The FDA is a contumacious agency serving above the law, and lying to the public knowing full well aspartame is a chemical poison and never proven safe. Their own chief scientist during the aspartame investigation, Dr. Adrian Gross, testified against his own FDA on 8/1/85, Senate, stating that beyond a shadow of a doubt aspartame caused cancer and violated the Delaney Amendment. He ended by saying if the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public? So the FDA today ignores the fact that they themselves tried to have the company indicted for fraud and had evidence that aspartame triggered everything from cancer to seizures by industry's own studies. They actually revoked the petition for approval and the only reason its on the market because Don Rumsfeld now working for G. D. Searle to get aspartame on the market stated he would "call in his markers" and did.
FDA says they will do something if science becomes available, yet at the same time ignoring independent scientific peer reviewed research from recent studies proving everything to precipitating diabetes, dementia, strokes, metabolic syndrome, myocardial infarctions, obesity, premature births and cancer for starters. How do they get around the Trocho Study showing the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol embalms living tissue and damages DNA? To ask the question is to answer it - like all the other damning studies they ignore it.
With 30 years of independent damning studies and never ending complaints they approve Advantame, another aspartame product. It appears from their information on web that its unlabeled and has no PKU warning. This means they could add it to regular soft drinks and you wouldn't even know it. Who trusts Coke and Pepsi as they were the head of the National SoftDrink Assn (now American Beverage) who wrote a 33 page protest to the FDA about aspartame dangers, and then turned around and lobbied for the product. But here is the most heinous crime of the FDA - they sealed the teratology studies that showed such things as cleft palate, spina bifida and neural tube defects - horrible birth defects. I was asked to find them by Jerome Bressler who was the famous compliance officer who authored the Bressler Report having to do with the fraud such as excising brain tumors, putting the rats back in the study, and when they died resurrecting them on paper. After adding these records back to the Bressler Report:
and giving them to Bressler, I also gave them to Dr. Monte who finally got FDA to now release 4 more studies. He wrote the book "While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills" - www.whilesciencesleeps.com Read the last chapter free on aspartame and autism.
So consider the FDA got away with sealing the teratology studies and not putting a birth defect warning on aspartame allowing autism and other horrible birth defects to become epidemic throughout the world. Now being exposed they released 4 studies to Dr. Monte that they had all along.
Yet they approve Advantame, and it doesn't matter how much aspartame - its cumulative. They know it will cause birth defects. It's a heinous, genocidal crime. http://www.rense.com/general/asp.htm Notice it violates the Federal Genocide law.
It all makes me think of a book called "The Tainted Truth: The Manipulation of Fact in America" by Cynthia Crossen. The road to hell, she says, was paved with the flood of corporate research dollars that eagerly filled gaps left by slashed government research funding. In 1981, industry contributed $292 million to colleges and universities for research; by 1991 that figure had burgeoned to over $2.1 billion. The aspartame industry has its own front research organization called ILSI International Life Sciences Institute . Today FDA gets over half its funding from BigPharma and confesses they are broken and corrupt. They continue to allow aspartame to be added to drugs knowing it damages the mitochondria and interacts. Will we ever really know how many millions are dying from the interaction and sudden cardiac death triggered by this insidious poison.

The FDA answered my letter with more carcinogenic lies. They say "we believe that based on a fair evaluation of the available information, there is a reasonable certainty of no harm to the general population from the use of aspartame" .... In reality they made no evaluation at all, they ignored all scientific peer reviewed research for the past 30 years and act like the original fraud didn't exist. Yet everything is a matter of public record. FDA have said they know of no mechanism by which aspartame triggers diseases so when a world expert writes a medical text and gives the mechanisms and document what they have been asking for they ignore it. Their duplicity and deceit should be reason to remove anyone from the FDA who swindles the public from receiving the honest truth. Send it to your Congressmen and Senators and ask when is enough enough. Hoodwinking the public to believe a poison is a safe additive is murder by deception.

Dear Dr. Thomas:
I am in receipt of a letter signed by you dated 9/26/2017. Obviously, Dr. Musser couldn't and won't answer my letter, and it appears to be given to the aspartame industry to prepare a deceiving propagandistic response. Where the aspartame industry could use propaganda, it does whenever possible, but when it came to answering crucial and critical evidence, there was no response.
If you truly wrote this rubbish and it is your sole response representing the FDA, then you should hand in your resignation, because this is a serious imminent health hazard petition besides answering FDA's letter that was written 14 years after a demand for ban. The original response over a decade ago was not even sent to me because the aspartame industry knew I would answer it meticulously and in detail, and I only received it after I discovered that it was published by the National Law Review!
