Aspartame: War Was Not The Only Thing Donald Rumsfeld Brought America


Notwithstanding the fact that aspartame has been shown to cause increased incidents of leukemia and lymphoma in animals, the FDA approved aspartame for use in certain dry foods in 1981 and for soft drinks in 1983. In 1996, it removed all restrictions, allowing use in all food products, including ones exposed to heat, which separates the main ingredients. The FDA has set an acceptable daily limit of 50 mg per kg of body weight, which assumes that aspartame can safely replace all sucrose sweeteners in the diet.

  • A study conducted at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center reported a 41% increase in risk of being overweight for every can or bottle of diet soft drink a person consumes each day.

  • Aspartame ingestion leads to significant exposure to and accumulation of formaldehyde in the organs and tissues. Formaldehyde is more hazardous than most chemicals in 5 out of 12 ranking systems, on at least 8 federal regulatory lists, ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to ecosystems and human health (Environmental Defense Fund)

  • A published study in Sweden that looked at various possible causes of brain tumors (e.g., cell phones, aspartame) found a link between use of diet drinks and certain types of large brain tumors in middle-aged and elderly population groups.
How could the FDA approve such a dangerous product and continue to allow its use?

It just so happens that G.D. Searle is the manufacturer of asparame and Donald Rumsfeld was its CEO from 1977 until 1985.

G.D. Searle is now the "pharmaceutical" arm of santo.

Wasn't that right around the same time he was meeting with Saddam Hussein to sell him biological and chemical weaponry (1983)?

I don't drink soda period -- esp diet or other drinks with tons of man-made stuff in it.

I think these chemicals are simply bad for you... Our systems have evolved to deal with naturally occurring proteins, sugars, carbs, etc... Who knows what the hell will happen after 30 years of exposure to this shit.

I also avoid high concentrations of "natural" sweeteners like corn syrup. Our bodies simply aren't designed to deal with large quantities of sugars. For one thing, you don't get a 'full feeling' from drinking yet people can now get 1000+ calories/day just from drinks...

II, thanks for the post. I used to drink diet drinks sparingly, but this will cause me to stop drinking them entirely.

Beer and Wine though will remain in my diet :)

Anonymous,

Thanks for the link. It's amazing how much info is out there, but people keep drinking the poison.

ROR,

I thought you would be willing to take the word of scientists over disgruntled parents any day? Isn't your faith in science paramount to all other considerations. Here's a group of "scientists" who say aspartame is perfectly safe. http://www.aspartame.org/

Mr. Sleep,

Aspartame breaks down into methanol (wood alcohol) and formaldehyde when it reaches appx 90 degrees F. I highly doubt that there is a can of Diet Coke that hasn't reached that temperature in transit or storade. Thus, you are drinking formaldehyde and methanol everytime you drink something with aspartame.

I do have faith in scientists and data... however, politics and corrupt practices have always been able to bury the truth.

I don't know if this stuff is as bad as they say (there's a good, rational presentation of the controversy here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspartame_controversy) but I don't put it past the FDA -- as a gov org -- to pander to corporate America.
