Catastrophe! More FDA Lies about Advantame/Aspartame as "Harmless"!

By       (Page 1 of 3 pages)   4 comments

This is Dr. Russell Blaylock (Neurosurgeon) discussing the neurodegenerative harm done by Excitoxins, especially Aspartame

(Dr. Adrian Gross of the FDA in 1987 Decried Aspartame A Time Bomb Waiting to G Off, Corporate Studies as "Worthless" Yet FDA in 2017 tells the completely corporate-protecting opposite story,especially about the concentrated Advantame)

Correspondence Between Betty Martini of Mission Possible International to Dr. Joseph Thomas at the FDA

To: "Thomas, Joseph"
From: "Dr. Betty Martini,D.Hum."
Subject: Advantame

Dear Dr. Thomas,

Thank you for getting back to me. It's because of reading some of what you have on your web page on Advantame that I have so many questions. Here is what Ajinomoto wrote: "Advantame is also FEMA GRAS approved (FEMA #: 4716) as an artificial flavor. The flavors of Dairy drinks, Frozen Desserts, Beverages, and Chewing Gum can be enhanced with low levels of Advantame." So I want to know exactly when Advantame is not labeled.

This is just another aspartame product. Since the dangers of aspartame have now reached critical mass its the intention of the manufacturers to keep selling it somehow. Some worries are things like this enhancement of dairy drinks they mention. Aspartame is required by law to have a PKU warning for phenylketonurics who can't metabolize phenylalanine and Advantame is half aspartame. Yet your web site says there will be no PKU warning. It doesn't matter how much is used, especially since as Dr. James Bowen has said, "aspartame causes Phenylketonuria itself." Also its cumulative. Read the Trocho Study This shows the formaldehyde embalms living tissue and damages DNA. You ignore all the "independent" peer reviewed studies. This study alone should remove aspartame from the market. As brought out in Dr. Woodrow Monte's book, "While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills", the tissues are turned to plastic. On this web site you can read the last chapter on aspartame and autism, and the deal between G. D. Searle and FDA to seal the teratology studies so the public wouldn't find out aspartame caused neural tube defects, spina bifida and cleft palate for starters. How could the FDA commit such a demonic act? Even Dr. John Olney who tried to prevent approval wrote in his report to the FDA Board of Inquiry that birth defects are a given. The FDA agreed with Dr. Olney and told him even though Rumsfeld got it marketed they would see to it that no child ever used it. Famous last words! Since the FDA finally released 4 of those original studies to Dr. Monte after I added what FDA sealed back to the Bressler Report the FDA cannot say aspartame doesn't cause birth defects. So where is the pregnancy warning on Advantame?

Dr. Richard Wurtman at MIT wrote: "Possible Neurologic Effects of Aspartame, a widely used food additive": He said in the abstract: The artificial sweetener aspartame (L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanyl-methyl ester), is consumed, primarily in beverages, by a very large number of Americans, causing significant elevations in plasma and, probably, brain phenylalanine levels. Anecdotal reports suggest that some people suffer neurologic or behavioral reactions in association with aspartame consumption. Since phenylalanine can be neurotoxic and can affect the synthesis of inhibitory monoamine neurotransmitters, the phenylalanine in aspartame could conceiveably mediate neurologic effects. If mice are given aspartame in doses that elevate plasma phenylalanine levels more than those of tyrosine (which probably occurs after any aspartame dose in humans), the frequency of seizures following the administration of an epileptogenic drug, pentylenetetrazole, is enhanced. This effect is simulated by equimolar phenylalanine and blocked by concurrent administration of valine, which blocks phenylalanine's entry into the brain. Aspartame also potentiates the induction of seizures by inhaled fluorothyl or by electroconvulsive shock. Perhaps regulations concerning the sale of food additives should be modified to require the reporting of adverse reactions and the continuing conduct of mandated safety research."

After Dr. Wurtman had received 80 cases of seizures from aspartame he said it was enough to have it removed from the market. The phenylalanine always has affected all consumers, not just phenylketonurics. Removing the PKU warning is inexcusable. Dr. Wurtman's medical text is "Dietary Phenylalanine and Brain Function" - Richard J. Wurtman and Eva Ritter-Walker

Industry knows about the warnings so The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) filed a petition with FDA to allow aspartame in milk and 17 other dairy products unlabeled. This is against the law but instead of telling Big Dairy they wouldn't permit it FDA states its a way to get them to drink their milk. (Dr. David Hattan). In other words the children are warned not to use anything low fat or with aspartame so they won't be harmed by the poison and the FDA sacrifices them for the profit of Big Dairy. I remember when this came out I was in Chicago visiting Jerome Bressler. I was sitting on his bed in a nursing home showing him the paperwork and he said, "Betty, the FDA can't allow this, it's absolutely against the law." I said, "Jerome, they sealed the two mouse studies and the cover letter, in your Bressler Report so the public wouldn't know aspartame causes birth defects, one of the most hideous crimes in FDA history, why would you think they would change now?" He just hung his head and said, "no protection of the public". Even before he became bedridden he told people in the nursing home "don't drink diet pop, its poison"!

So now we have Ajinomoto saying Advantame can be used to flavor dairy drinks. Will it be labeled or used unlawfully like aspartame? First lets get this out of the way. Aspartame was never proven safe and you know it. ("Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World" - Here in this hour and a half documentary Attorney James Turner explains how aspartame was marketed because of the political chicanery of Don Rumsfeld.

FDA chief scientist Dr. Adrian Gross in the aspartame investigation as well as the FDA toxicologist, Jacqueline Verrett, testified against the FDA to the Senate. On 8/1/1985 Dr. Gross told the Senate aspartame was on the market illegally, that it violated the Delaney Amendment because it causes cancer, and the FDA should not even be able to set an ADI. His last words will never be forgotten "And if the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public?" In l987 Dr. Jacqueline Verrett, a toxicologist and member of the Bressler Task Force, testified before a US Senate hearing. She described the discrepancies found in the Searle tests of aspartame as 'serious departures from acceptable toxicological protocols.' "It is unthinkable," she said, 'that any reputable toxicologist giving a complete, objective evaluation of the data resulting from such a study could conclude anything other than that the study was uninterpretable and worthless and should be repeated.' "On the crucial question itself: 'It would appear that the safety of aspartame and its breakdown products has still not been satisfactorily determined, since many of the flaws cited in these three studies were also present in all of the other studies submitted by Searle."
