Aspartame: Scientific Studies Link Sweetener to Cancers

The controversial artificial sweetener Aspartame is making headline news, after a recent Italian study linked the common ingredient in diet drinks to lymphomas and leukemias. Aspartame was approved in a highly politicized maneuver involving pressure from Donald Rumsfeld, former CEO of Searle, the Aspartame manufacturer. The recommendations of the FDA's own scientific board of inquiry were disregarded by a political appointee to the FDA's top job, Arthur Hull Hayes, who over-ruled that board of inquiry approving Aspartame for sale, and soon after went to work for the PR Agency of Searle, Burson-Marsteller.

Aspartame critics have pointed to the FDA's own adverse events data and asked that the sweetener be taken off the market, but since the "forced" approval of Aspartame, the agency has been extremely reluctant to revisit the science or to even acknowledge the presence of apparently numerous reports of the sometimes severe side effects, such as sudden cardiac death, vision degradation and multiple sclerosis.

The recent Italian study linking the sweetener to cancers in laboratory animals, has forced the issue into view again. The European Food Control Agency announced that it will initiate a review of Aspartame in the light of this new new data.

A detailed comment from Betty Martini, referencing much of the previously collected information about adverse events calls for schools to prohibit the sale of aspartame laced diet drinks in the ever present vending machines...

ATLANTA, July 18, 2005 - The Cancer Research Center of the European Foundation of Oncology and Environmental Sciences in Bologna, Italy reported this week that a long-term study to evaluate the potential carcinogenic effects of aspartame demonstrates the chemical sweetener "induces an increase in lymphomas and leukemias in female rats." The research will be presented at a September international scientific conference, "Framing the Future in the Light of the Past: Living in a Chemical World."

Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock M.D. commented: "The new study released in the European Journal of oncology by Morando Soffritti and co-workers should terrify mothers and all those consuming aspartame sweetened products. This was a carefully done study which clearly demonstrated a statistically significant increase in several types of lymphomas and leukemias in rats. Both of these malignancies have increased significantly in this country since the widespread use of aspartame.

"This study confirmed the previous study by Dr. Trocho and co-workers, which also found the formaldehyde breakdown product of aspartame to be damaging to cellular DNA and that this damage was accumulative. The type of damage was a duplicate of that associated with cancers. Along with this most recent study, this means that drinking a single diet cola sweetened with aspartame every day could increase one's risk of developing a lymphoma or leukemia.

"They also found an increased incidence of malignant brain tumors, even though it was not statistically significant. This does not mean there is no association to brain tumors, since only the animals exposed to aspartame developed the tumors. With children and pregnant women drinking the largest amount of diet colas, this puts their children at the greatest risk of developing one of these horrible diseases . Their study found that even low doses of aspartame could cause these malignancies; yet, the higher the dose, the more cancers that were seen.

"Since aspartame can increase obesity and may even cause the metabolic syndrome that affects 48 million Americans, there is no reason to ever consume this product. At the least it should be immediately banned from all schools."

Dr. Blaylock wrote the Miami Herald to counteract propaganda by the Calorie Control Council, an aspartame front group: "It is known that the amount of toxic phenylalanine reaching the baby is twice as high as that in the mother's blood because the placenta concentrates the toxin. In addition, numerous metabolic breakdown products of aspartame are known to damage the developing infant's brain, including methanol, formaldehyde, formic acid, diketopiperazine and phenylacetate.

"Aspartame has been shown by several studies to damage DNA, which can lead to cancer and degenerative brain disorders later in life. The risk of increased brain tumors in such a child would be enormous. Similar mechanisms of damage would be expected in these with liver disease. Studies on aspartame safety have shown that the product increases tumors throughout numerous organs, especially the brain. It was shown that brain tumor incidence increased over 47 times in animals exposed to aspartame.

"With the public concern over childhood obesity and diabetes few are being told of the overwhelming evidence that early exposure to excitotoxins as found in aspartame consistently produce gross obesity and insulin resistant diabetes, just as we are seeing in our youth. The promoters of aspartame use have been lying from the beginning and continue to use their money and political clout to cover up the real and present dangers of this toxic product." Astonishingly the Miami Herald ignored Dr. Blaylock's lifesaving cry of alarm. "Clout" in Miami means advertising dollars!

The Division of Clinical Epidemiology of the University of Texas Health Center at San Antonio just reported a study by Sharon Fowler, MPH, that reviewed eight years of data confirming a diet soda link to obesity. She said: "Something linked to diet soda drinking is also linked to obesity.

An earlier study found weight gain among 78,694 women using artificial sweeteners: Stellman SD, Garfinkel L: "Artificial Sweetener Use and One-Year Weight Change Among Women. Prev Med 1985: 15: 195-202.

Joe Stalin said: "One man's death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic."
Consider the tragedy of an 8 year old child who consumed aspartame products as told by Dr. H. J. Roberts in his 1038 page magnum work "Aspartame Disease, an Ignored Epidemic". "In two years she developed marked swelling of one shoulder which then involved the neck. Her arm almost tripled in size. ... Numerous physicians and consultants diagnosed histiocytic leukemia. The patient received large doses of Prednisone. Of particular interest is there was dramatic clinical improvement and virtual normalization of the blood changes when the mother eliminated additives. Prednisone was stopped. The patient subsequently ate several bowls of an aspartame containing cereal. Marked swelling of the cheeks developed, coupled with recurrence of the aforementioned features. When aspartame was discontinued, the swelling receded without Prednisone.

"Several months later, the girl was given aspartame chewing gum without the mother's knowledge. Swelling of her entire body, recurrent enlargement of the liver and spleen, a dramatic increase of bone marrow histiocytes, and severe pain in many joints ensued. Total abstinence from aspartame again effected the disappearance of her symptoms and blood abnormalities within 6 months. At the time of Dr. Roberts last discussion with her mother, the child had minimal enlargement of the liver, and was receiving Prednisone in low doses only intermittently.

"The patient had two sets of head x-rays, three CT scans of the brain, two spinal punctures, four bone marrow studies, two electroencephalograms, two heart monitoring studies, two barium enemas, and a host of other studies. Her mother estimated the medical costs at $750,000." [Page 476]

Statistics?

Says Dr. Betty Martini: "There are millions of victims like this little girl! Once documented reports like hers were received as field research by medical professionals. That time has long passed. Today her near-murder is just an "anecdote", a statistic! What unspeakable torture to visit upon an innocent child by these heinous mass poisoners: the chemical sweetener cartel! I've sent thousands of case histories to the FDA and could as well be talking to the Egyptian pyramid of Cheops. The price of medical treatment in the USA means most American families are but a single serious illness from financial destruction. The agony, disablement, death and family ruination wrought by aspartame wrecks our land with a trail of devastation exceeding category 5 hurricanes! With incomparably greater cost and pain!"

Continued Dr. Martini, founder of Mission Possible International, a worldwide volunteer force which for 14 years has exposed chemical sweeteners: "How shall we count aspartame atrocities? Our FDA once listed them, named 92 symptoms from more than ten thousand volunteered complaints by American consumers. Their Buchenwald list included four kinds of seizures, blindness, sexual dysfunction, mental destruction and death. Then FDA shut the report window and no longer take and tabulate reports. I've sent them more cases than they listed, but you can't get the deathlist now; they deny it existed. Think of FDA simply as the branch office of the pharmaceutical industry in Washington!"

Martini states: "There's a war going on in our schools. A war for their health, their futures, their lives. It's a covert war, unannounced by the media, unknown by those to be sacrificed or their guardians. Our schools are dope houses. Millions or our children are on Ritalin, et al. Aspartame and toxic MSG are dumped on their lunches. An ever greater list of vaccines is commanded to contaminate their blood. The chemical cartel is insatiable! And what about the harvest? Are our kids healthier, fitter, better balanced and more secure than we were generations ago? We don't understand health! Every normal physical condition has become a malady treatable, not curable, only by medication, for life. Dr. Gary Null reported on his recent interview with Dr. Peter Rost, Pfizer Marketing VP, who candidly revealed the unbelievable drug company profits: Retail price of 100 Prozac 20mg tablets is $247.47. The active ingredient in ALL these is eleven cents! Jesus spoke of those who devour widows houses. Who could say it better?

"But in some states a minuteman call is going out: Ditch the drugs, void the vending machines packed with poisoned potions. A school system in Wisconsin set the pace, reported by the Finegold Association, whose mission includes generating awareness of the role of foods and additives in student learning, health and behavior problems.

Dr. Martini explained this in a letter to the Alabama Board of Education who recently met July 12 to decide about pop: "Aspartame has been proven to destroy brains, trigger psychiatric and behavioral problems, cause eye disorders (including blindness), addict and trigger brain tumors." http://www.wnho.net/alabama_boe_meeting.htm

Betty Peters, of the Alabama Board of Education asked for an amendment to remove all soda pop from Alabama schools, but this was reduced to simply revise the current system and allow diet drinks, this with full knowledge that diet drinks cause more obesity. The vending machine proposal was gutted to appease the soft drink industry. But where was the concern for the children?

Dr. Roberts reviewed the Italian study, concluding: "It's now incumbent upon researchers of leukemia and lymphoma to inquire about the use of aspartame products routinely in such patients. And its also highly relevant to the striking increase of primary brain lymphoma which I reviewed in my books and articles. You are dealing with a unique lymphoma of the brain, which most neurologists had not seen before the availability of aspartame. In view of the unequivocal induction of brain tumors and of leukemia/lymphoma in experimental animals the intent of the Delaney Amendment should be invoked. This justifies aspartame as an imminent public health hazard that should be removed from the market as I've emphasized for two decades."

In the "Journal of Advance in Medicine" Vol 4 #4, winter '91 article: "Does Aspartame Cause Human Brain Cancer" Dr. Roberts said: "The increasing frequency of primary brain lymphoma of B cell derivation - including reticulum cell sarcoma, microglioma and histiocytic lymphoma - also requires explanation because this subset was previously rare. Eby et al reported a nearly threefold rise in its incidence among immunologically normal persons in the l982-l984 SEER data, which they could not explain. Specifically, the rate increased from 2.7 to 7.5 cases per ten million population (p=0.001) in the time periods 1973-1975 and 1982-1984, respectively. The age-adjusted rise was more striking among women which increased from 4.9 per ten million in 1979-1981 to 8.9 per ten million in 1982-1984.

Again Dr. Roberts tells us "Hockberg and Miller reported a tripling of incidence of this tumor in non-immunosuppressed persons during the 5 year interval between 1980 and 1984."

Dr. Blaylock is author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, Health & Nutrition Secrets to Save Your Life and Cancer Strategies. He also has a newsletter that keeps you up-to-date on these matters.

How was aspartame ever approved by FDA?

For 16 years it was rejected. FDA even asked the Department of Justice to prosecute the manufacturer, G.D. Searle Co. for submitting fraudulent test data on aspartame. Two prosecutors were appointed, but the defense lawyers hired both of them and the case expired with the statute of limitations. When the Godfather hires the District Attorney don't expect a conviction. Next Don Rumsfeld, CEO of G D Searle, returned to Washington and a new FDA commissioner was appointed immediately who approved aspartame over the objections of the FDA scientific board. This new commissioner was under investigation for conflict of interest when he switched to take $1,000/day consulting job with the public relations firm that represented NutraSweet. All in the family! The plague loosed on humanity by this chicanery is also known as Rumsfeld's Disease. Hear attorney James Turner explain it in this clip from the documentary: "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World".

The Italian study press release says the results demonstrate for the first time aspartame is a carcinogenic agent -- "As recognized by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization, results of long-term bioassays conducted on rodents (rats and mice) are highly predictive of carcinogenic risk for humans. In light of this fact, the results of the CRC/ERF study on aspartame call for urgent reconsideration of regulations governing its use as an artificial sweetener in order to better protect public health, in particular that of children."

This is the most recent of many projects which confirms aspartame's toxicity beyond controversy. FDA & Searle have always known aspartame is a Class A Carcinogen. The late FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress that aspartame, beyond a shadow of a doubt can produce brain tumors and brain cancer, and violates the Delaney Amendment which forbids anything in food which causes cancer. His last words to Congress: "If the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public?" Ten thousand tombstones show that only a concerned citizenry can achieve save itself from all the 92 symptoms FDA once listed.

To children aspartame is murder. It's an abortifacient and teratogen; causing abortions, birth defects and retardation. If a live child is born aspartame may have heinously damaged its DNA for generations to come. Our schools are so inundated with problems that today the norm is "abnormal". Only eradication of this poison will eliminate aspartame's physical, behavioral, psychiatric maladies and learning disabilities. Industry's greed is keeping it schools to addict our children for life. They even got FDA to approve new deadly chemicals: Splenda and Acesulfame Potassium. See: "The Lethal Science of Splenda"


BRAIN TUMOR LITIGATION EXPANDED:

Mississippi and Madison County Illinois are new locations attorneys are receiving aspartame brain tumor cases to litigate in addition to New York and New Jersey. Original press release about the case here.

Faerie Films has a national contest until August 31 for children to record the difference good nutrition makes and be in the upcoming documentary "Vending Machine!"

Stephen Fox authored legislation to create a New Mexico Nutrition Council, with powers to reject products approved by FDA, particularly aspartame. The sponsor of the bill in 2005 is Sen. Ben Altamirano, President Pro Tem, NM Senate. It passed the Senate 32 to1. Regrettably corporate lobbyists from Kraft & Philip Morris hamstrung the bill in a committee, then it was killed by a filibuster on the last day in the House. Sen. Altamirano will sponsor it again in 2006 and expects corporate lobbyists to war against this legislation, which is the strongest effort to strengthen consumer protection in the US. The bill, Senate Bill 525, can be adapted for any state legislature. For more information on this legislation you can contact Stephen Fox [stephen@santafefineart.com]

The Aspartame industry says since their sweetener was "safely used" by many people, the study showing association with cancer in rats might as well be disregarded. Here is Betty Martini's comment to that.

Aspartame Makers Tell A Whopper, Says Mission Possible

A three year Italian study on Aspartame in rats revealed a connection between the artificial sweetener and leukemia,lymphoma and malignant brain tumors. It conclusively proved that aspartame is a carcinogen, say the study's authors. A neurosurgeon calls to get it out of the schools. These claims rebut those of Aspartame manufacturers.

ATLANTA July 22, 2005 -- The European Ramazzini Foundation of Oncology and Environmental Sciences Cancer Research Centre in Bolonga, Italy, just released their three year study confirming the link between aspartame and lymphomas and leukemias.

The report by Morando Soffritti "Aspartame induces lymphomas and leukemias in rats" is in the European Journal of Oncology for July, 2005. Dr. Soffritti and his team carefully set the conditions whereby genetically-uniform test rats were treated equally with the exception of being divided into groups given varying levels of the toxic chemical sweetener.

Rats are deemed appropriate subjects for testing aspartame on humans because both humans and rats metabolize the methyl ester in aspartame into methyl alcohol, then formaldehyde then formic acid - all deadly poisons. The carcinogenicity of substances in rats and mice is a consistent predictor of cancer risk in humans exposed to those substances.

The study commenced with 8 week old rats and continued until the last one died at 159 weeks. Their physical status and behavior were examined three times daily and detailed records of their growth were kept. Every two weeks each of the 3,600 rats were "clinically examined for gross changes." As each rat died, a complete autopsy was performed. Organs, tissues and bones were preserved for further study.

"In our experimental conditions, it has been demonstrated that APM [aspartame] causes a dose-related statistically significant increase in lymphomas and leukemias in females at dose levels very near those to which humans can be exposed," the authors wrote in their conclusion. The number of cancers that developed in rats given zero aspartame was zero.

Increases of lymphomas and leukemias at the lowest exposure level was 62 percent and "an increase in the incidence of these types of neoplasias was also observed in males exposed to the highest dose," as stated in the study.

Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, MD, one of the world's leading authorities on aspartame neurotoxicity, extensively reviewed the Soffritti report. "This study confirmed the previous study by Dr. Trocho and co-workers (1998), which also found the formaldehyde breakdown product of aspartame to be damaging to cellular DNA and that this damage was cumulative. The type of damage was a duplicate of that associated with cancers. These two studies strongly indicate that drinking a single diet cola sweetened with aspartame every day could significantly increase one's risk of developing a lymphoma or leukemia," Blaylock said.

"This study should terrify mothers and all those consuming aspartame sweetened products," he continued. "This was a carefully done study which clearly demonstrated a statistically significant increase in several types of lymphomas and leukemias in rats. Both of these malignancies have increased significantly in this country since the widespread use of aspartame."

"They also found an increased incidence of malignant brain tumors, even though it was not statistically significant. This does not mean there is no association to brain tumors, since ONLY the animals exposed to aspartame developed the tumors. With children and pregnant women drinking the largest amount of diet colas, this puts their children at the greatest risk of developing one of these horrible diseases. Their found that even lower doses of aspartame could cause these malignancies, yet, the higher the dose, the more cancers that were seen," said Blaylock.

"Since aspartame can increase obesity and may even cause the metabolic syndrome that affects 48 million Americans, there is no reason to ever consume this product. At the least, it should be immediately banned from all schools," said Blaylock.

Aspartame was approved for use in dry goods in 1981 under extremely controversial circumstances. The artificial sweetener is currently found in more than 6,000 products-soft drinks, chewing gum, candy, desserts, table sweeteners and even pharmaceutical drugs and is responsible for more than 80 percent of consumer complaints filed with the FDA each year. The FDA itself has published a list of 92 potentially adverse reactions to aspartame that includes weight gain, blindness, chronic headaches, insanity and death.

Soffritti et al conducted this study because they wanted to determine whether or not the ADI for aspartame (50 and 40 milligrams per kilogram of body weight per day in the U.S. and Europe respectively) was an appropriate limit. Their report concludes with these words: "Results of our study call for urgent reexamination of permissible exposure level of aspartame in both food and beverages, especially to protect children."

Here comes the Whopper. Makers and sellers of aspartame tried to rebut this impeccable European research saying: "With billions of man-years of safe use, there is no indication of an association between aspartame and cancer in humans."

From: "Dr. Betty Martini,D.Hum."
Subject: Kentucky: Aspartame Death Capital of USA.
MS, Leukemia, Autoimmune Diseases Rampant, Harlan County.

The letter below is from Sharon Bevins, Mission Possible, Pound, Virginia. An extremely interesting point is she says leukemia should be included in the diseases triggered by aspartame, not knowing that the Italian Study has just proven the point. Here is her research: Regards, Betty

My name is Sharon Bevins, Mission Possible Pound, Virginia. I have been an elementary teacher in Wise County, Virginia for twenty-four years. I have been interested in nutrition for years, solely to obtain better health for myself. I had gone through a traumatic divorce in l980 and ate very little food during this time. About the time I started a teaching career, I came down with various ailments such as asthma, chronic fatigue, chronic sinusitis, nasal polyps, etc. After being kept on steroids for several years by regular doctors, I decided there had to be a better way. I found a regular doctor in Marion, Virginia that practiced alternative methods. He put me on a strict diet of nothing but limited meats, fruits, vegetables and water. Basically, what I was doing was a low glycemic diet, getting all of the toxins and poisons out of my body. He also put me on an anti-yeast regimen and put me on some good high powered vitamins and minerals. Within two months every symptom I had left me, and I was completely well. Needless to say it took me years to adjust to a strict diet, but now I do know how to get well!

Two years ago, I met a couple of women at a natural health food store, that basically changed my life. They introduced me to a book called "Death by Diet" by a bio-chemist called Robert Barefoot. The book explained all the functions that calcium did in the body and that ait could even prevent and cure cancer! I started giving some of this information out to my friends and relatives who were sick with various ailments, such as lupus, fibromyalgia, MS, different types of cancer. I noticed that almost all on my list were women! I wondered why?

I had read an article in a women's magazine that said that women were dying across America at twice the rate of men on almost every disease, especially autoimmune diseases. I started taking informed surveys across the region I lived in (southwest Virginia and eastern Kentucky), to see if I could come up with some answers. I knew that women were dieting all the time, this was obvious! I found they were not big meat eaters and milk drinkers like men, losing major sources of protein and calcium. The women at the health food store showed me a brochure about the damaging effects of aspartame in diet products. I knew it was bad, but I had no idea at the time just how bad!! I started calling everyone on my list to ask if they drank diet soda. Every one of them did, except one or two. Could there be a connection? It seemed too coincidental. I stepped up my surveys to see just how prevalent the usage of diet sodas were in this area, and if all the symptoms on this brochure could be true!! What I discovered was astounding to say the least! A cold chill went over me. American was being poisoned on a national level!! How could this be? How could something so devastating be on the market?

I discovered regular doctors were recommending it, especially for diabetics. Every person I met that had diabetes, drank diet soda. They trusted their doctor and thought they were doing a good thing. Except all the ones I talked to, were so sick and their blood sugar was out of control. They were losing their eyesight, and attributing it to the diabetes. I began to suspect diet soda was causing the diabetes epidemic. Heavy people that you would think would have diabetes, that didn't drink diet pop, didn't have diabetes. Skinny people who should not have it, were drinking diet sodas and had diabetes. I started going back to every case in my hometown of people that had died prematurely, and subsequently found they were all heavy diet pop drinkers. Even my own best friend, who had died at age 47, seven years ago with diabetes complications. I was just now connecting the dots. Every case of cancer, big diet soda drinkers. The list goes on and on. (I wouldn't have believed it, if I had not been in the trenches working with so many people.) I know it is not the factor in every case of sickness. Smoking and high sugar consumption plays a part. But diet soda consumption seem to be the major factor! I was seeing women miscarrying, doing everything they thought was healthy, but drinking diet sodas. I was seeing children that I taught that were slow learners, or irreparably brain damaged where they could learn nothing, after some investigation found that all the mothers had drunk diet soda when they were pregnant. I think this makes the baby be born with a compromised immune system, and the vaccinations are pushing them over the edge to autism, asthma, diabetes, cancer and death!! This would explain why many children escape the ill effects of the vaccines. Most women that I see that are very sick, are smokers and soda drinkers.

I believe I have added another disease to the 90 list of symptoms: leukemia, (of course, most of these diseases are aspartame poisoning, just misdiagnosed by regular doctors). I started noticing that all the cases in my hometown where people had been diagnosed with leukemia was connected to diet soda. Some were dead. Those that I could reach with my information were getting well. When I hear of a celebrity or world leader with a mysterious blood disorder, I automatically think: diet soda!! (MARTINI: See news release on the recent new studies on aspartame showing aspartame triggers leukemia, lymphoma and malignant brain tumors - http://www.wnho.net/new_aspartame_studies.htm)

Arafat was never really diagnosed with anything for sure, but I suspect it was diet soda. Whenever I see anyone with seizures, palsy, paralysis in the legs, this is what I suspect. I started questioning people in buggies that couldn't walk at various stores and guess what? All heavy diet pop users, almost without exception. (IN my research on aspartame, I discovered it destroyed the vitamin B complex, which controls the central nervous system). One particular man in my hometown that I graduated with, was so gaunt looking, palsied and almost near death, was on a feeding tube. It took me awhile, but I discovered he lived on diet sodas for years. My suspicions were true! One man, who had brain cancer, that I've been working with, is now beating the cancer, but his short term memory is gone!! The only liquid he put in his body was diet sodas for fifteen years!!! I am finding that women are substituting milk, for diet soda. Certain patterns are emerging. They don't eat a good breakfast, they don't eat many fruits and vegetables, they don't drink milk, eat little meat, and are huge diet soda consumers. It is so addictive. I've met women who told me, it would have to kill them before they would give it up! It is their life!! I always tell them, it most assuredly will do so. One man I met was drinking sixteen to eighteen a day!! Needless to say, these people are all terribly sick. I am seeing some people who have drink it for years, and seem to be in good health. They are meat eaters, with the protein protecting them from the poison. A protein will kick out sugars, toxins, lessening the damage to the cells. It keeps the toxins from spiking the blood sugar.

I read an article a few years ago, about an adjoining county to mine, Harlan County, Ky. This area had the highest amount of autoimmune diseases in the nation, and I found out recently they had the highest rate of soda consumption, especially diet soda. No one has made the connection until now. I met a nurse from this area that said MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS WAS RAMPANT. I have been trying to canvas this area and give out the brochures about the effects of aspartame poisoning. I feel like this problem is greater in this area of Appalachia than other parts of the nation, because of the poor diets of the people, and the high amount of cigarette consumption.

I have been to over 300 businesses, schools, libraries, hospitals, etc. with the information on aspartame. The message is getting out!! ....But knowing this information, I cannot stand idly by, and let people suffer and die needlessly when I know the answer. .
