Press and public are invited to hear the oral submission on aspartame on 11/21/07. It will begin at 9:40 AM and last about an hour. Abby Cormack, Dr. Woodrow Monte ( http://www.dorway.com/monte84.html ) and the Ministry of Health are speakers.
Contact Steffan Browning with NZ Soil & Health for location of meeting room. 921 7254655
Many cases like Abby Cormack's may have initiated this meeting. Identical cases including neurological abound. Medical texts document the correlation of aspartame disease to neurodegeneration, diabetes, obesity, tumors, birth defects and even psychiatric problems. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) documented 92 symptoms including 4 types of seizures, stroke, sexual dysfunction, blindness and death. http://www.mpwhi.com/fda_92_symptoms_on_aspartame.htm The coverup of these symptoms and psychiatric and neurodegenerative disease tie the hands of physicians who cannot accurately treat what they are unaware of.
Sadly the New Zealand Food Safety Authority is on the side of aspartame manufacturers as they showed by refusing to admit me to their consumer forum on aspartame in July. I stood by the door with the official records exposing aspartame toxicity they refused to see or place on the record. Even a private meeting was denied. Proving their loyalty to industry NZFSA later excluded Dr. Ralph Walton who did the research for 60 Minutes on aspartame studies and funding. http://www.dorway.com/peerrev.html His own study had to be stopped because of the horrific symptoms the subjects endured from the use of this toxin. Dr. Walton is one of the experts who reviewed Abby Cormack's case. NZFSA also refused to hear Dr. Woodrow Monte, in Wellington who wrote the peer reviewed journal article on Aspartame, Methanol and the Public Health.
The NZFSA made it plain they want no evidence of aspartame toxicity. While they're concerned about clothing from China containing formaldehyde they ignore the Trocho Study showing the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol in aspartame embalms living tissue and damages DNA. http://www.mpwhi.com/formaldehyde_from_aspartame.pdf This study should be duplicated in NZ by independent researchers without aspartame manufacturer interference.
Most consumers in New Zealand don't realize 951 is aspartame so avoiding it is difficult. US FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress there is no safe dose. The Delaney Amendment makes it illegal to allow any residues of cancer causing chemicals in foods. In his concluding testimony Dr. Gross asked, "Given the cancer causing potential of aspartame how would the FDA justify its position that it views a certain amount of aspartame as constituting an allowable daily intake or 'safe' level of it? Is that position in effect not equivalent to setting a 'tolerance' for this food additive and thus a violation of that law? And if the FDA itself elects to violate the law, who is left to protect the health of the public?" Congressional Record SID 835:131 (8/1/85).
The political chicanery of Don Rumsfeld to get aspartame on the market when the FDA had revoked the petition for approval is exposed in the documentary, "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World"., http://www.soundandfury.tv
We ask the public and press to attend this meeting and support the eventual ban of this addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug. It interacts with all drugs and vaccines.
