Dear Ms. McIntyre: "food / aliment (HC/SC)" email@example.com
I received your email but I answered it in the form of an article before you sent it to me. Here it is: https://www.opednews.com/articles/Health-Canada-s-Step-Backw-by-Stephen-Fox-Adrian-Bebb-Gmo-And-Monsanto-Critic_Aspartame-Carcinogen_Brain-Tumors-Caused-By-Ajinomoto-Aspartame_California-Carcinogen-Identification-Commission-180325-606.html
l This is very same form letter you sent to Stephen Fox, Mission Possible New Mexico. It's obvious industry writes your material.
You people at Health Canada don't even think of the millions the world over suffering from this chemical poison. After almost 40 years of use and congressional hearings because of the symptoms and diseases triggered or precipitated by aspartame it has been controversial since the day it was marketed. Even the FDA themselves list 92 symptoms from aspartame from four types of seizures to coma and death. It includes going blind from the methanol. http://www.mpwhi.com/92_aspartame_symptoms.pdf
Since aspartame was marketed through the political chicanery of Don Rumsfeld as previously discussed and not science, and there have been thousands of complaints since day one, at least the prudent thing for an agency to do is warn. The last thing an agency should do is remove the outright notice of aspartame being in a product. A lot of people don't read small print.
The duty of manufacturers, producers and the agencies that approved aspartame, to warn of all risks, either known or reasonably foreseeable, is set forth in many laws and rulings here in the US. Canada no doubt has similar laws. Some examples:
McEewen v Ortho Pharmaceutical Corp (1974) - the continuing duty of a manufacturer to keep abreast of scientific developments.
The aspartame industry has never done this. Almost 100% of "independent" scientific peer reviewed research has proven everything from obesity and dementia to cancer and raising fasting blood sugar. http://www.lightenyourtoxicload.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Dr-Walton-survey-of-aspartame-studies.pdf Health Canada has never warned and uses industry propaganda.
In Tampa Drug Co. v. Waite (1958) - the duty to warn of newly-discovered risks through labeling changes and timely methods for communicating such information to consumers and the medical community.
Ferebee v. Chevron Chemical Company (1984) - "Mere compliance with federal or state regulatory labeling requirements does not preclude a jury from finding that additional warnings should have been given by manufacturers".
The nature of the duty to warn with a degree of intensity for reasonable persons has been emphasized by courts. Since this issue is germane to aspartame product reactions, there are several related rulings. I'm sure if I researched I would find the same laws in Canada.
Since aspartame has been proven time and time again to cause disability and death it is no time to make the name "aspartame" less visible to the public. In fact, there should be a warning that it causes cancer and brain tumors just for starters. In Spruill v Boyle-Midway, Inc. (1962) the Court stated:
"To be of such character the warning must embody two characteristics: first, it must be in such form that it could reasonably be expected to catch the attention of the reasonably prudent man in the circumstances of its use; secondly, the content of the warning must be of such a nature as to be comprehensible to the average user and to convey a fair indication of the nature and extent of the danger to the mind of a reasonably prudent person."
Now Health Canada wants to make the name aspartame less visible! Until it can be banned anything with aspartame should be up front and clearly labeled to warn everyone who may want to use the product that it contains this toxin. Otherwise the consumer could die from it. Here are articles from aspartame experts explaining, as an example, that it causes sudden cardiac death: http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_and_sudden_death.htm
What if a consumer is pregnant? She may have no idea aspartame causes birth defects and mental retardation. In original studies by G. D. Searle who first marketed it, aspartame triggered neural tube defects, spina bifida and cleft palate for starters. Autism has, with no explanation, increased 2500%. From "While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills" by Dr. Woodrow Monte, is the last chapter on aspartame and autism. http://www.rense.com/general96/asparautism.html The teratology studies were so bad you will notice in the article that the manufacturer made a deal with the FDA to seal them so the public would not know. It took me 8 years to find the studies. So rather than a pregnancy warning we see a cover-up by the FDA in the US.
Let's make a little more personal. Ms. McIntyre are you aware of what neural tube defects are? They are birth defects of the brain, spine, or spinal cord. They happen in the first month of pregnancy, often before a woman even knows she is pregnant. The two most common neural tube defects are spina bifida and anencephaly.
Let's make them a little more personal. I've been taking the cases of the sick and dying on aspartame for 28 years. Here is one on neural tube defects. Consider the anguish of the mother:
From: C. B.
Date: Mon, 27 Apr 2015
"Hello Dr Martini,
"I spoke to you earlier today inference to my sonís birth defect. He was born in 1991 and passed away in 2001. Prior to his conception, I was dieting and using aspartame religiously and throughout all trimesters of my pregnancy. My son was born with a neural tube defect. There was no awareness of this until his birth.
"Throughout his short life, he suffered from numerous medical complications, surgeries, doctorsí appointments and countless hospital admissions. He had intractable seizures and was prescribed numerous medications in an attempt to decrease the number of seizures. For the first few years of his life, aspartame was also a regular part of his diet as I was not aware of the dangers at this time. It was not until I was able to associate aspartame with my headaches that I ceased using it and giving it to my son. Through my own research, I realized how dangers this product is and became an advocate of warning people against using it.
The pain that was caused by this poison continues to be almost unbearable as I realize how the quality of my sons life and my life was taken away. The heartache and grief continues to linger. If only I knew. This was my only child and I loved him very much! But after watching him suffer almost daily, I decided not to have any more children afraid they may suffer the same fate. In a sense, Aspartame altered my life and what could have been my family.
"Thank you for the contribution you have made in bringing awareness to this dangerous poison. As a result, others will not have to suffer the same experience and heartache as me and my son."
Are there any studies prior to Health Canada approving this poison that were actually done in Canada? In this article is a 30 year old letter from the US Army showing in 18 to 24 months in Canada there were over 500 cases of birth defects positively identified as from NutraSweet. https://www.opednews.com/articles/Impending-Epidemiological-by-Dr-Betty-Martini-Ajinomoto_Aspartame-Carcinogen_Aspartame-Causing-Birth-Defects_Aspartame-Class-Action-Suits-180306-947.html Health Canada did nothing about it. Imagine how many there are now in Canada because nothing was done?
So many wonder where this epidemic of Autism came from. MIT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said by 2025 one out of two babies born will be autistic. It's obviously very easy to answer an email with a form letter with information from industry. But Health Canada hasn't protected the babies that ended up with autism because Health Canada is too busy protecting industry instead. I've written and provided information to Health Canada for years. Because we have alerted the world for over a quarter of a century victims have been alerted and stopped buying the toxin. So now the manufacturers want it unlabeled so they can continue to sell it. Health Canada is playing right into the hands of the manufacturers.
Notice that Cheryl Bridges started using aspartame for dieting purposes. Today six class actions have been filed, 3 in New York and 3 in California for deceptive advertising, marketing aspartame as a diet product when it has been shown through scientific peer reviewed research to cause obesity. It makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight.
The medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" by world expert H. J. Roberts, M.D. is 1000 pages of symptoms and diseases triggered or precipitated by aspartame. "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills", another medical text by Russell Blaylock, M.D. goes into detail about the brain tumors. The poison breaks down to diketopiperazine, a brain tumor agent that caused brain tumors in original studies.
Obviously after all these years everything is a matter of record, and there are volumes of information on the diseases it precipitates. If you want the answers you have to be willing to listen to the facts.
Educate yourself a little further on aspartame and Parkinson's Disease. Obviously you know Michael Fox from Canada, a former Diet Pepsi spokesman who asked how a 30 year old man could get an old man's disease, Parkinson's!
Aspartame knows no age. It damages the mitochondria. Perhaps you should read about it. https://books.google.com/books?isbn=1439145709 - Karlis Ullis - 2012 - Health & Fitness . Damage to mitochondrial DNA accelerates the aging process of all parts of the body,
Since aspartame damages the mitochondria or powerhouse of the cell,it is the reason it interacts with drugs and vaccines. I've many calls from hospices wondering why 25 year olds are admitted with Alzheimer's Disease.
Here is a recent article on aspartame and Parkinson's Disease. https://www.opednews.com/articles/Treating-Parkinson-s-Sympt-by-Dr-Betty-Martini-Ajinomoto_Aspartame-Carcinogen_Aspartame-Causing-Birth-Defects_Aspartame-Poisoning-180206-118.html
Health Canada should take some time to read scientific peer reviewed research that is independent and unbiased instead of being a parrot of the aspartame industry. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2213231714000640 Read Dr. Russell Blaylock's words in this article when a couple of studies were published having to do with aspartame and cancer and diabetes. http://www.wnho.net/new_aspartame_studies.htm Here are 13 mainstream articles on aspartame in 24 months proving aspartame toxicity. They don't stop and Health Canada ignores them.
We are asking for action, not another form letter. The Hippocratic Oath says "first do no harm". If Health Canada doesn't alert the public, and instead try to hide the identification of aspartame without proper labeling they become the problem.
