Here is an opportunity for the Committee on Health to hear the health effects of aspartame and Splenda. When I mentioned about deceptive advertising I was told it's mostly on health effects. There is very little time. The meeting is in Sacramento and if you want to help you need to stop and write your case and send it for it to get there by the early part of the week. Otherwise, it won't get in the record. Here is where you send it:
Allegra N. Kim
Assembly Committee on Health
State Capitol, Room 6005
Sacramento, CA 95814
Physicians should also write. If you live in California and want to testify you can be present. You need to call Allegra Kim for time. Here is an opportunity for a Committee on Health to hear what these two poisons are doing to the public. Every letter counts. If you are from other countries it doesn't make any difference. Let them know because of FDA approval which was rubberstamped around the world like in the case of aspartame, the world is poisoned. I know in the case of England and New Zealand no studies were done there, they accepted the FDA approval. Yet, the FDA actually revoked the petition for approval: http://www.mpwhi.com/fda_petition1.doc and tried to have the manufacturer indicted for fraud. Hear the story in the aspartame documentary: Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, http://www.soundandfury.tv In the end it was through the political chicanery of Don Rumsfeld that got this addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug on the market which is masquerading as an additive. It interacts with virtually all drugs and toxins because of damage to the mitochondrdia or life of the cell.
The medical text on aspartame is over 1000 pages, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com by H. J. Roberts, M.D.
Russell Blaylock, M.D., wrote Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills on aspartame and MSG, http://www.russellblaylockmd.com
It is of interest that Dr. James Bowen says if you go from aspartame to Splenda you will maintain the reactions of aspartame and pick up those from Splenda. Aspartame is a chemical hypersensitization agent. We hope all aspartame victims who read this will help to get the facts to the committee.
All my best,

Chair of the California Assembly Committee on Health, Mervyn M. Dymally (D-Compton), has announced he will hold legislative hearings on the use of deceptive advertising to promote artificial sweetenerslike Splenda. The hearings will take place after the current legislative session. Below you will find the statement from Assembly member Dymally announcing the hearing and a statement from the Sugar Association applauding his decision.
The Health Committee is interested in hearing from consumers who have had negative experiences with food additives like Splenda and from food safety or consumer watchdog groups.
For more than three years, the Truth About Splenda Campaign has worked to correct consumer confusion due to what we believe is Splenda's misleading marketing. We urge any consumers or organizations that would like to be considered for the witness list to contact Francis Taylor with the California Assembly Committee on Health. Please forward this important email to your family and friends/ Thank you, (Martini: Get in touch with Allegra Kim at the above number.)
