Parliament was absolutely right in questioning the safety of aspartame for pregnant women since unbiased, scientific peer reviewed studies almost 100 per cent across the board continue to show aspartame to be deadly and unsafe. It is unfortunate the power and influence of industry continues to rule the agencies that are suppose to be there for protection. In reality they betray the public trust, and their protection is for industry. You will notice ANSES has no proof aspartame is safe, they are just making a statement to side with the manufacturers. In all research as mentioned below aspartame has been found to be a teratogen. The Denmark study on 60,000 women proved the pre-term birth issue, going along with the rise we see today. Their game is just a play on words and what they can get the public to believe. What does ANSES provide to prove aspartame safe? Nothing! Checkout conflict of interest.
Now that more of the original studies have been released we see that the FDA knew all along that aspartame causes birth defects big time. They made an agreement with the manufacturer to seal and hid the studies per Dr. Woodrow Monte's new book, "While Science Sleeps" When aspartame was approved in the US because of the political chancery of Donald Rumsfeld the FDA told Dr. John Olney that no baby or child would ever get aspartame. Famous last words! Try and find a pediatric vitamin in the grocery store that doesn't have aspartame and it remains in pediatric prescription drugs. Look how strenuously Dr. Olney warned the FDA about birth defects. http://www.wnho.net/dr_olney1.doc The FDA agreed with Dr. Olney and revoked the petition for approval. Don Rumsfeld, then CEO of G. D. Searle went into action. Searle filed suit against the FDA. Meanwhile President Reagan as a favor to Rumsfeld had the FDA Commissioner about to sign the revoked petition into law fired at 3:00 AM. He then wrote an executive order making the FDA powerless to do anything about aspartame until he could get Arthur Hull Hayes, a friend of Rumsfeld, appointed as FDA Commissioner to overrule the Board of Inquiry. Aspartame kept being rubberstamped around the world, and never proven safe. Almost 100 per cent of independent peer review studies identify aspartame as a chemical poison.
Walk into a restaurant and many times there is a sign that warns pregnant women not to use alcohol. Aspartame has a methyl ester which immediately becomes wood alcohol, a deadly metabolic poison that converts into formaldehyde and formic acid. Unlike the methanol in fruit and vegetables which also have the classic antidote ethanol, it is free and unbound. It embalms living tissue and damages DNA. (Trocho Study)
The methanol issue was not even included. The manufacturers of aspartame know there is no way of getting around this issue, so they conveniently changed their name from aspartame to AminoSweet. This is deceptive since its the methanol that makes the toxin sweet, not the excitoneurotoxic amino acids. http://www.mpwhi.com/fda_violates_data_quality_act.htm
Based on this information you would expect to find an epidemic in birth defects, and that's exactly what we have. Note this chart showing the rise of autism since aspartame was approved. http://thetruthaboutstuff.com/charts/Autism%20USA.pdf
Food Standards, in England, as an example, was created to keep industry apart so FS could make independent decisions. It didn't happen. Just follow the money and conflict of interests. EFSA is a prime example. Imagine new babies bursting to be born bathed in an excitoneurotoxic, genetically engineered and carcinogenic poison. Aspartame breaks down to diketopiperazine, a brain tumor agent. Babies are born with brain tumors of the variety seen in original G. D. Searle studies. Who is there to protect the babies? Will Parliament step forward?
It seems everybody else went home.
