I believe our country's descent into Hades happened a long time ago, or perhaps we never came close to the objectives stated in the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution.

The approval of Aspartame is proof that the system was corrupt:


Aspartame - History of Getting FDA Approval
By Arizona Center for Advanced Mediciine | June 26, 2013
Aspartame is an artificial sweetener consumed by hundreds of millions of people worldwide. It is used in more than 6,000 diet products including soft drinks, chewing gum, candy, desserts, yogurt as well as in pharmaceuticals -in particular, syrups and antibiotics for children.

Aspartame is sold as ‘NutraSweet,’ ‘Equal,’ and ‘Spoonful.’

One would think something so ubiquitous would be absolutely safe.

Consumer beware.

Aspartame has been controversial since day one. Searle, the manufacturer, had failed to win FDA approval for 16 years and was under investigation for performing fraudulent studies. Aspartame was suddenly approved in 1981 when Donald Rumsfeld, former CEO of Searle and new member of President Ronald Reagan's transition team, appointed a new FDA commissioner.

The controversy never died down. Today for example, the State of New Mexico is attempting to ban aspartame. It is banned in Japan and officially discouraged in China. But in the USA, the FDA and lobbying groups like the Calorie Council continue to proclaim its safety.

A 1996 review of past research conducted on aspartame found that every industry-funded study had said the sweetener was safe to consume. However 92 percent of independent studies claim one or more problems exist with its use, the British newspaper the Guardian reported.

The history of the research and approval process has long been considered suspect. Probably the most thorough collection of that history is presented by Betty Martini, founder of Mission Possible International, a global volunteer force warning the public of aspartame’s dangers.
