This is a wonderful article about the efforts by our efforts (myself and Dr. Betty Martini, Founder, Mission Possible International) regarding warning African heads of state and health ministers as well as the unsuspecting consumers in African Nations about aspartame and Ajinomoto, and very comprehensive in general, and I thank the author, Kaanii Powell Cleaver.
The one thing slightly untoward in this article is that one paragraph heading about going belly up in California in the context of the efforts through Proposition 65 which created the Carcinogen Identification Committee. In fact, we are quite optimistic about California labeling aspartame, the only real bright spot in a sometimes grim world.
My UN Resolution from 2006 seems to have some new life and some new interest, although now and over the next four years, it would be deemed far too "potentially anti-corporate" and the US State Department would fight it zealously whereas in 2006 they just dumped on it sufficiently that India had to back down and not introduce it, even though they wanted to do so, and so did the 53 other nations willing to cosponsor it.
Title of the Article is Are Monsanto and the Ajinomoto Company Poisoning Africa? Aspartame and MSG Dangers Revealed.
It is quite refreshing and even re-inspiring to me to receive excellent and thorough coverage outside of the alternative media with whom I regularly work, in one that I really respect, The Inquisitr. We will be writing at length to those with the moral high ground in Africa, like Doctors Without Borders, the source of the photo for this OEN article, and we will continue to write to Health Ministers, politicians and legislators in Africa, as well as individual journalists and activists.
For the photo, it was a choice between an Oxfam image of a mass grave for children and this one, a surviving child, who could be treated and would certainly do better in recovering without food laced with aspartame and MSG, part of Ajinomoto's plan for Africa, which has already started in Ghana as a big Public Relations ploy.
[ I particularly appreciate this appearing in the Inquisitr, one of the few sites to even begin to describe the intentional purging in the NY primary in Dawn Papple's articles, in contrast to the big boys at the Times, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, Newsday, AM New York, and a few other dailies with circulation over one million per day, who couldn't be bothered. The New York Daily News did carry Shawn King's and Laura Bult's articles on this, but that was it for mainstream media. Mother Jones wrote about that and so did the Gothamist and the Villager. The corporate-driven media was so busy doing what the Boards of Directors, Wall Street, and the Democratic National Committee insisted that they do: to ignore the deeply flawed New York primary in toto! These alternative media sites have guts much or most of the time, but the Inquisitr seems to have the courage to publish the truth all of the time, much like OpEdNews, really....]
Please do read the article at the Inquisitr. I will only here quote one section particularly nice to see again after 10+ years. The whole resolution you can read here:
"Can the United Nations protect us from aspartame and MSG danger?
In 2006, Fox authored a resolution to create a new undersecretary general for nutrition at the United Nations. The new position, had it been approved, would serve to protect consumers worldwide from known neurotoxins, suspected carcinogens, and other harmful food additives. Following is a portion of the resolution, as published by Red Ice Creations:
"The General Assembly must recognize that there must be henceforth a cessation of all manufacturing of and addition to foods of carcinogens, neurotoxins, mercurial fungicides used in the international transport of coffee beans, bovine growth hormones, pesticides, herbicides, alcoholic beverages, tobacco, cottonseed oil, steroids, chemicals fed to chickens to accelerate the frequency of their egg laying, bleach used to whiten flour and sugar, "anti-caking agents" like sodium silicoaluminate added to flour, chemicals added to color and preserve meat, artificial sweeteners, hundreds of manufactured food products containing aspartame (also called NutraSweet), methyl bromide, calcium propionate, malathion, parathion, dieldrin, food coloring, sodium erythorbate, BHA, BHT, TBHQ, sulfides and sulfates added to dried fruits, and foods irradiated with radioactive strontium and cesium, just to name a few."- Advertisement -
