Is Aspartame Safe? - Many Scientists Don’t Think So

Is aspartame safe for diabetics? Should you avoid aspartame? Is it possible to get aspartame poisoning? These are just a few of the questions surrounding the neurotoxin aspartame. Aspartame is in many foods, sodas, and now, most chewing gums. It is sold as a (safe) dietary sugar substitute.

Aspartame took 8 years to receive FDA approval. Many doctors and researchers agree that aspartame should have never been allowed into the food supply. You can thank politics and greed for the misery that aspartame causes.

Aspartame was eventually approved by the FDA even though in early testing it was proved to be extremely toxic> Searle’s researcher did an early test (1967) on seven monkeys. Aspartame was fed to them while mixed in milk. One monkey died and 5 had grand mal epileptic seizures. Of course this study was omitted when they applied for aspartame approval.

In 1976 the FDA’s own task force submitted a 500 page report on Searle’s testing of aspartame. They found faulty and fraudulent testing of aspartame, with Searle appearing to purposely mislead the FDA.

The FDA plans to bring charges, but the Attorney General is recruited by Searle and eventually takes a cushy job there. The replacement attorney general stalls proceedings so the statute of limitations runs out and he is also hire by Searle. Once Searle hires Donald Rumsfield as their CEO he pulls the political strings overriding years of scientists and doctors working to keep aspartame out of the food chain.

UPI reports that more than 10 officials involved in the approval of aspartame, get jobs in the private sector with companies involved in the aspartame industry.
