Subject: Once More EFSA whitewashes Aspartame
Mr. Jeffrey Moon,
European Food Safety Authority
I have a question that really needs answered. How can aspartame be considered safe when independent scientific peer reviewed research consistently shows it is deadly? Has EFSA decided to ignore all damning research and only accept studies funded by the aspartame industry? Example: EFSA uses the Ajinomoto-funded Burdock "study" by industry flacks with conflict of interest and disregards enormous contrary scientific research.
To assist EFSA understand the coverup methods of industry, researcher Mark Gold scrupulously detailed their scientific abuse in aspartame seizure studies: http://www.holisticmed.com/aspartame/abuse/seizures.html and scientific abuse and possible fraud in Monsanto aspartame research: http://www.holisticmed.com/aspartame/abuse
Scientific Abuse in migraine/headache research: http://www.holisticmed.com/aspartame/abuse/migraine.html
There is abundant evidence of scientific abuse in aspartame Parkinson's studies, methanol toxicity, etc. For a government agency to be unbiased, it must eschew conflict of interest and only consider independent scientific peer reviewed research by qualified experts worldwide. These uniformly show aspartame is deadly. EFSA's modus operandi is to ignore such real science. Shame!
It was Parliament who requested a new review because they saw voluminous research showing aspartame is unsafe such as the Denmark Study on 60,000 women showing aspartame jumps preterm births up to 78%, and three studies by Dr. Morando Soffritti, Ramazzini Institute showing aspartame is a "Multipotential carcinogen" causing lung and liver cancer as well as leukemia and mammary cancer. Click http://www.greenmedinfo.com/toxic-ingredient/aspartame herewith to behold several additional damning studies. More are listed on our site, http://www.mpwhi.com, under "Peer Reviewed Research" at the top of the page.
Another paper lists even more research showing diet soda destroys kidney function, causes heart attacks & strokes. http://www.laleva.org/eng/2013/01/parliament_is_right_independent_aspartame_studies_prove_its_not_safe_-print.html
Egyptian research revealed the effects of memory destruction and oxidative stress in the brains of mice, http://www.mpwhi.com/chronic_exposure_to_aspartame_results_in_stress_in_brains_of_rats.htm Gender Dimorphism in Aspartame-Induced Impairment Of Spatial Cognition And Insulin Sensitivity; July 13, 2012
http://www.mpwhi.com/peer_reviewed_research.htm presents a study showing aspartame raises fasting blood sugar to the study showing aspartame causes severe depression.
A Harvard Study proved aspartame can cause non-Hodgkin lymphona, multiple myeloma and leukemia. http://www.mpwhi.com/consumption_of_artificial_sweetener_and_lymphoma.htm confirming Dr. Soffritti's work. Another study linked aspartame to diabetes, as has been known for 30 years. Endocrinologist Dr. H. J. Roberts said aspartame not only precipitates diabetes but aggravates and simulates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, converting to methanol which destroys the optic nerve and causes convulsions. It even interacts with insulin. These are recent studies!
You realize I could continue with scientific peer reviewed research on aspartame showing over and over and over and over that it is a killer. So if you remove all the conflict of interest and industry bribed "research", what is left defines an addictive, excitoneurotoxic, genetically engineered, carcinogenic drug and adjuvant. You are well aware of the Trocho Study which showed aspartame embalms living tissue and damages DNA.
Dr. Woodrow Monte authored: "While Science Sleeps" . Here is the last chapter: http://www.whilesciencesleeps.com/While%20Science%20Sleeps%20-%20Chapter%2012%20(ref).pdf This absolutely shows FDA knew aspartame causes birth defects before it was approved, and conspired with the manufacturer to seal the studies and never allow the public to know. It produced epidemic autism! In the U.S. one in 50 school children is autistic. http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2013/03/1_in_50_us_schoolchildren_has.html#incart_flyout_news
Even Dr. Herman Koeter who headed EFSA's committee confessed they were pressured by industry to hijack science: http://www.mpwhi.com/pressured_to_hijack_science.htm
Just one of these studies could ban aspartame but there are so many its overwhelming! EFSA uses rigged industry research to rebut/ignore honest legitimate studies. If 100 unbiased upright researchers study aspartame and prove it is unsafe will EFSA ignore or rebut them all, as it has done in the past? EFSA's record gives the answer.
So my original question: Why does EFSA approve aspartame when nearly all independent peer reviewed studies show its deadly? When I say nearly all independent studies consider Dr. Ralph Walton's research for 60 Minutes. http://www.dorway.com/peerrev.html He found 92% of all independent studies showed aspartame was not safe. However, he also said if you eliminate 6 studies that the FDA had something to do with because of the controversy and one industry summary 100% found it unsafe. Consider when the FDA Board of Inquiry revoked the petition for approval they said it was because of the brain tumor issue and the fact aspartame could not be proven safe. FDA had originally tried to have G. D. Searle indicted for fraud because they got caught trying to show it was safe when it wasn't. To this day we have put up with industry studies trying to show safety when, in fact, they show scientific abuse. You cannot take a chemical poison and have it show safety. Even FDA toxicologist, Dr. Jacqueline Verrett said in 1987 aspartame still had not been proven safe and this was 6 years after it was approved. http://www.wnho.net/j_verrett_testimony.pdf
In fact, the Senior FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress aspartame violated the Delaney Amendment because of the brain tumors and brain cancer. Delaney Amendment forbids adding anything to food and drugs you know causes cancer. He also said the FDA should not have been able to set an allowable daily dose, and if the FDA violated its own laws who was left to protect the public? Because he constantly spoke out about aspartame he was shipped to the EPA! You also know aspartame was approved in England through a business deal between G. D. Searle and Dr. Paul Turner of the agency there. No studies were done in the UK.
Without an answer EFSA admits it certainly does not protect Europeans because it has an inbred conflict of interest and loyalty to the manufacturers/marketers of aspartame, so to hell with the population of Europe! Let them die.
I know Jeff, you may not be on this committee anymore but you know where to forward this for that answer. I do have some names with EFSA. Be sure to read this: http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_what_parliament_needs_to_know.htm Parliament has!
