Once upon a time FDA attempted to protect the public from aspartame. When G. D. Searle submitted studies on aspartame and FDA found they committed fraud they asked for their indictment under Title 18, Section 1001. Unfortunately, both U.S. Prosecutors, Sam Skinner and William Conlon hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired. Still the FDA Board of Inquiry revoked the petition for approval. Don Rumsfeld had been hired as CEO of Searle to get aspartame approved and clean up the mess.
Rumsfeld said he would call in his markers so aspartame could be marketed. Rumsfeld was on President Reagan's transition team. The day after Reagan took office he appointed Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes as FDA Commissioner, so the Board of Inquiry revoked petition could be overturned, and it was. Reagan knowing it would take 30 days to get Hayes to FDA wrote an Executive Order making FDA powerless to do anything about aspartame until Hayes could get there. http://www.soundandfury.tv/pages/rumsfeld.html At 3:00 AM someone on the transition team called Dr. Jere Goyan, FDA Commissioner and fired him because he would have signed the revoked petition into law.
What to do with the studies that showed aspartame could not be proven safe! One informant says she was hired to shred the studies, and that everything aspartame touched it killed. In the Bressler Report the most damning studies were put under FDA seal and they refused to release them. It took 8 years to get a copy of them and then they were added back to the Bressler Report and hand-carried to Jerome Bressler by Lane Shore, Mission Possible Chicago http://www.rense.com/general88/hid.htm They even removed the name of the scientist/toxicologist, Dr. Thomas F. X. Collins from the document. They knew if his name was available someone could find him and then get the facts. Lane Shore did find him but his wife said he has refused to talk to anyone.
It was Dr. John Olney, world renowned researcher, with Attorney James Turner, who tried to prevent approval of aspartame because he knew birth defects would be a given and combined with MSG, another excitotoxin, would destroy the brains of our children. Here is his report to the Board of Inquiry http://www.wnho.net/dr_olney1.doc
Was Dr. Olney's prophecy three decades ago fulfilled? Read for yourself:
"The European Environmental Association has projected that with the rise of autism caused by toxic foods like Aspartame, MSG, Fluoride, and environmental degradation, by 2013 no one will be born in the Western World that does not to some degree have autism. Our board of AAEM, American Academy of Environmental Medicine and Dr. William Rae, director of the Dallas Environmental Clinic agreed in open discussion at the October 2010 annual meeting." Bill Deagle, M.D.
This is taken from the article, "Aspartame Causes Birth Defects and Mental Retardation and violates Title 18, of the Domestic Genocide Code" : http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_causes_birth_defects.htm
In the attachment which is a letter from Dr. Thomas R.X. Collins of the FDA, Whole Animal Toxicology Branch,( this same scientist, whose name FDA has tried to hide), there is conclusion on page 5. "In both rabbit studies, aspartame appeared to cause birth defects at the high level (s g/kg) "
On page 2 note about major and minor anomalies consisting in part of: bi-clefted lip,cleft palate, fused mandible, short maxillary bones, fusion and misalignment of caudal vertebrae, reduced ossification of thoracic and caudal vertebrae and phalanges, hydrocephalus, missing ribs and ectrodactyly.
Pass this on to Goldie Hawn who has a great concern for children with cleft palate, and the organization Smile Train, changing the world one smile at a time.
Read Dr. Louis Elsas testimony to Congress, pediatric professor, genetics, about aspartame and birth defects back in 1985, listed in our Report For Schools: http://www.mpwhi.com/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm
Aspartame (AminoSweet/Equal/E951/NutraSweet/Naturtaste/Canderel/Benevia/Neotame) is an addictive, excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered drug that interacts with drugs and vaccines due to damage to the mitochondria. It is also an adjuvant like Squalene in vaccine.
Recently there was a study in Denmark that showed aspartame jumps premature birth up to 78%: http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_jumps_premature_births.htm
Just how much more evidence does FDA need to remove aspartame from the marketplace because its a deadly chemical poison. A study in Norway several years ago showed aspartame damages the brain, especially in the area of learning. Dr. John Olney got so disgusted about the coverup in Searle's studies he demanded they be done in his office so he could oversee them. Again, aspartame caused brain damage. Olney thought the FDA would never approve it with these studies but didn't realize Searle did not give them these studies. Get this poison out of schools, and off the planet!
A bill giving the FDA even more power, S510, has passed and needs to be repealed. FDA has served above the law for years and defends industry. They have ignored a Citizen's Petition for ban for over 8 years when the law only allows 180 days. They have ignored a 2007 amendment based on an imminent health hazard that is suppose to be answered in a week or ten days. Dr. Ken Stoller has also petitioned the FDA to ban aspartame and this has been ignored as well. Even twelve toxicologists have asked FDA to ban aspartame.
