Subject: FDA and supplements
This is in response to the artile entitled, "FDA Warns Companies Selling Drugs As Supplements For Alzheimer’s And Other Diseases," which may be found at: https://www.naturalproductsinsider.com/regulatory/fda-warns-companies-selling-drugs-supplements-alzheimer-s-and-other-diseases
Dear Dr. Gottlieb:
Obviously the FDA is so guilty in the aspartame issue you can't even answer my letters. I would suggest you clean up FDA's own violations before you point your finger at supplements. Aspartame is not an additive but a drug and that was admitted by an employee of G. D. Searle in the beginning. It damages the mitochondria and interacts with drugs and vaccines. It violently interacts with pain medication, so no wonder so many opioid deaths.
After I stopped breathing three times from generic drugs with aspartame I provided a hospital form to keep them from allowing more poisoning like in my case. http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_hospital_form.htm Further one of the FDA's chief investigators originally on aspartame was the late Dr. Adrian Gross who admitted to the Senate that aspartame was on the market illegally because it violates the Delaney clause since it caused brain tumors and brain cancer beyond a shadow of a doubt. He said FDA should not have been able to even set an allowable daily intake.
FDA has done some of the most despicable acts against the public. When companies wanted to use Stevia to get away from the poison aspartame FDA embargoed it. When the Stevita Company wrote books on Stevia explaining its sweetness the FDA came down and wrote in them and asked for a bonfire. They only backed away when the press was called to witness the event. Then Dr. Julian Whitaker reminded the FDA of the first amendment. However, when the soda companies asked about using it, FDA said it was quite alright. Anything for industry but nothing to protect the public. The raids even with guns was a time in history that shamed the fDA: Here is a list of some of the things FDA did: http://www.alexchiu.com/eternallife/raid.htm James Earl Long was the voice in the video, "Let Truth Be our Bias"! It showed a protest after the FDA with guns raided the office of the excellent holistic MD, Dr. Jonathan Wright. With signs raised they said things like, "Dr. Wright made me well, FDA go to hell".
You talk about Alzheimers and memory loss is so common with aspartame its #9 on the FDA list of 92 symptoms: http://www.mpwhi.com/92_aspartame_symptoms.pdf An informant said the National Soft Drink Assn, now American Beverage, did a ten year study showing Alzheimers, birth defects and blindness. When I had a conversation with someone from the organization I happen to meet she said, "you couldn't possibly have a copy of those studies"! Notice she didn't deny the studies were done. It's very easy to understand since so many people who were employed by Monsanto told me they were told not to use aspartame because it causes Alzheimers. Last time I checked two plus two equal four. So aspartame has caused these problems and the public looks to supplements to maintain health. It's in so many things unlabeled its killing people. Talking about FDA violations consider aspartame violates the Delaney clause admitted by the FDA, violates the adulteration law and even interstate commerce laws. By refusing to accept a petition to ban or answering letters you are showing the world FDA could care less about the people.
Notice the hospital form has a chapter on drug interaction from the 1000 page medical text I sent the FDA, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" by the late H. J. Roberts, M.D. Dr. Roberts coined the phrase "Aspartame Disease: because he said the symptoms are predictable and there is a pattern. Today its often called Rumsfeld's Plague as it has mass poisoned the people of the world. Meantime the FDA stands by and allows aspartame to be added to even the very drugs used to treat the symptoms and diseases triggered or precipitated by this chemical poison.
From the University Health News is this information:
Aspartame and cancer risk
"The debate about whether aspartame increases the risk of certain types of cancer continues, and the latest study to be published on the issue suggests it does. In late 2012, a group of researchers from Brigham and Womens Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston published a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showing that men and women who consume one or more daily servings of aspartame-sweetened diet soda had a 42% increased risk of leukemia. Furthermore, they found that men, but not women, also had a 31% higher risk of non-Hodgkin lymphomas and a 102% higher risk of multiple myeloma in comparison with men who did not consume diet soda. A set of previous studies in rats in 2006-2007 had also uncovered increased cancer risk, especially of leukemias and lymphomas, from long-term aspartame. The rats in those studies were consuming aspartame in doses equivalent to those which humans can (and do) easily ingest."
So here come the leukemia drugs and FDA thinks nothing of allowing aspartame that causes leukemia in the first place to be added to the product like in Idelalisib [a pressure sensitive solid form of an active pharmaceutical ingredient]
Priority 2014-07-30 Filing 2014-07-30 Publication 201 reported to transform partially into another polymorph, Form C. Idelalisib is a drug suitable for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. It d5) are added to make the ingredients more palatable. Suitable sweeteners are, for example, sorbitol, dextrose, sucrose, saccharin, aspartame,
Aspartame known to be a seizure triggering drug is being allowed to be added to anti-seizure medication, a crime against humanity: https://rense.com/general96/fda-allows-aspartame-to-be-added-to-anti-seizure-medication.php The complaints never stop: https://rense.com/general96/aspartame-and-msg-now-in-neurological-drugs.php
Aspartame is well known to trigger gastrointestinal disease. The patient goes to their physician and are given drugs to treat gastrointestinal disease and according to one physician has aspartame in all the generic drugs used to treat the problems aspartame caused in the first place. All the patient can expect is to get worse.
Dr. Gottlieb clean up the epidemics caused by aspartame that FDA has allowed all these years, even refusing to ban it with so many petitions to ban by physicians, researchers and other concerned consumers.
When it comes to healthful vitamins and herbs the most outrageous thing done by FDA was send the Forestry to the herb farm of Earl Rayburn. They found out he had my cancer formula and was growing the healthful herbs. His crime was he had 800 letters from terminally ill cancer victims who were sent home to die. 800 victims of cancer wrote with the formula they had been cured. One man from the Forestry told Earl, "I want to apologize to you for what we did. The FDA made us do it. Said they couldn't have cancer cured." If that wasn't bad enough Earl bought herbs from someplace else since his acres were destroyed. Here comes the FDA and confiscated the herbs and charges him a fine of $75,000. The FDA made him sign something that said he couldn't tell anyone and then expunged the record. The FDA is a piece of work, cow towing to Big Pharma and being their puppet, lacking the courage to protect the public. Earl is now dead but I promised him I would expose the FDA for this abominable act. It's detailed in the book, "The Only Cancer Patient Cure" by Dr. Leonard Coldwell.
A good deal of the public knows the FDA protects only Big Pharma. The only thing the public has left to stay alive is healthful vitamins and drugs. Clean up the FDA's own mess. The FDA has refused to ban aspartame allowing mass poisoning of the world. Countries I've visited all told me they did no studies but relied on the FDA's approval. In England it was approved through a business deal with a Paul Turner creating outrage by Parliament. Roger Williams, a member of Parliament tried to have it banned. He told the UK Parliament, House of Commons:
TOXIC PROPERTIES OF ASPARTAME
"That this House expresses deep concern over the numerous independent toxicological studies and thousands of subjective reports attesting to the toxic effects of the artificial sweetener aspartame on human health; notes that aspartame, once patented as a biochemical warfare agent, is the synthetically produced methyl ester of a dipeptide which is readily broken down in the gut to release methanol; further notes that in naturally occurring foodstuff methanol is either not released into the body or present together with natural defence mechanisms that mitigate its toxic effects; recognises that methanol is a well known poison and is further converted into formaldehyde, a class A carcinogen according to the World Health Organisation's International Agency for Research on Cancer; accepts that severe health concerns occur from the gradual accumulation of formaldehyde in the body which cannot be excreted and that further research has shown that long term low level exposure to formaldehyde induces leukaemia and nasopharyngeal cancer in humans; acknowledges that of the 166 studies conducted on aspartame's safety deemed relevant to humans, 92 per cent. of independently sponsored studies identified one or more problems with aspartame's safety whereas industry-sponsored studies found unanimously in favour of aspartame's safety; and urges the Government to abide by the precautionary principle and make use of Statutes 13 and 16 of the 1990 Food Safety Act to remove aspartame from the permitted list of additives on the UK market."
So why have you done nothing to rid the planet of this biochemical warfare weapon and want to attack the supplement industry? I'm still waiting for FDA to acknowledge my petition to ban aspartame which has enough studies since 2002 for you to answer. Even lately still coming in, one that shows aspartame destroys the gut, one that shows aspartame damages neurotransmitters, and even one the other day titled "Aspartame in Diet Drinks and Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy". They are never going to stop because they constantly show aspartame to be a killing machine just like Dr. Woodrow Monte discusses in "While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills". Here is another one that came in today: https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/14/health/diet-soda-women-stroke-heart-attack/index.html It's titled: "Drinking two or more diet beverages a day linked to high risk of stroke, heart attacks" Notice the usual thing that happens when an independent study comes in. Calorie Control Council, the aspartame industry's front group tries to get the public not to consider what it is showing as American Beverage, a trade group that pushes aspartame and tells the public it's safe. They use to be called the National Soft Drink Assn, and they are the ones who originally protested against aspartame in carbonated drinks. Read what they said: https://rense.com/general96/pepsi.htm It was added to the congressional record to show before they started lobbying for NutraSweet they knew the true facts and what this poison would trigger or percipitate. Notice what Dr. Ralph Sacco said. That it is another confirmatory study between artificially sweetened drinks and vascular risks. Another yellow flagg. When you keep doing studies on the same thing and getting the same result you know what is causing the problems. This has been going on for years. Then it is questioned what these artificial sweeteners are doing to the gut. There has just been a new study on that too, https://www.businessinsider.com/artificial-sweeteners-aspartame-and-sucralose-damage-gut-bacteria-e-coli-2018-10 How many studies have to be done before FDA does something about this plague.
Let's put this in prospective. If you have controversy for over 40 years, almost 100% of all independent peer reviewed studies showing everything from cancer to dementia, a FDA list of 92 horrible symptoms including death, aspartame detoxification centers from Atlanta to Chicago and California to Australia, aspartame medical texts, millions of articles on what it does to the body, damning congressional records from renowned physicians, most all the original investigators at the FDA who investigated aspartame saying its poison, and damning investigations being covered up like the one by CDC, you have a problem. If this were a supplement the FDA would be galloping away with its raid brigade.
The task force investigation showed how far the manufacturer went to deceive. FDA Toxicologist and Task Force member, Dr Adrian Gross stated (Wilson l985): "They (G.D. Searle) lied and they didn't submit the real nature of their observations because had they done that it is more likely that a great number of these studies would have been rejected simply for adequacy. What Searle did, they took great pains to camouflage these shortcomings of the study. As I say filter and just present to the FDA what they wished the FDA to know and they did other terrible things for instance animals would develop tumors while they were under study. Well they would remove these tumors from the animals."
An FDA Toxicologist explained why their experiments were invalidated: "It is highly unlikely the FDA Investigative teams found all of the problems with G. D. Searle's studies. G. D. Searle seemed so intent on covering up their misconduct, that it is quite likely that they were able to hide many of the problems from the FDA.
On Jan 10, l977 in a 33 page letter, FDA Chief Counsel Richard Merrill recommended to U.S. Attorney Sam Skinner that a grand jury investigate Searle for "apparent violations of the Federal, Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. 331 (e), and the False Reports to the Government Act, 18 U.S.C. 1001, for 'their willful and knowing failure to make reports to the Food and Drug Administration required by the Act, 21 U.S.C. 355 (i), and for concealing material facts and making false statements in reports of animal studies conducted to establish the safety of aspartame.'" The FDA called special attention to studies investigating the effect of NutraSweet on monkeys and hamsters.
The task force exposed such skullduggery that G. D. Searle filed suit to get it off the record so the public couldn't read it. Yes, we have the entire task force. The eight month investigation by UPI continued to expose the political chicanery: http://www.mpwhi.com/upi_1987_aspartame_report.pdf Then you have the congressional records: http://www.mpwhi.com/congressional_record1.pdf and http://www.mpwhi.com/congressional_record_1985.pdf There was also one in 1987 when toxicologist, Dr. Jacqueline Verrett testified. Here is her testimony: https://www.nal.usda.gov/exhibits/speccoll/items/show/3899 Read the CDC damning investigation: http://www.mpwhi.com/damning_cdc_investigation_on_aspartame.htm On the CDC site they have a summary that contradicts the investigation. If you want to hear it all from physicians and experts on aspartame simply see the documentary: "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toKyRlpmG7A
As you investigate even in other countries you see the power of industry. In one review in Britain it turned out there was no committee. One man made the decision aspartame was safe, obviously a flack, and they were turned over to OLAF, who investigates fraud. The Commission on Food became inactive and EFSA was set up. When the Ramazzini Studies were done showing aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen the head of the committee, Dr. Herman Koeter resigned saying they were pressured by industry to hijack science. I think that says it all but then EFSA was going to do another review. Mark Gold of the Aspartame Toxicity Center exposed the fact they plagiarized an industry review.
So the FDA has said for years - "show us some science and we will take another look". Over 30 years of facts of the horrors of aspartame and the FDA does nothing. Then they said "show us the mechanism by which aspartame causes these problems". So Dr. H. J. Roberts wrote the medical text, 1000 pages, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic", http://www/amazon.com and gives the mechanisms of the diseases and I send it to FDA. FDA Dr. Joseph Thomas writes he doesn't see the mechanisms and it lacked references. Not only were their constant references but 25 pages of bibliography. I actually had to type the mechanisms from the text and put them on line so I could show the FDA still lies. I notice there has not been a beep about the study Harvard did linking aspartame to cancer either, nor these recent serious studies.
I have yet to hear from FDA about our petition to ban aspartame or have FDA answer all the questions they don't want to discuss.
When you refuse to answer letters you are saying you are not interested in protecting the public, you know aspartame is a poison, and there is no way to answer and protect industry because we don't accept propaganda and lies. It is sickening that as FDA Commissioner you have ignored this epidemic and refuse to tell the facts to the public. I'm still waiting to hear from you.
