Subject: Misinformation In The Daily Mail Needs To Be Corrected: Aspartame Is An Addictive Excitoneurotoxic Carcinogenic Drug, Documented By A Quarter Of A Century Of Research
This is misinformation. Obviously the manufacturers attorneys have been intimating your paper. The problems are documented. Dr. John Olney wrote the FDA Board of Inquiry in l980 49 pages on how aspartame destroys the brains of our children. http://www.wnho.net/dr_olney1.doc Here's theReport For Schools documenting fact after fact. http://www.mpwhi.com/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm
Watch the aspartame documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, with testimony by the world experts on how aspartame disease has poisoned the world: http://www.javno.com/en/lifestyle/clanak.php?id=92358 VIDEO: Aspartame http://www.javno.com/en/lifestyle/clanak.php?id=92358 - Silent Killer in Colas and Gum Javno.hr, Croatia - Oct 24, 2007
The FDA's own report of 92 symptoms including dizziness and mood problems record these problems on their stationery. http://www.mpwhi.com/92_aspartame_symptoms.pdf
Why say no cancer when the late FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, admitted to Congress that not only did aspartame cause brain tumors but that the FDA violated the Delaney Amendment that forbids putting anything that causes cancer in food. Because of the brain tumors he said that they should not have been able to set an allowable dose. http://www.mpwhi.com/the_fda_fable.htm The Ramazzini Study in 2005 peer reviewed by seven world experts showed aspartame (NutraSweet,Equal/Canderel/E951, Benevia) to be a multipotential carcinogen. The second Ramazzini Study showed even small doses could cause cancer. FDA admitted the cancer over two decades ago.
The blood sugar issue is very serious. H. J. Roberts, M.D., diabetic specialist, discusses in Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com how aspartame can actually precipitate diabetes, simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, keeps blood sugar out of control, causes diabetic to go into convulsions, destroys the optic nerve and even interacts with insulin. Here it is in Journal of the Diabetic Journal of India: http://www.dorway.com/barua.html
There is 50% phenylalanine in aspartame which floods the brain as a neurotoxin. It lowers the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin triggering psychiatric and behavioral problems. It also interacts with all antidepressants as brought out in Dr. Roberts medical text. Here is the latest from Dr. Ralph Walton, Psychiatrist: http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_and_psychiatric_disorders.htm Aspartame destroys the immune system which is the reason it triggers chronic fatigue syndrome. A study at the University of Florida some years ago proved that when aspartame and MSG are withdrawn, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia disappear.
You say: "We accept that the current evidence demonstrates no link between the sweetener and theseconditions" What you really mean is the manufacturers have asked the Daily Mail to acknowledge this misinformation. Their studies and purely independent, unbiased studies were researched by Dr. Ralph Walton back in l996 for 60 Minutes and showed that 92% of independent scientific peer reviewed research shows the problems. http://www.dorway.com/peerrev.html Even in the last 24 months there have been 13 more studies showing toxicity: http://www.mpwhi.com/13_aspartame_research_studies.htm
I have lectured twice in the UK and listened to the cries of those who suffer from these problems from aspartame. The records document they exist. Medical texts like Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills also discusses these problems. http:// www.russellblaylockmd.com Dr. Blaylock's DVD, Nutrition and Behavior discusses extensively behavioral problems and the studies.
I insist the truth be told and not be covered up because of the pressure of aspartame manufacturers who know the facts are now all over the world. Please call me if you have need for more evidence in order to publish.
