This is in response to the article entitled, "EFSA’s Toxicological Assessment Of Aspartame: Was It Even-Handedly Trying To Identify Possible Unreliable Positives And Unreliable Negatives?", which may be HERE
This is an outstanding paper on the original studies of aspartame by Dr. Erik Millstone who is a scientist in England who has been researching aspartame since the beginning, and exposing it. He dissects the original studies. It makes me think of the testimony of Jana Marie who wrote about her experience of the cover-up. She is a para-legal and her father a physician. She understood the studies and wrote about the lab results from the tested rats and other animals. She said: "The results were outrageous. This stuff killed everything it touched." She had been hired to send copies of the original studies to France and then shred them.
Aspartame was never proven safe and Dr. Millstone discusses some of the political duplicity. Dr. Ralph Walton did the research for 60 Minutes on a survey of aspartame studies having to do with funding. 92% of independent studies showed the problems and if you eliminated 6 the FDA had something to do with and one pro-industry summary 100% showed the problems. http://lightenyourtoxicload.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Dr-Walton-survey-of-aspartame-studies.pdf Dr. Walton has done two studies on aspartame one of which had to be stopped when the administrator of the institution who took part in the study got a retinal detachment,and lost his vision in one eye, another had conjunctival bleeding and others complained of being poisoned. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0006322393902518 Monsanto had refused to supply the aspartame obviously knowing they couldn't control the study. His other study is on aspartame and autism.
This is an extensive 22 page article. It discusses the incredible Ramazzini Studies by Dr. Morando Soffritti showing aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen. Even Harvard did a study confirming these same cancers. Over and over studies that are independent and unbiased have shown the alarming problems like the Trocho Study by Dr. M. Alemany showing the formaldehyde embalms living tissue and damages DNA. Aspartame studies have shown everything from strokes and myocardial infarctions to raising fasting blood sugar and the depletion of neural transmitters. Neurological symptoms, including learning and memory processes, may be related to the high or toxic concentrations of the sweetener [aspartame] metabolites,- states a 2006 study in Pharmacological Research. More independent studies: https://www.holisticmed.com/aspartame/recent.html they never stop and as long as they are independent and unbiased its very obvious aspartame is a deadly chemical poison. As Dr. Walton's paper points out only industry controlled and financed studies defending their toxin ever said it was safe. Read Dr. Woodrow Monte's text, "While science Sleeps: a Sweetener Kills" http://www.whilesciencesleeps.com He discusses aspartame and MS, cancer and birth defects. He goes into so much detail on methanol.
So heres the point: 40 years of independent studies have shown how harmful and dangerous aspartame is. It is the epitome of an extremely toxic and carcinogenic drug masquerading as an additive. In the words of Dr. James Bowen "the public has been mass poisoned". He showed in his paper how aspartame violates the federal genocide law: https://rense.com/general/asp.htm
In "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" by the late world expert Dr. H. J. Roberts, he says: "The National Soft Drink Association initially objected to incorporating aspartame in carbonated beverages. It referred to this chemical as "inherently unstable" in the May 7 1985 Congressional Record. Moreover, it protested that the safety of aspartame had not been conclusively demonstrated because of "inadequate and unreliable" studies." After this swig of truth they turned around and lobbied for this addictive, excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic drug, adjuvant (immune stimulator) and teratogen.
Dr. Roberts in his medical text, page 769 and 770, said Senator William Proxmire charged the then FDA Commissioner with "misfeasance in office by allowing a potentially brain damaging sweetener to be manufactured and sold even before a hearing into its dangers is held." He also said, "While the general use of aspartame can bring a financial killing to the manufacturer, it may also kill the brain cells of countless children," Indeed in this last bombshell study showing aspartame depletes neurotransmitters in the brain are these words: "This study shows, aspartame may be contributing to the downfall of human civilization by altering the brains of human beings, turning them into cognitively impaired, chemically-altered organisms incapable of rational behavior." https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-12-17-bombshell-study-shows-aspartame-depletes-neurotransmitters-in-the-brain-5g-pesticides.html
The FDA is allowing Big Pharma to add aspartame to drugs and due to damage to the mitochondria or power of the cell they interact. They are even allowing it in the very drugs used to treat the problems aspartame cause. As an example, aspartame triggers ADD so children are prescribes Ritalin. The generic has aspartame in it. How in bed is the FDA with the aspartame industry? In Fortune Business Insights, 6/19/2019 it says: "Aspartame Market to Witness Remarkable Growth On Account of Authorized Permission from the Food and Drug Administration." The Fatal Drugs Allowed folks have failed to answer my question - "What have you done now?"
The power of industry is strong. Today even class actions are being dismissed before ever being heard: https://rense.com/general96/cases-against-coke-pepsi-and-dr-pepper-snapple-for-deceitful-advertising.php
Here are 22 pages of facts that were desperately needed to show the world the complete picture. Unfortunately the words of Jonathan Swift have been fulfilled: "Falsehood flies and the truth comes limping after; so that when men come to be undeceived it is too late: the jest is over and the tale has had its effect."
