This is in response to the article "New FDA Labels May Protect Drug Makers" which may be found at: http://delawareonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080824/HEALTH/308240007/1113
This is outrageous and absolutely the White House protecting industry. This way you wouldn't know what the drug causes to sue and cause a lawsuit. For instance, Maryanne Lamar really gave it to the Splenda manufacturer when her husband had a grand mal seizure after using it. Finally they admitted that Splenda will cause seizures and headaches. Today we know it will cause much more. So manufacturer know exactly what their product causes.
In the case aspartame Searle did studies in 6 countries to see how much damage it would do in humans as in their studies in animals. They used people in poor villages where they wouldn't be missed if they died. Like animal studies, aspartame triggered brain tumors and seizures and other problems. It hardened the synovial fluids, the reason for the horrific joint pains, destroyed the brain and central nervous system, as we know today it does. They knew a quarter of a century ago. They never published the studies.
If you had to put a warning label on aspartame it would have to be a very large label as the FDA's own report includes 92 symptoms including death. They refused to put a warning label for birth defects, miscarriages and mental retardation. Now when children are born with autism, ADD, ADHD, and other horrors many times they don't know it was the aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/E951/Canderel, etc.) the mother used in pregnancy. The only suitable warning label for aspartame since there are so many symptoms, diseases, cancer, etc., is Genocide: Keep out of reach of humans. In fact, someone didn't know why she was so sick and thought she was dying, so she went back to her hometown to buy a burial plot. In the meantime, her daughter who was studying medicine happened to see a bottle of aspartame in the lab with a skull and crossbones. It saved her mother's life. She got off aspartame and got well.
They want the FDA to have pre-emption to prevent us getting aspartame banned in other states and countries. In the Bill of Rights, #9 and #10, you will see that you cannot take away the rights of the people and the rights of the States.
This has to be stopped.
