Subject: To Sabrina Hall, about your broadcast on aspartame: Hawaii
This is in response to the article, Lawmaker Pushing For Ban Of Artificial Sweetener, which may be found at: http://kgmb9.com/main/content/view/3933/40
Dear Ms. Hall:
Thank you for your story on aspartame and the public awareness. Aspartame is not an additive but a deadly addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug that interacts with drugs and vaccines. Please be assured that they knew this before it was ever approved. From the aspartame documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, http://www.soundandfury.tv here is Attorney James Turner in a clip explaining how Don Rumsfeld got it on the market after the FDA had revoked the petition for approval: http://www.soundandfury.tv/pages/rumsfeld.html FDA first tried to have the company indicted.
Did they know that aspartame caused cancer? Of course, they did. Even their own FDA toxicologists exposed the FDA in Congress because after Rumsfeld's political chicanery they gave their loyalty to the manufacturers. Here is what the late Dr. Adrian Gross told Congress:
On August 1, l985 the FDA's own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress 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 residues of cancer causing chemicals in foods. In his concluding testimony Gross asked, "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 (August 1, l985)
So you see Dr. Gross who was the one who asked for the indictment (both US Prosecutors hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired) said not only does it cause cancer and violates Delaney but the FDA, therefore, should not have been able to set an allowable daily dose of this carcinogen. Furthermore, he explains the only reason its on the market is the FDA violated the law. Here is the Board of Inquiry Report that revoked the petition for approval before the Rumsfeld stepped in: http://www.mpwhi.com/fda_petition1.doc
When the Ramazzini Study came out industry didn't know what to do because this is one of the most prestigious studies ever done peer reviewed by 7 world experts, and showing aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen which confirmed what FDA knew in the beginning. So they scrambled for something to try an rebut it and found an old AARP multifood form that only mentioned aspartame once in 56 questions. It was such a bogus study it would have been comical had not it been so criminal to mislead the public. Here is the report: NIH and NCI Halt the Spin on Bogus Aspartame Study: http://www.wnho.net/halt_the_spin_on_bogus_studies.htm This is one mentioned in your broadcast.
Here is the entire timeline from the prestigious Ecologist. Please note it starts off with: "Once upon a time there was a biochemical warfare weapon": http://www.mpwhi.com/ecologist_september_2005.pdf
Please keep broadcasting to save the people of Hawaii. We can get it banned if the people know the real story. Ask any victims to show up tomorrow at 8:00 AM in room 329 for testimony.
Consider its been on the market for 25 years. The reactions are so deadly and some of them immediate that once it was marketed there were three Congressional hearings. At that time Monsanto owned it and people like Senator Orrin Hatch were paid to stop anything from happening in Congress like a bill getting out of committee that would have put a moratorium on aspartame and had NIH do independent studies on what they were seeing in the population at the time which were seizures, drug interactions, what it does to the fetus, behavioral problems in children, etc.
Today there is a medical text with over 1000 pages of horrors, neurodegenerative diseases, how it can precipitate diabetes, how it interacts with drugs, birth defects, tumors, etc., Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com by H. J. Roberts, M.D. who testified before Congress, a diabetic specialist. Another, Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., http://www.russellblaylockmd.com His CD lecture, "The Truth About Aspartame", http://www.atavistik.com goes into the Ramazzini Study in detail, and the absurd rebuttal. Even the European Food Safety Authority tried to rebut it by saying the rats had respiratory disease knowing fully that is the dying process. When they were exposed, one member confessed that they were pressured by industry to hijack science. This is what the desperate aspartame manufacturers do, pay off - threaten and pressure, because they know aspartame is poison. Dr. Soffritti in Italy did another study after the original Ramazzini so they couldn't say the used a lot of aspartame. The study released in 2007 showed that aspartame even in a small amount causes cancer and if a pregnant woman uses it and the baby survives it can grow up and have cancer: http://www.laleva.org/eng/2007/04/aspartame_fda_spins_news_on_second_cancer_study.html
Mission Possible International is a global, non-profit volunteer force warning the world off aspartame with operations in 38 nations. We have now reached critical mass. In fact, on 2/6/08 the Atlanta Journal Constitution published an article titled: "Coke Buys 40% of boutique tea company". It stated: "The deal is important to Coke as sales of its flagship brands Coke Classic and Diet Coke soften in North America." The flagship Coke Titanic has hit the iceberg. I live in the home of Coca Cola and was interviewed by Atlanta Magazine last summer: http://www.mpwhi.com/tenacious_b.htm You will notice the journalist, an aspartame victim himself, asked Coke if they would like to answer me. They said they would let scientific peer reviewed research answer for them. So let's do that. Here is Dr. Ralph Walton's research on scientific peer reviewed studies and funding: http://www.dorway.com/peerrev.html Notice 92% of independent scientific peer reviewed studies show the problems. In the last 24 months about 14 more studies have shown aspartame toxicity while the FDA ignores them all. Coke couldn't have much to say because the protest of the National Soft Drink Assn (now American Beverage) is listed in the congressional record. Notice what they say about adulteration, and this is against the law: http://www.mpwhi.com/open_letter_dick_adamson.htm
Essence Center in North Carolina takes aspartame addiction cases. Aspartame Detox Centers have been set up for the sick and dying. How much more proof is needed. Here is what it's doing to our children: http://www.mpwhi.com/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm
I hope you will keep on broadcasting and warning the people of Hawaii until we can get this poison off the market. We thank the courageous legislators who introduced this bill to ban aspartame and save the people of Hawaii. If the manufacturers try and use their propaganda here its rebutted with medical references: http://www.dorway.com/offasprt.html
