Do you use Nutrasweet? Did you ever hear how for 16 years the FDA refused to approve it? That it might be really harmful? That it can cause seizures?

Here’s an excerpt from a letter written by Dr. Betty Martini about the approval of Nutrasweet by the FDA

For 16 years the FDA refused to approve it, not only because its not safe but because they wanted the company indicted for fraud. Both U.S. Prosecutors hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired. They were Sam Skinner and William Conlon. Skinner went on to become Secretary of Transportation squelching the cries of the pilots who were by now having seizures on this seizure triggering drug, aspartame, and then Chief of Staff under President Bush’s father. Some of these people reach high places. Even Supreme Justice Clarence Thomas is a former Monsanto attorney. (Monsanto bought Searle in l985, and sold it a few years ago). When Ashcroft became Attorney General, Thompson from King and Spalding Attorneys (another former Monsanto attorney) became deputy under Ashcroft. (Attorneys for NutraSweet and Coke).

However, the FDA still refused to allow NutraSweet on the market. It is a deadly neurotoxic drug masquerading as an additive. It interacts with all antidepressants, L-dopa, Coumadin, hormones, insulin, all cardiac medication, and many others. It also is a chemical hypersensitization drug so that it interacts with vaccines, other toxins, other unsafe sweeteners like Splenda which has a chlorinated base like DDT and can cause autoimmune disease. It has a synergistic and additive effect with MSG. (www.truthinlabeling.org). Both being excitotoxins, the aspartic acid in aspartame, and MSG, the glutamate people were found using aspartame as the placebo for MSG studies, even before it was approved. The FDA has known this for a quarter of a century and done nothing even though its against the law. Searle went on to build a NutraSweet factory and had $9 million worth of inventory.

So how did it get through? I mean, our government wouldn’t do something that they know would harm us, right?

There was a guy on Reagan’s transition tea. he cam in and appointed a new head of the FDA. The FDA set up a board of inquiry made up of top scientists and determined that Nutrasweet was not safe and they did not want to approve it. The new FDA head, Arthur Hull Hayes, overruled their findings. To this day he refuses to speak on the subject.

Oh, and the head of the transition team who appointed Hulls? He happened to also at one time be the CEO of Searle, Nutrasweet’s parent company.

His name shouldn’t be any cause for concern.

Conspiracy theories are for nuts who live in their mom’s basements right?

Why get worked up?

His name?

Donald Rumsfeld.

And for the record–I drink my coffee black
