Subject: The FDA Fable - Continuing to lie on the aspartame cancer issue!!!
The news release that aspartame doesn't cause cancer would be laughable if it wasn't so sad that FDA simply will not tell the truth.
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 what happened in between for the FDA to say aspartame is not a carcinogen? Perhaps someone sprinkled fairy dust and changed this deadly excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug into something entirely different.
From the FDA Task Force Report:
I so appreciate the statement from the NutraSweet web page:
Whether you drink alcohol or inject it; you'll get just as drunk. Whether you drink formaldehyde, inject or breathe it, you'll get just as dead. By consuming low doses for years, constantly and continuously you just take longer to die, and you get to enjoy more misery: seizures, blindness, MS, migraines, perhaps diabetes, etc, but you'll finally be just as dead as if you drank a pint or so to begin with. It sure makes undertaker's work easier, less embalming, as one observed: "bodies come in with high contents of formaldehyde."
It's a fine idea to test formaldehyde as a libation, and I've got the solution. (pun) Since the executives at Monsanto/NutraSweet are unconvinced as to the toxicity of embalming fluid as a drink, let's test it ... on THEM! Let's set up a study with Monsanto execs chug-a-lugging various concentrations for six months. Say, 5 shots a day, about the consumption by some DietCoke/Pepsi/Equal/Slimfast/Aspartame addicts. So we'll scientifically calibrate how much/long it takes to kill, blind or paralyze you. The matter will be settled.
To get the ball rolling on this groundbreaking [really!] experiment I pledge a 55 gallon drum of formaldehyde. I'll also donate a $50 casket spray for the gold medalist in the competition. We could call it: THE NUTRAPOISON OLYMPICS. It's a little late, but we can ask the Olympic Committee to kick in for the coffins. And we can invite the IAT, The International Association of Terrorists, to the Games, advising them that bombs will be unnecessary because the whole thing will be a killer. Only problem, 4 years from now the winners won't be able to defend their titles, but can be honored by a moment of silence.
In fact, we could expand these Games to include any other poisons which haven't been drink-tested: Rattlesnake venom, Arsenic, Hydrogen Cyanide, Plutonium, Essence of Black Widow, Nightshade, etc.
Watch for Formaldehyde Olympics, part II.
P.S. The Merck Manual says under formaldehyde: "This substance has been listed as a carcinogen by the EPA."
And so years later, the FDA is still lying, just like the commissioner did to the New Mexico Legislators: http://www.thenhf.com/fda_87.htm
Interestingly, the FDA attempted to have Searle indicted for fraud under Title 18, Section 1001, stumbling and lying. Unfortunately, both US Prosecutors hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired. Now the FDA is just as guilty under Title 18, Section 1001. I bet they don't bring this poison home to their families.
The manufacturers and the FDA, front groups, etc. continue to lie daily but its all a matter of public record: http://www.wnho.net/whopper
Please don't cover this type of news when its obviously false and can be proven as such. Here's a history: http://www.wnho.net/history_of_aspartame.htm
The FDA must be stopped from continuing to get away with lying, and such obvious deceit. At least publish my letter or the government records. Let the public have the facts, not fairy tales.
This new study by Ramazzini is the death knell for aspartame which at one time was listed with the pentagon in an inventory of prospective biochemical warfare weapons submitted to Congress: http://www.wnho.net/the_ecologist_aspartame_report.htm This dreadful poison even triggers birth defects and mental retardation. Today 1 in 150 is born autistic. The term ADD and ADHD were not even used before the early l980's when aspartame was approved. It's an abortifacient and killing babies.
Tell the public the truth!
