Dear Mr Chubb
I must apologise for my delay in getting back to you further.Â I have had
my staff research the issues you raise, and they have found out the
There has been a great deal of controversy over the effects of some agents
such as ASPARTAME in the recent past and whether its effects are harmful to
humans or not. ASPARTAME is found in amongst over things, chewing gums, it
has been found that aspartame can degrade into DIKETOPIPERAZINE, of which
some are considered to be carcinogenic, i.e. cause cancer.
There has been research done to study the effects of aspartame, the most
recent done in 2005. Researchers with the Cancer Research Centre in
Italyreported that aspartame "causes a dose-related statistically
significant increase in lymphomas and leukemiaâ€™s in female [rats] at dose
levels very near those to which humans can be exposed". However, the report
also found that "no statistically significant increase in malignant brain
tumors was observedâ€.
One concern is that on the Department of Human Services Victoria website,
their food safety link, which contains limited information on such issues,
had to be found from the site map, there was no direct link on the main
page. Food Safety, and the Food Act 1984, is the responsibility of the
Minister for Health, Bronwyn Pike.
It is ultimately the responsibilityÂ of the Australian New Zealand Food
Regulation Council, which is an independent bidy,Â to develop domestic food
regulatory policies. Although, the Health Minister still has responsibility
over the Food Act in Victoria,
This also brings up the issue of making the public more aware of additives
in foods, and some of their harmful effects.
I hope this information is of assistance.

The "poisons" in aspartame though aren't really poisons, per se.
RDIG Shines Light on Overlooked Grant Opportunities
The 31st monthly meeting of the Research Development Group (RDIG) group will take place at noon on Tuesday, Feb. 1 in the Research Building auditorium. The main topic will be research support via Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants. These often-overlooked NIH, CDC and FDA grant mechanisms are funded through set-aside funds. Two faculty members who were recently awarded small business grants will share their experiences: Kevin Cleary, associate professor and deputy director of Imaging Science and Information Systems (ISIS); and Stanley Fricke, assistant professor of neuroscience. For more information, get in touch with Bill Sansalone at firstname.lastname@example.org or 687-2891.
And I've said before, do you honestly think Georgetown would be able to keep it's reputation of highly regarded and outstanding research if another laboratory not funded by the FDA or CDC could easily disprove Georgetown's research?
Now please, Excitable Boy, can we stick to the topic, which is "Natural and Artificial Flavors" ? Time to take your tinfoil hat off and think a little.
Now, this is the interesting part. I read the article you cited. Another article on the same subject said that many of the American microbiologists who were "killed" including Que and Wiley, were working out of Miami. Now, if you do a pubmed or scholar.google.com search for any research published by these men within the years 2001 (the year Que and Wiley were supposedly killed), you can find a literal plethora of research by these men published in mostly 2003. Donald Wiley even published some work on conformation changes of the flu virus in 2005! Wow! That's amazing for a dead man! I didn't try googling any of the others after I found these results for the first two, but I can if you want. Do you?
Let's say that these guys really were working for the government on some super bug. Now, would the government really want to kill off the guys who would be the only ones who could realistically produce a cure? And would these people honestly be able to work on a project like this in a UNIVERSITY laboratory? Have you ever been to Harvard's genetics and microbiology labs? It's nice, but definitely not the place you would want to conduct top secret laboratory work. (Harvard, by the way, is where some of these men are supposed to have done research). Wouldn't that be done in your imaginary demonic CDC somewhere in the bowels of hell, also known as Atlanta in your world?
I vote you get modded and this thread is closed.
