Subject: New Citizens Petition to Allow Aspartame in School Milk Products: FDA's Constant Violation of Law
Aspartame must have a PKU warning by law. You don't upgrade standards by violating the law. The attack on the brains of our children continues. Many schools have removed regular pop and now sell only diet pop because of obesity when, in fact, its aspartame and MSG causing the obesity: http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_makes_you_fatter.htm Canada has banned aspartame in grammar and middle schools. http://www.mpwhi.com/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm
Note the FDA has refused for over 6 years to answer my Citizens Petition for ban, even though the law requires it be answered in 180 days. http://www.wnho.net/citizens_aspartame_petition.htm They have also refused to answer an imminent health hazard amendment which must be answered in a week or ten days. http://www.wnho.net/amendment_to_citizens_petition.htm This was over a year ago. But they are ready to answer a Citizens Petition to violate the law.
It would seem to me that Congress should make this an issue! The Fatal Drugs Allowed folks simply go too far. March is the last month to answer another atrocity, allowing aspartame in yogurt unlabeled. http://www.mpwhi.com/milkweed_yogurt_story_feb_2009.pdf and http://www.mpwhi.com/yogurt_fda_hides_the_poison.htm
In the congressional record in l985 FDA toxicologist Dr. Adrian Gross spoke out against the FDA violating another law:
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)
Twenty four years later aspartame is still on the market. Dr. M. Soffritti in the Ramazzini Study confirmed aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen. Then he did another study showing it only takes a small amount of aspartame to cause cancer and it can be passed on to the offspring of a pregnant woman if the baby survives. Aspartame triggers birth defects and mental retardation, and there is no warning on the label. http://www.mpwhi.com/louis_elsas_testifying_to_congress.htm Because the FDA violated the law consider the thousands who have died from aspartame cancer including babies born with brain tumors. Aspartame breaks down to Diketopiperazine, a brain tumor agent. http://www.mpwhi.com/letter_to_cynthia_oshita.htm
The continual attacks against our children is horrifying. We've heard about the sickness and death from Gardasil, and now these posts:
"My niece went to the doc for her physical to enter high school. She was given the vaccine
Without parental consent too. I was sooooooooooooo angry.
and "Jane M wrote: My grandkids are scheduled for Monday for this - my daughter is giving them the day off school - they only sent the notice home today - minimal time for her to ring her friends and warn them - the whole school should take the day off. So thanks for the instant ammo - you're wonderful!"
Here is more information on this atrocity: http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=68454
Pass on as a warning to parents everywhere and the media. Send this note to your congressman. Enough is enough! Who will have mercy on our children but it isn't the FDA. Aspartame is also in many drugs used to treat the problem it causes. For instance, aspartame is in Maxalt for headache, and headache is #1 on the FDA list of 92 documented symptoms from aspartame including death. A study showed that Maxalt with aspartame increased headaches but the manufacturer, Merck, continues to use it.

Subject: New Citizens Petition to Allow Aspartame in School Milk Products
NMPF & IDFA request FDA to update its standards of identity for milk IDFA and National Milk have filed a citizen's petition with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requesting a modification of the standards for milk and other dairy products to allow the use of non-nutritive sweeteners.
NMPF and IDFA is asking the FDA to update its standards of identity for milk to allow these sugar substitutes to be used because many schools have a requirement that what they purchase must fall under the legal definition of milk.
If you're using these caloric substitutes, you cant call it milk any more under present guidelines, Galen explained, even though the substitutes are safe and effective in making low calorie milk beverages available to kids in schools.
