We already know that aspartame is an addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug causing a global epidemic: Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com H. J. Roberts, M.D.
An FDA toxicologist told Congress it causes cancer back in l985: http://www.wnho.net/the_fda_fable.htm
The Ramazzini Studies proved again aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen. Malignant neoplasms are now the #2 cause of death according to the 2004 CDC Report.
Now NutraSweet is going to be mixed with Acesulfame potassium for a new tabletop sweetener. Dr. Roberts wrote in his first book years ago about this:
"Acesulfame potassium (or acesulfame K) was approved for use by the FDA as a safe artificial sweetener in July 1988. It is a derivative of acetoacetic acid Unfortunately, several potential problems associated with the use of acesulfame have been raised. They are based largely on animal studies since testing on humans remains limited.
Some years ago Return to Eden in Atlanta removed Acesulfame Potassium (Sunnett) because I sent them information. Immediately I got a call from Dr. Abe McCall of the company who said, "We know aspartame causes brain tumors but Acesulfame Potassium only caused mammary tumors." I explained it was more than that but no thank you consumers don't want breast cancer. He later called and told me I didn't have permission to tell that story. Manufacturers don't seem to understand that disability and death are not acceptable costs of business.
Today consumers flock to sweeteners because of the epidemic of obesity. Aspartame and MSG have been proven to be the cause of this epidemic. http://www.dorway.com/walton2.txt An eight year epidemiological study by the University of Texas, Sharon Fowler, linked diet drinks to obesity. Even in the congressional record of May, l985, protest of National Soft Drink Assn, it was admitted that aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight. http://www.wnho.net/open_letter_dick_adamson.htm So what is happening is the consumer public is consuming a product that is triggering obesity to try and prevent it.
Just Like Sugar is a safe sweetener which can be gotten in any Whole Food Store or Wild Oats. It's also approved now in many nations like UK and Australia. Dr. Russell Blaylock (Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills) wrote in the Blaylock Report that "finally there is a safe sweetener" after asking for an analysis which showed it contains chicory, orange peel, Calcium and Vitamin C.
The public must read labels. The Senomyx substitute for MSG is now on the market. Ajinomoto has the marketing rights for our country. Nestle for Europe, where they have already introduced Senomyx in a line of Bouillon Cubes. This did not require approval and would be in artificial flavors. http://www.truthinlabeling.org Consumers should consider with the food supply being so poisoned that processed foods not be used. Other countries importing American products can now be using Senomyx without knowing it as well.
