NO SAFE DOSE OF ASPARTAME

“But I only use a small amount of aspartame, could it harm me?”
Yes, it’s a cumulative poison.
On August 1, 1985, FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress that at least one of Searle’s studies “has established beyond any reasonable doubt that aspartame is capable of inducing brain tumors in experimental animals and that this predisposition of it is of extremely high significance. … In view of 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?”
The Delaney Amendment makes it illegal to allow any residue of cancer-causing chemicals in foods. Dr Gross concluded by asking, “Given the cancer-causing potential of aspartame, how would the FDA justify its position that it views a certain amount of aspartame as constituting an allowable daily intake or ‘safe’ level of it? Is that position in effect 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?” Congressional Record SID835:131 (8/1/85)
So, the FDA violated the law! Dr. Morando Soffritti of the Ramazzini Institute performed three aspartame studies – all show aspartame is a “multipotential carcinogen.” When the first one was released in 2005, Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D reviewed it and declared:
“The new 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.
“This study confirmed the previous study by Dr. Trocho and co-workers, which also found the formaldehyde breakdown product of aspartame to be damaging to cellular DNA and that this damage was accumulative. 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 aspartame every day could increase one’s risk of developing a lymphoma or leukemia”
As it happened, I visited Dr. Maria Alemany in Barcelona who did the Trocho Study: He told me aspartame will kill 200 million people. Has it already? (See http://www.mpwhi.com/formaldehyde_from_aspartame.pdf; it showed that the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol embalms living tissue and damages DNA.)
Let’s sum up. The FDA toxicologist who investigated aspartame said you couldn’t even set an allowable daily intake because it causes cancer, and the FDA violated the law by allowing it on the market. World-renowned neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. said just drinking a single diet cola sweetened with aspartame every day could increase one’s risk of developing lymphoma or leukemia. A brilliant researcher, Dr. Alemany, said aspartame will kill 200 million people; and this is just for starters!
J. Roberts, M.D. produced the 1038-page medical text, “Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic,” which explained the mechanism by which aspartame can trigger or precipitate horrible fatal diseases and interact with drugs and vaccines, plus much more. Psychiatrist Ralph Walton, M.D., who has written on the psychiatric and behavioral problems aspartame causes, did research for the television program 60 MINUTES showing nearly 100% of independent scientific peer-reviewed studies show the problems that aspartame causes. Dr. James Bowen says aspartame turns your tissues to plastic (http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_turns_tissues_to_plastic.htm). Dr. Woodrow Monte, author of While Science Sleeps, explains how the FDA made a deal with the manufacturer to seal and hide studies by the manufacturer showing aspartame causes birth defects. Now we have an epidemic of autism. Several of these experts on aspartame have written on how it causes sudden cardiac death. See www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_and_sudden_death.htm.
Dr. Bill Deagle explained how aspartame is made: “While an E.R. doctor and primary care physician in Augusta, Georgia 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 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.”
Now you know how it is made. Dr. Deagle says they get the E. Coli from the sanitation department. So it goes from your toilet, to the sanitation department, to the aspartame industry, and then in the at least 14,000 foods and drugs with aspartame/ NutraSweet/AminoSweet/E951/Canderel ingredients. Bon Appetit!
Aspartame releases methyl alcohol (one ounce is fatal), then formaldehyde, which gradually accumulates in a process of self-embalming. The formaldehyde bonds to fat, forming adducts, which your kidneys cannot filter out, so you gain weight. Our obesity epidemic coincides precisely with the introduction of aspartame. FDA once listed 92 reactions from 10,000 consumer complaints, including four types of seizures, sexual dysfunction, and death.
So the next time somebody says, “But I just use a little bit,” ask if they are really that tired of life?
