ASPARTAME, THE ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER, BEING CONSIDERED UNDER
CALIFORNIA'S PROPOSITION 65 FOR CARCINOGEN LABELING

Great news for Consumer Protection! California is making gigantic progress towards requiring the labeling the artificial sweetener, aspartame, as carcinogenic, through its power to do so under Proposition 65. Please write a short letter in to them in support of this huge beneficial step. The comment period ends about October 24, 2016. This move is long overdue, but welcome nonetheless, as California's standards could bring about the demise of manufacturing this neurotoxic carcinogen which is metabolized among other things as formaldehyde. Just think: every packet of Equal, every Diet soda, every sugarless gum: all turning to formaldehyde and then being lodged as formaldehyde in the RNA! How could this not play havoc with the body's biochemistry? Even the FDA lists 92 different symptoms caused by Aspartame.

You can thank Donald Rumsfeld for forcing its approval when he was President of the original patent holder, G.D. Searle.

The National Law Review reports that aspartame could be given a cancer warning under Prop 65. We have all the evidence, the late Dr. Adrian Gross, FDA toxicologist, testifying to Congress, 1985, that aspartame causes brain cancer and violates the Delaney Amendment. His famous last words were "And if the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public?"

If the FDA had not violated the law there would be no aspartame on the market and Mission Possible World Health Intl would never have been created to educate the world that it's an addictive, excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered drug, adjuvant and teratogen. It is a chemical poison,

Further, Dr. Morando Soffritti has done 3 studies showing aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen. Two of them are discussed on the Aspartame Resource Guide:

Harvard also did one saying it was the longest and strongest on cancer. Just recently a new human study became available showing aspartame causes lymphoma and leukemia.

Since we have all the evidence anyone could want, you realize this will be a fight between the facts and aspartame industry power. Below is information on the situation. While lengthy we need to cover the globe to get participation to make the facts win out. We are fighting for our lives as they put more and more aspartame products on the market and in many instances even unlabeled which is against the law. It requires a PKU warning for phenylketonurics who can't metabolize phenylalanine. Advantame has now been approved. Neotame is now in pork without labeling.

Comment Period - Prioritization 2016: Chemicals for Consultation by the Carcinogen Identification Committee

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) announces the beginning of a 45-day public comment period on the five chemicals or chemical groups listed below. These chemicals will be discussed at the November 15, 2016 meeting of the Proposition 65 Carcinogen Identification Committee (CIC).

The CIC is the states qualified experts on carcinogenicity for purposes of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65). The CIC will provide the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) with advice on the prioritization of these chemicals for possible preparation of hazard identification materials. At a later date, OEHHA will select chemicals for preparation of hazard identification materials and announce those decisions in a separate notice. No listing decisions will be made for these chemicals at the November 15 meeting.

OEHHA is the lead agency for the implementation of Proposition 65. The evidence of hazard used in this current round of prioritization is an epidemiologic data screen and an animal data screen. Chemicals or chemical groups passing either data screen were then subjected to a preliminary toxicological evaluation. This screening follows the

procedure described in the 2004 OEHHA document, Process for Prioritizing Chemicals for Consideration under Proposition 65 by the States Qualified Experts.

The five chemicals or chemical groups are:

Aspartame

Asphalt and Asphalt Emissions Associated with Road Paving and Asphalt and Asphalt Emissions Associated with Roofing

Methyl Chloride

Type I Pyrethroids

Vinyl Acetate

The CIC will consider these chemicals at its meeting on Tuesday, November 15, 2016. The meeting will be held in the Sierra Hearing Room at the CalEPA Headquarters building, 1001 I Street, Sacramento, California. The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. and will last until all business is conducted or until 5:00 p.m. The agenda for the meeting will be provided in an upcoming public notice published in advance of the meeting. OEHHA will send comments received on the prioritization documents for these chemicals to CIC members prior to the meeting.

Copies of the summaries of available scientific information on the chemicals and related attachments are available on OEHHAs web site or may be requested by calling (916) 445-6900.

One comment filed already by Dr. Ralph Walton, M.D.:

I would like to express my vigorous support of the prospect of labeling aspartame as a probable human carcinogen under Proposition 65. In our 2015 paper "Dietary Methanol and Autism" (Walton,RG, Monte,WC Dietary Methanol and Autism Medical Hypotheses 85 2015 441-446) Dr. Woodrow Monte and I point out that by far the biggest contributor of methanol to the human diet is the artificial sweetener aspartame. In the human body methanol is rapidly broken down to formaldehyde. In 987 the US Environmental Protection Agency classified formaldehyde as a probable human carcinogen. Thank you for your attention to this important issue.
