FDA is responsible for so many deadly drugs being marketed and after all they receive half or more of their funds from industry. Besides the reasons below, if FDA receives more power it will be almost impossible to get aspartame off the market. Furthermore, when I was speaking to some one last year from the FDA, and said people are sick and dying all over the world from aspartame, I was told, "Well, we do need to depopulate". The answer is "you first".
Remember the raids from the FDA over dietary supplements that we are trying to save. My husband was talking to someone recently who had grown herbs like his father before him. He bought some ginseng and was fined $75,000. He was actually being followed.
The Forestry sprayed an herbalist grower's land and the area surrounding this because they knew herbs were being grown that were used in the treatment of cancer. One member of the Forestry who did this, and was dying, told the man, "I'm sorry we had to do this. The FDA does not want cancer cured. We were ordered to do this."
The late FDA toxicologist, Dr. Jacqueline Verrett, in her book "Eating may be Hazardous to your Health" (used copies available) testified against her own FDA. She said a new agency more consumer health oriented should be set up. She testified against her own FDA in Congress in 1987 having to do with aspartame, and said it still hadn't been proven safe. In fact, that's the reason they were having the Congressional hearings in the first place. It was in admitted in Congress that the FDA were receiving so many complaints on aspartame that they were referring them to the AID's Hotline! Physicians, aspartame victims and scientists spoke out against this deadly addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug. Keep in mind that Dr. Verrett was testifying that aspartame had never been proven safe in 1987 and yet it was legally approved in 1981. It was approved through the political chicanery of Don Rumsfeld.
Notice this paragraph below: "In a misguided attempt to safeguard our food supply, S.510 grants extraordinary powers to the FDA, which already has a long history of abuse and misuse of its authority over both foods and supplements. This bill would give the FDA the authority to impose extensive, burdensome requirements on small- and medium-sized farms, ranches, and orchards such that many of them would certainly be driven out of business. Far from making our food supply safer, this bill would make it less safe. You must help us stop it!"
From my comments above you see that even with the power FDA has now what harm they inflict against farmers just trying to make a living. A citizens petition for ban of aspartame has been on their books since 2002 even though the law gives them only 180 days for them to reply. An imminent health hazard petition was amended to this citizens petition in 2007, The FDA by law only has a week or ten days to answer this. They have refused. Should they be granted more power to inflict more harm to the public by their loyalty to the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
Remember FDA is nothing but Big Pharma's Washington Branch Office. Dr. Verrett had the right idea! Read on from the National Health Federation below my signature.

TAKE ACTION NOW TO STOP S.510
CALL YOUR SENATORS TODAY!
November 16, 2010
As you have heard from several other sources, the Beast is back. Congress has begun its dreaded Lame Duck session where the discredited Congressional Leadership intends to pass every anti-freedom measure they can while they still hang by their filthy claws on to power.
Among the many disturbing acts of violence Congress plans to inflict upon Americans is the so-called Food Safety Modernization Act (S.510), which is scheduled for a cloture vote on Wednesday. You have already taken steps to oppose S.510 before, but now it is really time to take action and stop this monstrosity from being passed.
In a misguided attempt to safeguard our food supply, S.510 grants extraordinary powers to the FDA, which already has a long history of abuse and misuse of its authority over both foods and supplements. This bill would give the FDA the authority to impose extensive, burdensome requirements on small- and medium-sized farms, ranches, and orchards such that many of them would certainly be driven out of business. Far from making our food supply safer, this bill would make it less safe. You must help us stop it!
So please call your Senators today to urge them to oppose S.510!
You can find your two Senators contact information at: http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm
In addition, even if they are not your own Senators, contact the following Senators to complain about their anti-freedom support of S.510: Orrin Hatch (UT), Tom Harkin (IA), Mike Enzi (WY), Lamar Alexander (TN), Judd Gregg (NH), John Isakson (GA), and Richard Burr (NC). These are Senators who should know better, but are supporting this bill in a misguided belief that it will actually accomplish something.
Tell your Senators and these others that:
Please take action right now! Your calls could make the difference!
