Excellent article. Generics especially are adding aspartame. They put it in Raglan and Zofran generics and it gave me gastroparesis. The doctor said he checked all gastrointestinal generics and aspartame was in them all. Dr. H. J. Roberts who wrote the medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" always said aspartame triggers gastrointestinal problems and then they put it in the drugs to treat it. I had no idea it was in all the generics.
It interacts with pain medication and I stopped breathing three times. Take Maxalt for headache. It has aspartame in it and headache is #1 on the FDA list of 92 symptoms from 4 types of seizures to coma and death. We notified the company and they refused to remove aspartame. Then they did a study showing headaches get worse with Maxalt and they still refused to remove it.
I filed the first petition for ban in 2002. The FDA called me in 2009 and said it wasn't going to happen. I said, "I lecture all over the world on aspartame and people are sick and dying everywhere." He said to me, "So what, we have to depopulate". I wrote that for a book Dr. Leonard Coldwell wrote called "The Only Answer To The Only Cancer Patient Cure". You'll also read what the FDA did when they found the herbalist who grew the herbs for a cancer cure I used.
Aspartame is an addictive, excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered drug, adjuvant and teratogen that interacts with drugs and vaccines because of damage to the mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell. I just wrote an imminent health hazard petition just the other day. Already there are 6 class actions, three in New York and three in California for deceptive advertising, calling soda "diet" when its caused an epidemic of obesity.
I'm glad to know about the False Claim Act.
