I recognised your posting style before I read the post name
Nice to see you're still here, was beginning to miss you after Wade got canned.
I recommend your dad take a look at Stevia as a replacement to sugar. It's natural, virtually no cals and doesn't mess with BS. Several hundred
times sweeter than sugar and has a slight liquorice flavor. I hear Coke is trying to patent it or something like that
On topic, I did a huge amount of research on Aspartame a while back. This nasty chemical has a very dubious history, especially the way it got its FDA
approval. Some interesting names involved too, Rumsfeld for one - now there's a name we can trust
Europe initially resisted the substance but pressure from the Money got it through. In 2005 Roger Williams, a UK Member of Parliament, called for
emergency action to ban the artificial sweetener Aspartame, questioning its safety. The MP said that there was "compelling and reliable evidence for
this carcinogenic substance to be banned from the UK food and drinks market altogether". It's been in and out of the UK press since, but
unfortunately, people are just not waking up yet.
the original Board of Inquiry report of the FDA revoking the petition for approval, along with the famed Dr. John Olney's testimony to the Board
on the damage aspartame would do to the brains of our children if approved and especially in combination with glutamate. Dr. Olney is one of the most
renowned neuroscientists in the world today. You can go to dorway.com and read his CV. He founded the field of neuroscience called excitotoxicity
after doing studies on aspartic acid, 40% of aspartame, and found it caused lesions in the brains of mice. Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D, wrote
the book on it, Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills. An excitotoxin is a product that literally stimulates the neurons of the brain to death. The FDA
agreed with Dr. Olney, no doubt one of the reasons they revoked the petition for approval. Aspartame was finally approved through the politics of Don
Rumsfeld who at the time was CEO of Searle, the original manufacturer.
Dr. Ralph Walton's research on scientific peer reviewed studies and funding which showed 92% of independent, unbiased research shows the
aspartame problems. If you remove 6 studies done by the FDA because after approval they became loyal to the manufacturer, and one proindustry summary,
100% of independent scientific peer reviewed studies showed the problems. Only studies funded or controlled by industry ever said it was safe.
There is SOOOO much damning evidence on this neurotoxin, and direct research by reputable scientists, I find it amazing that people still drink the
stuff, let alone defend it, especially when several natural alternatives are available for those that cannot use sugar.
You'll find several hundred links to start your research here: www.wnho.net...

Apoligies if these are duplicate links or posts, as I am responding to the first page of this topic.
