This is written in response to the article, "Poison [formaldehyde] found in kids' clothes from China," which may be found at: http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/4170006a6005.html
Of interest is the fact that while formaldehyde in clothes is of great concern, regulatory agencies refuse to even comment on the damning Trocho Study which shows that the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol in aspartame embalms living tissue and damages DNA. When you damage DNA you can destroy humanity. Here is the scientifically peer reviewed Trocho Study: http://www.wnho.net/formaldehyde_from_aspartame.pdf Is it possible that this study is so damning that regulatory agencies refuse to even mention the name for fear it will further spread the word that consumers using aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful/E-951/Canderel, etc.) can be pre-embalmed?
Pre-embalming is on page 675 in the medical text: Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com by H. J. Roberts, M.D.
Below is the Formaldehyde Olympics written some years ago after the Atlanta Olympics:
I so appreciate the statement from the NutraSweet web page:
"Formaldehyde has been implicated as a possible carcinogen when inhaled, but this hasn't been shown to be the case when its taken by mouth."
Barbara Mullarkey says NutraSweet's excuse is there's never been a study. Can't you see it advertised: "Needed: applicants for double blind medical study, to drink formaldehyde to determine its carcinogenicity.
Whether you drink alcohol or inject it; you'll get just as drunk.Whether you drink formaldehyde, inject or breath it, you'll get just as dead. By consuming low doses for years, constantly and continuously you just take longer to die, and you get to enjoy more misery: seizures, blindness, mock MS, migraines, perhaps diabetes, etc, but you'll finally be just as dead as if you drank a pint or so to begin with. It sure makes undertaker's work easier, less embalming, as one observed: "bodies come in with high contents of formaldehyde."
It's a fine idea to test formaldehyde as a libation, and I've got the solution. (pun) Since the executives at Monsanto/NutraSweet are unconvinced as to the toxicity of embalming fluid as a drink, let's test it ... on THEM! Let's set up a study with Monsanto execs chug-a-lugging various concentrations for six months. Say, 5 shots a day, about the consumption by some DietCoke/Pepsi/Equal/Slimfast/Aspartame addicts. So we'll scientifically calibrate how much/long it takes to kill, blind or paralyze you. The matter will be settled.
To get the ball rolling on this ground-breaking [really!] experiment I pledge a 55 gallon drum of formaldehyde. I'll also donate a $50 casket spray for the gold medalist in the competition. We could call it: THE NUTRAPOISON OLYMPICS. It's a little late, but we can ask the Olympic Committee to kick in for the coffins. And we can invite the IAT, TheInternational Association of Terrorists, to the Games, advising them that bombs will be unnecessary because the whole thing will be a killer. Only problem, 4 years from now the winners won't be able to defend their titles, but can be honored by a moment of silence.
In fact, we could expand these Games to include any other poisons which haven't been drink-tested: Rattlesnake venom, Arsenic, Hydrogen Cyanide, Plutonium, Essence of Black Widow, Nightshade, etc.
P.S. The Merck Manual says under formaldehyde: "This substance has been listed as a carcinogen by the EPA", and also says ingestion of formaldehyde causes death.
