Subject: Open Email to Federal Trade Commission: Your unconcerned Response
To Federal Trade:
Is your letter attached a joke? You never answered any of my questions and sent a form letter. You talk about not intervening in individual disputes. The petition sent was on behalf of Mission Possible World Health International. We operate globally to warn the public that aspartame is a deadly poison. The original complaint was by "US Right To Know" whose director, Gary Ruskin, said: "I BELIEVE THAT 'DIET' SODA WILL GO DOWN IN U.S. HISTORY AS ONE OF THE GREATEST CONSUMER FRAUDS EVER."
Here is a report in McClatchy newspapers http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/national/article39182577.html Your excuse for refusing to investigate was: "We considered a number of factors related to resource allocation and enforcement priorities, as well as the nature of any FTC Act violation and the type and severity of any consumer injury."
So you're saying you don't have the funds to investigate one of the greatest consumer frauds and what is most important. You claim you considered the severity of any consumer injury. The biggest consumer injury in the aspartame issue is death. A Mrs. Kovac in New York couldn't understand why she wasn't losing weight since she was using a "diet" product, aspartame. Finally she decided that she would use only aspartame products because they were "diet". She dropped dead from methanol poisoning which is the cause of many deaths from aspartame. Here are more injuries sent to you. http://www.mpwhi.com/ftc_refuses_to_enforce_law.htm
If the Federal Trade Commission doesn't have the funds to investigate and doesn't think death is important enough it should close its doors and allow an organization to take its place that considers consumer protection its first priority.
You say in your letter: "The FTC has been directed by Congress to act in the interest of all consumers to prevent fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices in the marketplace." So why aren't you doing it? If you can't afford to do your job what are you doing there? If the most important consumer deception is not good enough for you to do your job then you should be replaced with people who make consumer protection the first priority.
You've received notices from Mission Possible for years, yet you have done nothing to correct the matter. Over 3 decades ago Dr Richard Wurtman admitted that aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight. See congressional records on http://www/mpwhi.com Study after study after study show aspartame is responsible for obesity, it causes you to gain weight. All the work has been done for you. In the Trocho Study you see substantial toxicity in the adipose tissue, made up of mainly fat cells.
All you have done in your response is confirm that the Federal Trade Commission is supposed to be protecting the public! Where is the answer to my question, why you're not doing it. Do you have an alliance to the aspartame industry? Independent scientific peer reviewed studies on the subject show aspartame makes you gain weight. Obviously the main study is on the consumer public. From day to day articles come in from around the world on its dangers. Italy has now banned aspartame from restaurants: http://www.rense.com/general96/asparMSGban.html
