Introduction to Aspartame-Induced Cancer

The open letter reprinted below was written by Dr. James Bowen years ago when he lived in Michigan.  He is now in a VA Home in Oregon because of the ALS which he said was triggered by aspartame.  Maybe it will save someone else from this horrible disease because its now well known the epidemics precipitated by this deadly carcinogen.

Dr. Bowen wanted aspertame removed from the market rather than labeled, because the cover-up was such a huge issue people would not realize they were consuming a literal addictive, excito-neurotoxic, genetically engineered, carcinogenic drug, adjuvant and teratogen, causing (among many other illnesses) neural tube defects in pregnant women with no warnings by doctors or manufacturers.

Aspartame must be factually labeled a carcinogen – a deadly chemical poison.

Now, more than 2 decades later, everything Dr. Bowen had told the FDA has come to pass as medical texts have outlined; like “Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic”  by H. J. Roberts, M.D. ; “While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills” by Dr. Woodrow Monte; and “Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills” by neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock; and “Aspartame:  King of Toxins” written by another victim of aspartame poisoning, Reigh Parker Burch.

The aspartame industry has fought for years to prevent the public from knowing aspartame is a carcinogen.  The head of the European Food Safety Society resigned saying they were pressured by industry to hijack science.  Read all about it HERE.

Dr. Morando Soffritti did an outstanding study on aspartame showing it to be a multi-potential carcinogen and received an award for it, followed by two more studies.  The head of EFSA, Dr. Koeter, resigned rather than try to say the Ramazzini study wasn’t acceptable.  This is how well known it is that the aspartame industry will do anything to prevent people from knowing that aspartame is a carcinogen.

I would be interested in what other proof is needed to declare aspartame a deadly carcinogen.  You already have the admission of the FDA, the late Dr. Adrian Gross who testified to this fact and that it violated the Delaney Amendment to Congress available HERE.

Aspartame/cancer studies that have been done by independent, unbiased researchers have all confirmed cancer. This includes studies done at Harvard.

If you  see a study saying its safe, follow the money.

The aspartame industry has their own research front group, ILSI.  If they could prove it was safe for the FDA, why didn’t they? The FDA tried to indict them for fraud.

You see this same pattern of criminal censorship and “regulatory capture” it over and over again.

Dr. Diana Dow Edwards was paid to do a study for the industry on aspartame and birth defects. She found what Big Poison didn’t want the public to know. So the criminals withdrew their funding.

How does industry fix the studies?

Go http://www.holisticmed.com/aspartame/abuse/  Read about abuse in research.

Victoria Inness Brown was a victim of aspartame.  Because of the propaganda the aspartame industry outputs to mislead the public, Victoria couldn’t get people to believe her.  So, she decided to do her own study.  She wrote a book called “Are Your Diet Sodas Killing You? Results from My Aspartame Experiment”  (The book is available on www.amazon.com)

All you have to do is look at the pictures of the tumors in Victoria’s book.  One cancer is so big the poisoned rat is using it for a pillow!

Victoria testified with me and an official from the Philippines who tried to get aspartame banned there by a medical board.  We wanted the medical board to know that aspartame interacts with drugs and vaccines, and physicians are unaware.

Also, we wanted to warn the Philippine doctors that aspartame is in all generic gastrointestinal drugs and thousands of other ones. (There is a chapter on this in Dr. Roberts medical text.)  Unfortunately Victoria, in the end, lost her life.

How far will the aspartame industry go to cover up the fact  that aspartame is a carcinogen?

Enter the “Twilight Zone.”

In answer to the first Ramazzini study, the aspartame industry needed a big cancer study but there wasn’t one’ so they used a ten-year old food form which we warmly call “The Oatmeal Brownie Study.”

This is a form the AARP sent out to elderly people to see if they could remember what they ate in a year.  Out of 56 questions, aspartame was only even mentioned once.  It asked things like “have you had a hysterectomy?”  It also asked you about oatmeal and brownies.

At the time I was lecturing in New Zealand in a medical school when a medical student tried to use this food form as a study showing no cancer.  I told him I had a copy of this and maybe he would like to review it.  He was shocked and said, “this is a big nothing.”  I replied, “Of course, but the public will believe the propaganda and not look it up.”

This is what we have dealt with for decades.

Dr. Bowen, who wrote similar pleadings, developed cancer, and survived it.  He spent his life warning the world.  His paper below has been removed from several websites including www.dorway,com.  DORway stands for David Oliver Rietz who also lost his life from aspartame cancer.  You can watch Dr. Bowen in the documentary “Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World

This publication is an open comment so many others can return Dr. Bowen’s paper to the Internet following its censorship.

Lansing, MI 48910

My statement for the public record regarding food labeling and the aspartame issue is serious if not somewhat facetious at times. The reason for this is because I have found little evidence of honesty, integrity or stability on the part of Food & Drug Administration officials regarding the aspartame issue, since its approval in 1981. This attitude is largely shared by the general public. I come in contact with approximately two new people each week who are now being or who have in the past been poisoned by aspartame.

All of them share the same reactions that it is not worth writing to the FDA or NutraSweet, because you and your agency have run amuck and are no longer a valid public benefactor.

The recent revelations about the problems surrounding generic drug approvals are compelling evidence of what happens when an agency considered itself above the law in dealing with these matters. In my opinion, this has resulted in the mass poisoning of the American public as well as seventy-plus countries in the rest of the world. Watching FDA officials walk through the “revolving door” and be further rewarded by being promoted to other positions of high public responsibility is clear evidence of a government out of control.

For this reason, I am opposed to labeling aspartame content of food and drinks. To do so would imply that the government is taking some sort of responsible action…when the only responsible action would be to immediately take aspartame off the market, fully disclose its toxicities, offer full compensation to the injured, public and criminally prosecute anyone who participated in the fraudulent placement of aspartame on the marketplace. That includes those who work so diligently to keep in on the market as well.

Further, to label the purported aspartame content of a product would cover a number of toxic flaws in the product and its allowable daily intake (ADI) as follows:

That the amount stated on the label was accurate and factual rather than theoretical. Aspartame breaks down relatively quickly in solution. Given the well established modus operandi of the manufacturer, there is no concern given the ultimate consumer. And cover-ups seem to be a part of the routine of doing business. The public should be well advised that the amounts really used in liquid products are relatively greater than those stated to accomplish a relative compensation for the loss of product sweetness occurring during storage in solution.

That the ADI presently allowed is 50% greater than that expected to cause a reversal of the phenylalanine/tyrosine ratios in the human brain. This has profoundly bad implications for the human being, including dopamine and serotonin synthesis inhibition, causing depression, appetite changes, mental inabilities, increased susceptibility to seizures and a host of neurohormonal problems.

Every known metabolite of aspartame is of marked or questionable toxicity and patently unsafe for human use. Methyl alcohol is metabolized to nascent formaldehyde in the eye, nervous system and other metabolically active organs. It immediately attacks and denatures the tissue structure proteins in which is metabolized to nascent formaldehyde. This stimulates specific organ and subcellular autoimmunity which seems to be a preponderant source of the bad experiences reported by NutraSweet victims. Aspartic Acid is a neuroexcitotoxic present in damaging amounts, it own right, at the ADI for aspartame. Simple logic tells one that it will vastly increase the metabolism of methyl alcohol to formaldehyde attach there. This corresponds well with the symptomalogies often experienced, such as Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS), bulbar palsies, neurohormonal disorders, diketopiperazine issue remains totally unresolved and dangerous. The amino acids that are released by hydrolysis, form eimers and isomers that are either not sufficiently studied, or which are known substrates in undesirable pathological states such as Alzheimer’s disease.

There is the issue of the approval of aspartame for market, which has violated every principle of responsible science and responsible government. Everyone responsible for this hearing should at least completely review the approval process and the comments of the participants and observers who have so excellently elucidated all the malfeasance for the public record, such as Dr. Adrian Gross and many, many others (all on the public record.

In light of the above 4 points, I highly recommend that you deny in every way possible any subterfuge of respectability that the aspartame people have enshrouded themselves and their product within hopes of quickly denying its access to the worldwide marketplace. I write this, not believing that it will do the slightest bit of good in the sense of affecting the labeling issue per se, but that instead, it might reach some honest, concerned, conscientious individuals in the process.


Swedish Study Compounds Evidence of Diabetes Risk from Aspartame

Besides causing cancer, researchers in Sweden confirmed what we have known for decades.  Aspartame can precipitate diabetes, simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions and interacts with insulin. 

The free methyl alcohol in aspartame causes diabetics to lose limbs.  (“Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic” by the late diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame, H:. J. Roberts, MD.  Dr. Roberts was a member of the American Diabetes Assn. for 35 years and was outraged they would not tell diabetics life-saving truths, because the organization was receiving money from the aspartame industry.)  In support of Dr. Roberts’ crusade, I marched with diabetics at their rallies and give out infomation and Dr. Roberts position paper to  save their lives, and awaken others at risk.  I  shudder to think how many have perished worldwide. 

There is an alternative to this killing. Diabetics can use “Just Like Sugar,” which is made from organic food and has chicory which has been used for over 70 years to improve the health of diabetics.

The Swedish researchers also mentioned infertility, but didn’t report on the mechanism that is no doubt linked to the following:  Aspartame is an endocrine disrupting drug. It stimulates prolactin, changes the menses, and causes infertility. If a woman gets off of it, and gets pregnant, its a teratogen.   It also causes neural tube defects, spina bifida, and cleft palate in original studies.

Loyalties to aspartame manufacturersm that is “regulatory capture,” have caused the FDA to seal these studies, and keep the information from pregnant women. This has resulted in an epidemic of birth defects including autism through out the world. 

Original studies have now been added back to the Bressler Report on www.mpwhi.com where they had been removed by the FDA.  (This is discussed in medical texts by Dr. Roberts, and in While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills by Dr. Woodrow Monte).


Particular Warning to Diabetics about Splenda. 

Researchers found that diabetic patients using sucralose showed a statistically significant increase in glycosylated hemoglobin, a marker that is used to assess glycemic control in diabetic patients. According to the FDA, “increases in glycosolation in hemoglobin imply lessening of control of diabetes.”
