"Today, MIT gets research funds but Dr. Wurtman no longer speaks out on aspartame. However, he left quite a paper trail including a book he edited called: "Dietary Phenylalanine and Brain Function". Phenylalanine in aspartame as an isolate and at 50% of the molecule is neurotoxic, floods the brain lowering the seizure threshold and depleting serotonin. Lowered serotonin triggers psychiatric and behavioral problems. Aspartame interacts with all antidepressants."

"This affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes the addiction."

Too bad the MSM never covers Donald Rumsfeld's role in getting Aspartame pushed through FDA approval. Talk about damage to the American people at large!

REAGAN, not Rumsfeld. Rumsfeld was the head of Searle back then, doing his job to get a product to market.

Reagan was the one who wasted no time firing the head of the FDA, putting in a new one, Hale I believe, whose first act was to pass aspartame.

It doesn't get much more obviously corrupt than that.


That is why, among many other reasons, I said "FINALLY!!" when that bastard croaked.

Yes, Rummy is a Searley son of a b*tch.

Where are those tort lawyers when you need them?

I'd like to see some classy action suits, and I don't mean the female spandex kind, at the moment, either.

I want some cherry torts.

FDA approved aspartame in 1974, long before Reagan. Check the Rumsfeld, Nixon, Pepsi Co. CEO link......

Pattern of conduct of Searle's testing and results was considered willful misrepresentation of the product's dangers.

yes and Searle's law firm hired the DOJ attorneys who were leading the case, leaving the gov unable to bring suit before statute of limitations expired. Rumsfeld lead a corrupt operation with the help of his friends. He has placed a poison in the market and made millions doing so.
truly a vile human.

MSM bought and paid for by big business for big business. Freedom of the press is dead.

You're partially right. It was granted approval for restricted use. However, that does not equate to the mass market that it has now, which Reagan is responsible for.

"Safe than most other poison."

That's like telling people to drive a compact car instead of an SUV because it won't hurt the pedestrian as much when he gets run over.
