Dear Editors: The writer should not mix aspartame in with his rumours trying to stumble the public:
As to MS and aspartame read this post: http://www.mpwhi.com/new_report_at_neurology_conference.htm
From the congressional record on aspartame and cancer:
On August 1, l985 the FDA's own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress at least one of Searle's studies "has established beyond ANY REASONABLE DOUBT that aspartame is capable of inducing brain tumors in experimental animals and that this predisposition of it is of extremely high significance. ... In view of these indications that the cancer causing potential of aspartame is a matter that had been established WAY BEYOND ANY REASONABLE DOUBT, one can ask: What is the reason for the apparent refusal by the FDA to invoke for this food additive the so-called Delaney Amendment to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act?"
The Delaney Amendment makes it illegal to allow any residues of cancer causing chemicals in foods. In his concluding testimony 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 SID835:131 (August 1, l985)

I'm the founder of Mission Possible International, a global volunteer force in the US and 40 nations warning the world off aspartame. I've been taking the cases of the sick and dying for 18 years. A retraction needs to be published. There is a 1000 page medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com by world expert H. J. Roberts, M.D.
There are aspartame detox clinics and even a movie on the global plague, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, http://www.soundandfury.tv
Somebody didn't do their homework. Don't let people be stumbled to continue to use it. Write a retraction.
