Human studies on aspartame show the same as rat studies. Dr. Morando Soffritti found aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen causing everything from leukemia and lymphoma to lung, liver and breast cancer. It is against the law to approve anything that causes cancer according to the Delaney Amendment. Even the late FDA scientist and toxicologist on August 1, 1985 told the Senate that since aspartame caused brain tumors and brain cancer it violated the Delaney Amendment and the FDA should not have even been able to set a daily allowable dose. His last words will never be forgotten. "And if the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public?"
When Dr. Soffritti did the first study, Dr. Russell Blaylock said: "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.
"They also found an increased incidence of malignant brain tumors, even though it was not statistically significant. This does not mean there is no association to brain tumors, since only the animals exposed to aspartame developed the tumors. With children and pregnant women drinking the largest amount of diet colas, this puts their children at the greatest risk of developing one of these horrible diseases. Their study found that even low doses of aspartame could cause these malignancies; yet, the higher the dose, the more cancers that were seen.
"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."
The only thing the FDA did was try to cover up the study. The FDA should be completely eliminated and replaced with an agency concerned with consumer safety that has no ties to industry. The agency should be funded by the government instead of Big Pharma such as done now. Big Pharma is their customer and fund over 50% to the FDA. Now Big Pharma has taken over the FDA. Dr. Jacqueline Verrett who testified before Congress wrote a book, "Eating May be Dangerous to Your Health" and mentioned until the FDA is backed up against the wall by consumer power it won't change. She testified in 1987 and even though aspartame was approved in 1981 she admitted aspartame had never been proven safe and, of course, can never be proven safe because it’s a chemical poison.
The FDA has said for years if they find any science that proved aspartame harmful they would do something so the FDA has lied for over 30 years. Almost 100% of independent scientific peer reviewed studies have shown the harm yet FDA has done nothing. In 2009 the FDA admitted they were broken so when you write them it’s just an extension of Big Pharmacy. Congress did nothing.
Dr. James Bowen who got Lou Gehrigs from aspartame wrote them years ago and told the FDA it was mass poisoning of the American public and over 70 countries of the world. The FDA sent out an agent who complained that FDA educated them down to every point. Dr. Bowen gave them 29 more cases of aspartame diseases. Dr. M. Alemany who did the Trocho Study showing the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol embalmed living tissue and damages DNA told me in Barcelona that aspartame would murder 200 million, probably already has. Yet the Fatal Drugs Allowed folks with such a damaging study just ignored it. They become just as responsible for the death and disability of millions of humans the world over as the manufacturers who know they are marketing a poison. Pepsi who took it out because of the health problems says they will put it back in. They have full knowledge because they are part of the National Soft Drink Association (now American Beverage) who protested because of the breakdown, adulteration, using the wrong tests to hide all the results and other problems. Then they lobbied for NutraSweet. No one should ever buy Coke and Pepsi again, no matter what products they sell.
What does it take to get this deadly poison off the market that is murdering people the world over? It is in every generic gastrointestinal drug as verified to me by a physician at Gwinnett Medical. If you want to see the power of the aspartame industry and Big Pharma the Supreme Court says you cannot sue if you are harmed by a generic drug: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/25/business/justices-rule-generic-makers-not-liable-for-drugs-design.html What kind of Supreme Court is this that cares now about the population and sides with Big Pharma.
I saw one report that said aspartame was in over 2000 drugs but Stephen Fox, Mission Possible New Mexico said on his checking it was over 6 or 7000. It's in generic brands like Zofran and Raglan. You no longer can take any prescription drug without checking first if it has aspartame. They told me while I was in the hospital it was not in these drugs and it has wrecked my body even causing gastroparesis. It hardens the synovial fluids. #2 on the FDA list is loss of balance and I couldn't even walk across the room. No wonder they have "falling signs" now on hospital rooms.
Aspartame is illegally on the market and is causing havoc, disability and death the world over. What does it take to get it off the market? Here is information from Dr. H. J. Roberts medical text on aspartame and drug interaction: http://www.mpwhi.com/interference_with_drug_action_2.pdf and part of my case in the hospital. http://www.mpwhi.com/iatrogenesis_aspartame.htm Take this seriously folks as I stopped breathing three times, and broke out with urticaria (hives) from head to foot. Then the hospital actually gave me a prescription for more aspartame. So many people are no doubt dying from drug interaction because of aspartame that news briefs are discussing adding another line on death certificates to add what really caused the death. They don't understand why people are just dropping dead no doubt.
You must read labels. If you don't buy it they can't sell it, and remember if you go in the hospital and tell them you are allergic to aspartame and all its products the hospital is responsible if they give it to you anyway as they did me. Big Pharma runs the hospitals as well. They give doctors "pink slips" if they don't prescribe what they want them to prescribe as a neurologist told me. It is your life. Dr. H. J. Roberts medical text is 1000 pages of diseases and symptoms triggered by this deadly chemical poison - "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic", http://www.amazon.com Pass it on, as Dr. Soffritti said, "it's a multipotential carcinogen" and received an award given only twice in history.
We are talking about a global epidemic - a plague and we need for everyone on planet earth to be educated. Many people get it and don't even know as I didn't, and I educated doctors in three hospitals. They don't realize its in so many of the generic drugs. Since pills don't require sweeteners they make them into drugs that breakdown in your mouth. It has to be on purpose because there is not a pharmaceutical company on this planet that doesn't know aspartame is poison. This was told to me by a Big Pharma whistleblower in the UK.
