THE SORDID HISTORY OF ASPARTAME
The American public has been duped for a long time. A Health & Nutrition Newsletter from from Tufts University stated that, "Since 1998, 26 studies have been done with aspartame by the FDA and have reached the same conclusion every time: aspartame is safe for the general public, including pregnant women, and children. And the only people who are affected by aspartame are the ones with a rare genetic disease known as Phenylketonuria." An editorial from the prestigious American Council on Science & Health wants people to believe that, "Aspartame is one of the most thoroughly tested substances in the U.S. food supply. It has been tested by a great deal of reliable sources, such as the Food and Drug Administration, the FAO / WHO, European Community, and the American Medical Association. They have all agreed after thorough studies, that aspartame is a safe product except in the rare amount of cases with people with PKU." Is ASPARTAME really that safe?
Remember folks; these are some of the same people who told us half a century ago that Thalidomide was safe --- and not to worry about mercury in vaccines (HERE)! Are you interested in the truth? Would you like to know the real story behind the artificial sweetener we call Aspartame? Are you ready to be angry enough to eat skunk? If you have an extra half hour to kill, read the nearly unbelievable history of Aspartame, its development, and battle to be legalized as a "safe" product for consumers. The story will sicken and infuriate you at the same time.
THE FOLLOWING is a sordid tale of intrigue, deception, outright lies, huge payoffs, and millionaire politicians. I promise that if you start reading the article you will not be able to put it down.
