I wonder how they will rebut this one. Usually the modus operandi of the government agencies sold out to the manufacturers, front groups who are paid, professional or trade organizations who are funded, (ladies of the evening), and the manufacturers themselves and those who use it in products simply deny or ignore. Almost 100 % of independent scientific peer reviewed studies all over the world show the problems and enough to take it off the market. It certainly should not have been approved in the first place as FDA records show. Aspartame was gotten on the market through the political chicanery of Don Rumsfeld and conflict of interests, The FDA's Board of Inquiry revoked the petition for approval - http://www.mpwhi.com - banner, and FDA first tried to have G. D. Searle indicted for fraud but both US Prosecutors hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired.
Email me at BettyM19@mindspring.com for the Aspartame Resource Guide. It will have some of the history, medical texts, movies, detox, etc. Also check out http://www.dorway.com - "doctors speak out" and read Dr. Ralph Walton's research showing almost 100% of independent peer reviewed studies show the problems. It was done for 60 Minutes. On my web site you can read other scientific peer reviewed research, see buttons at top of page.
