MY ASPARTAME EXPERIMENT
Not exactly “my experiment” in the sense of an experiment I conducted myself, but the name of an interesting site I found concerning a long term aspartame experiment with rats, “MY ASPARTAME EXPERIMENT”.
I did my aspartame experiment because my family was addicted to diet soda. After researching the effects of aspartame, I strongly believed the artificial sweetener might one day lead to their illness and even early death.
Most influential in my research on the aspartame molecule was The Bressler Report. (3) Dr. Jerome Bressler, M.D., led an FDA task force to attempt to validate the authenticity of a study done by G.D. Searle, the pharmaceutical company that held the patent to the “sweetener.”
Dr. Bressler’s team did the Searle audit between April 25, 1977 and August 4, 1977 of study PT #988S73, a 115 Week Oral Tumorigenicity Study in the Rat. The rat study was supposedly done by Searle to examine the adverse effects of the crystalline form of aspartame’s breakdown from phenylalanine, 50% of the chemical’s composition to SC-19192, diketopiperazine (DKP).
Bressler’s force found irregularities in Searle’s experiment– missing raw data, errors and discrepancies in available data, exclusions of animals, and animals that had masses removed and were then returned to the study.
It is clear Searle misrepresented the carcinogenicity of DKP and hid incriminating data from the FDA.
One unreported tissue mass in Searle’s study measured 5.0 X 4.5 X 2.5 cm. Equivalent to 2 in. X 1.75 in. X 1.0 in. —a significant sized tumor that should be visible to the naked eye, hard to miss.
I was convinced I would see tumors and possibly other harmful effects to convince my family and friends to avoid aspartame.
I said it before and I will say it again, aspartame and products it contains are really really bad and that for humans and animals alike! Aspartame offers no nutritional value whatsoever and therefore anyone even remotely interested in his own health and well being should avoid products containing aspartame at all costs! Aspartame for example, next to many other things, breaks down to formaldehyde, a poison that attacks the nervous system. In the days of old, the days when people were still very ignorant about chemistry, a lot of people lost their eye sight from drinking self-made alcohol containing formaldehyde which comes out as byproduct when making alcohol and has to be removed by a process called distillation.
Basically everyone with even remote knowledge in chemistry knows how dangerous formaldehyde is, feeding products to humans which break down to formaldehyde in the body in this day and age must be seen as an deliberate act to harm them, no one in the field of medicine or chemistry today can claim that he wasn’t aware of the negative effects of formaldehyde, it would be like a lawyer claiming that he wasn’t aware that killing someone constitutes a crime!
