Subject: FDA Chief Von Eschenbach - Going Once! Going Twice?
Dr. Von Eschenbach, Is it FDA policy to lie when the truth will do better?
Affirmative! FDA lied to the New Mexico legislature about aspartame with full knowledge of its toxicity.
I filed a formal petition for the banning of aspartame five years ago. The law requires an answer within 180 days. The response I received was a letter stating FDA has more important things to do. A global plague - Aspartame disease - rampages and is ignored, disabling millions. Read Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic by H. J. Roberts, M.D. http://www.sunsentpress.com
Indeed FDA has more important things to do, like approving Vioxx for a body count of 55,000.
Since my deeply documented petition, aspartame's diseases have skyrocketed: birth defects, retardation, autism, brain cancer, seizures, sexual dysfunction (count the Viagra ads), lupus, MS and death. A 1038 page medical text gives hundreds of case histories. Even FDA once listed of 92 reactions including death from over 10,000 consumer complaints, more protests than ever before received on a "food additive". Our sleeping watchdog's response was to kill the report 10 years ago, and deny it ever existed.
Could any of this be connected with the parade of FDA officials who got fat jobs in the aspartame biz? Is the ocean wet?
The horror reports didn't stop when FDA closed the complaint window; I've received tens of thousands about this addictive, neurotoxic carcinogen. To FDA's Mitchell Cheeseman I reviewed their crimes in the approval process together with the damning protest of the National Soft Drink Assn against aspartame approval published in the Congressional Record. I called his attention to the adulteration issue NSDA brought up, then I reminded him that it's against the law to market an adulterated product or ship it interstate.
Cheeseman cavalierly announced: "We can get around the adulteration with section 409". FDA doesn't care how lethal aspartame is, only how to get around the law. He couldn't respond to the statement of FDA's own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, who told Congress that aspartame, violates the Delaney Amendment, which forbids anything in food that produces cancer in animals.
Break the law, ignore the law, get around the law; it's all the same to the Fatal Drugs Allowed gang!
Aspartame is sold as an additive tho FDA knows it's a drug that interacts with all drugs and vaccines: I told Cheeseman: "If anybody knows how deadly aspartame is, it's FDA, since they revoked the petition for approval in l980." He lied and said there wasn't any petition. I emailed him a copy and he changed his tune.
When the 3-year Ramazzini Study on 1,800 rats confirmed FDA's original records by showing aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen, FDA lied once more. http://www.wnho.net/cancer_study_obligates_recall.htm
When FDA was interviewed by the New York Times it all came out, they spoke from the heart and whined that "The economics would hurt the manufacturers if they banned it." Kill the consumers but don't hurt Big Daddy's checkbook. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/12/business/yourmoney/12sweet.html?ex=1297400400&en=f5f573accc334534&ei=5088&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss
Dr. Von Eschenbach, what does it take for FDA to tell the truth? http://www.thenhf.com/fda_89.htm
So now, Dr. Von Eschenbach, you're under investigation for lying to Congress. Be proud that your tenure has endured beyond the 2 months of your predecessor, dog doctor Lester Crawford. A veterinarian, over a sleeping watchdog, it fits!
Why, you've been our FDA Commissioner 3 months already! All's well that Ends! http://www.thenhf.com/fda_87.htm
