This is concerning the article, "Plea For Sweetener", which appeared in The Washington Post on April 5, 1979 (Searle' continued shenanigans trying to get aspartame approved)

You will find the article below.

What Searle didn't dream up trying to get aspartame approved. About this group of pathologists mentioned in the article, they are mentioned in Dr. H. J. Roberts first book on aspartame, "Aspartame (NutraSweet) Is It Safe?" in the chapter, "The Myth of the Most Thoroughly Tested Additive in History", page 243:

"The failure to challenge the manufacturer's contract with Universities Associated for Research and Education in Pathology (UAREP). This private group was engaged to determine the factual accuracy of prior aspartame studies - but with stipulation that UAREP "shall not express an opinion" regarding either the design of safety significance of these studies, nor make recommendations about the safety of aspartame for human use! Dr. M. Adrian Gross also challenged the credentials of UAREP relative to its ability to assess prior aspartame studies."

Translation: They were sworn to science and for this was paid a half a million dollars by Searle. UAREP is also discussed in Dr. Roberts medical text on the global plague - Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic,

Jonathan Swift once said "Falsehood flies and the truth comes limping after; so that when men come to be undeceived it is too late: the jest is over and the tale has had its effect." So here is the truth of the matter but the aspartame disease toll has taken the lives of millions.

In a strongly worded letter, G. D. Searle & Co. asked the Food and Drug Administration to remove its suspension of approval for Searle's aspartame, an artifical sweetener.

The FDA approved the sweetener in July 1974 because of questions about the reliability of Searle's test data for the sweetener.

Those objections were resolved last December when an independent group of university pathologists gave a clean bill to the Searle testing.
