches, mood alterations and behavioral chances. So how was this
CDC report covered up? The CDC had Frederick L. Trowbridge add
an executive summary to the report which conflicts with the
investigation. He even said "Currently available
information, based on data with limitations as described in the
report, indicated a wide variety of complaints that are generally of
a mild nature." Frankly, I've never seen a mild case of
such things as cardiac arrest and grand mal eizures and death!
Next, CDC did not put the real investigation on their web site,
simply the summary which contradicted the report where it still
remains today. Check it out. In the aspartame
documentary, "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World" you will see
me holding up the real investigation and we have it on my web site of
the release says: "FDA has not identified any causal link
between aspartame consumption and the reported adverse events and
does not know of an established mechanism that would explain how
aspartame is associated with the reported adverse events,"
30 years they don't think physicians and researchers have documented
the mechanisms?! FDA has Dr. Roberts encyclopedic medical text.
Disease: An Ignored Epidemic"
which in discussing the diseases triggered or precipitated by
aspartame list the mechanisms. It not only precipitates
diabetes but simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and
neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into
convulsions and interacts with insulin. The free methyl alcohol
causes them to lose limbs.
Roberts was a diabetic specialist, once named The Best Doctor in the
United States by the medical publication, Practice
On page 542 of his text the headline says: "Mechanisms of
Aspartame's Diabetogenic Potential". Dr. Roberts even sent
one to the European Food Safety Authority. Would we even begin
to believe the FDA has none of the medical books giving these
mechanisms which are now known the world over, as well as all the
independent scientific peer reviewed studies?
"One of the petition's specific concerns was that consuming
aspartame results in harmful production of methanol, but the FDA said
that such production is small compared to methanol that results from
eating perfectly safe foods, such as apples and pears. In any event,
data reviewed by the FDA shows that "methanol in aspartame or in
fruits and juices - does not accumulate in the body and is easily
metabolized by the body's metabolic capacities,"
knows well that the single carbon methanol in fruit is always
accompanied by ethanol, the classic antidote to methanol poisoning
that takes it safely out of the body. Thus the classic first aid for
methanol poisoning is to administer whisky, ethanol, ethyl alcohol.
Furthermore in nature methanol binds to pectin., Dr. Ralph
Walton has repeatedly written about it. Now Dr. Woodrow Monte
has written a book about the methanol in aspartame, "While
Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills", www.whilesciencesleeps.com
National Health Federation recently published my article about this,
"Rotgut Aspartame: Methanol Mania":
Also see my report to FDA on www.mpwhi.com

issue. The Trocho Study has shown that the formaldehyde

FDA claim in their release: "In the past decade, almost 200
adverse events tied to aspartame have been reported to the FDA, but
there is little reason to give much credence to those supposed side
effects, according to Friday's response."
FDA published a list of 92 reactions to aspartame including
blindness, and sexual dysfunction from 10,000 volunteered consumer
complaints. They deny it now and have removed that report but access
and at the top of the page you will see the FDA's report of 92
symptoms from 4 types of seizures to coma and death.
many complaints FDA really received we will never know. In
Congressional hearings and we have them on web you will notice it was
reported that the FDA was so swamped with aspartame complaints they
were referring them to the AIDS Hotline. Dr. David Kessler once
said only 1% report adverse reactions to the FDA. He also said
that in 1996 they would grant blanket approval of aspartame if the
complaints went down. I figured they would probably stop taking
complaints to stop them from going up and they did. Call after
call from consumers told me the FDA refused to take their aspartame
complaint and said they were no longer taking them. That was
expected but how do you make existing complaints go down. They
did, check out the 1996 report on web. Dr. H. J. Roberts called
me absolutely furious at the way the FDA arrived at this reduction.
He said he had a letter that stated they had to change their
bookkeeping system and in order to do this they had to throw away
hundreds of aspartame complaints.
original manufacturer, G. D. Searle, actually released in
congressional hearings secret trade information which stated
aspartame could not be used for everything:
The FDA themselves said in the beginning you couldn't heat aspartame
which is why they originally only approved it in dry form.
However, I fail to see how its not heated when you put Equal in a hot
cup of coffee. Then in 1993 they approved it for baking!
For years I forwarded aspartame complaints to the FDA but
they never added them to their records. I finally realized FDA
will always protect aspartame to the bitter end. FDA works for
the poison makers. Many of the drugs they approve are later removed
and the TV is full of advertising by legal firms suing drug makers.
It's all about money! With that kind of money the drug makers make
