Open Letter To The FDA – Freedom Of Information – Aspartame

Dr. Betty Martini, D. Hum

Note: While this is being sent certified mail it is also sent by email as an open letter for these reasons. (1) With email you can open the URL’s although some documents will be sent. (2) We are asking that everyone who reads this and want aspartame off the market to send it to their Senator and Congressman, and to forward.
Before I list the questions, consider that aspartame is illegally on the market.
In January, 2010, New York food attorney, Marc Ullman, was commenting on a product marketed as an “antioxidant, testosterone booster”. He said this particular product should be classified under food law because of the claim made by the manufacturer about how the ingredients enter the bloodstream. The manufacturer had stated the so-called active ingredients are instantly absorbed into the body through the capillaries, and therefore it is illegal.

Aspartame is a drug. It is absorbed as methanol and breaks down into formaldehyde after it is already in the bloodstream. Methanol breaks down into formic acid in other areas such as the eye, for example.

Formaldehyde breaks down into formic acid in the body. With aspartame, the formaldehyde accumulates in the body as “adducts.

Even if it didn’t though, having excess levels of formaldehyde passing through the body is a significant toxicity hazard. The manufacturers used urine formic acid measurements. It has been shown that such measurements are not reliable for low-level, chronic formaldehyde poisoning. The technique they used for plasma formic acid measurements was flawed and has been called “notoriously inaccurate” by one Formic acid researcher.
Secondly, aspartame violates the Delaney Amendment admitted by Dr. Adrian Gross to Congress in 1985, because it caused brain tumors and brain cancer. Even the Bressler Report mentions adenocarcinoma.
Then Dr. Morando Soffritti proved aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen in the Ramazzini Studies peer reviewed by 7 world experts. Keep in mind this was four years after aspartame was approved through the political chicanery of Don Rumsfeld. Dr. Jacqueline Verrett, FDA toxicologist also testified, and admitted now 6 years after being approved that aspartame has not been proven safe.
Keep in mind, that these two FDA toxicologists were actually the ones who investigated aspartame, and Dr. Gross was the one who wanted G. D. Searle to be indicted for fraud. As you know, both US Prosecutors hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired. 
Dr. Gross also testified that because of the cancer the FDA should not have been able to give an allowable daily intake. So bottom line, testimony before Congress by the very FDA employees who investigated aspartame said it wasn’t safe. Even 6 years after being marketed. No doubt the reason no moratorium was put on aspartame then, and Senator Metzenbaum’s bill never got out of committee was because of Senator Orrin Hatch who was given money by Monsanto, and wouldn’t even allow congressional hearings until 1985, even though the complaints were so high it was admitted in Congress that FDA started sending complaints to the AIDS hotline.
In l986 the Community Nutrition Institute and James Turner, Atty, petitioned the FDA to ban it because so many were going blind and having seizures on aspartame. It was taken all the way to the Supreme Court. It is rumored industry got to the judge. So here we are in 2010 with more of this poison on the market, and the arrogant manufacturer is petitioning to let loose another aspartame product, and the ingredients have already been proven to interact.
Third, aspartame violates adulteration statues as even admitted by the National Soft Drink Association, now American Beverage. Even the breakdown into formaldehyde has been proven by peer reviewed research, the Trocho Study by Dr. Maria Alemany. His personal comments to me in Barcelona were: “Aspartame will kill 200 million people.” I believe it already has since aspartame is an abortifacient, teratogen and carcinogen and can precipitate neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimers and ALS. Cancer is rampant.
