Aspartame Battle Moves from New Mexico Boards to As Yet Undelivered Attorney General's Opinion; Member of UK Parliament
ment, Roger Williams, calls for UK Ban of Aspartame as Neurotoxic, Carcinogenic, and Neurodegenerative Artificial Sweetener
Aspartame Battle Moves from New Mexico Boards to As Yet Undelivered Attorney General's Opinion on how
an FDA approved product and neurotoxic food and medicine additive can be challenged despite industry claims of federal preemption; UK Member of Parliament, Roger Williams, calls for UK Ban of Aspartame as Neurotoxic, Carcinogenic, and Neurodegenerative Artificial Sweetener
Both the New Mexico Board of Pharmacy and the Environmental Improvement Board have petitions before them to amend the Administrative Code with a new chapter which bans neurotoxic additives, to medications and to foods.
There are over 6000 food products with aspartame and over 500 medications, primarily children's meds and vitamins, which contain aspartame, even thougheveryone knows that it turns to Formaldehyde (among other toxic metabolites).
The world's largest Aspartame manufacturer, Ajinomoto (also the world's largest MSG manufacturer) has hired the Rodey Firm and a Washington D.C. law firm FDA specialist to hammer these two boards into silence and to force them
to abandon any future hearings on aspartame, primarily riding on the absurd logic that because aspartame was approved by the FDA, any state level
challenge would therefore be preempted by the Federal approval.
The Ajinomoto/ Rodey lawyer in so many words told the Pharmacy Board on November 14 that they didn't have the expertise nor the manpower to read, let alone to comprehend the FDA's one to ten million pages proving that aspartame was safe, even though 6 out of 9 of them are pharmacists, and that the reason the petitioners, myself and Santa Fe Pediatrician Ken Stoller, came to them instead of the FDA with this petition, is that we thought they "must be easier to push around."
In fact, the FDA has ignored all of the petitions to ban aspartame, and a meaningful preemption for aspartame is impossible, given the political
channels used to get its approval in 1981, and for soft drinks, over the objections of the National Soft Drink Association, in 1983. I believe that the FDA's approval processes for food additives are so corrupt and manipulated by
corporate mendacity and phony research, that the states' regulatory processes
are the only possible salvation for health in America.
Under pressure from Ajinomoto/Rodey and a bit less pressure from the Montgomery and Andrews firm, retained by industry front group, the Calorie Control Council, both boards have asked Attorney General Patricia Madrid for a
formal Attorney General's Opinion as to whether this Federal-preemption-due-to-FDA-approval crumbling mythologies will prevent any
action by the two boards.
The co-petitioners and other consumer advocates who recognize the importance of this Attorney General's Opinion are hopeful that with her generally strong stands for New Mexico states' rights over the past 7 years, as well as the
clear authority for these boards explicitly delineated in several NM statutes to examine such questions, that her Opinion will be a landmark one for consumer protection efforts in every state.
Rather than wait till such opinion is delivered, however, I encourage the reader to write to the Honorable Patricia Madrid, and to her Deputy, the
Honorable Stuart Bluestone, the Bataan Building, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501, and make your views known. You can contact them directly at (505) 827-6000 and (505) 827-6004, and you can email them as well. You can also discuss this urgent medical need with your legislators and encourage them to support the creation of a powerful new New Mexico Nutrition Council, described in Senator
Altamirano's Senate Bill 525 from 2005, which you can read on the NM Legislature website. Altamirano is the President Pro Tempore of the New Mexico
Governor Bill Richardson's views on this are clear: he supports the EIB's
decision to move forward with aspartame hearings, because "the Federal government has not done enough to warn people about the dangers of aspartame," he stated on October 5 to the Albuquerque Journal. Richardson can be reached
at 505 827-3000; Press Sec. is Billy Sparks.
For more information, please go to the website for the World Natural Health Organization, wnho.net, and for the Aspartame Toxicity Information Center, in Concord, New Hampshire. Please closely examine the articles by H.J.Roberts, M.D., author of Aspartame Disease: an Ignored Epidemic, and by Neurosurgeon
Russell Blaylock, M.D., author of Exicitoxins: the Taste that Kills.
The Aspartame/formaldehyde and the Thimerosal/mercury in vaccines are tied to
together in these considerations before the two New Mexico Boards, because they are both proven neurotoxins with deadly neurodegenerative effects, and this is the subject of the additional chapter for the Administrative Code.
Such additions are the concerns of the Boards and Commissions. The statutes delineating the entire authority to implement these permanent bans are citedin detail at www.wnho.net, click on aspartame.
It is very clear that a great deal depends on the Attorney General's Opinion as a formal legal document, because if states are powerless to question any FDA approved product, then the corporate plutocracy/kleptocracy and "toxic
idiocracy" which has dumped all of these neurotoxic additives and carcinogens into the American diet and American pharmacology win the right to keep doing so, to the extreme detriment of the health of every American.
The international implications are clear also, since these same corporations like Ajinomoto and many American companies use their products FDA approval to push approval through in hundreds of other nations in the world, by saying: "The FDA has the most stringent approval processes in the world." What a cruel and insidious joke!
Clearly, this is an absurd and flawed bit of logic, and once it is dispensed with and these crumbling mythologies are discarded forever, everyone's health can improve, particularly that of the children in New Mexico, in the United
States, and all over the world.
The aspartame corporate dominoes are beginning to fall, starting in New Mexico, through the relevant regulatory bodies of the state, and this consumer protection effort could take place in every state in the United States, depending on the statutes of each state, and on the energy advocates are willing to devote to this vital and long overdue effort. Just call the Supreme Court Librarian in your state capitol, and ask whether there are statutes banning poisonous additives or harmful adulterants to food and to medicine!
