This government document is only January, 1986 through December 1990. The government certainly can't say they don't understand the toxicity of aspartame. This report has 167 citations and there are many, many more over the past few years. Consider the damning Trocho Study that shows the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol embalms living tissue and damages DNA. www.mpwhi.com/formaldehyde_from_aspartame.pdf Here is one from Liverpool: http://www.organicconsumers.org/toxic/msg010306.cfm New research on common food additives, including the controversial sweetener aspartame and food colorings, suggests they may interact to interfere with the development of the nervous system.
Also you have the prestigious Ramazzini Studies showing aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen. Dr. Morando Soffritti's second study showed not only does aspartame cause cancer but even in small amounts and if the mother uses aspartame during pregnancy, and the baby survives because of birth defects, cancer can be passed on through the offspring. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/12/business/yourmoney/12sweet.html?ex=1297400400&en=f5f573accc334534&ei=5088&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss
Here are 13 mainstream studies on aspartame: http://www.mpwhi.com/13_aspartame_research_studies.htm
Dr. Ralph Walton in l996 submitted research to 60 Minutes that showed 92 percent of all independent, unbiased scientific peer reviewed studies shows the problems that aspartame causes. http://www.dorway.com/peerrev.html Sharon Fowler of the University of Texas did an epidemiological study, 7 years of data, and linked obesity to diet drinks, 2005. Dr. Lynn Steffen likewise is responsible for a study at the University of Minnesota that showed metabolic syndrome linked to diet soda, 'Feb 2008. It just continues on and on. What does it take to get the FDA to ban this deadly chemical poison? How did it all happen? Listen and see James Turner, Atty, explain how Donald Rumsfeld called in his "markers" and got aspartame on the market through political chicanery: http://www.soundandfury.tv/pages/rumsfeld2.html The disability and death continues with FDA's refusal to take responsibility giving their loyalty instead to Big Pharma.
