To Amy Bertrand, Post Dispatch Health & Fitness Editor
Aspartame is a teratogen and causes birth defects and mental retardation. Read Aspartame Murders Infants:
Now read Dr. Louis Elsas testimony before Congress. He is a professor of Pediatrics, genetics. Aspartame is a neurotoxin.
As to studies, we have known all along that aspartame triggers cancer. FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross told congress that it violated the Delaney Amendment which forbids putting anything in food you know will cause cancer. He said it can cause brain tumors and brain cancer. His last words were "And if the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public?"
In original studies aspartame triggered brain, uterine, ovarian, testicular, pancreatic and thyroid tumors. And now a new study has been done in Italy showing aspartame triggers leukemia and lymphoma, and malignant brain tumors. They released more information about a week or so ago adding kidney cancer, cancer of the peripheral nerves, especially cranial.
Read it for yourself: http://www.wnho.net/new_aspartame_studies.htm
And here's a paper by Dr. James Bowen, The Lethal Science of Splenda. It's a chlorocarbon poison. http://www.wnho.net/splenda_chlorocarbon.htm
There is an entire medical text on it, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com and 1-800-827-7991. By Dr. H. J. Roberts, M.D.
Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. wrote Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, and explains how aspartame destroys the brain of infants. http:// www.russellblaylockmd.com
Here is a letter Dr. Blaylock wrote to the Miami Herald after someone from the aspartame industry's front group, Calorie Control Council, wrote pushing this toxin on pregnant women. They have to be completely amoral to want to destroy babies in their mother's womb. http://www.wnho.net/mh_aspartame_letter.htm
The movie, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, http://www.docworkers.com
There are many, many, reports on what aspartame does to the fetus. You obviously did no research. Do you have any idea how many women will take your word and lose their baby because of it? Here is Dr. Roberts position paper on Aspartame and Pregnancy: http://www.dorway.com/betty/pregnanc.txt
Retract this article immediately!! Do you realize how many babies can be killed by this article? I see you're in Monsanto's hometown. Are they the ones who put you up to this, or do you just get your information from front groups of industry? It seems odd that a health and nutrition editor wouldn't know how deadly these products are. There are over 2 million posts on the web on its dangers. And it's not a diet product. If you want to get fat aspartame is where its at. Read the protest of the National Soft Drink Assn, at the end, on http:// www.dorway.com. Notice Dr. Wurtman's affidavit that it is a drug that makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight.
